Takeya Mizugaki is getting a new opponent for UFC on Versus 3 and his name is Reuben Duran.

Duran’s agency, Iridium Sports Agency, made the fight announcement via its official Facebook page Monday night. In addition, Duran signed a new contract with the UFC consisting of five fights – the first fight being against the Japanese fighter on March 3.
