    Lim will lay the smackdown on Guimares. There are some exciting match ups for Lim in the ufc, I hope he does well.

    yeah I only translated his interview but the whole story made it seem like Lim was out of his mind and ready to beat someone up really bad. He actually made the last statement with both his fists completely clenched.

    I seriously feel bad for Guimares, Lim is going to make a statement.

    Of course he wasn't cut. The UFC is trying to build the asian market up and the list of fighters from that side of the world on their roster is few and far between.

    Hyun Gyu Lim didn't make this thread, you are not speaking directly to him, I don't know who you think you are talking to

    Almost lost.


    Really looking forward to seeing Lim debut. I hope it's viciously one sided.

    Really he should save himself possible future embarassment and move up to middleweight. Besides his team mate "Stun Gun" already fights at Welterweight.

    This guy is already 6 foot 2 and has a reach of i believe 82 inches. The guy trains at around 205-210 pounds from what i remember reading. This guy is like the Asian version of Rumble. He should fight at MW, since that weight cutting will catch up to him.

    Exactly what I was thinking. But he decided to fight at WW again so here's hoping for the best. Still I think he would be better suited for a career at MW.

    like Rumble, he wants to fight at WW instead of MW so eventually he wont even be able to make 185lbs and will have to fight at 205lbs...

    it has begun

    no Dong Hyun Kim fights out of TEAM MAD, Lim is from KTT.

    Korean Top Team
    --------------------
    Hyun Gyu Lim
    Korean Zombie
    Dongi Yang

    TEAM MAD
    =========
    Dong Hyun Kim
    Kang Kyung Ho
    Bae Myung Ho


    not to mention he never had problems with the weight cut ever before. he made a mistake of trying to be bigger than usual for his fight against Mitchell. As long as he maintains a lower walk around weight he will be fine. just from the way the whole team including him and his coach were so shocked he actually missed weight gives credence to the fact making the weight cut wasn't even thought of as an issue. in another words he obviously makes the weight without too much struggle usually.

    also people comparing him to Rumble are way off in my opinion. Lim is a big guy right now but when he first started training he weight like 165 or something. so its not like he has that type of a frame like Rumble that carries a lot of natural mass.

    Whatever countryman then. I'm sure Anthony Johnson never had these problems in his entire College Wrestling and MMA career till he made it to the UFC. Like I said he's staying at WW and I wish him the best. However I believe he would be healthier at MW. Eventually when your that big your body will shut down. That's why guys like Benson, Aldo, and Jones joke about moving up a weight class.
