Xiaomi ROAD FC 039 injury update:
Aorigele's future progeny safe, Shim out for 3 months
For immediate release:
June 15, 2017 – ROAD Fighting Championship would like to present updates on the condition of several fighters who were injured at Xiaomi ROAD FC 039 on June 10, 2017.
In the co-main event openweight match, Aorigele (4-3-0-1, Xindu Martial Arts Club) was dealt an accidental kick to the groin by Myung Hyun-Man which ended the bout far too soon. Aorigele was immediately taken to Injae University Seoul Paik Hospital for treatment and observation. Fortunately, there was no lasting damage and he has been released with a clean bill of health.
The moment of the impact has since gone viral, unfortunately for the wrong reason for the young Chinese standout. While Aorigele was in hospital, Myung visited him and expressed his apologies and sorrow for the outcome of their highly anticipated match. ROAD FC will offer a rematch between Aorigele and Myung Hyun-Man later in the year.
In the first openweight match of the event, Shim Yoon-Jae (2-2-0-1, Kim Dae-Hwan MMA) was accidentally headbutted by Kim Chang-Hee. Shim was immediately taken to hospital and diagnosed with nasal and facial slight fractures. Fortunately, neither injury requires surgery. Shim's recovery will be three months.
As previously announced, Rafael Fiziev (4-0, Phuket Top Team) was injured in his bout, and was treated and diagnosed with a broken bone in his hand which will require surgery. The length of recovery could be up to six months. Therefore, Fiziev will not be able to compete in the opening round of the $1 Million Tournament which is scheduled for July 15 on Xiaomi ROAD FC 040. Former ROAD FC Lightweight Champion Nam Yui-Chul will return in his place.
ROAD FC would like to wish Aorigele, Shim, and Fiziev a speedy and complete recovery so that all may return to the cage and put on more amazing performances for the fans.
