ROAD FC 32 QUICK RESULTS: AORIGELE MAKES FAST WORK OF BOB SAPP

China’s “Heavyweight Supernova” Aorigele may have put an abrupt stop to Bob Sapp’s comeback ambitions, with a convincing knockout in the first round of their headline fight at ROAD FC 32 in Changsha.

To their credit, both Sapp and Aorigele put the shenanigans of the past 24 hours on hold and went into the cage to fight. And fight they did.

Sapp came out hard against at his Chinese opponent in the opening seconds and drew an equal exchange from Aorigele, who managed to get the better of Sapp with a series of hard knocks which felled the 160kg American before referee Herb Dean was forced to step in.

In what was easily the stand out fight of the night, a hyper aggressive Kim Soo-Chul hurt China’s Jumabieke Tuerxun in the early seconds of the first round with a heavy body kick and went on to dominate the fight.

Jumabieke looked badly hurt after the first body blow and Kim continued to dominate, throwing knees, kicks and heavy blows.

The game plan for Japan’s Team Date seemed to misfire for both Nori Date in the co-main event and Hana Date, who both failed to engage their opponents and instead used a series of strange poses to counterstrike and defend.

In the co-main event Nori Date lost a decision to China’s Lin Heqin, while Hana Date also lost a decision to Korea’s Lee Ye-Ji.

In what was largely a successful night for Chinese fighters, Hou Zhenlin battered Korea’s Gwak Byeong-in repeatedly to end the fight in the first round.
