By Tristen Critchfield Aug 19, 2018
Deep veteran Jin Soo Son will step in for the injured Douglas Silva de Andrade and face Petr Yan at UFC Fight Night 136.

Yan confirmed the change on Instagram following an initial report from ESPN.com. UFC Fight Night 136 takes place at Olympic Stadium in Moscow, Russia and is headlined by a heavyweight tilt between Mark Hunt and Alexey Oleynik. The card will stream in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass.

Son, a 25-year-old native of South Korea, has won his last four bouts under the Deep banner. Most recently, he earned a second-round technical knockout triumph against Toshiaki Kitada on April 28. Son owns a 9-2 professional record, with six of those triumphs coming inside the distance.

Yan, meanwhile, had an impressive Octagon debut, as he stopped Teruto Ishihara with punches 3:28 into the opening stanza of their encounter at UFC Fight Night 132 on June 23. The 25-year-old Russian is 9-1 with four wins by KO/TKO and one via submission.
