ROAD FC 19 will take place on November 9, 2014 in Seoul, South Korea. Riki Fukuda is back as the main event, this time taking on Lee Dool-Hee. Yoon Dong-Sik faces his next challenger as well, standout Brazilian Amilcar Alves.
The surprise appearance of the night now goes to new cage announcer Bob Sapp, who will make his vocal debut in Korea. Aside from being an internationally known personality in the world of MMA, Sapp’s also grown some roots in Korea. He fought (and lost) in ROAD FC 8, and he made a hilarious guest appearance on “The Crying Fist” television show when it filmed “Tokyo Express” in Japan.
Fukuda will look to starch his third opponent in the ROAD FC cage when he faces Lee, who has won 6 of his last 7 fights. Lee stood in front of Pancrase King Ryo Kawamura in his last outing and won’t be starsturck by his new UFC famous foe. However, he could be struck by those fists.
ROAD FC is doing a good job with the female division, and this card sees local celeb dubbed “single mom fighter” Song Hyo-Kyung face Emi Tomimatsu, who recently put herself up in the rankings with a DEEP title shot and brief ownership of the belt.
Cha Jung-Hwan versus Alexandre Barros can’t be underestimated for the talent and experience that will be in the cage when these two well-known fighters-cum-coaches collide. Both stand and bang, but have massive grappling skills. Both are tough as nails. This fight is going to be watched closely on both sides of the Pacific.
A potential superstar will be launched as a contestant on the most recent Crying Fist season, Shim Gun-Oh, makes his professional debut. The massive young wrestler tore up his testers on the show, which immediately prompted ROAD FC CEO Jung Moon-Hong to offer him a contract. He’s a natural striker to go along with his wrestling, and the first one game enough to test him out will be Frederick Sloan, a contestant from a previous season.
