ROAD FC 019 All fighters are on weight


ROAD FC 019 weigh ins took place on 8 November, 2014 at the Seoul Ramada Ballroom in 4Seoul, South Korea.  All fighters from ROAD FC 019 Main Card made weight.  Yoon Dong-Sik was the only fighter who needed to take advantage of a 1-hour grace period to shed the 100 grams he was over.  All fighters from the Young Guns 018 undercard also made weight on the first attempt.

 

Special guest Bob “The Beast” Sapp will step into the ROAD FC cage to make his Cage Announcer debut at ROAD FC 019.  The Main Card will be streamed on Epicentre.tv at 8:00PM Korea Standard Time.

 

This will be ROAD FC’s biggest card yet, with a total of fourteen matches set to take place.  ROAD FC CEO Jung Moon-Hong committed to monthly shows, however, the 2014 Asian Games were held in Incheon, South Korea in September so there was not a ROAD FC event.  Mr Jung wishes to make it up to the fighters by putting on more matches for ROAD FC 019.

 

The Main Event of ROAD FC 019 is an exciting Middleweight Superfight between ultra-powerful finisher Riki Fukuda of Japan and tough-as-nails Lee Dool-Hee of South Korea.

Yoon Dong-Sik will face Amilcar Alves, and the two famous judokas will delight fans with some of the most exciting skills in the ROAD FC cage.

Two massive veterans of the sport, Cha Jung-Hwan and Alexandre Barros will meet in what will be a fantastic display of MMA from these very experienced fighters.

Korea’s long-time MMA staple Lee Kwang-Hee will welcome hot prospect Mun Gi-Bum to his very first Main Card match.

Beautiful celebrity fighter Song Hyo-Kyung will take on former DEEP Lightweight Champion Emi Tomimatsu in a high profile match up for global women’s MMA.

Korea’s hit MMA reality show “Crying Fist” contestants face off as wrestler Shim Gun-Oh faces striker Frederick Sloan.
