Trevino enters the Octagon undefeated, having won all 11 of his professional bouts. His first 10 victories came under the banner of South Texas Fighting Championships, before moving on to Legacy Fighting Championship in November, where he defeated Lester Batres to earn a shot in the UFC.
Forte (8-3) has three bouts under his belt in the Octagon, but has a mere 1-2 record to show for it. He is coming off of a loss to John Makdessi at UFC 165 last September. A loss to Trevino would put his UFC tenure on shaky ground.
