Let the "Dana White really dropped the ball!" bullshit begin.
Coveted free-agent middleweight Denis Kang has confirmed to FiveOuncesofPain.com his signing with K-1 HERO's but did not specify when or against whom his first fight will be.
While plenty of UFC fans will be upset by this bit of news, it should certainly not come as a shock. The Kang/K-1 deal has been a hotly-rumored topic for some time now, and UFC president Dana White has said that signing Kang was not a top priority for the UFC. According to White, the popular Kang is not an MMA "superstar," nor was he one of Pride's top fighters.
