With Stanislav Nedkov sidelined, undefeated heavyweight prospect Caio Magalhaes has stepped in to face fellow Brazilian Fabio Maldonado at UFC 142 on January 14 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, according to MMAWeekly.

Maldonado (18-3) scored a third-round TKO of James McSweeney in his Octagon debut at UFC 120 before dropping a unanimous decision to Kyle Kingsbury at The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale in June, while Magalhaes (5-0) has fought exclusively in Brazil, where he’s earned a perfect 5-0 record.

UFC 142 is headlined by UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo vs. Chad Mendes and also features Vitor Belfort vs. Anthony Johnson.
