Road FC 50 - November 3 (OFFICIAL DISCUSSION)

Post by Kingfedor on Tue Sep 04, 2018 10:56 pm


ROAD FC will hold its landmark 50th event on 3 November with a debut event in the South Korean city of Daejeon.

The promotion has announced featherweight champion Choi Mu-Gyeom (8-4) will make his fourth title defense against top contender Lee Jeong-Yeong (5-1).

Choi won the featherweight title in 2014 following his entry in the ROAD FC Featherweight Tournament. In his final match against stand out Kwon Bae-Yong, he was the underdog, but surprised everyone with his well-rounded skills and his incredible defense. Choi has now made the most title defenses of any ROAD FC Champion, ahead of Seo Doo-Won, Marlon Sandro and Murat Kazgan.

Lee has become the standout in the ROAD featherweight division, with a balance of skills in striking and grappling. At ROAD FC 46, he rematched Kim Se-Yong for the top contender spot.

Champion Choi is 28-years-old and in the prime of his career. Challenger Lee is just 22 and his future looks very bright.

ROAD FC 50 will be held at the Chungmu Gymnasium. Expect more bouts to be revealed in coming weeks.

ROAD Fighting Championship has announced that ROAD FC 050 will take place on November 3, 2018 for the first time in the city of Daejeon, South Korea at the Daejeon Chungmu Gymnasium. The second match opened for the card will be a battle between legends as Choi Mu-Bae meets Fujita Kazuyuki.

“Heavy Tank of Busan” Choi Mu-Bae (12-7, Choi Mu-Bae Gym) is a decorated wrestler and one of the very first Korean mixed martial artists. In 2004 he began his career in the historic PRIDE FC where he fought five times. Choi has also seen action in K-1, Sengoku and Pancrase, and made his MMA comeback in ROAD FC in 2015. With wins over Soa Palelei, Gary Goodridge, and Dave Herman, Choi has always proven himself to be one of the toughest guys on the planet. Even after getting KOed by Mighty Mo, he asked for a rematch!

Fujita “Ironhead” Kazuyuki (17-14, Team Fujita) is a living legend who started his career in freestyle wrestling, and narrowly missed being an Olympic competitor in Greco-Roman. This led him to a career in pro-wrestling in Japan, where he first came to fame. Like Choi, Fujita made his pro MMA debut in PRIDE, and notably fought in the very last event. He also fought in K-1, Sengoku, and Rizin FF 1 which was his return to a second life in MMA. Fujita counts wins over Ken Shamrock and Yoshihiro Takayama in PRIDE, and faced the all-time elites in Cro Cop, Fedor, and Wanderlei Silva. He rides a 2-fight win streak into this match.
