Next Saturday, your UFC Fight Pass free trial ends and the $9.95 monthly subscription kicks in. The first "paid" Fight Pass event you'll get is the TUF China Finale in Macau. Welterweights Dong Hyun Kim and John Hathaway will clash in a five-round affair, and a new TUF winner will be crowned in the welterweight division. Sai Wang and Lipeng Zhang compete in that match-up, but some late breaking news (via MMA Junkie) has come in that the featherweight final between Jianping Yang and Guangyou Ning has been postponed due to injury. Nam Phan vs. Vaughan Lee has consequently moved up to the main card slot.
As far as non-TUF fights, Matt Mitrione is trying to avoid a 1-3 mark in his last 4 as he faces Shawn Jordan, who himself is coming off a vicious KO loss. Hatsu Hioki has been a disappointment in the UFC, but he can get back to his winning ways if he can get past Ivan Menjivar, who is returning to the 145 lbs division after hanging around at bantamweight.
Here's a look at the full fight card, which starts on Fight Pass at 6:15 AM ET/3:15 AM PT, with the main card kicking off at 8:00 AM ET/5:00 AM PT. In the olden days we had the Bloody Elbow Night Crew for late night Japan shows, so consider this the Bloody Elbow Just Before Sunrise Crew covering next week's show:
Dong Hyun Kim vs. John Hathaway
Sai Wang vs. Lipeng Zhang
Nam Phan vs. Vaughan Lee
Matt Mitrione vs. Shawn Jordan
