ROAD FC 014 line-up set with eleven fights

The fight card for ROAD FC 014 is now complete.

The event is set to go down on February 9th at the Seoul Olympic Hall in Seoul, South Korea, with the main card streaming LIVE online at http://www.ustream.tv/roadfc for a price of USD $9.99.

Previously announced match-ups for the main card included Kume Takasuke (15-3-4) vs. Eduardo Simoes (7-2-1, 1 NC) at 155-lbs, Jo Nam-Jin (7-6) vs. Yamagami Mikihito (10-2) at Flyweight, a Light Heavyweight tilt pitting Kim Nae-Chul (2-3) against Noji Ryuta (18-7) and Soo Chul Kim (7-5) vs. Motonobu Tezuka (20-7-4) at 135-lbs.

Headlining the ROAD FC 014 running order, of course, is the conclusion of the Featherweight Championship tourney final, between Bae Yong Kwon (9-3) and Choi Mu Gyeom (4-3).

Now, a Lightweight bill pitting Yoon Hyun-Bin (0-0) against Takaya Tsukuda (0-0-1) joins the main card line-up.

Officials confirmed the final set of contests with Fight Sport Asia on Monday.

Yoon, a training partner of popular South Korean fighter Doo Won Seo, makes his professional Mixed Martial Arts debut. The promotion announced his signing late last year and that was generally well received by the South Korean public, given his vast reputation of being a well known and popular comedian in the country. He’ll be looking to make the most of his three-year MMA training come fight night.

His opponent, Takaya, is also a new face to MMA faithfuls. He made his pro MMA debut in a Shooto event in March last year, earning a Majority Draw against Junya Taneichi.

Both fighters are relatively inexperienced so it will be hard to call a winner in this one.

Before these intriguing main card fights, the preliminary fights from ROAD FC’s customary Young Guns series will feature the next wave of outstanding young korean MMA fighters, all looking to make their mark in the cage and on their opponents.
