ROAD FC 021 Full Preliminary Card for Young Guns 020
From ROAD FC:
Announcing the Full Preliminary Young Guns 020 Card for ROAD FC 021 on 1 February, 2014
12 January, 2015 – ROAD FC is excited to announce the full Young Guns 020 Preliminary Card for the first event of 2015: ROAD FC 021 on 1 February, 2015 at the historic Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul, South Korea.
Young Guns 020 will feature a total of eight matches from Flyweight to Welterweight. Many amateurs from the ROAD FC Into and Central Leagues are making their professional debuts. These young and hungry fighters will all come out with their best performances to make Young Guns thrilling.
Kim Wong-Gi vs Lee Hyung-Seok
In the Main Event of Young Guns 020, Kim Wong-Gi will face Lee Hyung-Seok. These are two very well-known fighters to ROAD FC fans; they have been around since the very beginning.
Kim's aggressiveness led to him being knocked out quickly, time and time again, so he changed his style and came back with a life-changing win at ROAD FC 018. Lee's story is the opposite: after four wins in a row, he lost in PRO FC Taiwan last year. Has Kim found the method for new success? Will Lee get his grappling game back on the winning track? The drama will unfold at Young Guns 020!
Rookie fighters Jung Je-Il and Kim Kyung-Pyo will meet at Lightweight. Jung's first pro match was a win over Oh Jae-Sung at Welterweight, so he is trying his hand in the lighter division to launch his career. Kim has waited almost a year to make his pro debut because of injury. They are both eagerly awaiting their chance to fight!
Oh Jae-Sung will take on his first foreign opponent, DXFC Champion Shota Fujii. Oh is with Team Fighter under Kim Hoon, so his heavy hands will match up well against Fujii's strong kickboxing. These two fighters will definitely be hunting for the knock out!
Veteran Kim Yi-Sak will welcome winning amateur fighter Kim Yo-Han to professional MMA. Yi-Sak is looking to reinvent himself and put on a performance that will make people give him a new, exciting ring name. Yo-Han is a wrestler with dirty boxing style who wants to become a ROAD FC Champion, and his first step will be facing a veteran!
ROAD FC 021 Final Main Card
The Co-Main Events "Champions Day" will be two ROAD FC Champions defending their titles against their number one ranked opponents. Featherweight Champion Choi Mu-Gyeom will face Seo Doo-Won, and Flyweight Champion Jo Nam-Jin will rematch Song Min-Jong.
One of South Korea's most popular rising fighters, Kim Soo-Chul will face Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt and UFC The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil veteran Wagner "Galeto" Campos.
Former Spirit MC Champion Kim "Armbar" Chang-Hyun will take on Japanese grappling stand out Sasaki Shinji.
Another beautiful female fighter, Park Ji-Hyae, will be making her professional MMA debut with ROAD FC 021 against Japan's Irie Miyu.
Grappling prodigy Tyrone Henderson and Tae Kwon Do Champion Hong Young-Gi have their first chance to fight on the Main Card.
