Dustin Poirier at WEC 52
An injury has forced Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace Rani Yahya off UFC 131. British fighter Jason Young has been tapped to face Dustin Poirier on the card instead.
The UFC announced the switch on Tuesday.
Jason Young (8-3) comes to the UFC as the former Cage Rage lightweight champion, and winner of his last two bouts.
Young is a dangerous striker who also has dangerous ground skills to boot.
The bout between Poirier and Young will remain on the undercard for the June 11 event happening in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
