ROAD Fighting Championship will embark on their third trip to China on July 2nd in Changsha, Hunan at the Hunan International Conference and Exhibition Center for ROAD FC 32. This event will be headlined by Bob “The Beast” Sapp and “China’s Heavyweight Supernova” Aorigele.
ROAD FC 32 will be massive, literally, with two of the biggest fighters on the promotion’s roster going head to head in an openweight main event. Bob “The Beast” Sapp and Aorigele will surely draw many viewers in China and around the world.
Even though “The Beast” (11-18-1 Overall, 0-1 ROAD FC) retired from professional fighting back in 2014, he return for RIZIN’s New Years Eve show and decisioned Akebono in a shootboxing rules bout. Before his win at RIZIN he was on a ridiculous 12-fight losing streak most of which ended in the first round. During that streak, he made his promotional debut at ROAD FC 8 and was knocked out in the second round by Kim Jong-Dae.
With that aside, he is said to be reinvigorated and ready to take another shot at mixed martial arts. He should bring a lot of eyes to the event especially in China since he is a worldwide phenomenon.
Stepping in across the cage from Bob Sapp will be a man that is twenty two years younger in Aorigele (2-3 Overall, 1-1 ROAD FC).
Aorigele entered the Openweight Tournament and faced Kim Jae-Hoon in the quarterfinals at ROAD FC 27. He blitz the former Yakuza member and dismantled him in less than thirty seconds. Then, he went on to fight Choi Hong-Man at ROAD FC 30 in the semis and was knocked out in a little over ninety seconds.
All in all, this fight should not be expected to get out of the first round and that is what most casual fans will love to see.
