From ROAD FC:
ROAD FC 027: 26 December, 2015 at the Shanghai Oriental Sports Center in Shanghai, China
Heavyweight Match between "Mighty Mo" Siala-Mou Siliga versus Myung Hyun-Man is the first fight to be announced
22 October, 2015 – ROAD Fighting Championship will make an historic global expansion into China with ROAD FC 027 in Shanghai on 26 December, 2015. The event will take place in the 18,000-capacity Shanghai Oriental Sports Center, a premier facility built in 2008 to showcase international sporting events.
For the first exciting matchup of the event, K-1 wrecking machine and Bellator veteran "Mighty Mo" Siala-Mou Siliga (45, AGUIRRE'S FIGHTING SYSTEM) and Korea's home-grown K-1 veteran Myung Hyun-Man (30, FREE), will meet in a clash of two verified striking supermen.
"Mighty Mo" is one of the most recognizable fighters with a legendary list of accolades in the sport who is still going strong. He made his home in K-1 where he racked up an impressive number of fights in kickboxing (now 20-20) while simultaneously transitioning into MMA. In kickboxing, he has wins over Gary Goodridge, Remy Bojansky, and none other than fellow ROAD FC Heavyweight Choi Hong-Man. Mighty Mo kept his moniker "The Korean Killer" by making quick work of long-time rival Choi Mu-Bae in his ROAD FC debut with a KO in just 37 seconds of the opening frame.
Myung is a new breed of Korean MMA fighter who has a 30-fight kickboxing record before he transitioned into MMA. He is respectable 1.90cm which he uses very well to pressure his opponents in the ring, and he loads up on punches with a reach that can KO just about anybody. Myung's speed, timing, and power are all exemplary for a man of his size as well. He exhibited all of these in his ROAD FC debut by KOing late stand in Jairo Kusunoki in just 35 seconds.
Mighty Mo and Myung Hyun-Man did not let their fans down at ROAD FC 026 on 9 October, so they are back in quick fashion to put on what will be another thrilling battle for ROAD FC fans in Shanghai, China!
