Uriah Hall has his next bout much sooner than expected, as the UFC has announced that the middleweight is stepping in for the injured Derek Brunson on June 20th.

Brunson was scheduled to face Krzysztof Jotko at the Berlin bound event, however, a rib injury has forced him to withdraw.

Hall (10-5) is coming off a very, tightly contested, split decision loss to Rafael Natal at UFC 187 last month. Prior to that the noted striker had won three straight.

Jotko (15-1), on the other hand, earned a decision win over Tor Troeng in October, and has gone 2-1 in UFC action thus far.

UFC FN 69 will be headlined by a strawweight fight between champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Jessica Penne.

The card will be hosted by the 02 World Berlin.
