Pair Of UFC 151 Fights Find New Home In China

UFC officials have added two of the canceled UFC 151 fights to the first-ever card in China, as Jeff Hougland vs. Takeya Mizugaki and John Lineker vs. Yasuhiro Urushitani have been placed on the UFC on Fuel TV 6 card.

UFC on Fuel TV 6 is set for November from Macau, China. Rich Franklin and Cung Le are slated to do battle in the main event.

Hougland (10-5) is looking to recover from his first loss since 2003. He was submitted by Yves Jabouin earlier this year. Mizugaki (15-7-2) has gone 1-2 in his last three UFC fights, defeating Cole Escovedo while losing to Chris Cariaso and Brian Bowles.

Lineker (19-6) lost his UFC debut to Louis Gaudinot via submission this past May, snapping his 13-fight win streak. Urushitani (19-5-6) was part of the four-person UFC flyweight tournament, falling to Joseph Benavidez via TKO in March.
