By Tristen Critchfield Oct 31, 2017

The lineup for UFC Fight Night 122 continues to grow, as the promotion recently confirmed a pair of matchups for the Nov. 25 card in mainland China.

Cyril Asker will square off against James Mulheron at heavyweight, while Alex Garcia will meet Muslim Salikhov at welterweight. UFC Fight Night 122 takes place at Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shangai and is headlined by a middleweight clash between Anderson Silva and Kelvin Gastelum. The card will stream in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass.

Asker is 1-2 thus far in the UFC, including a first-round technical knockout loss to Walt Harris in his most recent outing at UFC Fight Night 111 on June 17. Mulheron fell to 11-2 in his professional career after falling to Justin Willis via unanimous decision in his Octagon debut at UFC Fight Night 113.

Anchored at Tristar Gym, Garcia has accumulated a 4-3 promotional mark and is coming off a decision defeat to Tim Means at UFC Fight Night 112 on June 25. Nicknamed “The King of Kung Fu,” Salikhov will enter his first promotional foray with a 12-1 record — 10 of those triumphs have come via knockout or technical knockout.
