According to an article about Yoshihiro Akiyama in koreatimes.co.kr
He is the second UFC fighter to have Korean roots after Kim Dong-hyun.
Kim, meanwhile, is expected to sign a two-year contract extension with the UFC.
The deal will see him have four fights during the period, and make $29,000 a bout. In addition, if he wins, $3,000 will be added to his next fight money.
The 27-year-old fighter debuted with the UFC in May 2008. He has so far recorded a 2-1 record. Kim is likely to take part in his fourth fight in the UFC in May or June.
Great news... as long as Kim works on his cardio and stamina.
