    I think he wanted to taunt him but half way he realized that is disrespectful so he decided to stop and check on thiago instead.

    Because he is a POS, but now we can enjoy Stun Gun putting through the meat grinder that much more.

    Siyar is gonna spend half the fight on his back, and the other half on his stomach.

    Thanks Hufu! Glad to hear direct insights from the Dong about his opponent and that he is taking a a different approach with this fight by planning on trading with Siyar, standing up. Now that's what I wanted to see and hear!

    BTW, when is Bae Myung Ho coming into the UFC? I know he was offered to come in but he had contractual agreements with Legends?

    I am not quite sold on Dong.... His biggest win is paulo thiago and pretty much every named WW fighter he fought, he came up short of a win. I would say that Siyar is a good person for him to fight/wrestle.

    I don't know why fighters think they are entitled to more than they earned. They just beat the same guy, one is coming off a lose and the other a winning streak. It makes perfect sense to put these two together.

    Remember when Jardine made a fuss about having to fight large head? Clearly he wasnt ready for a title shot... He never recovered from that lose. Fight who they put in front of you and prove that you are champion material. Don't get me wrong I enjoy Kim's fights and realize he didn't say as much about it but every fighter can end any fight they are in.

    Kinda like Bisping, if he would of beat Sonnen then he would have his shot but he didn't and currently has a one fight win streak.

    Siyar vs dhk is a fucking terrible fight. Dhk vs Hathaway and siyar vs Alves make way more sense.

    yeah he was slated to fight at Macau, but Legend FC said No. hes probably their most popular fighter so I'm not surprised.

    he will be in the UFC soon enough though.

    People saying that Stun Gun will take Siyar down at will en route to a decision are counting Siyar out the way they did Condit. I know Condit's a completely different fighter but that means you shouldn't count out Siyar. Siyar's a beast w/ KO power. DHK has had his chances to make it to the top & it doesn't help that he grinds decisions to get there, it's time to make room in the WW division starting w/ Siyar.

    a rematch vs condit would have been cool, but somewhat impractical right now. macdonald is someone who's at a similar place right now in terms of ranking, but unfortunately the ufc and condit were falling all over themselves trying to make that rematch (like they couldn't do it some time down the line when rory and condit were a little closer in ranking).
