The decision by Paul Felder to take a fight vs. Danny Castillo at UFC 182 has opened the door for Francisco Trevino.
Trevino will now meet Johnny Case in January at UFC Fight Night 59, a few weeks after UFC 182 takes place. Felder is replacing Rustham Khabilov, who was forced out with visa issues.
Felder (9-0) earned a victory over Jason Saggo via split decision in October, while Castillo (17-7) is looking to rebound from a loss to Tony Ferguson.
Trevino (12-0) won his Octagon debut, while Case (19-4) did the same.
