A Sol Kwon vs. Giovanni Diniz headlines ROAD FC – Korea 003: “Korea vs. Brazil”

Fresh off yesterday’s event, ROAD FC returns in less than a month.

South Korean-based ROAD FC plays host to Brazil for the promotions third installment of the ‘Nations Fight’ series.

The event is scheduled to take place at the Grand Hilton Seoul Convention Center in Seoul, South Korea on April 6th. And will be available to purchase on iPPV.

Headlining the card will see Lightweights lock horns, as the hard-hitting A Sol Kwon returns against Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt Giovanni Diniz, who makes his promotional debut.

A Sol Kwon (18-8) a staple for Korean MMA has been involved in the sport for almost a decade. The 27-year-old has made his rounds competing in some of Asia’s top promotions, which include DEEP, ONE FC, Legend FC, Sengoku, Spirit MC and HEAT.

The Korean Top Team product stepped under the bright lights of ROAD FC late last year, where he fell victim to the recent surge of Japan’s Koji Nakamura on his debut.

Since then, Kwon bounced back at the turn of the year to snap back-to-back losses with a win over Mostafa Abdollahi, when the heavy handed Korean pulled off the third Submission of his professional career.

ROAD FC – KOREA 003 “Korea versus Brazil”

The next event will be ROAD FC – KOREA 003 on 6 April, 2014 at the Grand Hilton Convention Centre in Seoul. Headlining the event will be top Korean striker Kwon A-Sol against WOCS Lightweight Champion Giovanni Diniz.

Giovanni Diniz (21-7) returns to Asian soil for a second time in his career, as he looks to shake off his last outing and get his hand raised to a victory this time round.

The 38-year-old, who trains out of one of Mixed Martial Arts best camps Nova Uniao comes into contest fresh from his last outing, where Diniz claimed the WOCS Lightweight title overcoming Fabiano de Melo. Prior to the match-up, Giovanni was stopped in quick succession in his native Brazil, that halted a 4-fight win streak.

Like his opponent, Giovanni aims to build on his latest win, while trying to establish himself against one of South Korea’s pioneers of the sport.

*As of now no other bouts have been announced.
