Maia vs. Kim Wiki Update Wiki

The eighth bout of UFC 148 saw Demian Maia take on Dong Hyun Kim in Maia's debut at 170 lbs.


Maia dove on a takedown at the start of the fight but Kim stuffed him and landed elbows to the temple before Maia transitioned to back control on the feet. Maia tripped Kim to the mat and attacked with punches, earning the stoppage as Kim offered no resistance. Immediately after the stoppage, Kim looked to be holding his ribs, which seemed to be injured badly on the takedown. Kim was in a lot of pain following the fight and Maia had a successful welterweight debut.


The end came 0:47 into the first round, giving Maia the TKO victory.


Speaking with Joe Rogan following the win, Maia said, "I did well [for the weight cut] and it was perfect. I didn't understand [what happened], but when I took him down he fell weird on his neck, so he was hurt and he was stopped."
