He's too reckless with his striking.

Has such size advantage. Still so much sloppy his technique. Questionable cardio. Many heart non-stop he possess though.

Poll options are kinda weird. You can be legit but never be a top contender or even a top 10 fighter. TS should be banned for terrible poll-creating skills.

Hahahahaha, it was a great fight though.

Lim showed serious stones fighting to the end with his leg all Fucked up from Saffiedine's kicks.

I think he'll likely be one of those guys who hovers between #7 and #14 (give or take) and whether or not he challenges for a title will completely depend upon the state of the division at the time (injuries, availability of other fighters, etc).

This is what I'm thinking too.

So far 2-1 in the UFC, nearly finished Saffedine with one leg.

3 things we know about him

1. He's Anthony Johnson's replacement @ WW

2. Leg kicks seem to be his biggest weakness, but that can be easily fixed.

3. Insane amount of will and heart as evident from his last fight.

Where do you guys see Lim going from here? He's still young, and seems to be @ a good camp. More importantly, who will he fight next?
Your self-esteem and sense of your own manhood shouldn't depend on how well Korean fighters do in the UFC.

He should really work on his striking in general, he relies solely on his power and that will only take you so far.
