An injury has forced bantamweight Ken Stone out of his matchup against Mike Easton at UFC on FX 1 just one day after the bout was announced for main card of the January 20 event in Nashville, Tennessee, the UFC announced Tuesday.
Stone (10-3) submitted Donny Walker in the first round at UFC Fight Night 25 in September after dropping his Octagon debut to contender Scott Jorgensen.
The UFC is now searching for another short-notice replacement to face Easton (11-1), who knocked out fellow newcomer Byron Bloodworth in the second round at UFC on Versus 6 in October for his sixth-straight win.
UFC on FX 1 is headlined by lightweights Melvin Guillard and Jim Miller and also features Duane “Bang” Ludwig vs. Josh Neer and Pat Barry vs. Christian Morecraft on its televised card.
