MMA fighters that use Taekwon-Do

Are there any MMA fighters in UFC, Strikeforce etc. past or present that use Taekwon-Do as their fighting style? I see that a lot use Kickboxing etc. but I was wondering, if there are any fighters that use Taekwon-Do. As a Taekwondoka myself I am pretty interested about that.

Though Cung Le is a San Shou fighter, he has a background in TKD and he uses it a lot. Zelg Galaesic has a background in TKD too.

EDIT: Also, I believe I've heard that Dan Hardy has some in there... Could be wrong on that one, though.

Highly opinionated but out of touch with the current MMA scene.

According to wikipedia, he's a blackbelt.
