Lucas Martins will make his UFC debut later this month at UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Bisping. Martins will replace Justin Salas and face Edson Barboza.
The card goes down January 19 from Sao Paulo, Brazil. Vitor Belfort and Michael Bisping collide in the main event.
Martins (11-0) earned two wins in December in Sao Paulo, fighting just a week apart both times. The victories were each stoppage triumphs. He finished 2012 9-0 in the calendar year.
Barboza (10-1) will be looking to rebound from his first loss to Jamie Varner in May.
