Saturday morning (Jan. 4, 2014), Hyun Gyu Lim will take the center of the Octagon against Tarec Saffiedine at UFC Fight Night 34: "Saffiedine vs. Lim" at the Marina Bay Sands in Marina Bay, Singapore. The bout will be the first time the Korean welterweight headlines an event for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).
Lim made his UFC debut against Marcelo Guimaraes at UFC on Fuel TV: "Silva vs. Stann" with an impressive performance. However, it was his sophomore effort at UFC 164 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin that really turned heads. Lim faced Pascal Krauss and dominated the German fighter on the feet.
The bout wasn't particularly long but it showcased just how talented Lim is on the feet. Krauss, a Roufussport product, was thoroughly outclassed on the feet. Lim was able to land multiple power punches that had Krauss on shaky legs before finishing the fight with a vicious knee to the jaw.
Relive all the action from UFC 164 as you watch Lim destroy Krauss on his way to taking home the "Fight of the Night" bonus check.
