UFC Fight Night 37, a.k.a. the TUF: China Finale is this weekend on UFC Fight Pass (yes, the online subscription service), and the event that will likely only be watched by a handful of you is headlined by a bout that pits Dong Hyun Kim against John Hathaway. While the “Stun Gun” is probably the best MMA fighter to ever come out of South Korea, Hathaway isn’t quite the best to come out of his homeland of Great Britain – although at one time he was considered to be the heir apparent to Michael Bisping’s “badass Brit” mojo.
“Huh?” you say, with a mouthful of Cheetos in your hand and zero recognition in your brain?
Yeah, it’s true, before losing to Mike Pyle back in 2010 at UFC 120, Hathaway was an undefeated dude who’d just taken out Diego Sanchez. But he fought only once in 2011, twice in 2012 and zero times in 2013, so his stock – and name recognition to the average fan – has really taken a nosedive.
Anyway, as a refresher, here’s Hathaway’s first fight in the UFC, which took place at UFC 93 in 2009.
