Please see the attached photos for your consideration and use.  The following are quotes from the XIAOMI presents ROAD FC 027 in China fighters.


Choi Hong-Man:


“My goal is to get back in the game, no matter the opponent. However, a lot of images of my opponent go through my mind when I'm training. Since my last fight, my weight has gone up a lot. My fans want to see a good fight out of me and I'm going to give them that.”


Myung Hyun-Man:


“I've just been training so that I can show a high level of skill when the time comes.”


Choi Mu-Bae:


“I was expecting to fight next in February but when I heard there was the Openweight Tournament I wanted to get right back in the game. Deep down inside, I feel I'm getting a little more comfortable with Mighty Mo (laughs). Life's biggest challenge is ahead.”


Hong Young-Ki:


“It has been an honor to participate in both of ROAD FC's overseas events, Japan and now China. My opponent is strong, but I will carry the flag of Taekwondo into battle. I'm always ready to fight, it doesn't matter who my opponent is. I also abide by this principle when I coach others. I will always try to represent Taekwondo. I'm interested in fighting many times to prove it, but right now my focus is on this day, I will be the hero.”


Nam Ye-Hyun:


“My father is also my coach. He told me “You are not an idol, you're a fighter, so the most important thing for you is fighting ability. And always be a modest fighter'. I will follow his advice.”
