Add another successful debut to the list for the UFC, as they continue their expansion into Asia. In the main event, Saigon’s own Cung Le floors former UFC middleweight champ Rich Franklin at 2:17 of the first. It only took one opening for the Taekwondo blackbelt to capitalize with a viscous right hook that planted Franklin head first into the canvas.
It was an all around entertaining card, as Thiago Silva proved to still be dangerous, not only with his hands, but on the ground as well – submitting Stanislav Nedkov via arm triangle in the third. It seemed to be a great night for China’s favorites as “Stun Gun” Dong Hyun Kim defeats Brazillian, Pauolo Thiago. Takanori Gomi earns the judges nod over Mac Danzig and Takeya Mizugaki also earns the decision over Jeff Hougland.
