After a disappointing 0-2 start to his UFC Career, Kyung-Ho Kang finally showed his true potential with a dominant third round submission over Shunichi Shimizu.
Kang immediately displayed his dominance in the first round taking submission specialist Shimizu to the mat. While on the ground Kang imposed his will hitting Shimizu with hard ground and pound and came close to submitting Shimizu with multiple triangles and armbars. Kang’s bad luck in the octagon looked to continue after he was deducted two points for illegal twelve to six elbows while in full mount.
Kang came out in the second round looking to finish, dominating Shimizu on the mat once more. Shimizu who looked a full weight class lower than Kang showed great heart taking everything Kang could throw at him.
In the third, Kang continued his dominance finishing the fight after moving to full mount and locking in an arm triangle choke at 3:53 of the round. With the win Kang moves to 12-7 while Shimizu drops to 28-9-10.
