Korean MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fighter Lim Hyun Gyu will face former Strikeforce welterweight champion Tarec Saffiedine in the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s main event this Saturday in Singapore.

Lim (12-3-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) got his chance as a last-minute replacement, but the stage doesn’t get much bigger – this will be the first MMA event to be streamed exclusively on the UFC’s ‘Fight Pass’ digital network.

The subscription service, which is accessible on a free trial through February 28, is currently available in the United States, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

The UFC is the largest MMA organization in the world and the event is reportedly close to selling out the 6,000-capacity arena at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.

The 28-year old striker Lim, standing 6′ 2″ tall, was mighty impressive in his last two knock out wins, and the 26-year old Belgian champ Saffiedine, more known for his defense, will be making his long-waited UFC debut.

Lim is currently a +210 underdog in Las Vegas — meaning a $100 bet will pay $210, if Lim wins. On the other hand, Saffiedine is a -175 favorite — meaning $175 has to be bet to win $100, if Saffiedine comes out on top.

According to some experts, Saffiedine struggled too much in his last fight to be back with any confidence, and Lim just might be what the gamblers call a “live dog.”

Lim has shown much confidence and is bigger than his rival – he is fighting at a weight class about 20 pounds lighter than his normal weight.

Saffiedine did say that he could slow down Lim’s attacking style with his Taekwondo kicks.
