Wonju is the hometown of ROAD FC. The last event held there was ROAD FC 029 in 2016, so this will be a long-anticipated return home.

Bruno Miranda vs Ki Won-Bin

Bruno Miranda (9-3, Tiger Muay Thai) has fought six times for ROAD FC since his debut in 2014. His active and brutal striking style coupled with his friendly nature has made him a fan favorite. After his loss to Shinji Sasaki in a contender's match, Miranda rebounded with a first round KO of striker Kim Seung-Yeon. But in his International Trials bout with fellow fan favorite Nandin-Erdene, Miranda was caught with huge punches in under a minute, dispelling his hope of being in the $1 Million Tournament.

Ki Won-Bin (5-4, Team Posse) shares many similarities on paper with his opponent, including six fights in ROAD FC since his debut in 2014, and a loss in his International Trials match for the $1 Million Tournament to Mansour Barnaoui. All of Ki's wins have come by way of knockout. He's an aggressive fighter who never wants the score to end up in the judges' hands.

Bruno Miranda versus Ki Won-Bin are strikers who have given their all in ROAD FC matches. They will be set for a Reserve Match for the $1 Million Tournament, so the winner just might get another chance in the most historic Lightweight tournament in MMA!
