ROAD Fighting Championship launches a new monthly league, starts January 2014

Starting January 18th, 2014, fans of South Korea-based ROAD Fighting Championship will be treated with more Mixed Martial Arts action courtesy of a new monthly venture, titled “ROAD FC – Korea”.

The new initiative will see ROAD FC showcase events on a monthly basis, that will be held in Seoul, South Korea. This league is set to serve as a platform and launching point for foreign fighters to get into the promotion.

ROAD FC will be hosting the events at the Grand Hilton Convention Centre, a venue that’s been defined as the “birthplace of ROAD FC’s numbered series”.

In this calendar year alone, the organization placed an equal emphasis on featuring foreign fighters to local South Korean fans, adding the likes of UFC vets Issei Tamura & Luis Ramos, former DREAM champ Joachim Hansen and PRIDE staple Theirry Sokoudjou among many others to its roster.

ROAD FC also laid down plans to head to Japan in 2014, once again underlining its intentions to be a dominant force in the Asian MMA scene.

And after securing a recent partnership with CJ E&M, South Korea’s largest media conglomerate, expansions on an international scale are on the horizon.

“ROAD FC – KOREA” events will be held at the Grand Hilton Convention Centre, the birthplace of the ROAD FC numbered series. Originally it was planned to be held in a bespoke arena which ROAD FC announced the building of earlier this year, but the larger venue was selected due to the growing demand of MMA in Korea, and the increasing production value and expanding broadcast. “ROAD FC – KOREA” events will be broadcast live on Super Action in Korea and streamed Pay Per View internationally.

    I tend not to create many comments, however I browsed a bunch of responses on ROAD Fighting Championship launches a
    new monthly league, starts January 2014 | FSA – FightSport Asia.
    I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright.
    Is it just me or does it look like like a few of these comments appear as if they are left by brain dead visitors?
    :-P And, if you are posting at additional places, I would like to follow you.
    Would you list of every one of all your social community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
