MMA Fightline reports that the UFC has signed top Korean fighter Dong Hyun Kim. The source of the report is the Korean-language site, Mfight.

Kim holds an undefeated record of 8-0-1 with notable wins over Hidenobo Koike and Yukiharu Maejima. Kim also defeated DEEP champion Hidehiko Hasegawa in a non-title fight at DEEP 31. His last fight was a rematch against Hasegawa in October, which resulted in a draw.

Kim is set to fight in the welterweight division sometime in March or April.

    The guy is the real deal. I just watched 2 of his fights on youtube.

    I didn’t see how his ground game is…but he’s def a good striker…but we all know UFC is known for their Competition to have the best ground game out of any Org.

    Another good signing, also Rousimar Palhares signed..Check him out on Daily Motion, he looks like another Paulo Fihlo…I read on Tatame that Paulo Fihlo has only 2 fights on his contract with the WEC…he said that there isn’t enough opponents for him to fight…I have the feeling he may becoming to the UFC…..

    i hope he [filho] does.
    he would get crushed.
    to see where i stand on paulo filho you should check my comment on the ‘WEC Vice President Peter Dropick confirms March show in Sacramento a possibility’ article.

    and as for all the complicated names… maybe i’ll just start using initials.
