Dong Hyun Kim (김동현) vs Jason Tan at UFC 84

This was a special moment. As a Korean-American, it is rare to watch a Korean athlete on TV. Let alone, in the sport of mixed martial arts. But on May 24, 2008, standing in the Octagon, a 26-year old South Korean with an undefeated 9 – 0 record made his UFC debut. His name, Dong Hyun Kim aka the Stun Gun. To many, it may have been just another prelim fight, but for Korean MMA, it was a gateway of hope and new beginnings.

This fight made me a Korean MMA Fan.
