UFC on Versus 3: Danny Castillo looking to knockout ‘basic’ Joe Stevenson in Louisville

By Fernando Quiles Jr.

World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) veteran Danny Castillo (10-3) will go one-on-one with former number one lightweight contender and The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season 2 winner, Joe Stevenson (31-12), at UFC on Versus 3 on March 3 in Louisville, Kentucky.

It will mark Castillo’s first appearance inside the Octagon, who made quite a name for himself under the WEC banner, amassing a solid record (5-3) with the promotion.

“Last Call” has only suffered defeat at the hands of top contenders Donald Cerrone and Shane Roller and the last WEC lightweight champion, Anthony Pettis.

Castillo tells Pro MMA Radio that the losses to Roller and Pettis put him in a rough spot.

“It’s a tough feeling,” he said. “After the two fights it was probably a span of eight months. One of the things I like to do the most is to win and not only to win, but to spend money, too. I didn’t win for almost a whole year straight. It was really rough for me. I was going through a tough time in my life, a little bit of depression. [My manager] had to call me and be like, ‘Sean Shelby and Reed Harris are on the verge of maybe cutting your contract.’ I just couldn’t believe it.”
