Stun Gun Kim, UFC’s first fighter named after a non-lethal weapon. Kim should start off every fight by screaming ‘don’t taze me bro!‘ but make it more of a question so it will make a little bit of sense. Let’s hope we get more fighters emerging from Korea with monikers like ‘Pepper Spray Seung,’ ‘Mace Myeong,’ and ‘Paeng Plastic Cuffs.’ Hopefully we’ll get someone named Dokko Diabetes Hwang — and he’ll be known as the slow killer.
Now that Stun Gun Kim has sent a friendly reminder to the welterweight division that he is still a threat, he recently made a statement to Korea’s Daum.net discussing a hypothetical match-up with Johny Hendricks.
I don’t care who I fight next. I know I can control Johny Hendricks with my grappling and wrestling. If I want to I’ll take him down. If I don’t want to I won’t. There is no fighter out there that can take me down easily. I can knock out Johny Hendricks if I go the striking route. If you get hit cleanly by me you will get hurt. I really hope the UFC gives me that opportunity.
Realistically there’s no reason why Kim shouldn’t get the winner of Hendricks and Lawler. The guy’s last loss was a freak injury against Demian Maia at UFC 148 nearly three years ago.
