Less than a week after quickly submitting Jared Papazian, Dustin Pague (Pictures) has agreed to serve as a last-minute substitute to replace injured Francisco Rivera and fight Ken Stone next Friday at “UFC on FX: Maynard vs. Guida.”
Pague marks Stone’s third opponent, as Edwin Figueroa was hurt and replaced by Rivera just a couple of weeks ago.
Stone has alternated between wins and losses over his past six scraps. He was last seen tapping Donny Walker in September.
Revel in Atlantic City, New Jersey hosts next Friday’s bash.
FX will broadcast the main card live starting at 9PM ET/6PM PT. However, Pague vs. Stone kicks off the prelims on the UFC’s Facebook page at 5PM ET/2PM PT.
