Welterweights Dong Hyun Kim and Chris Lytle will square off at UFC 110 on February 21 in Sydney, Australia, according to MMA Fanhouse.
Kim (12-0-1) began his UFC career in 2008 with back-to-back wins over Jason Tan and Matt Brown, before suffering a split decision loss to Karo Parisyan in January that was later changed to a no contest after Parisyan tested positive for banned painkillers following the fight. “Stun Gun” rebounded with a unanimous decision over TJ Grant in July, and was then set to fight Dan Hardy earlier this month at UFC 105, but withdrew due to an undisclosed injury.
Lytle (27-17-5) has gone 3-3 since returning to the UFC in late-2007, dropping bouts to Thiago Alves, Josh Koscheck, and Marcus Davis, while earning victories over Kyle Bradley, Paul Taylor, and Kevin Burns most-recent in June. “Lights Out” has won a “fight night” bonus in all but one of his last six bouts, including three-straight “Fight of the Night” awards.
UFC 110 has not yet been officially announced, though Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira hopes to fight fellow heavyweight contender Cain Velasquez on the card and Wandelei Silva’s middleweight debut against Yoshihiro Akiyama may also take place at the event.
