By Brian Knapp Aug 18, 2011
American Top Team’s Ken Stone will collide with Donny Walker in a preliminary bantamweight matchup at UFC Fight Night 25 on Sept. 17 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. Eleven fights are now official for the event, which will air live on Spike TV.

Stone (9-3, 0-1 UFC) last fought at “The Ultimate Fighter 13” Finale in June, when he suffered a ground-and-pound-induced knockout against the world-ranked Scott Jorgensen at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. The 28-year-old former American Fighting Organization champion wrestled collegiately at Bridgewater State University in Massachusetts. Stone (Pictured, file photo) has delivered all nine of his professional victories by knockout, technical knockout or submission.

Walker (15-7, 0-1 UFC) made his promotional debut at UFC 132 in July, when he lost a unanimous decision to fellow Octagon rookie Jeff Hougland at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The defeat snapped his seven-fight winning streak. Walker, 31, owns notable wins against current Bellator Fighting Championships featherweight Kenny Foster and Strikeforce veteran Billy Vaughan. He has not lost consecutive fights in nearly three years.

A key welterweight showdown between former title contender Jake Shields and the surging Jake Ellenberger will headline UFC Fight Night 25, along with a middleweight matchup pairing “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 11 winner Court McGee with Dongi Yang. The event will also feature a featherweight battle matching “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 12 winner Jonathan Brookins with Erik Koch and a middleweight tilt pitting Alan Belcher against Jason MacDonald.
