Xiaomi ROAD FC 033 set for 10 September in Hefei, China with Aorigele vs Myung Hyun-Man Openweight Tournament reserve match
20 July, 2016 – Xiaomi ROAD FC 033 will take place on 10 September, 2016 at the Hefei Olympic Sports Center in Hefei, Anhui, China. Openweight Tournament participants Aorigele and Myung Hyun-Man will face each other in a reserve match.
ROAD Fighting Championship's home city of Wonju, South Korea is an international “sister city” of Hefei, therefore ROAD FC is proud to have the Anhui and Hefei government backing for the event.
Xiaomi ROAD FC 033 in Hefei will mark the fourth Chinese city that has hosted a ROAD FC event since ROAD FC 027 in Shanghai in December of 2015. With a 3-year CCTV broadcast deal and a partnership with Hunan TV, the footprint of South Korea's first professional sporting event export is growing exponentially in the Chinese market. A record-breaking total of 40 million people watched on CCTV5 as Aorigele matched Bob Sapp in Hunan TV's headquarter city of Changsha on 2 July.
For Xiaomi ROAD FC 033, two of the participants in the first Openweight Tournament will return to face each other in a special reserve match. Aorigele, who lost to finalist Choi Hong-Man by an uppercut that left him KOed standing, will seek to maintain his recent fortune: a 39-second KO of massive Bob Sapp. Myung Hyun-Man, who went into the third brutal round with finalist Mighty Mo and was surprisingly finished by a submission, will return with a vengeance to show off his massive Muay Thai prowess.
With a combined weight in the hundreds of kilos, Aorigele and Myung Hyun-Man will thrill ROAD FC fans as the Openweight contenders clash in the reserve match at Xiaomi ROAD FC 033 in Hefei!
New Wave MMA ROAD FC is the stage where legends shine, rookies thrill, and epic battles are waged that determine the future of MMA. From the pageantry of the grand entrance to the final crunch of the KO, ROAD FC showcases the very best of Mixed Martial Arts sports and entertainment. As we say in Korea, "Fighting!"
