ROAD FC 016 in Gumi, Miranda versus Lee
Bruno Miranda (6-1) is a young and exciting fighter from the Carlson Gracie Team in Brazil. He first joined us for ROAD FC – KOREA 3: Korea versus Brazil where he stunningly knocked out Kim Won-Gi. Miranda is ready to face an even stiffer challenge in Lee to prove he is a true prospect.
Lee Kwang-Hee (6-3-1) is one of the heroes of early Korean MMA. In Spirit MC, he knocked out Kwon A-Sol (twice) and soccer kicked Kang Kyung-Ho to win the Spirit MC Lightweight Championship. After fighting in Sengoku, Gladiator, and DEEP in Japan, Lee finally returns to Korea and will assuredly put on another thrilling performance like those which gave him the name “Crazy”.
As previously announced, the Main Event will be the Flyweight Championship between two of Korea’s most outstanding young prospects, Jo “Drunken Monkey” Nam-Jin and Song “Running Man” Min-Jong.
Also on the Main Card, PRIDE veteran and Gold Medal Judoka Yoon Dong-Sik will face international Japanese superstar Riki Fukuda. The remaining Main Card matches and the card for Young Guns 015 will be announced shortly.
