UFC Fight Night 34 delivered a fun morning of fights and a great start to MMA in 2014. In the main event of the evening, former StrikeForce Welterweight champion, Tarec Saffiedine, defeated Hyun Gyu Lim by unanimous decision in an exciting bout. Tarec was in control for most of the fight, utilizing his excellent leg kicks and crisp kickboxing. Hyun Gyu Lim showed unbelievable heart by fighting through a series of brutal leg kicks that hobbled him throughout the fight.
In the co-main event of the evening, Tatsuya Kawajiri won his UFC debut over Sean Soriano in exciting fashion. Early in the second round, Kawajiri got Soriano to the mat, quickly got his back and sunk in the rear naked choke. Soriano clearly tapped, but the ref missed it, and Soriano went unconscious.
