UFC 168 is over so now is a chance to catch your breath for a few weeks and gear up for an exciting new year for the ... wait what? There's another event next week? And it's early in the morning?! Well that changes things up a bit. The UFC's first event of 2014 will be held in Singapore, with Tarec Saffiedine fighting South Korea's Hyun Gyu Lim in the main event. Lim replaced the injured Jake Ellenberger on the card and it's the biggest fight of Hyun's career. He's 2-0 in the UFC with brutal KO wins over Marcelo Guimaraes and Pascal Krauss.
Tatsuya Kawajiri makes his UFC debut as a featherweight against new signing Sean Soriano. Hacran Dias was set to face the Japanese star but had an injury of his own, so the main and co-main events have both been affected by the injury bug.
There's no real "main card/preliminary card" order to this show. It's fight 1 all the way to fight 10, and it will all be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass. The digital subscription network is free through February 28th and includes this event, so if you were worried that this show would be a pay event, worry no more!
Here's the full card, which starts bright and early at 7 AM ET/4 PM PT. It's about as close as we can get to reviving the Bloody Elbow Night Crew.
