UFC 94: Karo Parisyan vs. Dong Hyun Kim

What a snore and hug fest! There definitely should have been more explosion and dynamite in this fight, instead it turned into a 3 round snoozer. Neither fighter should have won. They should have counted this a draw.

Kim slides free and is slammed hard to the canvas with a judo toss by Parisyan. Both fighters stand and Parisyan is warned for spitting out his mouthpiece. Referee Josh Rosenthal informs Parisyan that another offense will result in a one-point deduction. Kim lands a crisp left to the right side of his opponent’s head.
