Undefeated Douglas Silva replaces injured Thiago Tavares at UFC Fight Night 36

The injury bug has forced a late change to the UFC Fight Night 36 card in Jaragua do Sul, Brazil.

Longtime UFC veteran Thiago Tavares, who was expected to make his featherweight debut against Zubair Tuhugov, is out with a rib fracture, and the UFC has signed undefeated prospect Douglas Silva as a replacement for the Feb. 15 card. Combate first reported the news.

Silva (22-0, 1 no-contest), who is one of the top 15 Brazilian prospects to watch for in 2014, enters the bout riding a 21-fight win streak with 17 knockout finishes. He was expected to fight for the Jungle Fight bantamweight title next, but leaves the promotion to sign with the UFC and compete in a 145-pound match-up.
Looking at his record, he has a hell of a lot of KO's, but mostly against fighters with lesser records. Should be a good one.

New blood is always good, though a lot of awesome records don't mean squat when you finally come to the UFC. We'll see how things play out.

Brazilian vs. Dagestani usually ends in good news for the Dagestani.
