UFC 141: Dong Hyun Kim vs Sean Pierson booked for Dec. 30 in Las Vegas

There's a welterweight scrap on tap for the upcoming UFC 141 pay-per-view that pits Korean smasher Dong Hyun Kim against ex-cop Sean Pierson, currently scheduled for Dec. 30 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Straight from UFC President Dana White:

"Two talented welterweights on the comeback trail will face off at UFC 141 when Sean Pierson takes on the ‘Stun Gun,' Dong Hyun Kim."

Kim was last seen resting his eyelids at UFC 132 back in July. The first round pasting at the knee of Carlos Condit was the first official loss of his career, and he'll unquestionably be looking to make a statement against Pierson in his December return.

UFC 129 spelled doom for the Canadian, as he tried to trade blows with Jake Ellenberger and got knocked on his keister in the process.

The loss to "The Juggernaut" snapped a six-fight win streak.

UFC 141 will take place on a Friday, on Dec. 30, 2011, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will be headlined by a mega-fight pitting former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar taking on former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem.

Jon Fitch is also scheduled to return from shoulder surgery against budding welterweight contender Johny Hendricks.
