Kurobe Mina said, “The belt is beautiful. I will put on a good fight tomorrow. I’m sure of winning. ROAD FC is a big competition and to be the first atomweight champion would be huge. I am honored, and I will definitely win the title. I don’t really have a strategy. I’ve prepared for her attacks and I will defeat her technically. And I don’t think my age is a disadvantage.”
Ham Seo-Hee said, “This belt is really cool. I hope Kurobe will only keep her Japanese belt [laughs]. Up until this moment I didn’t know how bad I wanted to win. I was about to finish my life in MMA when I got this opportunity. I know I’m persistent and I will win. Also, people have called me ‘Hamderlei Silva’, but I would like a new nickname. Please think of one for me.”
