In his post-fight interview with FUEL TV, Kim was asked if he has anyone in mind for his next opponent. After all, UFC Matchmaker Joe Silva is a big fan of fighters helping him with his job by simply speaking their minds and calling out prospective foes.

Kim didn't disappoint. His answer was short but sweet.

"Demian Maia."

I wanna see that fight really bad.  I think it will look a lot like Maia/MacDonald.  Just crazy grappling all over the place.

Maia is much higher up the ladder and needs to fight a top 5 opponent next.

I want to see this fight. First one was a bit of a fluke, and with the way both Maia and Kim have fought recently.... Oh man I would probably watch this if it were the main event.

Well if you take the previous Maia fight out of the equation, DHK's only loss is to the interim champion.  The Maia fight was just a fluke injury.  DHK is very overlooked and I think he deserves a shot just as much as Maia.

Kim isn't being overlooked. He has won six decisions (plus one finish) over mid level competition. Paulo Thiago (1-3 last four before Kim) is his biggest win in the UFC.

In his last fight Maia finished Rick Story who holds wins over Johny Hendricks and Thiago Alves.

As far as WW ranking goes, Maia and Kim are miles apart.

As dominant as Kim was this weekend, I see Maia sunning him with ease, thiago gave up way to easy and wasn't even trying to counteract Kim in the third round. And I'm a thiago fan Phone Post

Unfortunately, he's not going to get it right now. Maia wants Diaz or Fitch, so I'm assuming if Koscheck gets Nick, he'll be fighting Fitch next. Phone Post

Maia has earned his shot against the top drawns of the welterweight division. But Kim is a freaking beast. I am not that sure that Maia would sub him with ease. It will be difficult for the UFC the find a good match up for Kim at the moment (even though the division is so stacked) . Ellenberger would have been a good pick but with his lose to Hieron Kim really deserves a better opponent.

 

I am pretty sure they are going to make Kos Diaz just because of the marketability of the fight. So i guess he has to hope that either Rory comes out of his bout with BJ unscratched or he might have to fight someone like Hardy (i dont think the will make Fitch Kim unless it is somewhere in Asia again).

 

Still i have Kim knocking at the door of top five at the moment if he isnt already.

Kim vs Pierce? If Kim can outgrapple Pierce then I'm impressed.

Kim deserves this fight after how the last fight ended with a freak muscle spasm. Let them fight in asia for the rematch, i'll bet the house on Kim.
