One-time UFC title contender and former Bellator champion Joe Soto has agreed to step in and fight Chris Beal next month at UFC Fight Night 89.

Soto (15-5) has dropped three straight, including a 2014 loss to then-UFC champion T.J. Dillashaw. The California native stepped in on short notice after Renan Barao was forced out of the championship match.

Beal (10-2), also of California, was set to meet Kid Yamamoto at the card. After earning a pair of wins in his first two UFC fights, Beal has dropped two straight.

UFC Fight Night 89 takes place June 18 from the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Rory MacDonald fights Stephen Thompson in the main event.
