Ivan Menjivar will be packing on a few pounds and moving back up to featherweight to challenge Hatsu Hioki at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) China live finale on March 1, 2014, from the Cotai Arena in Macao, China.

Interesting fight. I hope it's not the main event since it really won't mean much for the division but I feel like this is a loser leaves town fight and I'm not liking Menjivar's chances since he has a big size disadvantage against a heavy grappler

I like Hioki's chances in this fight also.

Fun fight but neither has been impressive as of late. I also agree that this is most certainly a loser leaves fight and that Hioki should be able to get his hand raised.

This should be an easy win for Hioki in my opinion.

I think its a good fight for MMA purists who love the technical aspect which who are we kidding will be the backbone of fight pass sales.

Should be a sick grappling war. I don't think its loser leave town because if Hioki wins the UFC has Asian appeal overseas and Menjivar can always give us a good fight against a hungry up and coming Brazilian or American on a Brazil card.

I got Hioki winning a tough close decision. Would be happy to see him pick up another win after getting shafted against Guida.
