Pascal Krauss vs. Hyun Gyu Lim reportedly targeted for UFC 164

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

German welterweight and Roufusport member Pascal Krauss is reportedly set to face Hyun Gyu Lim at UFC 164 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

It was expected that with UFC 164 in Milwaukee, the UFC matchmakers would try and get Milwaukee-based Roufusport fighters on the card. According to a report from German website Ground and Pound, Roufusport welterweight Pascal Krauss will fight South Korea's Hyun Gyu Lim on the August 31st PPV.

Krauss (11-1) has been in the UFC since 2010, but has fought just three times since making the move from regional European shows to the big stage. He won a "Fight of the Night" award in his decision victory over Mark Scanlon at UFC 122 in Germany, but missed all of 2011 with injuries. "Panzer" then suffered his first pro loss as he was beaten by John Hathaway at UFC on Fox 3 in New Jersey. Krauss got back in the win column by beating up Mike Stumpf at UFC on Fox 6 in Chicago.

Lim (11-3-1) turned in a successful UFC debut against Marcelo Guimaraes this past March, knocking out the Brazilian with a well-timed knee to the head. He had previously seen his planned November 2012 debut against David Mitchell scrapped after doctors deemed him unfit to compete at UFC on Fuel 6 in Macau. Lim has won his last 6 fights, with 5 of them coming by KO or TKO.

UFC 164 is headlined by a lightweight title fight between Ben Henderson and T.J. Grant. If Krauss/Lim is confirmed by UFC officials it is likely that this bout will take place on the preliminary card.
