ROAD FC 25 will see the South Korean promotion head to its hometown after its first event in Japan. ROAD FC 25 will have two Champions face off at featherweight in a super fight and 61kg Champ Lee Yun-Jun faces 65 Champ Choi Mu-Gyeom.
Also announced on the card will be bantamweight phenom Kim Soo-Chul who also jumps up a weight class to take on former Sengoku Champ Marlon Sandro. Kim literally just fought at ROAD FC in Japan and stunned with a first-round finish over Japanese ranker Taiyo Nakahara. Sandro represents another heavy mountain to move, as the veteran of more than 30 wars and a Brazilian jiu jitsu black belt under André Pederneiras will have already seen every move Kim wants to make.
Another compelling match on the card is Japanese superstar Yuta Nezu, current Shooto Pac Rim Champ, will face rookie prospect Park Hyung-Geun. Nezu is on a tear in Japan, having added Motonobu Tezuka and “Wicky” Nishiura to his resume. He is a supreme tactician who has proven that his game plan is peaking. Park is just 2-0, but those back to back wins in 2015 which include a KO over Han Yi-Moon make ROAD FC think he’s ready for deeper waters.
Sarami is back after halting Song Ga-Yeon’s celeb status at ROAD FC 20, and she’ll face another rookie in Park Jeong-Eun. Korea is somehow breeding these tiny female terminators who have no concept of the phrase “mismatch on paper. Park was a late notice fill in against Emi Fujino, and she went the distance with her much more experienced opponent. Sarami will now be there to test her grappling acumen.
ROAD FC sets its sights on China with the addition of two Chinese names to the roster: Dong Xin of TUF China and Yong Shun of CCTV-broadcasted CKF. Dong will face Kim Nae-Chul and Yong will face Kwon Min-Seok.
Rounding off the main card is Kim Seok-Mo versus Onur Teker of the Kazgan Gym in Turkey.
