After the recent announcement that a welterweight bout between Dong Hyun Kim and John Hathaway will headline the TUF China Finale, the promotion has confirmed three more bouts for the March 1st event.

At heavyweight, Matt Mitrione (6-3) will battle Shawn Jordan (15-5). Mitrione is coming off a choke-out loss to Brendan Schaub in September, and Jordan is looking to rebound from a KO defeat versus Gabriel Gonzaga in October.

In the featherweight division, Hatsu Hioki (26-7-2) will square off with fellow vet Ivan Menjivar (25-11). Hioki is looking to end a three fight losing skid while Menjivar has incurred consecutive losses to Urijah Faber and Wilson Reis.

And at lightweight, Yui Chul Nam (17-4-1) will take on Kazuki Tokudome (12-4-1). Nam has won four straight bouts and will be making his UFC debut, and Tokudome is coming off a UD loss to Norman Parke in July.

The TUF China Finale will be hosted by the Venetian’s Cotai Arena in Macao.
