Rising bantamweight star Petr Yan has his next assignment, and it's undoubtedly the toughest test of his UFC career.
Yan (11-1) will meet John Dodson (20-10) on Feb. 23 in Prague, Czech Republic, multiple sources told ESPN.
Yan has won his last six fights in a row. He most recently defeated Douglas Silva de Andrade via TKO at UFC 232 last month. He announced on Thursday that he signed a new four-fight deal with the UFC.
Dodson, a former two-time flyweight title contender, will look to bounce back from his unanimous decision loss to Jimmie Rivera at UFC 228 in September.
