The Xtreme Couture fighter, who was a last-second replacement opponent for Brock Larson at UFC 98 in May, will now meet the man he replaced, Chris Wilson (14-5 MMA, 1-2 UFC), at UFC Fight Night 19 in Oklahoma City. ( confirmed with sources close to the negotiations that the fight isn't signed but that bout agreements will be finalized this week for the Sept. 16 matchup, which was first reported by MMA FanHouse on Sunday.

UFC Fight Night 19, which serves as a lead-in for the debut episode of "The Ultimate Fighter 10," takes place at the Cox Convention Center and airs on Spike TV.

Pyle was submitted in the first round of his May UFC debut after struggling to cut weight for the contest. The loss snapped a four-fight win streak for Pyle, who previously fought for the WEC, Affliction, Strikeforce, M-1 and the now-defunct EliteXC and IFL organizations.

The Xtreme Couture welterweight, who turned pro in 1999, finds himself in a must-win situation if he hopes to remain in the UFC.
