A bantamweight bout at UFC Fight Night Shenzhen will pit a fighter born in Tibet against an opponent with roots in Laos. Su Mudaerji has been booked to face Andre Soukhamthath on August 31st according to reports.

Mudaerji (11-4) made his promotional debut last November at UFC Fight Night Beijing. He was submitted by Louis Smolka but will be back in action in his native China next month.

Soukhamthath (13-7) was born and raised in the U.S. but both his parents are from Laos. He has won two and lost three since signing for the UFC in 2017, although two of those defeats came by way of split decision.

As previously announced Weili Zhang faces reigning strawwweight champion Jessica Andrade in Shenzhen on August 31st. She will become the first Chinese fighter to ever challenge for a UFC belt.

Meanwhile Korean middleweight Jun Yong Park, Chinese welterweight Li Jingliang, Chinese flyweight Wu Yanan and Asian MMA veteran Kai Kara France will all be involved.

This will be the promotion’s third event on mainland Chinese after cards in Shanghai and Beijing.
