UFC Octagon LogoUFC officials on Saturday announced a bantamweight showdown between Ken Stone and Erik Perez has been added to the UFC 150 fight card slated for Aug. 11 in Denver.

The bout follows Friday’s announcement of Donald Cerrone vs. Melvin Guillard in the Mile High City.

Stone (11-3) is on a two-fight winning streak with victories over Donny Walker and Dustin Pague. The American Top Team 135-pounder is now 2-2 under the Zuffa banner after a rough go in his first two fights for the company.

Things won’t get easier for him in Perez, however. The 22-year-old Jackson’s fighter is 11-4 in his professional career and is on a streak of six consecutive victories. That includes a victory over John Albert in his Octagon debut at The Ultimate Fighter 15 Finale.

A lightweight championship rematch between Benson Henderson and Frankie Edgar headlines the UFC 150 fight card.
