Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just a couple of days away from its first mixed martial arts (MMA) event of the New Year when it stages UFC Fight Night 34: "Saffiedine vs. Lim," which will emanate LIVE from Marina Bay Sands in Singapore this Saturday morning (Jan. 4, 2014) on the promotion's new "Fight Pass" digital network.
Top welterweight contenders, Tarec Saffiedine and Hyun Gyu Lim, will be tasked with leading the promotion's southeast Asian invasion, battling to inch closer to the top of perhaps the most competitive division in the sport. "The Sponge" -- the final Strikeforce 170-pound champion -- is still eager to make his Octagon debut after several health-related setbacks.
"The Ace," meanwhile, looks to build off consecutive knockout victories over Marcelo Guimaraes and Pascal Krauss.
