ROAD FC 21 weigh ins took place on January 31, 2015 at the Grand Hilton Hotel in Seoul, South Korea. Twenty-seven of twenty-eight fighters made weight and 14 bouts will proceed.
The main event is the Featherweight Championship bout between current title holder Choi Mu-Gyeom and challenger Seo Doo-Won. Both fighters easily made weight and a rather jovial face-off ensued.
Choi was a dark horse in the 2013 Featherweight Tournament, in which he landed a finals spot against stand out Kwon Bae-Yong. Choi earned a very deserved decision from the judges from a performance that saw him outclass Kwon in all aspects.
Taking on Seo is an interesting concept, since Seo only fought once last year which was his seconds-in KO of Joachim Hansen. Both Choi and Seo have very developed games, so this should be a very well-fought match. Choi is riding a definite confidence high.
The co-main event is the interim Flyweight Championship between Song Min-Jong and Takeshi Kasugai. As Champion Jo Nam-Jin was injured ahead of their match, Kasugai was a late notice fill in and Song will still get to contend for a Championship belt.
A bantamweight belt eluded Song in a very so he dropped to the hot division of flyweight, and again contested for the gold against Jo Nam-Jin. The match was very close, with many arguing Song’s active game should have counted for more. He was granted the rematch.
Now, with Jo out, he’ll meet a very tough Kasugai who has wins over stiff competition as well, although a title has eluded him as well. Perhaps Kasugai is Song but a bit more matured and experienced, but both fighters have a full set of skills, endurance, and aggression to boot. This will be a popping match.
Also on the card, Uber-prospect Kim Soo-Chul is back facing a very experienced BJJ black belt in Brazilian warhorse Wagner Campos, and Tyrone Henderson gets a main card shot against controversial Hong Young-Gi.
