On Friday, Jan. 3, the UFC hosted the weigh-ins for UFC Fight Night 34: Saffiedine vs. Lim which takes place on Saturday, Jan. 4 at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore.

The event marks not only the first UFC fight card of the year, but also the first event on the promotion’s new digital network, UFC Fight Pass.

In the night’s main event, the final Strikeforce welterweight champion, Tarec Saffiedine, makes his long-awaited Octagon debut against South Korea’s Hyun Gyu Lim in a welterweight contest. Saffiedine has been out of action for an entire year, following his five-round destruction of veteran Nate Marquardt last January. Lim, meanwhile, will look for his third straight knockout inside the promotion.

Also on the card, Japanese superstar Tatsuya Kawajiri will make his highly anticipated debut. He takes on undefeated American Sean Soriano in a featherweight contest.

The 10-fight event kicks off on Saturday, Jan. 4, at 6 a.m. ET with six preliminary card bouts, followed by the four-fight main card at 9 a.m ET. The entire card streams live on UFC Fight Pass.
