UFC on FUEL TV 6 results: Dong Hyun Kim calls for Demian Maia rematch

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

Now that Dong Hyun Kim has dominated Paulo Thiago at UFC on FUEL TV 6: "Franklin vs. Le" today (Nov. 10, 2012) in Macau, China, he's got his sights set on the last man to defeat him.

Earlier today (Sat., Nov. 10, 2012) Dong Hyun Kim turned in a dominating performance against Paulo Thiago at the CotaiArena in Cotai Strip, Macau, on the main card of UFC on FUEL TV 6: "Franklin vs. Le."

"Stun Gun" controlled the Brazilian through three full rounds, completely stifling any offense Thiago had hoped to offer. The end result was a solid if unspectacular unanimous decision victory.

In his post-fight interview with FUEL TV, Kim was asked if he has anyone in mind for his next opponent. After all, UFC Matchmaker Joe Silva is a big fan of fighters helping him with his job by simply speaking their minds and calling out prospective foes.

Kim didn't disappoint. His answer was short but sweet.

"Demian Maia."

It's not surprising in the least. Kim has two losses in his entire career, one coming by way of knockout to Interim Welterweight Champion Carlos Condit and the other a technical knockout loss to Maia at UFC 148 back on July 7 in Las Vegas.

The kicker? Kim was injured during a takedown attempt and was all but forced to give up on the spot. That came just 48 seconds into the bout, too, so it's hard to know if the better man actually won.

Kim wants to find out.

Maia is available at present time, having just submitted Rick Story in the very first round at UFC 153 just last month in Brazil. That makes him 2-0 at 170-pounds, including his win over Kim. He has every reason to want to move forward and leave the Korean behind but what the UFC decides will ultimately rule all.

Should they make a rematch right now? Or wait until it makes sense later?
