Get ready for some "Big Trouble from Little China." Tiequan Zhang will become the first Chinese born fighter to compete in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) when he takes on Jason Reinhardt at UFC 127 in Sydney, Australia on Feb. 27. Zhang had previously competed under the Zuffa umbrella for the WEC, defeating Pablo Garza with a guillotine choke in his debut before dropping a decision to Danny Downes, the first loss of his budding career. "The Mongolian Wolf" typically competes at lightweight but will drop to 145-pounds for his debut in the Octagon. Reinhardt hasn't fought since January of 2008, a submission win over Cody Larson at Iowa Challenge 46. The Illinois native boasts an impressive career record of 20-1; however, that one loss came in his lone appearance in the Octagon at UFC 78, a submission defeat at the hands of Joe Lauzon. While fans may not exactly be on a first name basis with these competitors, of the 34 fights among them, only one of which has gone to the judges.

Zhang does need to be down at 145, prolly way to small for UFC 155.

Interesting UFC would bring back Jason after getting beatdown by Lauzon and then hasnt fought since 08. Jason going down to 145 too right?

Not looking good for Reinhardt on this one. Wouldn't be surprised to see Tie Quan stop him early.
