MIGHTY MO AND CHOI HONG-MAN ADVANCE TO ROAD FC OPENWEIGHT FINALS

Mighty Mo and Choi Hong-Man scored decisive victories at ROAD FC 30 over the weekend to send them into the final championship round of the Openweight Tournament.

Aorigele was the audible crowd favorite when he entered the cage against Choi Hong-Man and used the momentum and aggressively. Choi weathered the onslaught and with his back to the cage delivered a knee to the body that apparently spelled the beginning of the end for 140kg Aorigele. Choi finished him off with ground and pound to seal his spot in the Openweight Tournament final.

Mighty Mo threw everything he had at Myung Hyun-Man, who was incredibly calculating and avoided the damage. But Mo showed off his remarkable compliment of skills by taking down Myung, gaining side control, and delivering a brutal neck crank for the finish. Mo will face Choi in the Openweight Tournament final.

Yan Xiaonan delivered another impressive performance in her bout with Lim So-Hee. From taking Lim’s back standing in the opening stanza, to delivering a side kick and punches combo that made Lim wither, Yan had the fight from the word go. She earned yet another victory by TKO.

Albert Cheng received a huge uproar for Chinese support for his first return since TUF China. It was grappler versus striker as Albert doggedly hunted the single and Yuki Ishihara tried to hunt for his head. Albert’s work on the ground in the first and grinding side control with a near kimura in the second earned him the decision victory.

Yang Junkai earned a quick and surprising victory over massive striking veteran Oh Du-Suk when he knocked him down early and the referee waived off the fight.
