Edwin Figueroa in against Michael McDonald at UFC Fight Night 24

Bantamweight Nick Pace was set to fight against Michael McDonald at UFC Fight Night 24. However, he has been replaced by an undefeated fighter, Edwin Figueroa, after an injury forced him off the card.

MMAWeekly broke the news of the fight, which takes place on March 26 at the Key Arena in Seattle.

During his four-plus years in the sport, Figueroa has built a perfect 7-0 record. In his last fight, he scored the biggest win of his career when he knocked out Bellator veteran Johnny Bedford 17 seconds into the second round of their August fight.

Since suffering his first career loss at the hands of former WEC champion Cole Escovedo at PFC 13, McDonald has been on a roll. He has now won four-fights in a row, including victories over former WEC title challenger Manny Tapia, a rematch with Escovedo and his WEC debut over Clint Godfrey.

Headlining UFC Fight Night 24 is a light heavyweight match up between former NCAA champion Phil Davis and Pride FFC veteran Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
