27 July, 2014 - ROAD FC 016 delivered nonstop action to a sold-out arena, Jo Nam-Jin crowned the first ROAD FC Flyweight Champion
ROAD FC 016 Main Event Synopsis
On the Young Guns 15 undercard, Kim Dae-Sung opened the event by opening up Seol Bo-Kyung's face with sharp elbows and his aggression won the verdict on the judges' scorecards. Kim Kyu-Hwa also found the judges rule in his favor with his single leg take downs more controlling and damaging than Kim Jin-Min's high-flying throws.
Yoo Tae-Woo won with the first submission of the night as he threw Ryu Kyung-Gwan down and went for the Rear Naked Choke. Jo Young-Jun didn't follow this up with another finish, but he did outwork Jeon Chan-Hyun enough to win the decision.
Daiju Takase entertained the crowd with his Gangnam Style entrance before he faced very tough last-minute stand-in Whi Seung-Bae. They thrilled the crowd by trading kicks and heavy punches. It was Takase's stunning left hook to Whi's jaw that ended the fight in the first round.
