Japan’s top featherweight and one of the top featherweights in the world now has a date in the cage. Hatsu Hioki will face George Roop at UFC 137 on October 29th in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
Hioki has mentioned in many interviews that he is looking for a few bouts in the cage before challenging for the title. We could not agree more with him as there is sure to be a “break-in” of sorts for the fighter.
