Scott Jorgensen will look to get back on the path to the top of the bantamweight division when he faces Ken Stone at the upcoming “Ultimate Fighter” 13 finale show in June.
The bantamweight bout is the latest edition to the growing card taking place on June 4 in Las Vegas. Sources close to the negotiations confirmed the fight to MMAWeekly.com on Monday. Heavy.com initially reported the booking.
Jorgensen (11-4) returns to action for the first time since suffering a loss to UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz last December. The Idaho native was riding a 5-fight win streak before falling to the current title holder at 135lbs.
Ken Stone (9-2) will definitely try to make more out of his UFC debut than he did his WEC debut when he gets back in the cage in June. Stone suffered a vicious knockout loss to former WEC champion Eddie Wineland in December during his first fight with the promotion.
There has been no official announcement about the June 4 card, but it is expected to be headed up by former WEC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis against Clay Guida in the main event.
