Welterweights David Mitchell and Hyun Gyu Lim will square off at UFC on Fuel TV 6, completing the event’s 10-fight bill.

Lim was initially expected to face unbeaten Marcelo Guimaraes at the event before Guimares was forced to withdraw due to injury. UFC on Fuel TV 6 is headlined by a middleweight showdown pitting former a href="http://www.sherdog.com/organizations/Ultimate-Fighting-Championship-2">UFC champion Rich Franklin against ex- Strikeforce king Cung Le and takes place Nov. 10 at CotaiArena in Cotai, Macau. The show’s preliminary draw streams live on Facebook, while the main card broadcast follows on Fuel TV.

Mitchell, 33, rides back-to-back defeats heading into his showdown with Lim. “Daudi” last competed in August 2011, dropping a one-sided unanimous decision to Paulo Thiago at UFC 134. Mitchell, who began his career a perfect 11-0, was also defeated in his Octagon foray by T.J. Waldburger in September 2010.

Lim, meanwhile, makes his UFC debut on the strength of five consecutive wins. The 27-year-old Korean previously competed under the M-1 Global banner but has more recently done his work in the Pacific Xtreme Combat promotion, winning that organization’s welterweight title on July 28 by submitting Ryan Bigler with a guillotine choke.
