BloodyElbow reports that the UFC has signed South Korean striker Seo Hee Ham, a 15-5 veteran of various Asian promotions including Deep, Road FC, and Smackgirl. In 2013, Ham won the Jewels featherweight (106 pound) title, and has won her last six fights. Though the 27-year-old has spent the majority of her career near the atomweight limit, she will be entering the UFC’s 115-pound strawweight division.

Due to her wild, aggressive striking style, Seo Hee Ham has been nicknamed “Hamderlei Silva,” in tribute to Wandy. Her Wiki page tells us that she also carries the nickname “Arale-chan” due to an apparent similarity to the robot girl in Dr. Slump. This open workout video refers to her as “Little Cutie.” We’ll just stick with Hamderlei Silva, okay?

Hamdy trains at Busan Team M.A.D. alongside UFC fighters Dong Hyun Kim and Kyung-Ho Kang. A date and opponent for Seo Hee Ham’s first UFC fight has not been announced. It should be noted that despite the Axe-Murderer comparisons, Ham has earned a grand total of zero knockouts in 20 professional fights. 13 of her wins have come by decision, and two by armbar.

Ham’s win over Alyona Rassohyna at Road FC 18 in August is after the jump…
