Su Jeong Lim MMA Debut

Korean Kickboxer and Muay Thai fighter Su Jeong Lim is set to make her MMA debut on August 15th. Known in Japan and Korea for her good looks and exciting fights, Lim has put together a 17-5 Muay Thai record and a 6-2 Kickboxing record. During that time she defeated Shoot Boxing star Rena, fought in the Girl's S-Cup, took bronze at the IMFA World Muay Thai Championships in Bangkok and competed for K-1.

Nicknamed the "Beautiful Fighter", Lim is also an actress. She has appeared on Korean TV and in a Thai movie called Chocolate. Another interesting fact about Lim is that she once competed on the Japanese TV show Flames Sports Competition. This show has been known to have female fighters fight 3 male comedians. Some miscommunication occurred where Lim thought it was completely fake and set up for a variety show and as a result she was seriously injured by the male comedians, who consisted of 1 who's fought for K-1 and 2 long time MMA practitioners. This led to South Korean outrage and a deal of controversy.

Lim will be making her MMA debut on August 15th for Revolution 2: Start of the Revolution.
