The UFC’s first trip to Singapore went about as well as the UFC could have hoped. The fights delivered, the fans were ecstatic throughout the event, and 2014 started off with a bang.

Today, UFC officials announced that the UFC Fight Night 34 show at the Marina Bay Sands sold out with 5216 fans in attendance. This is a huge win for the UFC and a positive foot forward in their quest to take the sport of MMA, and their brand, global. If they can bring an event to a country, and get a sold out show, the UFC will most definitely be back. In this case, the UFC does not expect to come back to Singapore until next year, but the show was clearly a huge success.

In the main event of the evening, Tarec Saffiedine and Hyun Gyu Lim put on an epic battle. Saffiedine once again utilized his brutal leg kicks to stagger Lim multiple times throughout the fight. Lim, although he could barely walk, would not give up or quit on the stool. Instead, Lim actually hurt Saffiedine with about 30 seconds to go in a wild finish to the final bell. It was a great main event to cap off a solid card for the fans in Singapore.
