UFC Singapore: Square-offs

Pre-fight events continued on Thursday, for the inaugural UFC Fight Night Singapore. It was media day for selected fighters – Royston Wee, David Galera, Shunichi Shimizu, Kang Kyung-Ho, Sean Soriano, Tatsuya Kawajiri, Tarec Saffiedine and Lim Gyun-Hyu – as we went around interviewing whichever fighters we wanted.

Closing the session were the square-offs between selected fighters:

Kang Kyung-Ho vs Shunichi Shimizu (Bantamweight)

Don’t you think they don’t look like fighters? Kang (left) looks like he should be gracing covers of fashion magazines with his good looks, whilst Shimizu looks like the typical Japanese business executive, just imagine him in a suit with a briefcase.

Kawajiri has gone without a fight the whole of 2013, as he nursed an injury and also faced the uncertainty of DREAM FC. Read more about him in my interview on Yahoo! Singapore here.
