01-Matt-Mitrione-TUF-Finale-16-weigh-478x270Just a day after it was announced that Dong Hyun Kim would face John Hathaway in the main event of the TUF China Finale on March 1 at The Venetian Macau’s CotaiArena, UFC Asia Managing Director Mark Fischer confirmed three additional fights for the card.

In a heavyweight clash, Shawn Jordan will take on Matt Mitrione with both fighters desperate to get back to their winning ways after recent losses. At featherweight it’s the same case for Hatsu Hioki and Ivan Menjivar, who have both lost their last three and two fights respectively. And in a South Korea vs. Japan lightweight contest, Kazuki Tokudome welcomes Yui Chul Nam to the Octagon.

Also on the main card will be the two The Ultimate Fighter finale fights in the featherweight and welterweight divisions, with Cung Le saying that all the finalists are exciting fighters who have what it takes to go far in the UFC.

The show will be streamed on the UFC’s new subscription based digital platform, UFC Fight Pass.
