SEOK MO KIM
KIM made his professional debut just over a year ago but has already amassed an impressive MMA record of 2-2, with one of his wins being over DARE 1/11 fighter Will Chope. He has gained a reputation of being an entertaining fighter and one of the top talents of Korean MMA. He has a background in kickboxing and submission wrestling and trains out of Team Force, one of Korea’s top MMA teams.
He is a self styled pretty boy who claims to be a bit of a playboy, but with back to back submission wins in his MMA career he has managed to put his money where his mouth is.
Here are the thoughts of veteran MMA journalist James Goyder,
“I’ve been following Adam Kayoom’s career for a while as he is one of the best MMA fighters to ever come out of Malaysia and I’m looking forward to seeing him fight right here in Bankgok.
With a black belt in BJJ and no shortage of straps for his stand up fighting he certainly has all the tools to succeed as a professional MMA fighter.
Seok Mo Kim is highly rated in South Korea and has submitted both of his opponents he has won, but he will have his work cut out trying to get a BJJ black belt to tap.
This looks to be a very well matched fight between two fighters with very similar records and Kayoom will be forced to pull of a win with so many of his friends and students watching the fight in Bangkok,” he said.
