PRIDE and K1 veteran Choi Mu-Bae (12-6) will face decorated wrestler Jake Heun when he makes his ROAD FC debut on 14 August.
Choi, who began his career with PRIDE, made his MMA comeback with 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 around – even after getting KOed by Mighty Mo, he asked for a rematch.
Jake “The Honey Bear” Heun (10-6) is Tiger Muay Thai trained mixed martial artist who had just one year of professional MMA under his belt when his career launched into the international broadcast spotlight. He was on TUF 17 as a middleweight and TUF 19 as a light heavyweight, then he earned a contract on WSOF where he fought for three years.
As previously announced, Bruno Miranda versus Ki Won-Bin are set for a reserve match at ROAD FC 41 for the $1 Million Tournament.
Additionally, an openweight re-match will see Myung Hyun-Man versus Chris Barnett for a second time. The pair first met at ROAD FC 38, but ended via doctors stoppage after Barnett suffered a deep cut to his head.
“High School Fighter” Lee Ye-Ji faces Japan’s Maesawa Tomo in in a battle between two well-rounded fighters that will be youth versus experience.
The updated ROAD FC 41 car is as follows:
· Myung Hyun-Man vs Chris Barnett
· Bruno Miranda vs Ki Won-Bin
· Lee Ye-Ji vs Maesawa Tomo
· Choi Mu-Bae vs Jake Heun
