Last week, Carlos Diego Ferreira, Trujillo's original opponent, was removed from the UFC Fight Night 88 card due to a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation in a recent out-of-competition drug test with USADA, leaving Trujillo without an opponent. However, lightweight fighter Jordan Rinaldi has stepped up on short notice to face the Blackzillians fighter.
UFC newcomer Rinaldi (12-4) currently finds himself in a five-fight wining streak. He last competed in December at Fight Lab Promotions 52, submitting Lashawn Alcocks in the second round with an arm-bar. The North Carolina fighter holds seven submission wins and has competed promotions such as World Series Of Fighting, Resurrection Fighting Alliance and Legacy Fighting Championship.
