A welterweight bout has been added to the year end UFC 141 card between Dong Hyun Kim and Canadian fighter Sean Pierson.

UFC officials announced the match-up on Monday.

After starting his career with a long running undefeated record, Korea’s Dong Hyun Kim tasted defeat for the first time back in July after a stunning knockout loss to Carlos Condit.

Kim will look to bounce back in December when he faces another heavy handed striker at UFC 141.

Sean Pierson will be returning to action later this year with redemption on his mind as well.

After a successful UFC debut, Pierson found himself on the wrong end of a knockout via UFC welterweight contender Jake Ellenberger at UFC 129 in April.

Pierson will do his best to erase the memory of that fight with a win over Kim in December.

UFC 141 takes place on Dec 30 in Las Vegas with the main event pitting former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem against former UFC champion Brock Lesnar.
