An injury has forced former Ultimate Fighter finalist T.J. Dillashaw out of UFC on Fox 5, so another former housemate from that season will fill in to face Mike Easton instead.

Bryan Caraway has accepted the chance to face Easton at UFC on Fox 5 according to UFC officials.

Caraway will fight in Seattle as part of the upcoming card, and as a Washington native he’ll get the chance to compete close to home as well.

Following a long career at featherweight, Caraway made the move down to 135lbs for his last fight where he defeated Mitch Gagnon at UFC 149 in July.

Now the former Ultimate Fighter cast member will look to pick up the biggest win of his new career at bantamweight when he faces Mike Easton at UFC on Fox 5.
