Kim speaks following his UFC on FUEL TV victory…
- Dong Hyun Kim recently spoke about wanting a rematch with Demian Maia and more. Here are the highlights…
On Fighting in China: "Just the fan reaction, the crowd reaction, as well as not having to deal with the time difference – the travel and all that's involved with that – felt really, really great," Kim said. "I think a fight in Asia vs. fighting in the U.S. was, to me, night and day as far as my physical and mental condition."
On Wanting to Rematch Demian Maia: "So far in the UFC in my career, I have two career losses. I lost to Carlos Condit, I absolutely recognize, but I feel like my loss to Demian Maia, it's embarrassing to me and it's hard for me to really recognize that, myself, as a loss. So I'd really like to have a chance to get a rematch with Demian Maia."
On Where He Wants to Fight Next: "Absolutely, without a doubt, I would love to have a fight [with Maia] in Japan, and I would also definitely want the UFC to put on an event in Korea," Kim said. "I would really love to continue fighting in Asia in the future. I'd like to be a representative for Asian MMA and the UFC in Asia."
