Eddie WinelandFormer TFC and WEC Bantamweight champion Eddie Wineland has been scheduled to face Ken Stone (9-1) at WEC 53 on Dec. 16 in Glenndale, Arizona. I say scheduled because Wineland’s last 3 scheduled bouts were all changed.

Wineland was supposed to face Damacio Page at WEC 52 in November, but a shoulder injury forced him to withdraw from that bout. Prior to that he was supposed to fight Charlie Valencia at WEC 49, but Valencia backed out because of injury. Wineland instead fought replacement Will Campuzano and KO’d him, winning “Knockout of the Night” honors. In January of this year, Wineland was scheduled to face Rafael Rebello, but then Rebello got hurt. He ended up facing George Roop and beating him by decision.

Wineland has won 3 straight since his loss to Rani Yahya here in Chicago at WEC 40. Now he fights Stone, who will be making his WEC debut.
