ROAD FC 22 Official Results
23 March, 2015 - ROAD FC 022 took place on 21 March in Seoul, South Korea at the newly refurbished Jangchung Gymnasium in front of a sold-out audience and broadcast live on SuperAction. Here are the Official Results.
ROAD FC Lightweight Champion Kwon A-Sol's first title defense against former rival "Krazy" Lee Kwang-Hee was an incredible striking battle just as fans wanted from the long time bitter rivals. After a feeling-out period, Kwon and Lee seemingly threw caution to the wind. Lee began his aggressive pressure striking, and Kwon countered with hard shots. Both fighters wobbled each other many times. The deciding factor was Kwon A-Sol's elbow strike to Lee Kwang-Hee's head that cause a cut which bled profusely. Several times the doctor had to stop the bleeding. In the third round the doctor ruled it could not be stemmed, and the bout was halted, with Kwon A-Sol remaining the ROAD FC Lightweight Champion.
Fukuda Riki and Lee Dool-Hee engaged in their rematch of a "No Contest" at ROAD FC 19 and this time Fukuda made sure not to go anywhere near Lee's unmentionable parts. Lee threw out some amazing kicks, but Fukuda turned the game into a close-contact one instead. Fukuda pressured Lee against the cage, threw short strikes and knees, and eventually finished him on the ground with pounding.
Park Jung-Kyo and Jeon Uh-Jin surprisingly went the distance in their battle of the strikers. Park's kicks were amazing, but in the end it was Jeon's massive takedowns that made the judges give him the Unanimous Decision victory.
Tamura Issei and Cho Young-Seung set the stadium on fire with a technical and fast-paced show of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in MMA. Tamura controlled the first round with takedowns, and even though Cho tried to submit him from the bottom position, Tamura kept the pressure on. But everything changed in the second. Tamura failed a shoot and Cho took his back, quickly getting a Rear Naked Choke and the submission from Tamura.
Shim Gun-Oh and Lucas Tani proved that heavyweights can grapple, too. Shim used his impressive wrestling to dominate Tani from top position. However, Tani lasted through the pounding, and got himself into a position from the bottom to get an Arm Bar that forced Shim to tap.
Kuwabara Kiyoshi came in overweight against Kim Seok-Mo and was penalized 1 point per round for it. So he came in throwing big overhand rights, one of which landed perfectly and put Kim out at just 17 seconds into the first round.
