Coulter vs. Yaozhong, Dobson vs. Yanan set for UFC Beijing in November

A pair of fights has been added to the UFC’s return to mainland China this fall.

Rashad Coulter (8-4 MMA, 0-3 UFC) is set to take on China’s own Hu Yaozong (3-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) in a heavyweight bout at UFC Fight Night 141. And Shana Dobson (3-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) will fight China’s Wu Yanan (9-2 MMA, 0-1 UFC) at women’s flyweight. Promotion officials announced the new bookings today.

UFC Fight Night 141 takes place Nov. 24 at Cadillac Arena in Beijing. Broadcast plans for the event have not been announced, but past cards in China have streamed on UFC Fight Pass.

Coulter is in desperate need of a win. He came to the UFC in 2017 with an 8-1 record, but has been stopped by knockout in all three of his fights with the promotion. Chase Sherman shut him down at UFC 211, Tai Tuivasa finished him at UFC Fight Night 121 with a flying knee, and Chris De La Rocha pounded him out at UFC 225 in June.

Yaozong started his pro career 3-0, then made his UFC debut this past November at UFC Fight Night 122 in Shanghai. But Cyril Asker caught him in a rear-naked choke and he was finished mideway through the second round for the first loss of his career.

Dobson will be looking to get back on track, as well. After a knockout win over Ariel Beck at the TUF 26 Finale after her appearance on Season 26 of “The Ultimate Fighter,” she dropped a decision to Lauren Mueller at UFC on FOX 29 in April.

Yanan, like Yaozong, made her promotional debut this past November at UFC Fight Night 122 in Shanghai. But there, she had her modest two-fight knockout streak ended when she dropped a decision to Gina Mazany.

With the additions, the latest UFC Fight Night 141 card now includes:

  • Curtis Blaydes vs. Francis Ngannou
  • Rashad Coulter vs. Hu Yaozhong
  • Shana Dobson vs. Wu Yanan
