    So I'm reading from Korean websites that Akiyama is most likely to headline... thanks to his popularity with TV shows in South Korea. Dong Hyun Kim is also confirmed.

    I was super stoked to see Dong Yi Yang was re-signed.

    Korean fighters active in UFC:

    Akiyama
    DHK
    Dong Yi Yang
    Hyun Gyu Lim
    Tae Hyun Bang
    Eui Chul Nam
    Doo Ho Choi
    Bendo

    (Did I miss anyone?)

    What would be a good match ups for Akiyama or DHK?

    Assuming that UFC might try to put one or two more Korean fighters to sign, who would be a good one?

    Soo Chul Kim is perfectly but don't think he will leave ONE FC and Road FC. His trainer owns Road FC and he hates UFC a lot.

    If contracts etc weren't an issue, ideally;

    Soo Chul Kim, but as you said, I can't see that happening and he is scheduled to face Marlon Sandro.

    Jae Young Kim

    Dong Sik Yoon, even just for old time nostalgia sake, plus he recently beat Takase.

    Kwan Ho Kwak

    Could do DHK v Gunnar but I think Gunnar wants on that Dublin card.

    Yeah, Gunnar wants to be on the Dublin card and I think he said that he also wants to be on UFC 194

    Ah that's a shame because I have feeling DHK v Gunnar would be pretty exciting.

    Really hard to pick a fight for Sexy. He's a big name but far down in the rankings. Cote would be a good matchup if he gets passed Burkman and can have a quick turnaround for November. Maybe Brandon Thatch as many Korean fans would have seen his fight against Bendo, but that's a pretty dangerous match up for him.

    I think Cro Cop might headline this event.

    Random thoughts.

    Imagine how awesome this card would be if Korean Zombie could fight. He has so many intriguing fights when he comes back.

    Would've been nice to see Kang on the card as well.

    Sexyama only wants big name fights. I doubt he takes on a lesser name just to win. I can see him asking for someone like Thiago Alves.

    Can't wait to see Doo Ho fight again.

    More spinning shit from K1 DHK incoming. I know he's been practicing his spinning hook kick lol.

    I hope Bendo fights someone good as well.

    Cro Cop should fight in Japan. He's huge there....Literally.

    So excited for this card.

    His nickname is "capoeira". How dangerous can he be? He's going to eat a knee and take a nap.

    He is very dangerous, former Welterweight champion of Jungle Fight, a promotion that has produced many great fighters that have gone to fight in the UFC including Erick Silva.

    I doubt he'll ever be champ but he is a threat to any middle of the pack level fighter for sure.

    Lim should take it but it's no cake walk.

    Yeah, KZ and Kang would have been awesome. Especially since those two along with Doo Ho Choi have the most potential to climb the ranks.

    I didn't know Dongyi Yang was resigned. Is he coming back at MW or LHW?

    Also, it kind of sucks that a couple of the Korean fighters lost their most recent fight.

    I hope DHK vs LaFlare or Tarec, I dislike seeing foreign fighters lose when in their country, Gus etc. But I enjoyed seeing Shields out grapple Maia and Tumenov beat up Musoke.

    Masvidal confirmed on twitter that he signed a fight and it will be "Big news"... I can imagine it's DHK as co-main in Seoul (or maybe vs. Gunnar in Dublin)
