Bouts featuring the debut of an Asian superstar, the returns of a 205-pound phenom, one of judo’s top black belts, and an Ultimate Fighter finalist, as well as a showdown between lightweight up and comers have been officially added to the MMA event of the year – UFC 100, which takes place on July 11th at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In middleweight action, Japan’s reigning middleweight star, world-ranked Yoshihiro Akiyama, makes his long-awaited UFC debut against Alan “The Talent” Belcher, who spoiled international standout Denis Kang’s Octagon debut earlier this year.

Exciting 21-year old up and comer Jon Jones makes his first start since his huge victory over Stephan Bonnar in January when he takes on former Purdue wrestler Jake O’Brien in a light heavyweight match.

Judo black belt Dong Hyun Kim will look to put together another impressive outing this summer when he takes on always exciting Canadian Jonathan Goulet in welterweight action.

The Ultimate Fighter season seven finalist CB Dollaway will look to make it 3-0 in the Octagon since his stint on the show when he takes on season eight’s Tom Lawlor in a middleweight bout, and also added to the UFC 100 card is a lightweight clash between Matt Grice and Shannon Gugerty.
