360GAME ROAD FC 026: Full preliminary card now open, Young Guns 25
360GAME presents ROAD FC 026: 9 October, 2015 at the Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul, South Korea
The Young Guns 25 preliminary card is now open
14 September, 2015 - 360 GAME presents ROAD FC 026 will take place in Seoul, South Korea at the Jangchung Gymnasium on Hangeul Day, 9 October, 2015. The Unification of the Flyweight title between Jo Nam-Jin and Song Min-Jong will be the Main Event.
In the Main Event, outstanding grappler Tyrone Henderson (29, SSABI MMA) will face Brazilian jiujitsu Black Belt Seok Sang-Jun (32, Apgujeong Gym). Henderson has made impressive performances with his last win being a shoulder lock submission of Hong Young-Ki at ROAD FC 021. Seok just made his MMA debut last year with a rapid armlock finish of much more experienced Takashi Matsuoka.
This will be a grappling showdown with both talented fighters working their way to the Main Card!
The Co-Main Event is Yun Cheol (38, TEAM POMA) versus Karim Bouraarassi (32, TATSUJIN DOJO). This is the second time Bouraarassi is facing a coach, as he made a highlight reel KO of Lee Chang-Seob in his debut. Yun, who is the coach of ROAD FC Commentator and fighter Kim Dae-Hwan, comes from a boxing and wrestling background. These strikers will certainly seek to finish one another!
Two young and promising kick boxers will face each other in a sharp stand up battle, Choi Mu Song (20, CHEONMU GWAN) and Jang Dae-Young (20, VON JIUJITSU). With similar records and just starting out in their careers, this match will show the strength of the new Korean fighters.
Kiyoshi Kuwabara (33, TEAM SAMURAI) returns to ROAD FC to face La In-Jae (29, Apgujeong Gym). Kuwabara carved a name for himself with a 17 seconds KO of Kim Seok-Mo. La's debut in ROAD FC was a dominant decision over Kim Hyun-Min. Both players are making a resurgence in their MMA careers.
Yang Jae-Ung (24, TEAM POMA) and Toji Ueno (40, INFINITY) will be two fighters with a 16-year difference between them. Yang is only starting his career with 1-0, and Ueno wants to prove that he is still driven to be a winner.
Expect a fierce comeback battle when Jo In-Haeng (28, Busan Sparta Jim) and Jeong Kwang-Seok (28, Kwon A-Sol Gym) meet. Jo showed off his kickboxing in ROAD FC's amateur Into League but hasn't earned a professional win yet. Jeong has been training with ROAD FC Lightweight Champion Kwon A-Sol and is hungry to show he's tempered his power punching to get him back on the win side.
Rookies Jang Ik-Hwan (28, TEAM POSSE) and Hwang Do-Yoon (19, SSABI MMA). Jang has just two fights under his belt as he welcomes ROAD FC amateur Central League's Hwang to his first professional fight.
