Lim believed main event status was a joke


After Jake Ellenberger was injured, Tarec Saffiedine versus Hyun Gyu Lim was elevated to the main event for the UFC Fight Night 35. When Lim was first told of the news, he thought it was a joke:

“Korean Top Team is full of jokesters, and we always play around with each other,” Lim told MMAjunkie through a translator. “So at first, when they told me that unfortunately Jake Ellenberger got hurt and I was going to be elevated to the main event, I didn’t believe it. I thought they were joking. I didn’t believe it until after my coach told me it was true.”

And then?

“I immediately accepted, he said.

I'd LOVE if the UFC had a card of this level on every single week. I don't know what $10 is to anyone else financially, but where I live I spend WAY more than that going anywhere on a Saturday.

The fact that everyone including the fighter himself thought it was a joke says quite a lot about the prospects of people paying for the 'fight pass' to see cards like this.Apparently it's impossible to cancel the 'free' trial of fight pass, so be careful if you think you're just gonna sign up for 2 months free and then cancel. Good luck with that.

That was real bro, I'm amazed the Mods buried it so fast. I guess The Wolfmans legal team is getting rid of any evidence that pops up
