Korean Top Team is full of jokesters…
- Hyun Gyu Lim recently spoke about getting to main event UFC Fight Night 34. Here are the highlights…
On Thinking The UFC Fight Night 34 Opportunity Was a Joke: "Korean Top Team is full of jokesters, and we always play around with each other. So at first, when they told me that unfortunately Jake Ellenberger got hurt and I was going to be elevated to the main event, I didn't believe it. I thought they were joking. I didn't believe it until after my coach told me it was true."
On Fighting Tarec Saffiedine: "I watched a couple of his fights, especially when he beat Nate Marquardt to become the Strikeforce champion," Lim said. "I wouldn't say he was on my radar, but that was a good fight. We have different styles, for sure," Lim said. "We're both strikers, but I feel like I'm a better finisher. I have more power and more aggression. I'm more attack-oriented."
On The Opportunity: "As far as I'm concerned, my existence is only up until Saturday night," Lim said. "After Saturday night, we'll worry about it then. "It's a good opportunity. I don't want to let the chance go."
