Denis Kang Signs With The UFC!

2008-11-03

American Top Team fighter Denis Kang just signed a 4 fight deal with the UFC!

Denis made a big name for himself in Japan and Korea fighting in the PRIDE and SpiritMC organizations, where he developed a huge following.



Denis will now be able to showcase his skills to a whole new audience who hasn;t had the chance to see this exciting fighter in action. Denis has always expressed a desire to fight in the UFC and we are pleased we were able to help him get this deal done. Denis will bring a lot of excitement to the 185# division! Congrats Denis!

Very nice addition to the 185 pound class. He's going to be a top contender and will bring more depth into this weight division.

This is amazing news.

Kang has been one of my favourites for a while now. He's hit a few road bumps this last year with those losses to Akiyama and Mousasi but I think he'll really shine in the UFC, I can't wait to see it. He's got the tools to beat anyone in the MW division, and if they old Kang is back he'd be an extremely tough test for Silva.

SO pumped to see him fight the cage, wicked.

That is good news. The guy is a vet and deserves to be in the UFC.
I'm sure his recent 1st round TKO of Marvin Eastman had something to do with it.

Great news, after Pride losed I thought Kang should of gone to the UFC. Good to hear he is in it at last and will only make the MW division better.

He's going to get killed.

I like Denis, but I don't think he's ready for the UFC, even in that division.

He is a good decent fighter but i think a lot of you are getting ahead of yourselves a bit. He is good enough to maybe make the top 10 but he hasn't shown much to be a top contender.

Why would you make that claim?? Who has he beaten????

Marvin Eastman??? Gono??? Ninja Rua???

None of these make him a top 10 fighter.


He's lost to...

Gegard Mousasi?? Kang is his biggest win.

Yoshihiro Akiyama??? Once again, Kang is his biggest win.

Doerkson, Jason Miller, Misaki!!!

Like I said, I like Denis, I really do, but come on, top ten????

He'll beat lower level 185lbers in the UFC and that's it. If he fights ANYONE with skill there, he's toast.
