Joe Stevenson vs. Danny Castillo booked at UFC on Versus 3

A lightweight bout between former title-challenger Joe Stevenson (31-12 MMA, 8-6 UFC) and WEC import Danny Castillo (10-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) is a late addition to March's UFC on Versus 3 event.

Sources close to the event today told ( the bout is in the process of being finalized.

UFC on Versus 3 takes place March 3 at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Ky., and the main card airs on Versus.

Stevenson vs. Castillo could take a televised main-card slot that opened when injured Paulo Thiago recently pulled out of a scheduled fight with Johny Hendricks.

Stevenson looks to shake out of a recent slump that's resulted in four losses in his past six fights, including recent defeats to George Sotiropoulos (decision) and Mac Danzig (knockout). "The Ultimate Fighter 2" winner won five of his first six UFC fights and then fought B.J. Penn for the organization's vacant lightweight belt. But with that submission loss, Stevenson has won just three times in his most recent eight outings.

Castillo recently concluded his WEC career with a 5-3 record following back-to-back wins over fast-rising Dustin Poirier (decision) and Will Kerr (KO). In fact, his only losses in the WEC came to the elite of the division: Donald Cerrone, Shane Roller and Anthony Pettis.

As recently reported, Castillo recently announced he has signed a multi-fight deal with the UFC following the WEC-UFC merger.
