MMA action started early Saturday for fans in the west, as South Korea’s ROAD FC was already in action with their 53rd show to date!
South Korea’s ROAD FC was in action Saturday, with $1 Million Dollar Tournament winner Mansour Barnoui taking on lightweight champion Kwon A-Sol in the main event. With the title on the line, the fight didn’t last long. Building on his strong showing in the tournament, Barnaoui took just under four minutes to seal the deal, finishing A-Sol by rear-naked choke.
In the co-main event, an openweight contest, Aorigele defeated Heo Jae-Hyeok under a minute into the first round via TKO. Jae-Hyeok took the fight on short notice, after Aorigele’s original opponent, Jerome Le Banner, was forced off the card due to injury.
