UFC Debut: Dong Hyun Kim Finishes Jason Tan

Dong-hyun Kim vs Jason Tan – UFC 84 – May 24, 2008 – Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. #MMA #UFC #DongHyunKim

A post shared by OMERTA!⚔️ (@mmaworld_) on

 

This one is a look back to 2008 when the ‘Stun Gun’ Dong Hyun Kim (김동현) became the first fighter out of South Korea to compete in the UFC’s Octagon. His chance came against fellow welterweight fighter, Jason Tan. At the time, Kim was undefeated with a perfect 9 – 0 record. It was a historic moment for Korean mixed martial arts as the ‘Stun Gun’ went on to collect the first of many Octagon wins. He showed off his superior judo and finished the fight with brutal ground and pound elbows in the third round to earn a TKO victory. This fight made me a Korean MMA Fan.

Hyun Gyu Lim’s 5th Round Battlecry and Rally vs Tarec Saffiedine

 

This is one of the many reasons to like the ‘Ace’ Hyun Gyu Lim (임현규). He is simply a badass. Every time he steps inside the cage, he fights like a man possessed. From beginning to end, he will stalk his prey and hunt for a knockout victory. The 5th and final round of his fight with Tarec Saffiedine is proof of Lim’s warrior mentality. Even while down on the scorecards, and even with a badly damaged leg, he stares down his opponent and lets out a battlecry that echoes through the stadium letting everyone know his intention to win. To cap things off even more, Lim goes on a rally with vicious combinations that rattles Saffiedine badly and comes within seconds to finishing his opponent! Korean MMA Fans, what more could you ask of him?? It truly is an honor to watch this man fight. Can’t wait to see what he will bring to UFC Seoul…
