Welterweights TJ Grant and Dong Hyun Kim, whose opponents for their scheduled bouts recently withdrew due to injuries, have now been booked to square off on the UFC 100 preliminary card on July 11 in Las Vegas, according to MMA Weekly.
Grant had been set to compete this Saturday on The Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale undercard against Rory Markham, who was forced out of the contest due to a quadriceps injury. A winner of five-straight, Grant defeated Ryo Chonan via split decision in his UFC debut in April.
Kim was slated to face Jonathan Goulet at the historic event before Goulet withdrew from the card over the weekend due to a dislocated shoulder. Undefeated in 13 professional bouts, Kim won back-to-back fights over Jason Tan and Matt Brown to start his UFC career before suffering a split decision loss to Karo Parisyan which was later changed to a no contest after Parisyan tested positive for banned painkillers.
UFC 100 features a pair of championships headliners as heavyweight title-holders Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir unify their belts and Georges St-Pierre puts his welterweight title on the line against Thiago Alves.
