With Paulo Thiago vs. Johny Hendricks now off UFC On Versus 3 due to a Thiago injury, it appears that Joe Stevenson vs. Danny Castillo will be a late addition to fill the card. Although the planned bout's placement is not ye tknown it could replace Thiago-Hendricks on the TV card.

Might see Daddy going back to Grapplin' Joe, but Im hoping Castillo wins.

I'm not a big fan of Joe's but I'd hate to see him lose and get his walking papers. I think the guy deserves to be in the UFC.

Joe has the worst striking at 155 and he continues to strike primarily.

I'd like to see new blood win and keep 155 interesting.

Not the replacement I wanted, but a decent matchup. I like watching Stevenson fight, I just don't know why.

I like this match-up. It's a pretty good test for Castillo's UFC debut, and I feel style wise they are very similar. Both are strong wrestlers who like to strike.

I want to say Castillo has the advantage striking, as I've actually seen him KO people. However Daddy has been fighting tougher competition in the UFC than Castillo was in WEC....
