The UFC’s first edition of TUF: China will come to a close on March 1 at The Venetian Macao’s CotaiArena. The lineup was finalized earlier this week as the promotion announced a trio of fights for the TUF: China Finale.
The most notable of the three fights will see TUF 17 veteran Zak Cummings take on Alberto Mina on the UFC Fight Pass fight card. Cummings will look to build on his successful UFC debut that saw him submit Ben Alloway at UFC Fight Night 27. Cummings was supposed to fight at The Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale but had to withdraw, along with opponent Sergio Moraes, due to injury.
The other two bouts will see TUF: China semifinalists Albert Cheng and Anying Wang face off in a welterweight bout and prospects Mark Eddiva face off with Jumabieke Tuerxun in a featherweight bout.
The Ultimate Fighter: China Finale will be headlined by a welterweight bout between John Hathaway and Dong Hyun Kim in China’s special administrative region of Macao.
