EliteXC recently became partners with the Korean MMA organization Spirit MC. As part of their partnership, Spirit MC veteran Jae Suk Lim is now scheduled to take on UFC veteran Nick Diaz on March 29th. The Strikeforce event headlines one of the most anticipated fights of the year with Frank Shamrock going up against Cung Le, the battle for San Jose.
Nick Diaz is coming off a devastating loss to KJ Noons due to a cut he suffered during the fight. Prior to that fight, he beat Mike Aina at the EliteXC-Uprising event via a split decision. Although he hasn’t been fighting the way we all remember when he was in the UFC, it will still be exciting to watch him battle it out with Lim on the main card.
As for Jae Suk Lim, he currently holds a record of 9-3-0 with a recent win over Yoon Young Kim via TKO-strikes earlier this month. At his EliteXC debut in November of 2007, Lim easily slipped in a rear naked choke on Daniel Pinedo within the first round. With only one bout in his MMA career that went to decision, Lim is very well known for ending his fights in quick fashion. It won’t be easy to knock out Nick’s chin nor will it be easy to submit the black belt jiu-jitsu expert, so expect a war on March 29th.
