stop.  In the second round, Fukuda accidentally illegally kicked Lee in the groin.  The doctor had to be called in to assess the damage.  Lee was able to resume fighting, however, Fukuda accidentally kicked him again.  Then, Lee could not continue.  The match was judged to be a “No Contest”.

 

At ROAD FC 022, Lee Dool-Hee will have a second chance at unfinished business with Fukuda Riki.  Lee stated, “Fukuda Riki made me famous because with that low blow I got named ‘The National Testicles’.  I will return the favor by giving him a comfortable KO.”

 

Fukuda stated, “I am withdrawing my decision to go to Welterweight.  As soon as possible, I want a chance to compete for the ROAD FC Middleweight Title.”

 

Yoon Dong-Sik vs. Takase Daiju

 

 

Legendary MMA fighters “Arm Bar King” Yoon Dong-Sik (Team Yoon) and “Japanese Kakutogi Idol” Takase Daiju will finally have their chance to meet in the ROAD FC cage.

Yoon was an Olympic-calibre Judoka who made his professional debut in PRIDE one decade ago.  Since then, Yoon has become a Korean MMA legend.  Even at the age of 42, he is determined to have great success in ROAD FC.  Yoon lost to Fukuda in his ROAD FC debut last year, but he came back to defeat Amilcar Alves with a clear cut Unanimous Decision. Yoon has faced many ROAD FC veterans before: Melvin Manhoef, former Champion Shungo Oyama, and Andrews Nakahara.
Takase is a 17-year long most notable veteran of MMA.  He began his career in PRIDE in 1998 and was one of the first Japanese fighters in the UFC.  In a remarkable match with Anderson Silva, he became the only man to ever choke out the great champion.  He has also faced ROAD FC veterans Ikuhisa Minowa and Kim Hoon in his long career of 28 fights.  Takase made a stunning debut in ROAD FC when he knocked out Whi Seung-Bae.
Both fighters are eager to prove they are not just the past, but the present and the best of ROAD FC!
The Lightweight Championship

 

The Main Event will be ROAD FC Lightweight Champion Kwon A-Sol’s first title defense against former rival “Krazy” Lee Kwang-Hee.

 

Their rivalry began eight years ago.  Kwon (Team ONE)  challenged Lee (Extreme Combat) twice in Spirit MC, but was not able to wrestle the Welterweight Title from him.  Now it will be Lee who will aim to keep his resurgence by facing his former rival for the ROAD FC belt.  The Lightweight Championship between Kwon A-Sol and Challenger Lee Kwang-Hee truly has the makings of “bitter rivals” written all over it!
