Also official are previously rumored match ups between Tatsuya Kawajiri and Hacran Dias, and lightweights Katsunori Kikuno and Quinn Mulhern.

Additionally, the UFC has announced that Kiichi Kunimoto will face Hyun Gyu Lim at welterweight, and Kyung Ho Kang will take on Shunichi Shimizu at bantamweight.
