UFC on Fuel TV 6 has undergone a recent change.

Alex Caceres on Saturday drew new opponent Motonobu Tezuka, as his original opposition, Kyung Ho Kang, had to withdraw from the card.

Caceres (7-5) will be looking to build some momentum as he enters this fight in Macao on the heels of a victory over Damacio Page at UFC on Fuel TV 4 over the summer.

He’ll now be facing Tezuka instead of Kang, however.

Tezuka (19-4-4) will be making his Octagon debut after working his way up the ladder in Japan. He is 12-1 in his last 13 bouts, fighting primarily for Pancrase and DEEP over the past several years.

Rich Franklin vs. Cung Le heads UFC on Fuel TV 6 on Nov. 10 in Macao, China.
