Lightweight Prospects Case and Trevino Meet in Mexico

 

Top lightweight prospects Johnny Case and Francisco Trevino have agreed to meet in the Octagon on June 13 for a UFC 188 bout expected to produce fireworks at the Mexico City Arena.

Case, unbeaten since 2010, has finished both of his UFC bouts thus far, submitting Kazuki Tokudome and knocking out Frankie Perez. The 12-0 Trevino, a native of Mexico City, was victorious in his UFC debut last March, decisioning Renee Forte.

Also added to the UFC 188 card, which is headlined by the UFC heavyweight championship bout between Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum, is a featherweight matchup between exciting strikers Clay Collard and Gabriel Benitez.
