Ray is trying to get back in the win column after a loss to Alan Patrick Silva Alves at UFC Fight Night 95 in September.

Pearson has not yet responded to the change on social media, but it seems one can assume he should be able to adjust his sights on Ray.

The 32-year-old former TUF winner will try to break a two-fight losing skid with an impressive win.

Ian McCall (13-5-1) vs Neil Seery (16-12-0)

Ross Pearson (19-12-0) vs Stevie Ray (19-6-0)
