A huge welterweight bout has been added to UFC’s inaugrural event in South Korea as Jorge Masvidal will take on Korea’s own Dong Hyun Kim.
Arguably the most successful Korean mixed martial artist of all time, Dong Hyun “The Stun Gun” Kim (20-3-1 MMA) has won five of his last six contests inside the octagon including a third-round submission of Josh Burkman in his most recent outing at UFC 187.
Masvidal (29-9 MMA) recently made a move up a weightclass from lightweight to welterweight and was instantly successful, knockout out Cezar Ferreira at the TUF 21 Finale.
With this fight addition UFC Fight Night 79 now looks like this.
Benson Henderson vs. Thiago Alves
Mirko Filipović vs. Anthony Hamilton
Dong Hyun Kim vs. Jorge Masvidal
Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. Alberto Mina
Lim Hyun-Gyu vs. Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos
