0



Two rising bantamweights from opposite corners of the globe will meet in Las Vegas with the opportunity to earn a UFC contract this summer.

One half of the “The Twin Dragons” Josh Wang-Kim (5-1) will square off with EFC bantamweight champion Cameron Saaiman (5-0) on Dana White’s Contender Series, Season 6. Their bout is scheduled for the Aug. 23 installment, DWCS 51.

Two people with knowledge of the matchup recently informed MMA Junkie of the booking but asked to remain anonymous as the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.

Wang-Kim, 29, and his twin brother Josh, make up the professional MMA duo known as “The Twin Dragons.” The two brothers turned heads during their amateur careers, as they accumulated a combined record of 28-2 –  with 14 wins and one loss apiece. While John has been less active due to unexpected delays, Josh has finished four of his five wins. His only loss came via disqualification.

Saaiman, 21, made his professional MMA debut at 19 years old. He quickly shot up the EFC ladder en route to a title clinching win over Sindile Manengela in June. Four of his five professional victories came by stoppage.
