ROAD FC 27 will get underway at the Shanghai Oriental Sports Center tonight, with a huge11-fight card featuring a mix of Chinese, Korean and US fighters.
The Korean promotion makes its Chinese debut tonight and just its second international event.
As previously announced, ROAD FC has overhauled the way it scores each fight, introducing an “Unlimited Points System” to deliver more exiting fights for the massive TV audience it is expected to see via a partnership with CCTV.
The main attraction of ROAD FC 27 is the openweight tournament quarterfinals. The tournament features eight fighters from three countries with a multitude of martial arts backgrounds. The quarterfinal round will consist of four bouts at the event.
The China card will be headlined with a rematch between American kickboxer “Mighty Mo” Siala-Mou Siliga and Pride veteran Choi Mu-Bae.
The two met at Road FC 26 in October where Mighty Mo knocked out Choi in in just 37 seconds of the first round.
The co-main event will see one of South Korea’s most popular fighters returns to the cage after a long hiatus. Hong-Man Choi takes on 19-year-old Chinese fighter Luo Quanhao.
The towering South Korean will have an astounding 10-inch height advantage against his younger foe.
Former UFC fighter Zhang Lipeng will make his Road FC debut after three wins under the Kunlun Fight banner.
Zhang will face 31-year-old South Korean Hong Young-Ki who is coming off a win over China Top Team fighter Nannan He.
