    Dong Hyun Kim just revealed the UFC was likely going to cut him if he lost to Erick Silva. Not only because he was a grappler style fighter , but Kim actually told the UFC to move his fight against Erick Silva a month later because he wanted to concentrate on ADCC.

    Predictably, the UFC got really pissed and basically said either Dong Hyun Kim takes the fight at the original date or he would face severe consequences. DHK just said that factored in on the way he fought because he knew the UFC was itching to cut him after that whole incident.

    Dong Hyun Kim is a honey badger.

    It's funny that all South Korean fighters are basically Chael Sonnen level trash-talkers but they can't speak english so nobody outside of Korea will ever realize it.

    DHK is in China right now getting ready for ADCC. He's competing in the 88kg division.

    I wouldn't say all of them. The Korean Zombie is probably the most humble & soft spoken fighter in the sport. A lot of Korean fighters do talk way more trash than the typical Asian fighter.

    stun gun is hilarious bc he doesnt take the party line, he just says whatever he wants - hes said similar stuff in the past, not bashing the ufc, but just saying how it is - i think he expects to be somewhere else somewhere in the relative near future, even before this situation

    Dude's such a troll. "I got more famous by being on a talk show for 2 minutes than fighting in the UFC."

    That's why he fought the way he did? He was fighting his normal boring ass fight he always does until he gassed out and couldn't take Silva down anymore. He was forced to stand and landed a nice shot but let's not act like that was the gameplan dong.

    The Dong is just asking to get released. Seems like he can't contain his excitement and emotions anymore and will explode at any moment. Hopefully the UFC can handle the Dong and not release him any time soon.

    That was the gameplan. Kim has always been a counter striker who likes to throw punches going backwards, he fought completely out of character against Silva .His coach broke down Erick Silva perfectly and planned the pressure strategy.

    Below this is Kim talking about the strategy.

    Lol at thinking that is how DHK normally fights. He was fighting like a spaz from the get-go.

    Well, even if he had lost that fight, I don't think he would've been cut. It was a great fight

    So does that mean he'll be quit after he loses?

    He's just assuming IMO

    DHK definitely bought himself some time with that fight and how he finished it. Also, if Dana and Co. are still interested in the Korean market. Korean Zombie is definitely their golden boy in that area, though. DHK is expendable if they can find an excuse to cut him.
