"(Dong Hyun Kim) just recently came off a loss, like myself. And he’s still a Top 10 (fighter) and he’s game, too. I wouldn’t have to be worried too much about takedowns and I’ve been working on my boxing skills tremendously and (I’ll) be able to showcase a knockout. I want to fight by, at least, November. Most of my opponents that (I’ve had) punch a couple times and they don’t want to fight anymore. They just want to wrestle or run away. The other opponent that I had that was game was Brian Foster and we ended up getting fight of the night."

Rick Story vs. Dong Hyun Kim? Sounds like someone is trying to erase the "Horror" of his last fight at UFC on Versus 4 on June 26 in Pittsburgh. That would be Story, who didn't get the ending he was looking for thanks to late replacement Charlie Brenneman, who filled in for a hormonally-challenged Nate Marquardt in "The City of Bridges" to steal the win. The Tacoma native tells MMA Weekly he's already set his sight on Kim, who also snapped a considerable win streak when Carlos Condit planted him like a Hibiscus syriacus at UFC 132 on July 2 in Las Vegas. Which one of these talented welterweights gets back into the title hunt? And more importantly, is this a 170-pound match-up you want to see?
