Dong Hyun Kim was scheduled to fight this weekend vs. Gunnar Nelson, but a training injury suffered by Nelson scrapped the bout.
Now, he’ll meet Tarec Saffiedine at UFC 207 in December. That card features Ronda Rousey’s return, as she challenges Amanda Nunes for the bantamweight belt.
Kim (21-3-1) has won 12 of 15 UFC fights, while Saffiedine (16-5) is an even 2-2 with the promotion. He is also a former Strikeforce champion.
