Absolutely love this fight. Saffiedine is one of those highly technical strikers and Lim has looked great so far.

Just don't know why I should buy Lim yet? Hope he turns out good, but I don't understand why I should be excited? Saff is in a tough spot though, long layoff, fighting in Lim's backyard...

With working with Team Quest, would it be a shock to see Saff wrestle here? Cage work...

Lim is a South Korean fighting in Singapore. Going by your logic, Russia is Saffiedine's backyard too. Just because South Korea and Singapore are both in the biggest continent in the world doesn't make the two countries similar. I don't see any advantage that Lim has by fighting in Singapore.

Anyway, really disappointed with this card. Wanted to go initially, but decided that the card is not worth my $88. Turns out I have guard duty on that entire day too, so I won't even be able to stream it. Maybe next time when they return with a better card, then I will go.

His one advantage is that it's closer to his time zone, so no jet lag. IF he actually trains in South Korea.

An impressive KO victory over Saffiedine (which is what he does) puts him a win away from a title shot.

Ok, settle down. I obviously thought it was in South Korea.
