Dustin Pague will be looking for his second Octagon win in as many weeks when he takes on Ken Stone at UFC on FX 4 next Friday.

The promotion recently announced that “The Ultimate Fighter 14” cast member will replace the injured Francisco Rivera in next week’s bantamweight bout, which takes place at Revel Atlantic City in Atlantic City, N.J. Rivera had agreed to step in for Stone’s original foe, Edwin Figueroa, who also withdrew from the contest due to injury.

Pague made short work of Jared Papazian last week, submitting the former King of the Cage champion with a rear-naked choke at 3:21 of the opening frame in their UFC on FX 3 encounter. It was a welcome turnaround from Pague’s UFC debut, where he was knocked out by John Albert in the first round at the “TUF 14” Finale.

Stone, meanwhile, has split a pair of UFC appearances, suffering a first-round TKO to Scott Jorgensen last June before submitting Donny Walker in September. All 10 of the American Top Team product’s career victories have come by knockout, technical knockout or submission.

UFC on FX 4 features a five-round lightweight main event scrap between Clay Guida and Gray Maynard. The four-bout main card will be broadcast on FX, while six preliminary contests will be shown on Fuel TV. Stone-Pague and a welterweight tilt between Dan Miller and Ricardo Funch are expected to air on Facebook.
