UFC Welterweight Dong Hyun Kim

On Friday, it was announced a welterweight shootout between Dong Hyun Kim (pictured) and John Hathaway will headline “The Ultimate Fighter: China Finale” on March 1.

CotaiArena at the Venetian Resort in Macau hosts the festivities.

UFC Fight Pass will stream the event live. Coincidentally (or not), the two-month free trial the UFC is currently offering for their brand new online network ends the night before, so fans will have to pay $9.99/month to watch this show.

Welcome to the new UFC, folks…

Kim will be riding a three-fight winning streak into the scrap. “Stun Gun” was last seen knocking out Erick Silva in October.

Speaking of three straight wins, Hathaway is also perfect through his past trio of bouts. The 26-year-old posted a unanimous decision victory over John Maguire in September.

No other fights have been confirmed for the lineup thus far. However, the rumor mill suggests Hatsu Hioki and Ivan Menjivar will tango in the event.
