Scott Jorgensen will remain on the December UFC on FOX 9 card, and gets a former title-contender in his debut at flyweight.
Jorgensen has agreed to meet John Dodson after an injury took Ian McCall out of action.
The card is set for December 14 from Sacramento and features a UFC lightweight title fight in the main event between Anthony Pettis and Josh Thomson.
Dodson (15-6), a former Ultimate Fighter winner, rebounded from his first UFC loss to champion Demetrious Johnson by stopping Darrell Montague just over a week ago.
Jorgensen (14-7) went 3-3 at bantamweight before deciding to move down to flyweight. His losses came at the hands of Urijah Faber, Eddie Wineland and Renan Barao.
