Stepping in for “El Feroz” will be Francisco Rivera (8-2), who recently rejoined the Zuffa ranks with a unanimous decision victory over Alex Soto at UFC on Fuel 3. Rivera was previously bounced from the WEC after an 0-2 run, but now sits comfortably as part of the UFC 135 lb. division.
Ken Stone most recently broke a two-fight skid with a first round rear-naked choke victory over Donny Walker at UFC Fight Night 25. With that win, Stone continued his streak of stoppages in fights he’s won, pushing his record to a perfect 10 stoppages.
