Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has added a couple of bantamweight bangers to its upcoming network televised fight card from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn., on Fri., Jan. 20, 2012.

UFC on FX 1 will see 135-pound veterans Ken Stone and Mike Easton mix it up for a spot in the division's increasingly competitive title chase when the promotion heads to "Music City" later this month.

Stone (10-3) suffered back-to-back sleepers against Eddie Wineland and Scott Jorgensen under the Zuffa banner; however, the American Top Team product was able to rebound with an impressive finish (rear naked choke) over Donny Walker back in September.

Opposing him is Easton, the 11-1 "Hulk" who smashed his way through D.C.'s regional circuit before making a successful UFC debut against Byron Bloodworth, knocking him out at UFC on Versus 6 last October.

Here's what the UFC on FX fight card looks like with just over two weeks to go:

Main Event:

155 lbs.: Melvin Guillard vs. Jim Miller

Main Card (FX Channel):

155 lbs.: Duane Ludwig vs. Josh Neer
135 lbs.: Mike Easton vs. Ken Stone
265 lbs.: Pat Barry vs. Christian Morecraft

Preliminary Card (May not be broadcast):

UFC on FX 1 will feature two top lightweight contenders, Jim Miller and Melvin Guillard, headlining the event and looking to continue their march back to the top of the 155-pound totem pole.

Also penciled in for the "Guillard vs. Miller" fight card is a heavyweight battle between Pat Barry and Christian Morecraft, as well as a welterweight slugfest that pits Josh Neer vs. Duane Ludwig.
