John Hathaway vs. Dong Hyun Kim to headline TUF: China Finale in March

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

The UFC will return to Macau, China later this year with a card headlined by John Hathaway vs. Dong Hyun Kim.

The promotion announced the card and main event during a question-and-answer session in Singapore on Friday prior to the UFC Fight Night 34 weigh-ins. The event will also feature the featherweight and welterweight finals of The Ultimate Fighter: China, which is currently airing.

Hathaway and Kim were supposed to fight at UFC 120 in Oct. 2010, but Kim withdrew from the fight due to an injury. Mike Pyle ended up replacing Kim and later handed Hathaway the lone loss of his career.

Hathaway (17-1), a winner in his last three fights, hasn't fought since Sept. 2012. He was scheduled to fight in June 2013, but he pulled out of a scheduled fight against Erick Silva due to injury.

Kim (18-2-1, 1 NC) has also won his last three fights in a row. He most recently scored an impressive comeback knockout against Silva in October.

The card, which will take place at The Venetian Macau's CotaiArena, will air live on UFC Fight Pass. This will mark the UFC's second trip to Macau. The first show featured Cung Le knocking out Rich Franklin in what many considered the 2012 Knockout of the Year.
