Stun Gun Kim, the only UFC fighter that goes by the name of a non-lethal weapon used to deter attackers. I’m still holding out for Bobby Green to change his moniker to ‘NERF Ballzooka‘ because those things were simply bad ass when I was a kid. The only problem is that if those little foam balls went underneath a piece of furniture — they no longer existed. It was like living rooms across America all had miniature black holes hidden under sofas back in the mid-90s.
Nerf Gun Kim sounds like a remarkable name, but I’m not quite sure the youth in South Korea had those toys. They were probably too busy giving the finger to North Korea. Dong Hyun Kim appeared on a show called ‘The Quiz That Can Change The World’ and revealed a few secrets that will probably not change the world in any given form — but they’re still interesting nonetheless. Props to CorMMA for the translation.
- Dong Hyun Kim revealed that he has many superstitions involving MMA. He told the audience that he never wears the same colored shorts as the ones he wore to fights he’s lost.
- Kim also stated he earns 107,000 dollars per fight in the UFC and that for every win his salary is raised 4,000 dollars.
- Kim also told the audience what his nickname was by hardcore Korean MMA fans. One of the nicknames was ‘Cicada Kim’ for his ability to stick to opponents.
- Another nickname was ‘Ant Hell Kim’ comparing Kim’s style to a torture technique involving burying someone in the ground and letting the ants swarm on the buried person.
