With the UFC's first FX-televised live event just three weeks away, the promotion still had one more fight to add to the card and it's now official that bantamweights Mike Easton and Ken Stone will throw down in Nashville.

Easton was one of the most highly regarded bantamweights outside the UFC before finally making his Octagon debut in October, when he brutalized short-notice replacement, Byron Bloodworth, with a mixed assault of knees and punches to earn the second round TKO victory. "The Hulk" has been frequently seen in the corner of UFC bantamweight champion, Dominick Cruz, as the two train together under Lloyd Irvin, with Easton earning a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Irvin.

Stone was unfortunately best known for being the victim of two brutal knockouts in a row against Eddie Wineland and Scott Jorgensen. It appeared that matchmaker, Joe Silva, took pity on the American Team Product and matched him up against an easier opponent, and Stone took full advantage, dispatching Donny Walker via rear naked choke at UFN 25 in September.
