Thanks to four fight win streak, which includes highlight reel knockouts over Erick Silva and John Hathaway, Dong Hyun Kim has moved into the UFC’s top ten welterweight rankings.

Following Kim’s stoppage win over Hathaway at the TUF China Finale, which came courtesy of a spinning elbow, the South Korean is now ranked #10. Prior to the victory the noted grappler was #11.

Tyron Woodley, who is scheduled to fight Carlos Condit at UFC 171 on March 15th, dropped from #10 to #11.

Since joining the UFC in 2008 the 32 year-old Kim has gone 10-2, with 1 no contest.

The UFC’s rankings are voted on by a group of media members following each event.
