I figured Kim would win, but I'm surprised that it was by knock out. You can't put too much stock on unproven fighters like Silva. Kim may not be a top 5 yet, but I see him as a couple steps above the competition Silva has been beating.

I don't think Kim would have gassed as quickly as he did if Silva wasn't landing those big knees on him. I think Kim did an excellent job with pressuring and when he got Silva to the ground it was all him

I think Kim is a lot better than what he showed tonight. He went out trying to fight aggressively to gas Silva, which he did. But he also gassed himself a bit, though I do think Silva's knees played a big part in Kim gassing. Kim was very reckless, which normally he's not that reckless, and it paid off, but could have cost him.

For those saying he has no chin, I'd hate to disagree, but you are wrong. Kim can take a shot, just not a flying knee.

I hope he gets a top 10 guy next, he deserves it.

Silva decided not to grow up then... he just tries to get knockouts walking backwards, he's more worried about his next tattoo.

Kim is a retard, you'll see more fight technique watching monkeys on Discovery channel.

crazy fight, Good first round for DHK but he gassed worse than Silva.. then Silva starts tagging him and it looks like it only a matter of time and then POW haymaker on the button! Silva is out cold.. never would i have thought..

also impressed with DHK's chin and recovery..

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

I really hope Silva is able to put it together at some point, i love watching his fights, even Fitch and Kim can have a good fight with Silva.

This was a funny fight. Dong ended up gassing himself putting on that pace from the get go. It inadvertently helped em because Erick became really sloppy and engaged in a Korean Zombie type of fight.

Lack of experience in Silva's area.
- still lacking in cardio which leads me to believe he should cut a bit more weight on that frame and focus on HIT routines.
- keep composure even in very messy situations

Dong showed he wants to put on more exciting fights. But it was pretty reckless...hahaha! I'm almost certain KZ got into his mind.

Really wanted to see Erick Silva vs Rory.
