“360 GAME presents ROAD FC 024 in Japan” opening press conference statements

From ROAD FC:

ROAD FC 024 in JAPAN on 25 July, 2015 – Opening press conference held in Seoul, South Korea

17 July, 2015 – On the 16th of July, ROAD FC held a press conference at the ROAD FC Apgujeong Gym in Seoul, South Korea to open the domestic promotion's first overseas event, "360 GAME presents ROAD FC 024 in Japan".

In attendance were were ROAD FC CEO Jung Moon-Hong plus Main Card fighters from South Korea including Choi Hong-Man, Choi Mu-Bae, Yoon Dong-Sik, and Middleweight Championship Contender Jeon Uh-Jin.

Mr Jung spoke at length about ROAD FC's globalization strategy, and how South Korea's rising MMA righters play a major part.  He said,

"Just as most countries have a professional soccer league, we've tried to make a native league for MMA in order to grow it and produce good fighters… I hope people will cheer and support us to make the second MMA boom."

During the press conference, the topic of MMA hero Fedor Emelianenko's recent announcement to return to MMA came up.  Mr Jung had the following to say,

"It's possible we could sign Fedor."

Mr Jung furthered discussion on the topic by stating,

"The UFC is not a dream league.  Only ten fighters will ever make one billion won (close to 1 million USD).  This year in ROAD FC, more than ten fighters will make a million (USD)."

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!"
