The UFC announced Tuesday featherweight Bektic will face Russell Doane. Doane takes the fight on five days' notice and is the third-announced opponent for Bektic.
Bektic was originally set to face Arnold Allen, but the British fighter had to withdraw due to injury. A replacement in Jeremy Kennedy was eventually announced as Allen's replacement, but he, too, was injured and forced to withdraw from the bout.
Bektic, 25, is 3-0 in the UFC and undefeated in his career, generally, with a record of 10-0. He last fought at UFC Fight Night 67 in May of 2015 when he defeated Lucas Martins in the second round via TKO.
Doane, 30, enters this bout on a three-fight losing streak with a 2-3 record in the UFC and 14-6 professional record. He last competed at UFC Fight Night 90 in July.
UFC 204 takes place at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England on Saturday, Oct. 8th.
