The UFC’s debut event in mainland China has a few new official fight-card additions.
Officials recently announced heavyweights Cyril Asker (8-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC) vs. James Mulheron (11-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) and welterweights Alex Garcia (14-4 MMA, 4-3 UFC) vs. Muslim Salikhov (12-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC).
UFC Fight Night 122 which takes place Nov. 25 at Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai. The entire card streams on UFC Fight Pass, though the full lineup hasn’t been finalized.
Asker, a 31-year-old Frenchman, looks to rebound from a 104-second TKO loss to Walt Harris at UFC Fight Night 111 in June. A fight prior, he scored his first UFC victory after knocking out Dmitry Smoliakov in the first round. The former EFC champion now meets Mulheron, a 29-year-old Englishman and longtime M4tC champion who recently made his UFC and suffered a decision loss to Justin Willis, which sapped a four-fight winning streak.
Garcia, meanwhile, recently suffered a decision defeat to Tim Means. A fight prior, the 30-year-old Dominican fighter scored his first fight-night bonus with a thunderous first-round knockout of Mike Pyle. He now meets Salikhov, a 33-year-old Russian who makes his UFC debut on the strength of a 10-fight winning streak that includes nine consecutive stoppage victories.
