i think everyone beats the dong. sometimes people lie and pretend they don't but they actually do. one of my friends says he doesn't and he only scratches it sometimes, that's it

With a little more controlled aggression and improvements in striking, like inserting jabs in, Kim has real chances in beating the aforementioned, except for Hendricks since Kim won't be able to get him down to the ground and thus will be left to do stand up,,, Hendricks has a tough chin and can punch hard and fast, so Kim's chances are not as good vs him. But of all the others, Kim has a good of a chance against any of them using the right strategies.

Dong is not top 10 IMO, WW is too deep. He's very good, but not great. I would pick all those guys to beat him, with the possible exception of Brown, who probably shouldn't even currently be in the top 10.

I don't think he fares too well as he's too wild with his striking. He looks great against would-be contenders like Erick Silva and John Hathaway, but imagine trying that brawling with Lombard, Condit (yeah), Hendricks, Lawler, Woodley, or maybe even Matt Brown (that would be a highly entertaining fight)...he would get KO'd by many of these men.

Yup.

His striking was pretty horrible against Hathaway. He's dangerously close to becoming "that fighter" who falls in love with his striking after getting some KOs. He's obviously become a big believer in his power, and he clearly does have power, but the way he was swinging wild in that fight was a counter KO just waiting to happen.

You can clip anyone with a hard shot if you throw enough of them, but the top 10's striking is generally way too good to be worried by that shit.

Dong may have been fighting that way because Hathaway has never shown big power himself, but if he does try that style against more skilled fighters then he's going to be in a world of trouble.

I'd like to see him fight any of those guys. As to who he can beat? that's why we watch fights.
