Dong Hyun Kim will lock horns with Colby Covington at UFC Fight Night 111 on June 17.

The promotion recently announced the welterweight pairing. UFC Fight Night 111 takes place at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore, and will also see Rafael dos Anjos make his 170-pound debut against Tarec Saffiedine.

The 35-year-old Kim has won seven of his last eight bouts in the Octagon, with his only defeat during that time coming to current welterweight champion Tyron Woodley. Most recently, the South Korean known as “Stun Gun” garnered a split decision triumph over Saffiedine at UFC 207 on Dec. 31.

Covington, meanwhile, recently posted a video of himself begging for a fight on his Instagram account. The American Top Team product enters the matchup on a three-fight winning streak and last appeared at UFC on Fox 22, where he earned a unanimous verdict over Bryan Barberena on Dec. 17. Covington is 6-1 in the Las Vegas-based organization and 11-1 as a professional overall.
