Former Bellator champion Joe Soto will try to snap a three-fight losing skid when he meets Chris Beal at UFC Fight Night 89.

Officials announced the change recently for the June 18 event from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Rory MacDonald and Stephen Thompson serve as the main event.

Soto (15-5) steps in as a replacement for Kid Yamamoto, who removed himself from the fight due to injury. The California native joins Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger on the card.
