10 Lightweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2021


Kyung Pyo “Red Horse” Kim

 28 | 5’10″ | South Korea | 10-2 | 8 Finishes | 5 KO/TKOs, 3 Submissions’ (Armbar, RNC, Triangle) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 54-32 | Best Win – Tom Santos (11-8) 

In the last four years, Kyung Pyo Kim has only lost one fight. That loss was to now current UFC fighter Arman Tsarukyan. Now Kim is on a three-fight win streak, winning the Heat lightweight title in July of 2019. He’s one of the best prospects fighting out of South Korea and would be a big signing for the UFC.

His sole game plan is to get the fight to the mat and to do so he cuts off the cage well and executes some good wrestling. In the grappling department, he is tactical using submissions to move to dominant positions. Kim is a good submission threat and has fight-ending ground and pound.
