27 May, 2015 – ROAD Fighting Championship will launch its global expansion by holding its first-ever overseas event in Tokyo, Japan on 25 July, 2015. ROAD FC 024 will take place at the 10,000-seat Ariake Coliseum, the 2020 Summer Olympics venue for tennis.
At ROAD FC 024, legendary female fighter Shinashi Satoko will meet top prospect Park Ji-Hye at Atomweight. Shinashi is the former Smackgirl and DEEP Women's Flyweight Champion who retired from MMA to start a family in 2009. With the popularity of Women's MMA rising, Shinashi returned to the sport last year. Now at 38 years old she has won three straight fights during 2014, proving her comeback is serious.
Meeting Shinashi will be one of Korea's new stars on the horizon Park Ji-Hye. Park won her professional debut with an excellent performance that resulted in a TKO. She is 24 years old and has confidence that her complete MMA training with Team Sovereign will give her the win over Shinashi.
Shining star versus rising star, Shinashi versus Park promises to heat up the Women's Division!
