UFC Singapore Results: Kyung-Ho Kang Submits Shunichi Shimizu


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.

Daniel Reveles
Born and raised in Santa Barbara, California, Daniel Reveles' interest in Mixed Martial Arts began at the age of fourteen while attending a Fantasy Football draft at a Friend's house. That day Daniel's buddies ordered UFC 88 on Pay-Per-View featuring lauded striker and hometown hero Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell squaring off with Division One Wrestler “Suga” Rashad Evans. After seeing “the wrestler” Rashad Evans put the Ice Man out cold with an overhand right, Daniel became instantly hooked by the unpredictability of the sport. Since that moment Daniel has become well versed in Mixed Martial Arts History and has yet to miss an event. Daniel is currently studying at the University of California Santa Barbara to receive his Bachelor's Degree in Communications with hopes of becoming the next big media mogul. When he is not watching MMA or studying you can find Daniel hanging out with his family and friends or taking in a game at the lovely Dodger Stadium.
