Former Strikeforce welterweight champion Tarec Saffiedine scored a decision victory over Hyun Gyu Lim early Saturday morning in Singapore, completing UFC Fight Night 34 and the first such card on the new "Fight Pass."
Fight Pass is the UFC's all-digital platform that is slated to host several events going forward. This card was also the first for the promotion in Singapore.
Saffiedine, the last Strikeforce champion before the promotion was consolidated with the UFC, was saved by the bell late in the fight when Lim started finding his range.
In other action, Tatsuya Kawajiri choked out Sean Soriano and Kiichi Kunimoto earned a disqualification victory over Luiz Dutra.
