ROAD FC finalizes 8-Man Openweight Tournament for Inaugural Event in China

Post by Rizin=PRIDEFC on Fri Nov 20, 2015 11:35 am

ROAD FC 27 will be the first card ever to be promoted by the Korean company in China on December 26th of this year. They have decided to put together an eight-man openweight tourney that includes some massive individuals such as “Mighty Mo”, Choi Mu-Bae and of course the biggest of them all Choi Hong-Man.

On November 18th, ROAD FC held a press conference to announce a partnership between Chinese corporations Tencent, Qihoo360, Baidu, Xiaomi and Korean company Kakao. They are calling this collaboration “New Wave MMA:ROAD FC”. The purpose for this is to aggressively take over the Asian market and then the world.

On the same platform, the Korean promotion finalized the rest of the 8-man openweight tournament.

The matches that were added include Myung Hyun-Man (2-1) taking on Chinese newcomer Liang Lingyu (1-0) and the Korean giant Choi Hong-Man (2-4) versus 19 year-old debutant Louquanahou (0-0).

Myung was originally scheduled to fight “Mighty Mo” on this card before the tourney was made public. The brass figured a rematch between “Mighty Mo” (7-5) and Choi Mu-Bae (12-5) would serve as a better main event since it can be publicized as a revenge match for Choi, who was knocked unconscious by the Samoan at ROAD FC 26.
