    TFC 14 main event is up now


    What a finish from Jae Woong Kim. I was pretty high on him before his military stint so it's great to see him look better than ever 2 fights into his return.

    Edit: never mind. Just checked the results. Saw he wasn't.

    He might have been in attendance or something since him, Jae Woong Kim, and Byung Hee Lim are from Extreme Combat, he didn't fight though.

    Full card and results

    Yea, I watched some of the first round on Cyborgs YouTube channel. Picture quality was too bad, plus one angle. Would appreciate it if u do find the video. Still like to watch it, even if not terribly exciting.

    Not sure, haven't heard anything about it other than Glover saying that he was told they were going to get paid in 2 weeks. I guess we will find out soon if they come through on that. Not a good sign though if they don't have the money on the day of the event.

    Most of the Battlefield FC prelims are up now

    Chengjie Wu had a cool setup and submission, really looks like his training with KZ and Team MAD paid off well. Hopefully he becomes an active fighter again

    I'm not sure where he's training now but he spent some time there the last few years at KZ's gym and Team MAD (the Dong Hyun Kims, Kyung Ho Kang, Doo Ho Choi, Hamderlei, and many others).

    Angel's Fighting is bringing in another Legend FC vet, this time it's Hungry Hae Jun Yang. He's fighting Brandon Ropati who is a training partner of Mark Hunt and holds a win over Sam Alvey.

    Myung Ho Bae will fight former HEAT champ Kenta Takagi

    Wow, Hungry Yang.

    Nice. I hope this one ends up on a stream.
    I follow the one girl who had kickboxing matches for their last two events, Jung Hwa Kim, on IG. From the looks of it, she won't be on this next event. Vacationing in Boracay right now. I don't think she takes the fighting seriously, mainly a fitness competitor. She was doing okay the last time, but every time she start brawling she got lit up. Should have stuck to using her jab to keep distance.

    So I've been watching the last few Road shows, and I'd like to ask you guy's opinions of the Road English language commentators. The native English speaker (Young Kim?) I guess is was a tv personality. He reminds me of Goldbergwhen he first started. He lacks the knowledge, but he seems to enjoy the sport and is trying to learn. The play by play guy (Yeon Jun?) Speaks several languages, and you can tell he has the knowledge of both the sport and the local scene, but he's not truly fluent, which i feel hurts his explanations.

    I feel they make a good team, but much like Smith and Grande of Bellator infamy, they need to learn how to build the energy and excitement. If you listen to the Korean language commentary, you may not understand anything outside of the Konglish words, but you can't help but be excited about what's going on. If the English commentators adopted 1/10 of that energy, they could be good.

    What say you, KMMA followers?

    Xiaomi ROAD FC 040 XX: Ham Seo-Hee returns to Korea for the ROAD FC Women's Atomweight Championship

    ROAD Fighting Championship announces that the second all-female MMA card Xiaomi ROAD FC 040 XX will take place on June 11, 2017 in the Grand Hilton Convention Centre in Seoul, South Korea.

    yeah, i think the lack of energy is a big problem. the insight you get from the english commentary is good, but the lack of excitement in the commentary makes it a lot harder to enjoy the fights, and i'd rather listen to the korean commentary, frankly.
