    its a dream come true for me :o

    PUNDANG, South Korea – Undefeated welterweight Dong Hyun Kim held a press conference at the offices of the Super Action cable network on Tuesday to officially announce his newly signed contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

    Kim, who stands at over six feet, is a lankly welterweight who walks around at better than 185 pounds. As originally reported on the Korean website MFight on Friday, the UFC contract will be for four fights at 170 pounds.

    Few other details of the contract were discussed during the conference, save for the speculation that since Kim had received a “better” offer than some Japanese fighters from the now defunct Pride Fighting Championships, his management team was hopeful that his first UFC fight would escape the anonymity of a non-televised undercard. His UFC debut is set for April or May.

    Dong Hyun Kim is actually pretty good, he's going to get murdered in the UFC 170lb division though.
