A bantamweight bout has been added to the UFC on FX 1 fight card later this month with Mike Easton taking on Ken Stone.
UFC officials announced the new booking on Monday.
Rated as one of the top bantamweight prospects in the sport, Easton finally got his shot at the big time when he debuted at UFC on Versus 6 last October.
The longtime training partner of UFC champion Dominick Cruz finished Byron Bloodworth while fighting in his hometown of Washington D.C. Now, he’ll hit the road to Nashville for his second trip to the Octagon.
Despite a 1-2 record combined in three fights under the Zuffa banner, Stone has proven he belongs in the UFC’s bantamweight division.
The American Top Team fighter has shown up in all of his fights, and finally got a win in his last fight as he dominated and finished Donny Walker at UFC Fight Night 25 in New Orleans last September.
The new bout will be added to UFC on FX 1 airing Friday, Jan. 20, from Nashville.
