The UFC brought an action packed card to Seoul, South Korea. The card saw five finishes, all of the (T)KO variety, while the majority of the other fights ended in a split decision.

One of those split decisions was an action packed Strawweight fight between Seo Hee Ham and Cortney Casey. Although Ham came away with the decision, both fighters were awarded with a Fight of the Night bonus, and pocketed an extra $50,000.

The Korean Superboy Doo Ho Choi continued his streak of impressive knock out finishes. This time he caught Sam Sicilia on the end of a combination early in the first round. This was enough to earn the up and coming featherweight a Performance of the Night bonus.

The first fight of the night ended in spectacular fashion for Dominique Steele. In the third round, Steele picked up the lesser known Dong Hyun Kim and slammed him to the mat, knocking him out. The brutal finish earned Steele a Performance of the Night bonus.
