UFC Welterweight Dong Hyun Kim

On Monday, a welterweight scrap between Dong Hyun Kim (Pictured) and Sean Pierson was added to the UFC 141 roster. The December 30th event takes place inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“Two talented welterweights on the comeback trail will face off at UFC 141 when Sean Pierson takes on the ‘Stun Gun’ Dong Hyun Kim,” said UFC president Dana White.

Kim holds an impressive 14-1-1 ( 1 NC ) record, but suffered a devastating TKO loss to Carlos Condit at UFC 132 when he ate a flying knee. The Korean had won three straight fights prior to the July defeat.

Pierson was last seen getting put to sleep by Jake Ellenberger at UFC 129 in April.

The pay-per-view broadcast will be headlined by a heavyweight top contender bout between Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem.

Here is the card’s updated roster:

Sean Pierson vs. Dong Hyun Kim

Vladimir Matyushenko vs. Alexander Gustafsson

Jon Fitch vs. Johny Hendricks

Alistair Overeem vs. Brock Lesnar
