YOUNG GUNS 24
Experienced journeyman Jeon Doo-Je makes his second fight in ROAD FC 025 against Kim Won-Gi. Jeon hails from the early days of Korean MMA ten years ago in Spirit MC and MARS, and his record of almost 50 fights has 32 wins. Kim also started in Spirit MC, but almost his whole career has been climbing up in ROAD FC. Kim is now on a 2-fight win streak, and he will no doubt give Jeon a harsh welcome back!
Ki Won-Bin was the Central League Amateur Champion before his impressive debut against Lee Sang-Hyun at ROAD FC 020, although he lost. He will face Park Choong-Il from North Korea, whose heart-breaking life story that was revealed as a contestant on “Crying Fist” made him a fan favorite. Park bravely stepped up on late notice for his last fight, and he ended up with a loss. Both exciting young fighters will be eager to put their records on the right path!
Cho Young-Jun comes from a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu base, yet he has some very creative striking in his arsenal. He will face well-rounded Kim Kyung-Pyo, who made an impressive TKO victory in his debut. These two fighters are looking to work their way up in the very challenging ROAD FC Lightweight division.
Vicious striker Yoo Jae-Nam returns to the cage with a fantastic win over Shooto Champion Mikihito Yamagami. Next he will face another foreign opponent in Turkish stand out Kaan Kazgan, whose brother Murat showed incredible strength in both grappling and kickboxing during his ROAD FC debut.
Kim Yi-Sak will look to bounce back from a loss when he takes on aggressive kickboxer Park Chan.
Entertaining youngster Kwak Jong-Hyun will face Jung Joon-Hwi, and it promises to be a grappler-versus-striker affair, although both have well-rounded skills.
Jeon Yeong-Joon and Choi In-Yong will be making their MMA debut against each other. Jeon is a world silver medalist in Sambo and Choi has a good base in kickboxing, and many coaches expect him to have a good transition to MMA.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fighter Lee Sang-Hyun will face Choi Jong-Chan whose base is in Judo. Lee’s excellent debut showed a great striking game. Choi was on “Crying Fist” and his mentor is Nam Yui-Chul.
Styles will clash as Kim Woo-Jae’s quick feet and strong punches square off against Lee Wun-Joon’s boxing and wrestling in their co-debut.
As previously announced, top ROAD FC Bantamweight Kim Soo-Chul will next faec the legendary Marlon Sandro. China’s Dong Xin, a veteran of UFC’s TUF China, will make his debut with ROAD FC against Kim Nae-Chul. Kim Seok-Mo will look to build momentum from his last comeback win against Team Kazgan’s Onur Teker.
Shooto Pacific Rim Featherweight Champion Yuta Nezu will be challenged by aggressive rookie prospect Park Hyung-Geun. Japaan Women’s MMA standout Satomi “Sarami” Takano returns to face hot rookie Park Jeong-Eun. Well-known K-1 and RISE kickboxer Kwon Min-Seok will face China’s Yong Shun who is a rising rookie competing in CCTV’s televised MMA tournament “CKF”.
ROAD FC is the stage where legends shine, rookies thrill, and epic battles are waged that determine the future of MMA. From the pageantry of the grand entrance to the final crunch of the KO, ROAD FC showcases the very best of Mixed Martial Arts sports and entertainment. As we say in Korea, “Fighting!”
