On Friday, Feb. 28, the UFC will host the weigh-ins for The Ultimate Fighter: China Finale which takes place on Saturday, March 1 from the CotaiArena in Macau, China.

In the night’s main event, South Korean welterweight Dong Hyun Kim looks to build on the momentum of a violent, second-round knockout of Erick Silva in his last outing when he faces off with England’s once-beaten John Hathaway. The 26-year-old Hathaway will step into the Octagon for the first time in over a year, but carries with him a three-fight winning streak.

The co-main event will feature the welterweight final of the inaugural installment of The Ultimate Fighter: China. It will pit Zhang Lipeng against Wang Sai. The event was also expected to feature the featherweight final, but an injury forced the bout between Yang Jianping  and Ning Guangyou to be delayed to a later date.

Rounding out the main card will be a heavyweight battle between Shawn Jordan and Matt Mitirione, a bantamweight clash featuring Vaughan Lee and Nam Phan, and a featherweight match-up showcasing Hatsu Hioki against Ivan Menjivar.

The nine-fight event streams live on Saturday via the promotion’s digital network, UFC Fight Pass. The preliminary card kicks off at 6:15 a.m ET, with the five-fight main card beginning at 8 a.m. ET.

The fighters hit the scales at 5 a.m. ET. A live video feed appears above (courtesy of the UFC). Full results appear below.
