Trevino is expected to debut at “Legacy FC 20: Assuncao vs. Pecero” against an opponent yet to be named. Legacy FC 20 takes place May 31 at American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Born in Mexico but now living as a naturalized citizen of the U.S. in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, Trevino has earned eight of his 10 wins via stoppage, including four knockouts and four submissions.

Earlier this month, Trevino was featured in an profile in which he stated his desire to become the face of Mexican MMA, a title currently owned by UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez.

“He wears ‘Brown Pride’ tattooed on his chest,” Trevino said of Velasquez. “He should have that erased, I’m sorry. If you’re going to wear a tat on your chest, live up to it. It’s not just fighting. It’s the love of the people. That’s brown pride.”

Trevino is expected to compete as a welterweight for Legacy FC.
