UFC Fight Night 34 Quick Results

The stage is set for tonight’s UFC Fight Night 34 event in Singapore at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre.

For months, fans have been anticipating the UFC’s debut in South East Asia, and it finally comes into fruition today.

Former Strikeforce champ Tarec Saffiedine (14-3) faces Hyun Gyu Lim (12-3-1) in the main event, while long-time Japanese MMA veteran Tatsuya Kawajiri (32-7-2) locks horns with fellow UFC newcomer Sean Soriano (8-0) in the co-featured bout of the evening.

Saffiedine, 27, has never been finished in his pro MMA career despite three blemishes on his resume. The Belgian will finally make his UFC debut after several months of inactivity since January, 2013. Lim, meanwhile, has made a staggering start to his UFC career, garnering two consecutive stoppage victories in the octagon. A member of the highly touted Korean Top Team camp, Lim looks to make it eight wins on the trot come fight night.

Also on the card will be the UFC’s first ever Singaporean combatant. Royston Wee (2-0) will be making history in front of his own threshold as he looks to triumph over a former URCC champ in Dave Galera (5-0).
