Yaotzin Meza has been tabbed as a replacement for Hacran Dias, stepping in to face Chad Mendes at UFC on FX 6 Friday night.
The card goes down from Australia. The Mendes-Meza bout is expected to be the main event for the prelims.
Meza (18-7) is a training partner of Benson Henderson and Jamie Varner at the MMA Lab in Arizona. He will be making his UFC debut.
Mendes is coming off a victory over Cody McKenzie. Dias was announced as injured early last week.
