For immediate release:

 

January 27, 2017 – ROAD Fighting Championship is proud to announce the schedule of the regional qualifiers for the $1 Million Lightweight Tournament “Road to A-Sol”.

 

The ROAD FC $1 Million Lightweight Tournament will be the biggest project of 2017. The official name is “Road to A-Sol”, and as the name suggests, the finalist of the Tournament will face ROAD FC Lightweight Champion Kwon A-Sol for the million and the belt. The Challenger's Showdown with Kwon will simultaneously give the finalist great wealth and high honor.

 

Participants start by going through regional trials to become seeded in the 16-man tournament. The regional qualifiers consist of Trials in China, Japan, Russia, and Southeast Asia. A single loss will eliminate any participant, and a win will advance them to the next level.

 

First, the China Trials began last November of 2016 and four of the eight fighters progressed to the finals. The final round of the China Trials will be held on April 15, 2017 in Seoul, South Korea.

 

The Southeast Asia Trials are taking place on January 28 in Manila. The URCC is hosting the competition which includes three fighters from the Philippines and one from India by way of Singapore. It is a 4-man single night tournament with the final winner moving into the 16-man Tournament.

 

The International Trials for both Korean and worldwide fighters will begin with Group A in Seoul, South Korea starting on February 11, 2017 at Xiaomi ROAD FC 036. There are 14 participants in 7 matches, and the 7 winners will be seeded in the 16-man Tournament. Group B will be held on April 15 with 4 fighters in 2 matches, and those winners will also proceed to the 16-man Tournament.

 

The Russia Trials are on February 25, and will take place in Russian MMA Federation-accredited MFP. Like the Southeast Asia Trials, this will be a single night tournament of 4 men, and only one final winner will be seeded in the 16-man tournament.

 

Finally, the Japan Trials are scheduled to be held on March 20. Japan's DEEP will be the host of the single night tournament, in which four well-known Japanese fighters are set to compete to be the only one seeded in the 16-man Tournament.

 

To sum up the regional qualifying seeds: China – 2, Southeast Asia – 1, Korea and international – 9, Russia – 1, and Japan – 1 for a total of 14 participants. The remaining two spots will be announced at a later date.
