Another eagerly anticipated matchup will pit Korean judo and mixed martial arts fighter Dong Sik Yoon against Fabio Silva of Brazil. There was a bit of drama when these two appeared center stage for photographs, Yoon adapting the usual stoic fighting pose while an in-your-face Silva brandished fists and stared menacingly at his opponent.
Yoon refused to be intimidated, and got a bit of a laugh when he said, “Sunday I will show a good fight. I don’t fight with my eyes, maybe he prefers to fight that way? I prefer to fight in the ring!”
Silva replied directly to his opponent: “I know what a real fight is, I will show you what a great fight is, and you will lose!”
