ROAD FC 025: Official Results
ROAD FC 025 took place on 22 August, 2015 in Wonju, South Korea in front of a sold-out crowd at the Chiak Gymnasium. The matches ended in a mix of outcomes from Yuta Nezu's mere seconds head kick Knock Out of Park Hyung-Geun, to the Main Event Featherweight Superfight between ROAD FC Champions Choi Mu-Gyeom and Lee Yun-Jun that went a full three rounds of nonstop action.
Featherweight Champion Choi and Bantamweight Champion Lee debated the merits of their styles fiercely leading up to their showdown at ROAD FC 025. Putting pride on the line, they both proved why they are the Champions of their divisions by fully implementing their contrasting striking abilities. However, Lee was able to mix in much more of his takedowns and grappling which edged him the Unanimous Decision from the judges. This rare and unique Champions Superfight will forever be imbedded in ROAD FC history.
In the Co-Main event, Kim Soo-Chul and Marlon Sandro put on a technical and aggressive back-and-forth match. They traded take downs, yet neither fighter was content to hold position for points, which delighted the audience. The result was judged a Draw. Consummate veteran Sandro stated he was very happy to have put on an excellent fight, and hometown favorite Kim gained the perfect challenge in his young and impressive career.
Kim Nae-Chul proved to be too heavy in the ground and pound for UFC "TUF China" veteran Dong Xin. The fight went into the second round, but in just over a minute, Dong's defense abilities were sapped by Kim's punches, and the fight was stopped, giving Kim the TKO victory.
In a very quick and brutal affair, Kim Seok-Mo endured Turkish fighter Onur Teker's opening barrage, and then came alive to earn a spectacular victory with punches on the ground in just under two minutes of the first round.
Yuta Nezu only needed two strikes to underline Park Hyung-Geun's rookie status. The first punch Nezu threw crumpled Park to the canvas, and when he recovered, a head kick was waiting to finish him off. Shooto Pacific Rim Champion Nezu made an impressive statement in his ROAD FC debut.
Japan's Satomi Takano and rookie Park Jeong-Eun had the crowd on their feet from the opening bell. Park's punches absolutely rocked Takano, so the more experienced veteran took the fight into her grappling realm. The tactic earned Takano two of the judges' marks to give her the Decision, and she is now 2-0 in ROAD FC.
Kwon Min-Seok and China's Wu Ze opened up the Main Card in a breath-taking manner. Wu intended to get the fight to the ground quickly, and Kwon was happy to engage him there. However, when in the clinch, it was Kwon's deadly knees that spelled the end of the game for Wu, and added a TKO to Kwon's credit.
