 Xiaomi ROAD FC 036: Flyweight match Nakahara Taiyo vs Moon Jea-Hoon

 

For immediate release:

26 December, 2016 – ROAD Fighting Championship announces a flyweight match: Nakahara Taiyo versus Moon Jea Hoon for Xiaomi ROAD FC 036 on February 11, 2017 at the Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul, South Korea.

Nakahara Taiyo (14-8, Wayjutsu Keishukai GODS) is one of Japan's best bantamweights who is dropping to the flyweight division. The Sengoku Tournament winner has only lost twice in almost 10 years with the last being his first fight in ROAD FC to Kim Soo-Chul. He has notable wins over Marcos Vinicius, Jo Nam-Jin, and Shintaro Ishiwatari. Early in his career, Nakahara faced the world's up and comers in K-1 and Valkyrie such as Rani Yahya, Ivan Menjivar, Mike Brown, and Hideo Tokoro.

Moon Jea-Hoon (9-8, Octagon Multi Gym) is a mainstay in ROAD FC all the way from the second event in 2011. He's faced the top in the bantamweight division and has wins over Kim Soo-Chul, Sato Shoko, and Yuta Nezu. Moon's final fight of 2016 against Kim Min-Woo earned the pair ROAD FC's Best Fight of the Year award for their amazing 3-round war at ROAD FC 029.

Nakahara and Moon will both drop to flyweight for the first time, and the grappler versus striker match sets an exciting outlook for the next powerhouse in the division.
