Two welterweight bouts featuring several prospects for the UFC’s 170 pound division have been added to the undercard of UFC 84 scheduled for May 24 in Las Vegas, UFC.com’s Thomas Gerbasi is reporting.
The bouts added include season six “Ultimate Fighter” reality TV show alumnus Jon Koppenhaver taking on Yoshiyuki Yoshida and Jason Tan squaring off against Korean fighter Dong Hyun Kim.
Koppenhaver last fought for the UFC during the live season finale of TUF 6 on December 8. He recorded a third round TKO over Jared Rollins in a fight that was discussed as a possible fight of the year candidate by several pundits.
Yoshida, who has never fought in the UFC before, has a lifetime pro MMA record of 9-2, according to Sherdog.com’s Fight Finder. He has competed for both the SHOOTO and Cage Force promotions.
