The kid's got a ton of ability, but without proper conditioning and at least some semblance of a fight strategy, it's for naught.
I was high on Kim's abilities after watching him utterly destroy Jason Tan in his debut. Then, I thought he could surely tweak his performance after a controversial split decision victory over Matt Brown: get more cardio, pace yourself, and mix up your striking and submission attempts so the offensive attack isn't quite so predictable.
Here's a clue:
When you listen to GSP break down his own performance and the strategy he utilized against Penn, it's absolutely brilliant. Kim's last two fights by comparison, are like a broken record: jump on my opponent's back over and over again (when he's completely fresh), then leave it up to the judges while staggering around gassed for the next ten minutes.
Unless this kid can find a challenging training camp that can help him raise his game to the next level, Kim is in danger of getting stuck in the middle of the PPV card for the foreseeable future.
