UFC 110: Chris Lytle vs Dong Hyun Kim on tap for Feb. 21

Electrifying welterweight strikers Chris Lytle (27-17-5) and Dong Hyun Kim (12-0-1) have agreed to throw leather on the upcoming UFC 110 fight card, tentatively scheduled for the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia, on Feb. 21 according to MMA Fanhouse.

"Lights Out" was last seen taking a unanimous decision win over Kevin Burns at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Season 9 Finale last June, in what was an exciting showdown that saw Lytle earn his third "Fight of the Night" bonus in as many attempts.

He was quickly penciled in to do battle with former WEC kingpin Carlos Condit at UFC Fight Night 19 back in September; however, Lytle's knee imploded during training and forced him to withdraw from the Spike TV event.

The Ultimate Fighter 4 runner-up will be looking to notch his fourth straight win this February against the very dangerous Kim -- who like Lytle has been in his fair share of entertaining bouts throughout his UFC tenure.

"Stun Gun" scored a unanimous decision over Brazilian jiu-jitsu stylist TJ Grant at UFC 100: "Lesnar vs. Mir 2" back in July. The convincing victory over the Canadian was important because Kim had previously been involved in two close matches that could have gone either way.

He dropped a split decision to Karo Parisyan at UFC 94 earlier this year, which was later overturned to a no contest after "The Heat" tested positive for pain killers. And before that, Kim -- who often trains at Wajyutsu Keisyukai in Japan -- went the distance against Matt Brown in another close split decision, but this time in a winning effort.

UFC 110 was originally expected to feature International superstars Wanderlei "The Axe Murderer" Silva and Yoshihiro "Sexyama" Akiyama in a hard-hitting 185-pound brawl that pits sexy vs. psycho; however, Dana White is also considering an alternate main event of Georges St. Pierre vs. Dan Hardy.

Perennial middleweight contender Nate Marquardt is also being considered as a possible opponent for the suddenly relevant Chael Sonnen.
