    Tyrone Henderson's first fight since pulling off this sub

    He's fighting another guy from Apgujeong (formerly Team ONE) so should be a good one.

    Also ROAD's site is now available in English, Chinese, and Japanese

    Cool. Sloppy but entertaing for a few minutes. Hopefully that's all it lasts, though. Choi can take a punch.

    Yeah I think you're right. There was a stretch where all of Struve's opponents were doing big damage to him before getting finished and Stojnic was one of them.

    Damn that sucks, that was the 2nd fight I wanted to see most on that card :icon_conf

    Sucks for Dennis...

    Indeed, like I said on first page "It was crazy, Struve was getting smashed and got a badass come-back victory. But he took a lot of damage in this fight... "

    That was the kind of fight that took several years of fighting out of you, and it was an early one.
    I honestly thought he would retire after Hunt broke his jaw.

    Struve has crazy height/reach, but unlike Semmy Schilt he doesn't know how to use it best.

    Hopefully he doesn't suffer from brain damage later on.

    Anyway, anyone knows why Yoon Dong-Sik isn't on this card?
    A big ROAD FC card in Korea without the original Dongbar feels weird, guess he needed some time after that fight with Daiju "Spider Killa" Takase in Japan...

    I'm still butthurt over the Paulo Filho fight that got scraped last minute, that would be a cool fight to make now. Or not, considering all the health trouble he has.
    I just looked it up, didn't think it was that bad...

    If you were truly a fan you wouldn't be happy to see this man step in a cage, or a ring anymore.

    Amazing, I love Choi Mu Bae and Mighty Mo is always fun to watch.

    I remember before Choi's fight with Sergei, he was hyped as a great prospect and had quite a big fanbase, that dismantled after he himself got dismantled by the Russian...

    Great match-up, won't miss this one for sure.

    Yeah for a while I honestly thought in a few years Struve would be one of the best HWs in the world but now I'm kind of worried about all the early damage he's taken. He still hasn't fully learned how to use that reach either so who knows.

    How is Mo sloppy? He has great technique.

    It will be garbage because Bae is terrible but Mo should KO him with ease.

    How is Choi "garbage"? :icon_conf

    I love Mo, but he has zero ground game and it should be a easy fight for Bae once it hits the ground, and considering Choi is an elite wrestler it shouldn't take long.

    Mo's only chance is to hit Bae with a big punch right at the beginning...

    It's cool seeing more heavyweight fights being made in these Asian based promotions.

    The Bae of 11 years ago maybe I mean his takedowns have looked pretty terrible in his last few even though he won easily. But ya Mo for sure has nothing on the ground.

    I really cant believe how old both of these guys are now. Seems crazy.

    ROAD FC 26
    October 9, 2015
    Jangchung Gymnasium
    Seoul, South Korea

    Flyweight Title Unification Match
    Jo Nam-Jin vs Song Min-Jong

    Heavyweight Match
    Mighty Mo vs Choi Mu-Bae

    Lightweight Match
    Park Won-Sik vs Shinji Sasaki

    Today the promotion announced that Park “Parky” Won-Sik was signed to ROAD FC and will make his debut against Shinji Sasaki. This will be Parky’s second fight since coming back from a debilitating neck injury that was exacerbated by his last fight in DEEP and left him to announce his retirement at the young age of 26. Parky had surgery, went through a year of rehab, opened his own branch gym of Team MAD, and is now back in the swing of things since his tune-up win in IGF earlier this year.

    Hopefully Parky's injuries have finally healed up and he returns to form. Sasaki always puts on fun fights, really liking the way this card is coming together.

    You really haven't seen any of Mo's recent matches. He's improves significantly on the mat.

    I like it, wish Mighty Mo would have stuck around Bellator.

    This is either bad sarcasm or you are it some fantasy land.
