UFC Welterweight Dong Hyun Kim

On the heels of his impressive unanimous decision victory over Nate Diaz at UFC 125, welterweight Dong Hyun Kim was rewarded with a four-fight contract extension to remain with the world’s premier mixed martial arts show.

“Kim still has one match remaining according to the original agreement with the UFC, but the organization offered to extend his contract with satisfactory conditions,” IB Sports, Kim’s management company, told The Korean Times on Monday.

The talented 29-year-old owns a nearly flawless 14-0-1 (1 NC) record and is perfect through his first six Octagon scraps. Although “Stun Gun” has already shot down one of his primary objectives just days into the new decade, his next mission is to showcase his ever-evolving skills throughout the year.

“I set several goals this year, including re-signing with the UFC as well as competing in four matches,” Kim stated.

Following his 15-minute affair with Diaz, Kim called for a shot at 170-pound king Georges St-Pierre.
