Undefeated Korean welterweight Dong Hyun Kim (12-0-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) has been forced to withdraw from a planned UFC 110 bout with Chris Lytle (27-17-5 MMA, 6-9 UFC).

A replacement for Kim wasn't immediately known, but Lytle is expected to remain on the card.

Kim had sought his fourth-straight UFC win, thought the road to his first three victories hasn't necessarily been a smooth one. "Stun Gun" narrowly edged Matt Brown in a September 2008 split decision, and Kim also had a loss to Karo Parisyan overturned to a no-contest when "The Heat" failed a post-fight drug screen.

Kim also holds UFC wins over T.J. Grant and Jason Tan. Six of Kim's 12 career victories have come by knockout or TKO.

tough for Kim. I am a fan of his, and hope he heals up and comes back stronger than ever.

I thought DHK was going to win that fight. But it seems like everyone is pulling out these days.

But atleast Joe Silva has some time to find an opponent.

Yeah, Brown's a good replacement. Same with Ellenberger if he wins his next fight. I like Condit but I think he'd be too much for Lytle on the ground.
