Fresh from a first round TKO win over Chris Barnett at Road FC 38, Myung Hyun-Man (4-3) is returning to meet China’s National Sanda champion Aorigele (4-3) in an openweight match-up.
Aorigele “Heavyweight Supernova” trains out of the Xindu Martial Arts Club and is coming off the national games and back to back KOs over Yukuke Kawaguchi and Bob Sapp. At just 22-years-old, he’s already established himself as a fan favorite in and out of the cage.
Right at the opposite end of the scales is an interesting flyweight scrap that sees Moon Jea-Hoon face Asakura Kai.
Moon Jea-Hoon (9-9) is from a pure Taekwondo base before picking up grappling and transitioning to MMA. He has wins over former Shooto champ Nezu Yuta, Bantamweight contender Kim Min-Woo and UFC vet Marcos Vinicius.
Moon dropped to flyweight at ROAD FC 36 against Japanese standout Taiyo Nakahara, but he’s prepared to stay in the division and regain momentum.
Asakura Kai (8-0) is a karateka who holds the Outsiders 57kg title. He made his ROAD FC debut in 2016 by choking out Liu Xiaoyang, then at ROAD FC 36 he destroyed Alatengheili in seconds. Asakura is seen as one of the hottest prospects in the flyweight division today.
Moon versus Asakura is a striking match at its finest as Taekwondo takes on Karate.
As previously announced for ROAD FC 39, former UFC fighters and women’s MMA veteran Ham Seo-Hee will return to face DEEP champion Kurobe Mina for the promotion’s inaugural women’s atomweight title.
