Woodley in for Lombard against Kim

Welterweight contender Tyron Woodley will get right back into the Octagon on August 23, as he follows up his June bout with Rory MacDonald with a matchup against Dong Hyun Kim at CotaiArena in Macao, China.

The co-main event bout comes together after Woodley's American Top Team squad mate Hector Lombard was forced from the match due to injury.

UFC President Dana White announced the news during a media tour in Asia promoting the card, which is headlined by the middleweight bout between Michael Bisping and Cung Le.

Woodley, winner of two straight over Josh Koscheck and Carlos Condit before his decision loss to MacDonald at UFC 174, will face a fighter on a hot streak in South Korea's "Stun Gun," who has won four in a row, the last two over Erick Silva and John Hathaway by knockout.
