Roman Kopylov will step in for Chris Curtis to fight Anthony Hernandez at Noche UFC, according to confirmation from MMA Hook with sources knowledgeable about the bout. The event, set for September 16, will feature Kopylov as a replacement for Curtis, though the reason for Curtis’s withdrawal remains undisclosed.

Kopylov is riding a wave of success after a shaky start to his UFC career with 0-2. With a record of 11-2, he’s recently won three consecutive fights by knockout. His latest victory was against Claudio Ribeiro at UFC 291, where he pulled off a stunning head kick.

Hernandez is on a roll as well, looking to continue his win streak after defeating his last four rivals. In May, he earned a third-round TKO against Edmen Shahbazyan and has also triumphed over Marc-Andre Barriault and Rodolfo Vieira during his successful run. His UFC record is currently 5-2.

The highlight of Noche UFC will be a flyweight championship rematch between Alexa Grasso and Valentina Shevchenko, taking place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Reporters Mike Heck and Damon Martin also provided information for this news.
