Tarec Saffiedine made a successful UFC debut by battering worthy challenger Hyun Gyu Lim with a series of leg kicks in the main event of today’s UFC Fight Night 34, the first-ever event to air on the UFC’s new digital subscription service “Fight Pass.”
The bout was a rousing war that saw both fighters dropped muliple times. Lim’s left leg was obviously injured from Saffiedine’s relentless leg kicks but he never stopped fighting, nearly finishing the fight in the fifth and final round.
Tatsuya “Crusher” Kawajiri also made his successful Octagon debut with a second round submission over fellow newcomer Sean Soriano.
