After being left without an opponent for UFC Fight Night 23 due to Chan Sung Jung getting injured, black belt Rani Yahya now knows who his replacement opponent will be on January 22. The former ADCC champion will face former WEC champion Mike Brown, as confirmed by MMAJunkie.com.

And there’s quite a bit on the line, given the amount of sacking the UFC has been doing lately. Rani is coming off back-to-back losses and needs a win to not run risk of getting fired. Nor has Brown been having the best of times, having lost three of his last five fights, the most recent one on January 1 against Diego Nunes.
