Matt Brown vs. Dong Hyun Kim UFC 88 fight in the works

matt brownFormer The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 7 contestant, Matt Brown (7-6), will take on undefeated Korean import, Dong Hyun "Stun Gun" Kim (10-0-1), at UFC 88: "Breakthrough" in Atlanta, Ga., on September 6, according to

Brown -- who was eliminated from the show by eventual tournament winner Amir Sadollah via triangle choke in the semifinals -- bounced back to defeat Matt Arroyo via technical knockout at the TUF 7 Finale last month. It was just his second win in his last five fights and the first inside the Octagon.

That makes him essentially perfect within the eight-sided cage (1-0) just like his opponent when it comes time to throw down in the "Peach State."

Kim stopped Jason Tan in his inaugural Octagon appearance at UFC 84: "Ill Will" back in May, pounding out his opponent with elbows in the final frame. The promising DEEP veteran will look to keep his perfect record intact and climb the welterweight ladder one rung at a time.
