Jonathan Goulet vs. Dong Hyun Kim planned for UFC 100 on July 11

UFC veteran Jonathan Goulet (22-10) has agreed to face the gritty Dong Hyun Kim (11-1-1) at UFC 100 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on July 11 according to Five Ounces of Pain.

The "Road Warrior" was in talks to face Tamdan McCrory at UFC 97, however he first needed to receive medical clearance before the welterweight tilt was finalized. Goulet was suspended after getting knocked silly by Mike Swick at UFC Fight Night 16: "Fights for the Troops" in his most recent outing on December 10.

Now set to appear more than six months later at the July 11 show, that clearance will no longer be required.

Prior to the Swick loss, the Canadian was riding back-to-back wins, finishing Kuniyoshi Hironaka via technical knockout of at UFC 83: "Serra vs. St. Pierre," which earned "Fight of the Night" honors.

Goulet was then scheduled to face the previously undefeated Paul Kelly at UFC 85 before pulling out because of undisclosed health concerns.

He'll have his hands full with the venerable Kim.

"Stun Gun" stopped Jason Tan in his inaugural appearance for the promotion at UFC 84: "Ill Will" back in May 2008, pounding out his opponent with elbows in the final frame.

Kim was the beneficiary of a Karo Parisyan UFC 88 meltdown in his sophomore effort, having his Octagon encore against The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) alum Matt Brown bumped to the televised portion of the pay-per-view broadcast. The popular South Korean earned a close split decision win against "Immortal."

The promising DEEP veteran finally got a crack at "The Heat" at UFC 94 "St. Pierre vs. Penn 2" back on January 31 where he dropped a razor-thin split decision for his first defeat in thirteen attempts.

Now he looks to get back into the win column by overcoming the wily veteran.

UFC 100 features two major title fights: Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir will tangle to declare an undisputed division champion and Georges St. Pierre will once again defend his 170-pound strap against number one contender, Thiago Alves.

In addition, TUF 9 coaches, Dan Henderson and Michael Bisping, are slated to meet and determine who earns the right to challenge the reigning middleweight champion later in 2009.
