ROAD FC – Korea 1 adds Mostafa Abdollahi vs. A Sol Kwon

The ROAD FC – Korea 1 line-up is starting to grow now with the latest addition of a Lightweight fight.

ROAD FC’s latest international star, Mostafa Abdollahi (0-0), is set to meet A Sol Kwon (16-8) on the January show in South Korea. Officials confirmed the bout with Fight Sport Asia on Tuesday.

As previously reported, ‘ROAD FC – Korea’ is a new monthly initiative launched by ROAD Fighting Championship. This new venture will serve as a launching point for foreign fighters to get into ROAD FC.

ROAD FC Korea 1 takes place January 18th at the Grand Hilton Convention Centre in Seoul, South Korea. The event is set to be headlined by a Middleweight tussle pitting former UFC vet Riki Fukuda against Kim Hee-Seung. A LIVE stream is expected to be catered for this event although no official announcements have been made.

Kwon looks to rebound from back-to-back defeats following a six-fight win streak. One of South Korea’s first generation MMA exports, the knockout artist has, for years, entertained fans all over the world with his aggressive style and powerful punches. Having faced notables Eduard Folayang, TUF: China’s Ning Guang You and DEEP champ Daisuke Nakamura among others, Kwon wants a shot to redeem himself following a knockout loss he suffered at the hands of Koji Nakamura in his ROAD FC debut.

Abdollahi, meanwhile, is not a well-known commodity in Mixed Martial Arts, but is an acclaimed combatant in Muay Thai and Kickboxing. A former coach of the Iranian National Team, Abdollahi has garnered multiple belts in Thailand during his near-100 fights stand-up showcases around the globe. With the help of fellow striking extraordinaire Vuyisile Colossa and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu champ Alberto Mina, Abdollahi is set to take up the challenge that awaits him in the Mixed Martial Arts circles.
