On Saturday, Dong Hyun Kim and John Hathaway will headline a fight card that also features a The Ultimate Fighter: China final.
Nearing welterweight title contention, Kim and Hathaway will both be looking for a fourth straight win this weekend. An impressive victory in the main event would likely earn the winner a shot at a Top 10 170-pounder in their next outing.
Fellow 170-pounders Wang Sai and Zhang Lipeng are at a very different stage in their careers, but the TUF: China finalists will be competing in a hugely important matchup of their own. The winner will earn a guaranteed UFC contract and could become the face of Chinese MMA.
Unfortunately, featherweight finalists Jianping Yang and Guangyou Ning will not be competing this weekend. Their bout has been delayed due to an undisclosed injury.
The TUF: China Finale weigh-ins will be held on Friday at 5 a.m. ET. When the weigh-ins begin, live streaming video will be available on the video player above.
