Welterweight bout: Dong Hyun Kim (15-1-1, 1 NC) vs. Demian Maia (15-4) - This is Maia's welterweight debut.
Will Maia use his jiu-jitsu like the Maia of old? Maia bumrushes him for the takedown. Gets the one hook and drags Kim down. The fight is stopped. Either his rib or hand is broken. It looked like he tapped. It's his rib apparently.
Official Decision: Demian Maia (16-4) def. Dong Hyun Kim (15-2-1, 1 NC) :47 via TKO (injury).
Maia says he's loves his family. He knows Kim's a judo guy and trained in that position a lot. That's very impressive if you know how strong Kim is and how hard it is to take him down. On with the show!
