According to reports, a welterweight battle between former The Ultimate Fighter 5 winner Nate Diaz and undefeated Dong Hyun Kim has been added to the ever-expanding UFC 125 roster, slated for February of 2011.
The New Year’s Day bout was first reported by MMAJunkie.com
Kim stakes claim to a complicated 13-0-1 (1 NC) MMA record. The Judo black belt was last seen taking a unanimous decision over Amir Sadollah at UFC 114 this past May.
Diaz took the TUF 5 lightweight crown back in June 2007, however moved up to the more suitable welterweight division two fights ago. He has posted a pair of impressive finishes since making the change, proving the 155-pound weight cut was far too draining on his lanky frame.
Although the UFC has yet to officially announced the star-studded event, the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas Nevada is expected to host the extravaganza.
