link Claude Patrick wastes no time calling out Dong Hyun Kim.
"I was really excited watching Dong Hyun Kim, the Korean judoka fight. He's awesome. He fought Amir Sadollah recently and beat him. I'm watching it as a fan, that guy is really really good. I saw his weight class; I'm like, oh that's me."

I think it does happen, and I would bet that the UFC would prefer that Claude destroys him.

I would bet the opposite actually. The UFC has been looking for legitamate Korean fighters to help them break into the asian mma market. A fighter like Dong Hyun Kim is the type of guy the UFC probably does want to win.

He saw someone he could be in Kim that's why he called him out. Kims fight with Amir blew. That was the epitome of a LnP if I've ever seen it. I'm not sure he could do that to Patrick. Patrick has way too good of wrestling for that.

Well he's *sort of* undefeated. Really he lost to a badly out of shape Karo Parysian. Kim gasses every single fight, I would probably pick Patrick to beat him. All you really have to do is survive the onslaught in round 1.

Yeah his only real cardio issue was with Matt Brown I actually saw from him. And yes I think DHK would be on the UFC's good fight since well, DHK is the only Korean guy on the roster while The UFC has a lot of Canadian fighters including a super popular champ in GSP

I'd like to see this happen because I think Kim has an edge on Patrick, with Patrick being a step up in competition from Sadollah. And since Patrick called him out it gives reason for it to happen. He would be another win on Kim's undefeated record, legitimizing him a little more at 170.
