The WEC's final event is almost fully booked.

Another bout has been added to the card, this one a bantamweight contest pitting surging veteran Eddie Wineland against fresh meat Ken Stone at WEC 53: "Henderson vs Pettis" on Dec. 16 from Glendale, Arizona according to MMAFighting.com.

Wineland has the distinct honor of being the very first WEC Bantamweight Champion, which he won by knocking out Antonio Banuelos back at WEC 20 in May of 2006. Although he lost the title in his first defense of it, he's won five of six fights since and is currently riding a three fight win streak, the last of which earned him a "Knockout of the Night" bonus.

The only roadblock between him and a return to the upper reaches of the division is a WEC new-comer from the well respected American Top Team.

Ken Stone has amassed a record of 9-1 in his short career with every single one of his victories coming by way of stoppage, all but one of which in the first round. He'll look to build another long winning streak and potentially earn a roster spot with the UFC.

WEC 53: "Henderson vs Pettis" is the final event promoted by the nine year old organization before they merge with the UFC. The card will be a headlined by a lightweight championship fight featuring titleholder Benson Henderson vs. top contender Anthony Pettis. Bantamweight Champion Dominick Cruz will defend his strap in the co-main event against the always busy Scott Jorgensen.

The undercard will feature a couple of lightweight wars when Donald Cerrone takes on Chris Horodecki and Jamie Varner throws hands with Shane Roller.
