Dong-yi-yang_medium

The UFC 185-pound division has just been put on notice now that Zuffa has gone out and acquired undefeated middleweight Dong-Yi Yang.

The South Korean holds a perfect 9-0 record with eight technical knockout wins and one submission finish. In addition to Japan's Sengoku and DEEP promotions, Yang cut his teeth under the WXF banner in his native South Korea.

"The Hammer" was last seen kicking the crap out of Bill "Kill" Saures at Trench Warz 12: "Battle Brawls" on May 21 in the Northern Mariana Islands.

Yang trains with Korean Top Team (KTT), the same camp responsible for WEC "Zombie" Chan Sung Jung. A date and opponent for his debut have not yet been determined.
