Road FC to have 32-man lightweight tournament with $1 million prize

Post by MR.WILLIE on Wed Oct 05, 2016 1:29 pm

Road Fighting Championship, which is based in South Korea and hosts events in the Asian region, announced last Saturday that they will be hosting a lightweight tournament with a $1,000,000 prize. They’re asking for the best fighters in the world to join, and even prodded at Jose Aldo, who currently wants out of his UFC contract.

According to a promotion official, the tournament will start on Spring of 2017. It will be a 32-man lightweight tournament, meaning it will take 5 rounds to crown the winner. Those 5 rounds will be spread across the year, and Road FC will return to Korea, China and Japan for those events.

The tournament champ will take home the entire $1,000,000 prize, but purses for the earlier bouts will be negotiated individually.

To date, Road FC has hosted 33 major events, with 6 of them happening in 2016, and 2 more scheduled before the year ends.

That's not bad at all, still better than what some make in UFC over the course of 5 shows.

I wonder who they will draw into this.

Any and every free agent available lol

Akhmat got a bunch of US talent by having big payouts(even though they renigged and ruined their tourneys)

They could attract quite a few names including bellator talent.

They should use the same stream service as Rizin. Was the best stream I've seen.

^Cygames is all I know about the Rizin stream service. It was the first I heard of them.
