ROAD FC 013 Results: Nam Yui-Chul retains 155-lbs belt in main event

For the second consecutive time, Nam Yui-Chul (17-4-1) has come up victorious against Kume Takasuke (15-3-4). At this past Saturday’s ROAD FC 013, the South Korean defeated Takasuke in the main event, retaining his Lightweight championship belt after going the distance.

ROAD FC 013 took place on Saturday evening at the J.H. Park Stadium situated in Gumi, South Korea. The event was streamed online at http://www.ustream.tv/roadfc, providing fans from around the world an opportunity to catch all the fights for a price of $9.99.

The co-main event featured Welterweights Andrews Nakahara (4-2-2) and Jung Hwan Cha (10-6-3), in a match-up that produced fireworks from both combatants. Nakahara and Cha stood toe-to-toe in the ROAD FC cage, delivering uncountable strikes that made it difficult for the judges to score and render a winner. The match-up was hence ruled a draw.

Min Jung Song sinks in a Rear-Naked Choke submission on former UFC vet Issei Tamura.

Japanese MMA legend and staple Minowaman (57-35-8) had plenty of reasons to celebrate in his ROAD FC debut, delivering a highlight-reel knockout that sent his opponent, Kim Hoon (9-10-1, 1 NC), crashing onto the canvas. This was the 37-year-old’s 100th pro MMA bout, and he bagged a victory in style proving to the worldwide audience that he’s still going strong having been in the game for more than a decade.

Elsewhere on the fight card, “The Running Man” Min Song Jung (6-6) defeated former UFC vet Issei Tamura (7-5) with a third round choke, while Koji Nakamura (12-8-3) picked up a TKO victory over A Sol Kwon (16-8) in the first match-up of the main card.

Bae Yong Kwon (9-3) advanced to the ROAD FC Featherweight tournament semi-finals after gaining a TKO stoppage win over Kosuke Umeda (13-13-3). The other semi final bracket, which had Gil Young Bok facing Choi Moo Gyeom, was cancelled after the former failed to make weight for the contest.
