Dong Hyun Kim took on Paulo Thiago at the UFC on Fuel 6 in Macau, China. Here's what happened.
Early in round one, Kim took Thiago down. Then he took his back. And for the rest of the stanza, Kim looked for chokes and punched his opponent. In fact, toward the tail end of the round, he sunk in a deep neck crank before the bell sounded.
Kim took round one easily.
Round two saw Kim take Thiago down early, falling right into a kimura attempt by Thiago. However, Kim escaped and controlled his adversary, with very few strikes or action, for the majority of the stanza. At the tail end of the round, Kim sunk in a D'Arce Choke that was stopped by the bell.
Kim is really, really a strong guy. Thiago needs a stoppage for victory.
In round three, Kim struck with Thiago for a while before snaking around to his back on the canvas (taking his back). And the long and the short of it is, that's exactly how the whole round went.
Dong Hyun Kim defeats Paulo Thiago by unanimous decision.
