UFC welterweight Rick Story is ready to fight once again.

After getting outwrestled in an upset loss to Charlie Brenneman at UFC on Versus 4, the once-fast-rising contender is aiming to fight someone who will stand and trade with him.

And he has a someone already in mind: fellow welterweight Dong Hyun Kim.

I don't think Dong will stand and trade with him. Rick by UD

I like this match up. BTW, I don't think Kim will stand and trade with Story. I don't think he was planning on standing and trading with Condit either. He just got caught before he could employ his strategy.

this mainly is a toss up..either Story runs him over or Stun Gun neutralize him..Story is a beast, but he has gotten beat by two very good wrestlers (Brenneman & Hathaway)..i think DHK has better grapplin control than both of em..the only thing he lacks in is his stand up, but his strikin from guard is deadly thou..i prolly would have to choose DHK..remember his name is Stun Gun and he wants GSP!..

I cannot be the only person who caught this! Props!

Story would blast Kim.

Story has been doing his fair share of calling guys out lately. He was calling out Nate Diaz yesterday on Twitter until he found out Diaz was already booked to fight Gomi.

Dong
Diaz
Fitch
Alves

He's certainly no punk, that's for sure. I like it.
