Video: ROAD FC 014 main card highlights

ROAD Fighting Championship’s fourteenth instalment took place this past weekend, February 9th, in front of a packed audience at the Seoul Olympic Hall in Seoul, South Korea. The main card streamed LIVE online at http://www.ustream.tv/roadfc for a price of USD $9.99.

In the main event, the inaugural Featherweight Championship title strap was contested between tournament finalists Bae Yong Kwon and Choi Mu-Gyeom. A fourth stanza was needed after three tightly contested rounds from both combatants. It was Choi who rose to the occasion though, earning a tight Split Decision victory and the promotion’s inaugural 145-lbs gold.

Former Lightweight contender Takasuke Kume gave the hardest of welcomes to ROAD FC newcomer Eduardo Simoes, in the first all-foreign affair in ROAD FC.  Kume dominated all three rounds against the Brazilian Black Belt with a superior display of strength and positioning on the canvas, en route to a decisive Unanimous Decision victory.

Former ONE FC champ Soo Chul Kim made an astounding return to the ROAD FC banner, earning a TKO victory over UFC vet Motonobu Tezuka, while South Korean prodigy Jo Nam-Jin, scored a lopsided Unanimous Decision win over Shooto champ, Yamagami Mikihito.

In a special 155-lbs Lightweight super fight, well-known South Korean comedian Yoon Hyun-Bin made his professional MMA debut against Takaya Tsukuda of Japan. After eating several blows in the opening stages, Takaya stunned Yoon with a perfectly timed right hook that signaled lights out for his Japanese counterpart.
