During a UFC Q&A in Singapore, Jon Anik announced the date and headliners for the TUF: China Finale. The live event to crown the first ever Ultimate Fighter: China champions will happen on March 1st at the Cotai Arena in Macau, which is the same venue that hosted the UFC's first voyage to the Chinese territory on late 2012.
The #12 ranked welterweight contender in Kim is coming off a brutal knockout win over Erick Silva last October. Hathaway on the other hand, has won 7 of his 8 UFC bouts, but hasn't fought since September of 2012 in a decision win against John Maguire. He has been on the sidelines dealing with injuries, but will look to continue his impressive streak as he faces the talented Korean.
The event will also feature the featherweight and welterweight finals of the TUF: China. Stay tuned to Bloody Elbow for more updates on the card as it becomes available.
