ROAD FC 22 takes place on March 21, 2015 in Seoul, South Korea. Both main event fighters, the Lightweight Championship between Kwon A-Sol and Lee Kwang-Hee, have made weight.
All but one main card fighter made weight, that being Daiju Takase. He was .450g over and will reweigh within 2 hours. On the under card, Kiyoshi Kuwabara came in 2 kgs over and will also weigh in again later.
Lightweight Champ Kwon A-Sol did not like it when Lee Kwang-Hee grabbed his wrist as they went head to head in the face off, and shoved him back by his neck. CEO Jung Moon-Hong and Manager Ahn had to jump in between the two before it ended off the stage. This will be the third time they’ve fought and Lee looks ready to prove he can make it 3 for 3. Kwon is definitely at a high point in his career so ti hold be fireworks.
Other than that, the face offs were congenial for the entire card which features 14 fights in all.
On the main card, Riki Fukuda and Lee Dool-Hee rematch from their last fight that ended in a No Contest from an unintentional blow by Fukuda. Lee got dubbed “The Nation’s Testicles” by the Korean media.
Takase Daiju and Yoon Dong-Sik, two very well-known fighters from the golden age of PRIDE, will face each other and likely cause pain no matter how it goes down.
Jeon Uh-Jin and Park Jung-Kyo will be throwing leather, Tamura Issei and Cho Young-Seung will hopefully run a grappling clinic, and Lucas Tani and Sim Gun-Oh will be the biggest men on the card likely taking things to the canvas to finish.
The Young Guns under card features fighters making their pro debut from the Into or Central amateur leagues, fighters who need to climb back up in their careers, and foreign fighters getting their first taste of Korea – this time there being 3 from Japan.
