Xiaomi ROAD FC 036 update: Rodrigo Caporal vs Park Dae-Sung set for International Trials for the $1 Million Lightweight Tournament “Road to A-Sol”

 

For immediate release:

January 24, 2017 – ROAD Fighting Championship announces the next match for the International Trials for the $1 Million Lightweight Tournament “Road to A-Sol”: Rodrigo Caporal versus Park Dae-Sung. It will take place at Xiaomi ROAD FC 036 on February 11, 2017 at the Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul, South Korea.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu maestro Rodrigo Caporal (13-6, Espada MMA, Brazil) is an avid BJJ competitor alongside his MMA career. The RUFF Champion has Worlds gold medals to his credit, as well as being one of the most outstanding competitors based in Asia. Caporal competed in his first ROAD FC for the China Trials for the $1 Million Tournament. He lost by penalty for missed weight, but his dominant performance awarded him another shot. Caporal will be hungry for the chance to fight in front of his huge Korean student-base.

Park Dae-Seong (4-1-0-1, MOB, Korea) fits his “Crazy Dog” moniker very well. He developed through the ROAD FC amateur Into League. Park's first professional opponents were much more experienced, but once he caught his timing, he went on an impressive 4-fight win streak, including his recent split decision over fellow superrookie Kim Kyung-Pyo in a fight of the year contender. Park has methodically put in the work to become a well-rounded and dangerous fighter with a huge gas tank.

Caporal versus Kim is wizened veteran versus super rookie – both with a local fan bas in house to support them – is going to be a hot battle.
