Yesterday we reported that Dong Hyun Kim will be welcoming back John Hathaway to the Octagon in the main event of the TUF China Finale in March. The event added another exciting matchup today as UFC Heavyweights, Shawn Jordan and Matt Mitrione, will face up in what looks to be the co-main event of the evening.
Matt Mitrione (6-3 UFC) is 1-3 is his last four fights. In his last fight, at UFC 165, Mitrione was brutally choked out by a D’arce choke in the first round courtesy of Brendan Schaub. Mitrione’s job is certainly on the chopping block leading up this fight. If he does not win, he could be looking for work elsewhere.
Shawn Jordan (15-5, 3-2 UFC) recently had his two fight winning streak ended at the hands of Gabriel Gonzaga at UFC 166. Gonzaga clipped Jordan early, and finished him off in under two minutes. Jordan will look to rebound against Mitrione in March.
The TUF: China Finale will take place on March 1st at the Cotai Arena in Macau. Here is the card thus far:
Dong Hyun Kim vs John Hathaway
Matt Mitrione vs Shawn Jordan
Ivan Menjivar vs Hatsu Hioki
Kazuki Tokudome vs Yui Chul Nam
TUF China Welterweight Finalist vs TUF China Welterweight Finalist
TUF China Featherweight Finalist vs TUF Chine Featherweight Finalist
