UFC Matt Mitrione

Bright and early while most Americans were still tucked away in their comfy and cozy beds, and minutes before the UFC was set to make their debut in Singapore, the planet’s premier MMA promotion held a press conference to confirm their return to Macau.

“The Ultimate Fighter: China Finale” takes place March 1 inside CotaiArena inside the Venetian Resort in China. As reported yesterday, a welterweight shootout between Dong Hyun Kim and John Hathaway headlines the gig.

On Saturday, a trio of other scraps were added to the lineup.

Heavyweight Matt Mitrione (pictured) meets Shawn Jordan, featherweights Hatsu Hioki and Ivan Menjivar will collide and Yui Chul Nam faces Kazuki Tokudome.

The event will be made available to watch exclusively on UFC Fight Pass. Unfortunately, the online network’s two-month free trial ends the night prior to this event. Therefore, you will have to pay $9.99/month to stream this show.

Here is the card’s current lineup:

Yui Chul Nam vs. Kazuki Tokudome

Hatsu Hioki vs. Ivan Menjivar

Shawn Jordan vs. Matt Mitrione

Dong Hyun Kim vs. John Hathaway
