This Saturday’s UFC Vegas 67 card has undergone a late change-up.

With Isaac Dulgarian out of his fight with Dan Argueta (8-1), promotion newcomer Nick Aguirre (7-0) is stepping up to save the bout on short notice.

Iridium Sports Agency, who represent Aguirre, was first to report news of the switch on Tuesday.

Having picked up a submission win just last month, the 7-0 Nick “Slick” Aguirre remains undefeated in his professional career. Four of those seven wins have come via submission, and all seven have been stoppages, giving Aguirre a 100% finish rate.

Argueta, who appeared on The Ultimate Fighter 29, had won three straight under the LFA banner before arriving in the UFC last year, where he lost his debut against Damon Jackson. He’ll be looking to bounce back from that first career loss at UFC Vegas 67 this Saturday.

  • Sean Strickland vs. Nassourdine Imavov
  • Dan Ige vs. Damon Jackson
