For immediate release, July 4, 2017 - ROAD Fighting Championship announces that Choi Mu-Bae will face Jake Heun on Xiaomi ROAD FC 041on August 12, 2017 in Wonju, South Korea at the Wonju Gymnasium.


Choi Mu-Bae vs Jake Heun: 

“Heavy Tank of Busan” Choi Mu-Bae (12-6, Choi Mu-Bae Gym) is a decorated wrestler and one of the very first Korean mixed martial artists. In 2004 he began his career in the historic PRIDE FC where he fought five times. Choi has also seen action in K-1, Sengoku and Pancrase, and made his MMA comeback in ROAD FC in 2015. With wins over Soa Palelei, Gary Goodridge, and Dave Herman, Choi has always proven himself to be one of the toughest guys on the planet. Even after getting KOed by Mighty Mo, he asked for a rematch!

“The Honey Bear” Jake Heun (10-6, Tiger Muay Thai) had only one year of professional MMA under his belt when his career launched into the international broadcast spotlight. He was on TUF 17 as a middleweight and TUF 19 as a light heavyweight, then he earned a contract on WSOF where he fought for three years. Heun is known for not wanting to leave anything in the hands of the judges. His Muay Thai base is going to be an exciting display for ROAD FC fans.

Choi Mu-Bae versus Jake Heun is definitely a style-verus-style match up. However, with Choi's known KO power and Heun's grappling ability, literally anything could happen!
