The new comes straight from Denis Kang's gym, American Top Team:
American Top Team fighter Denis Kang just signed a 4 fight deal with the UFC!
Denis made a big name for himself in Japan and Korea fighting in the PRIDE and SpiritMC organizations, where he developed a huge following.
Denis will now be able to showcase his skills to a whole new audience who hasn;t had the chance to see this exciting fighter in action. Denis has always expressed a desire to fight in the UFC and we are pleased we were able to help him get this deal done. Denis will bring a lot of excitement to the 185# division! Congrats Denis!
Kang is a great addition to the UFC Middleweight division that is looking for top challengers for Anderson Silva. Kang holds a 31-10-1 record and at one point in his career went 23 fight straight fights without a loss.
In his most recent outting, Kang KO'd Marvin Eastman in the first round and only needed 48 seconds to get the job done.
It is not known exactly when Kang will make his UFC debut but after just fighting last weekend in Calgary for RAW Combat, it will most likely not happen until early 2009.
