—————————————————————————–

South Korean fighter, Hyun Gyu Lim added another stunning knockout to his resume at UFC 164, stopping Pascal Krauss in the first round with a crushing knee. He’s now 2-0 in the UFC, also earning a knockout win over Marcelo Guimaraes in his promotional debut. Lim is currently on a seven-fight win streak, dating back to February of 2010.

Kiichi Kunimoto gets a shot in the UFC on the heels of a current four-fight win streak, most recently submitting UFC-veteran Edward Faaloloto in the first round with an armbar at Heat 27. He’s 9-1-2 in his last twelve fights, with six of those nine victories coming by stoppages.

Kyung Ho Kang fell short in his UFC debut, losing a razor-thin split decision to Alex Caceres at UFC on Fuel TV 8, but the bout was later overturned to a no contest following a positive drug test from Caceres. Last time out, Kang was in another closely-contended battle with Chico Camus at UFC 164, but once again was on the losing side of a decision from the judges.

Eight-year mixed martial arts veteran, Shunichi Shimizu makes his big show debut for the first time after 40-plus fights on the Japanese regional circuit. He’s recently won seven of his last eight fights, with six of those wins coming by submission. Most recently, Shimizu submitted Yuki Baba at a Pancrase event last May.
