Nate Diaz vs. Dong Hyun Kim Reported for UFC 125

As first broken by Korean news site mfight.co.kr, Nate Diaz (13-5) will reportedly make his Octagon return against Dong Hyun "Stun Gun" Kim (13-0-1, 1 no contest), at UFC 125: Edgar vs. Maynard on New Year’s Day. Diaz most recently picked up his second victory at welterweight, beating the piss out of Marcus Davis at UFC 118 before choking him to sleep in the third round.

Kim’s last cage-appearance was a unanimous decision win over Amir Sadollah at UFC 114, in a performance that was marked by Kim’s superior wrestling and positional control. No, it wasn’t the most exciting fight, but it got the job done and preserved DHK’s unblemished record. Kim was scheduled to return against John Hathaway at UFC 120, but was forced to drop out of the fight due to injury. (Injury withdrawals are kind of a bad habit for Kim, who also missed scheduled UFC meetings with Dan Hardy and Chris Lytle.)

Diaz is on his way to becoming a real contender in the welterweight division — but as we saw in his lightweight losses to Gray Maynard, Joe Stevenson, and Clay Guida, he’s vulnerable against strong wrestlers. If Kim can blanket him like he did to Sadollah, it could be a sad night in Stockton.

King Kong would tailbar Godzilla in a second, if he didn't get singed first.

Uh ok, so I'll take a Tyrannosaurus to win it?

Also, the sweaty dong comment was gold. Shame on everyone for not thinking of that sooner.

I'm busting out my nerd card... but King Ghidorah is the Diaz brothers of the Kaiju. At least on CP, according to the Diaz supporters.

Mothra runs through all of them, plus Godzilla is still reeling from his fight with SpaceGodzilla.
Gardeninja- October 7, 2010 at 6:56 pm
I foresee a sweaty Dong all over Diaz.
cecils_pupils- October 7, 2010 at 4:30 pm
I'll take godzirra for the win
ghostboner- October 7, 2010 at 3:47 pm
Fuck it I say just let him rematch Guida at 155, but Nate can weigh in at 170. I still take the geico caveman.

Gamera is all hype, we've never seen his chin tested against a high level monster. Besides he's represented by M-1 global, and the co-promotion costs are prohibitive.
El Famous Burrito- October 7, 2010 at 2:54 pm
Pffffft.

They'd both lose to Gamera.

If Dong changed his name to Bong, Diaz would smoke him.

Margaret Cho probably sucks better dick than Godzilla, but Godzilla certainly has more of a documented predilection for colonic enemas. I can't really say who would win in a fight. Cho has one of the nastiest triangle chokes "in the business" and Godzilla has been known to tap out to fainting spells and chocolate cake. Anything that's 300 ft tall and breathes fire has to have some kind of a chance though.

Yup, I've got Stun Gun Kim by zergling rush Rd 1

@ ghostboner - I know what you mean. I will be the first to admit that I thought he would do shitty at 170. I thought that all of the problems that he had at LW would be worse at WW, since it wasn't like Nate was going to pack on the muscle. But he is doing pretty damn well.

Although... he hasn't fought a lot of great wrestlers at WW, and tenacious wrestlers were what did him in at LW. So we'll see...
ghostboner- October 7, 2010 at 1:51 pm
I hate to say it, but Nate is looking good at 170. Really hate to say it. Also, why would Dong have nightmares about Gabe Ruediger? I thought asians loved Paris Hilton?

I can pretty much guarantee Long Dong Kim will not be afraid, holmes boy, and will take Nathan down.
Videodrome_NOW- October 7, 2010 at 1:46 pm
@Clue -Nice


Obviously I've got Nate in this fight, but I think if Yao Ming takes him down, it's not that big of an advantage. Diaz jits is very dangerous and Dong wants none of it. I see this fight standing and late 3rd TKO for Diaz.
Turd Furgeson- October 7, 2010 at 1:45 pm
Lol @ armfarmer

@RwR

I was thinking the exact same thing; you just beat me to it.

Kim by lay n pray.

LOL comment of the fucking week

Well now I have the image of a 900 foot tall Margret Cho stomping around Korea and setting things on fire in my head. Thanks for that.

Should be a good fight. Nate looks like a whole new fighter now that hes moved up from his concentration camp weight.
ArmFarmer- October 7, 2010 at 1:31 pm
Isn't the city of Japan in Korea anyway? Same difference...

"If Kim can blanket him like he did to Sadollah, it could be a sad night in Stockton."

Every night is a sad night in Stockton.

The large Korean monster; all the kids/adults who took TaeKwonDo for a year and think they are bad ass.
Biffmiester- October 7, 2010 at 1:04 pm
@Burrito

I would've guessed the large Korean monster to be Kim Jong Il. Straight outta Pyongyang, son!
Sakuraba3900- October 7, 2010 at 1:03 pm
she is a fucking nightmare thats for sure... On an MMA note: Dong will be too scared to go to the ground so there will be no blanketing, Diaz via TKO late in the second.
El Famous Burrito- October 7, 2010 at 12:58 pm
@h.o.n.k.e.y.k.o.n.g.

The large Korean monster of your nightmares is Margaret Cho.
831 Father- October 7, 2010 at 12:54 pm
@NOTSOB: Exactly. h.o.n.k.y.k.o.n.g, I think you meant "Zergling" as opposed to "Godzilla"
