give him alan belcher, even though belcher didnt look impressive against herman.

But maybe Kang can get a hi-light finish on him.

Drew McFedries if he isn't out of the UFC by the time Kang has his first fight. Does anyone know the status of McFedries' contract?

Kendell Grove. I think he can win it.

If I could chose though I would say Okami so he could cut line for a title shot. I have been waiting a year for the UFC to sign this guy. He couldve fought Anderson by now but he had to keep losing in Japan. Fool

The MW division is only going to get better from scouting. There isnt enough talent in the division to challenge the top 3 (Anderson, Henderson, and Franklin)

Kang hasn't looked too great recently. If they want to build him up, they'll probably want to give him a can.

A fair fight for him to take would be Sakara or Grove. Pretty well-know in the UFC but neither guys should pose any real threats to Kang on paper.

Umm...he's coming off two knock outs in a few month span. Both first round KOs might I add. I'm hoping he's focused now after his wife's death, but I don't think anyone can blame him if he isn't.

I'm hoping for big things in the future out of the guy.

Yeah, but hes 3-3 in his last 6, the 3 wins coming against relative cans, and the three losses coming everytime he steps it up.

Kangs overrated imo. But he has an exciting style and hes fun to watch, so hes a welcome addition to the ufc for me.

His list of losses post 2002 are quite reasonable, and his last three losses are to three great middleweights (Misaki, Akiyama, and Mousasi). I can't blame him for any of those.

I think Kang beats Grove and could use the instant name recognition of defeating a well known TUF champ... And otherwise if he loses, Grove could re-emerge as a player in the weightclass (untill someone catches him on the chin that is )

Not sure I'd consider Marvin Eastman a complete can. He has some pretty impressive wins and also has lost to a pretty nice list of fighters.
I'm expecting good things from Kang. I hope I'm not wrong.
