ROAD FC 23 took place on May 2, 2015 in Seoul, South Korea. The Young Guns 22 prelims were 8 fights deep, featuring some new prospects to watch.
Team MAD’s Cha In-Ho made quick work of Son Gyu-Suk and should probably earn a spot on an upcoming main card for his dominant performance.
Kim Seok-Mo showed much improved takedowns and kicking against Kawaguchi Yutaro which may signal his resurgence.
Jung Young-Sam and Hong Sung-Ho put on the most technical fight of the card, with superb grappling exchanges mixed with some brutal striking. Hong got the split decision, but both fighters should be watched in the future – talented guys.
Son Jin-Ho and Choi Jong-Chan went at it with a bit less fines but excited the vocal crowd, and Son’s strong second round gave him the decision.
La In-Jae and Jang Dae-Young won their respective matches with fines, and in very different styles. La used his grappling well and pushed through a barrage of punches, while Jang came out very aggressive at the hand shake, but showed a very calm demeanor with a quick KO.
Team Force’s Kwak Jong-Hyun looked very good despite taking three groin shots. He’s improving in all areas, and has a likab;e personality to go with it, so he should start to become a fan favorite.
Seo Jin-Soo should also pull ahead of the pack as well, for his smart game plan adjustments and brutal knees, one of which KOed Lee Yoon-Jin.
