According to a report, a featherweight fight featuring some recognizable names has been added to the TUF China Finale in March.

It appears that the first bout has been added to the TUF China Finale on March 1st in Cotai Arena in Macau. The fight hasn't been officially announced as of yet, but Canadian website Top MMA News is reporting that the featherweight bout is set. Here's what they have to say:

Top MMA News has learned Ivan Menjivar will face Hatsu Hioki at the The Ultimate Fighter: China Finale, according to sources close to the fight. The bout will take place on March 1st in China.

Menjivar (25-11) has had an up-and-down UFC career, going 4-4 overall but currently mired in a two-fight losing streak. His last loss was via unanimous decision to Wilson Reis at UFC 165.

Hioki (26-7-2) started out well in the UFC by winning his first two straight, but has since lost three decisions in a row. The last one came to Darren Elkins at UFC Fight Night 27 in August.

Not much else is known about the TUF China Finale card thus far, other than it seems like coach Cung Le will be fighting on the show.
