Gunnar Nelson

UFC Fight Night 99 has received a pretty compelling, welterweight clash for its headliner, as the promotion’s announced Gunnar Nelson will take on Dong Hyun Kim.

The upcoming card will go down on November 19th at the SSE Arena in Belfast.

Kim (21-3-1) has scored back-to-back wins over Dominic Waters and Josh Burkman, after he was taken out by Tyron Woodley in 2014.

Nelson (15-2-1), meanwhile, submitted Albert Tumenov in his last outing, which followed a clear cut, decision loss to Demian Maia.

Iceland’s Nelson is currently sitting in the #12 ranking at 170, and South Korea’s Kim is #10.

It will be interesting to see how that fight plays out. Both men are ridiculously good grapplers who also can hurt you on the feet.
