Report: Ivan Menjivar vs. Hatsu Hioki set for TUF: China finale

For those who are unaware, there is currently an international of The Ultimate Fighter taking place in China. The finale for TUF: China is expected to take place at the Cotai Arena in Macau, China on March 1 and it will reportedly include a bout between Hatsu Hioki and Ivan Menjivar.

Top MMA News passed along the report.

Both fighters are currently riding losing streaks after being unable to record a win in 2013, which means that the loser of this fight could be handed their walking papers from the UFC.

Menjivar (25-11) lost decisions to Urijah Faber and Wilson Reis in 2013, while Hioki (26-7-2) lost to Clay Guida and Darren Elkins. Hioki also lost to Ricardo Lamas back in 2012 to bring his losing streak to three fights.

There is no word on what weight class the bout will take place at, but it looks like it could be at bantamweight. If that is the case, Hioki will be moving down a weight class as he looks to revive his career.
