    After that fight with Erick Silva, I noticed that DHK attracted more fans. I am his fan too but I am in a little doubt that DHK will ever be a champion in WW. His grappling is at top level but even on the ground he seems lack of finishing opponents. WW is the pool of well rounded fighters. I don't think his grappling skill is enough to compete against these top rated contenders.

    How do you guys think? Do you believe that DHK has a fair shot of becoming a champ one day?

    No, but that doesn't mean he won't be able to compete for it.

    No, smart guys with good TDD would outpoint him.

    GSP would effortlessly jabf*ck him to 50-45.

    I like watching him fight, though, because I'm pretty sure he's intentionally trolling everyone who knows what good stand up technique is supposed to look like.

    Did you guys know that there are two Dong Hyun Kims? Both WW, and they train together. Look up his camp.

    I don't think his present form is champ material, but who knows what the future holds. He has skills, though.

    Hufosperm already considers him the welterweight champion of the world.

    loL @ bringing up the condit loss.


    you might as well bring up the demian maia loss.

    It was a single move, it wasn't like condit dominated.

    I would bet DHK heavy in a rematch. He beats Condit 7/10 times with Condit landing some crazy the other 3 times.

    No. Not even on a fluke. DHK is talented to say the least, but there are too many guys at the top of the division he would get stomped by. Condit being one of them.

    Condit made him look like an amateur. I think Demian would beat him again too.

    Beware, you are about to get double donged.

    I think Dong has improved a lot, but their are some guys at 170 that its to hard to see losing. He did just KTFO Erick Silva, so you never know.

    Keep in mind that he has only been "defeated" once. By Condit of all people. Saying Maia ran through him is like saying Khabilov owned Yancy Mediros. I can see a rematch in the future against Maia.
