Petr Yan will have a home turf bout after his impressive Octagon debut.

The former ACB bantamweight champion is slated to face Douglas Silva de Andrade at the UFC Moscow card on Sept. 15, sources confirmed to MMA Fighting following a report by ESPN.

Yan (9-1) entered the UFC on a three-fight winning streak and made quick work of Teruto Ishihara in June, winning by TKO in less than four minutes. The 25-year-old prospect finished five of his nine professional victories so far.

Andrade (25-2), who has more cage experience than his opponent, holds a 3-2 UFC record capped off by a decision win over Marlon Vera. The former Jungle Fight champion won 22 in a row with 18 knockouts before joining the UFC in 2014.

UFC Moscow takes place at the Olimpiyskiy Arena and features Mark Hunt vs. Alexey Oleinik in the main event.
