UFC 150: Henderson vs. Edgar II is expected to take place on August 11, 2012 at Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado featuring a lightweight title rematch between champion Benson Henderson and Frankie Edgar.
Stone has won two straight and is 2-1 since moving the the promotion from the WEC. Stone’s last fight took place almost a month ago at UFC on FX 4 where he won a split decision versus Dustin Pague. Pague was the third opponent for the event for Stone who had Edwin Figueroa and Francisco Rivera withdraw due to injuries.
Perez debuted with the UFC last month, having stepped into the Octagon for the first time as part of the TUF 15 Finale against John Albert. Perez was able to finish Albert with an armbar in the first round to win his sixth straight. The Jackson’s MMA product earned five of those wins with various promotions in 2011 including two inside the BAMMA cage.
