Bantamweights Ken Stone and Donny Walker will likely be fighting for their futures in the UFC when they’re slated to square off on the preliminary card of UFC Fight Night 25: Battle on the Bayou on September 17 in New Orleans.
The UFC announced the matchup on Sunday on Twitter.
Stone (9-3) was knocked out by a slam from Eddie Wineland in his lone WEC bout in December before suffering a first-round KO to Scott Jorgensen in his Octagon debut in June. Walker (15-7) dropped a unanimous decision to fellow newcomer Jeff Hougland last Saturday at UFC 132.
UFC Fight Night 25 is headlined by welterweights Jake Shields vs. Jake Ellenberger and also features the return of Alan Belcher against Jason MacDonald.
