And the jet lag factor…
- Dong Hyun Kim recently spoke about fighting this weekend at UFC on FUEL TV 6. Here are the highlights…
On Getting to Fight in Asia: "This is the first time (in my UFC career) for me to ever fight in Asia, so that really means a lot to me," Kim said through a translator. "I think going into this match, if I do well, I'm hoping that will go right into potentially doing a UFC match in Korea next year."
On Jet Lag: I don't have to really adjust to the time difference like I do when I go to Las Vegas, so I'm sleeping well," Kim said. "For me, personally, I think … [Thiago] is going to have a really uphill battle. I think for him fighting in Asia for the first time, he has to overcome the jet lag and the time differences."
On His 10th UFC Fight: "UFC is where the fittest survive," Kim said. "For me to be able to fight my 10th match in the UFC, that really means a lot. I'm really preparing myself to put on a great show this Saturday."
