Dong Hyun Kim vs. John Hathaway to headline TUF: China Finale


Prior to Friday’s weigh-ins for UFC Fight Night 34, the UFC announced that the season finale of The Ultimate Fighter: China on March 1st at the Cotai Arena in Macau. It was also announced that a welterweight bout between Dong Hyun Kim and John Hathaway would headline the event, as both fighters were announced to the crowd.

Dong Hyun Kim, who is the No. 12 ranked fighter in the UFC, will be looking to continue his current three-fight winning streak. His most recent outing was an impressive knockout win over Erick Silva at UFC Fight Night 29 back in October of 2013.

For Hathaway, he will also be looking to build on his previous three wins. However, Hathaway will need to shake off some cage rust after being out of action for over a year. Hathaway’s last octagon appearance was a unanimous decision win over John Maguire in September of 2012.

The featherweight and welterweight finals of the TUF: China will also be featured on the main card of the March 1 event.
