ROAD FC 030 Openweight Tournament Semifinal matches Choi Hong-Man versus Aorigele, Mighty Mo versus Myung Hyun-Man
ROAD Fighting Championship held its first event in China on 26 December in Shanghai and it was a massive success. Over 14,000 people attended ROAD FC 027 at the Oriental Sports Center, and the historic first live broadcast of MMA on China's state-run station CCTV5 was 5th in the national ratings, viewed by a staggering 35 million people.
During ROAD FC 027, the Quarterfinals of the Openweight tournament were held. Myung Hyun-Man TKOed Liang Lingyu in just 13 seconds. Mighty Mo and Choi Mu-Bae battled it out longer than their first meeting but Mo's heavy hands got him the TKO at 3:43 of the first round. Big men Aorigele and Kim Jae-Hun swung at each other with bad intentions, with Referee Herb Dean physically stopping the fight by pulling Aorigele of Kim's prone and battered body at just 24 seconds into the fight. Young up and comer Luo Quanhao landed shots on Hong Man-Choi, but once in the clinch, Choi showed off his massive power with short shots and knees, and Luo could not continue into the second round.
The Openweight Tournament Semifinals at ROAD FC 030 will be broadcast live on CCTV5. Choi Hong-Man versus Aorigele promises to be heigh versus width in a bout of staggering proportions - literally. Mighty Mo versus Myung Hyun-Man will see two incredibly devastating strikers face off in what should be a brutal display of hard-hitting action.
Before ROAD FC 030, watch out for the upcoming ROAD FC 029 on 12 March live from South Korea on Epicentre.tv.
