ROAD FC 027 update: Thundering prospects Aorigele and Kim Jae-Hun meet in Openweight match
From ROAD FC:
ROAD FC 027: 26 December, 2015 at the Shanghai Oriental Sports Center in Shanghai, China
Super Heavyweight prospects Aorigele and Kim Jae-Hun set to bring down the Stadium
28 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.
Another up and coming Chinese fighter has been brought in to compete in ROAD FC: Aorigele (20, Xi'an Sports University), the CKF Heavyweight Tournament winner who is transitioning to MMA from a bright young career in Sanda. At 188cm and 140kg, Aorigele is a force to be reckoned with. He KOed his finals opponent Wang Yanbo in just 7 seconds, with referee Zhao Zilong – also fighting on ROAD FC 027 – jumping in to stop the massacre. Aorigele is already looked at as one of the best heavyweights in China.
Stepping in the cage opposite will be Kim Jae-Hun (26, Apgujeong Gym), who became a professional fighter after Season 3 of the reality MMA show "Crying Fist". The fearsome slugger adorned in full-body tattoos earned a reputation by manhandling his opponents with his 180cm and 120kg frame. Kim debuted at ROAD FC 015 last year, and though he was defeated, he returned to the gym to temper his power and now comes back looking for a knockout win.
Aorigele and Kim Jae-Hun are sure to show off the excitement of Asia's new breed of monster fighters!
As previously announced, K-1 wrecking machine and Bellator veteran "Mighty Mo" Siala-Mou Siliga and Korea's home-grown K-1 veteran Myung Hyun-Man will meet in a clash of two verified striking supermen.
Also, China's top lightweight Zhang Lipeng will debut with ROAD FC against Korean Taekwondo master Hong Young-Ki in an action-packed style-versus-style match up.
Plus, China's Sanda legend Zhao Zilong will face Japanese legend Ikuhisa Minowa in a match with global appeal and historical significance!
