The UFC announced Monday that flyweight contender Wilson Reis will face Octagon newcomer Hector Sandoval on the UFC 201 card on July 30.
Sean Santella originally agreed to fight Reis last week, but was unable to gain proper medical clearance on short notice.
UFC 201, which takes place at Philips Arena in Atlanta, is headlined by the welterweight championship fight between Robbie Lawler and Tyron Woodley. The card airs live on Pay-Per-View.
A member of the Team Alpha Male squad in Sacramento, the 12-2 Sandoval has won several titles on the regional circuit, and he brings a four-fight winning streak into his UFC debut against Reis.
