Dong-Yi Yang Signs With UFC

Dong-Yi Yang, teammate of "Korean Zombie" Chan Sung Jung on the Korean Top Team, has signed with the UFC.

The UFC announced Tuesday the acquisition of Yang's exclusive contract though no details for his promotional debut has been determined.

Yang (9-0) has finished all nine of his fights, eight by way of (T)KO. The 27-year-old South Korean holds a win from a strange fight (video above) over PRIDE veteran and 1996 judo Olympic gold medalist Pawel Nastula from Sengoku 4 in August 2008.

Yang previously fought at heavyweight but will be dropping down to middleweight to size up better in the UFC.

Yang joins WEC featherweight Jung and UFC welterweight Dong-Hyun Kim as the Korean representatives on the Zuffa roster.
