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
Franklin against ex- Strikeforce
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.
