Ivan Menjivar Faces Hatsu Hioki At TUF: China Finale

January 2, 2014 8:47 am by Derek Langhorn

As reported originally by TopMMANews.com, Ivan Menjivar, (MMA 25-11, UFC 4-4) will face Hatsu Hioki (MMA 26-7-2, UFC 2-3) at The Ultimate Fighter: China finale card.

Menjivar, who fought Georges St. Pierre in St. Pierre’s first fight, will compete at featherweight for the first time in his UFC career. Menjivar recently lost to Wilson Reis and Urijah Faber, and he looks to snap his two-fight losing streak.

Hioki, one of the most highly touted featherweights in the world before the UFC implemented their 145 pound division, has for the most part struggled inside the octagon. Hioki looks to come on top after a three fight losing streak to Clay Guida, Darren Elkins, and Ricardo Lamas. (The Guida decision, in my opinion? Questionable.)
