A lightweight clash between Francisco Trevino and Johnny Case has been booked for UFC 188.

Promotion officials on Friday confirmed the pairing, which was originally supposed to occur Jan. 18 at UFC Fight Night Boston. UFC 188 takes place at Mexico City Arena in Mexico City on June 13 and is headlined by a heavyweight title tilt between Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum.

Trevino, who had to pull out of the first matchup with Case due to injury, is unbeaten in 12 professional appearances. His lone UFC bout came in March 2014, when he captured a unanimous decision victory against Renee Forte.

Case enters the bout on a 10-fight winning streak -- including two triumphs in the Octagon. “Hollywood” submitted Kazuki Tokudome in his promotional debut at UFC Fight Night in Japan before stopping Frankie Perez in the third round on Jan. 18.
