[Middleweight Superfight] Park Ilcheol VS. Yu Yeongwoo Team Max / 박일철 vs. 유영우

The crowd is about 60% capacity at the start of the first fight.  Wow, the undercard fighters even get fire at the beginning of their entrances.  The first round is all Park, with a couple of throws and attempting to take Yu’s back the whole time.  Second round is more of the same.  Park struggles to get to his feet once he’s down, and Yu tries to take advantage anyway he can.  This one goes to the judges.

Park IlChul defeats Yu Yeongwoo by decision.

[Bantamweight Superfight] Kwak Myeongsik VS. Park Gwangsu / 곽명식 vs. 박광수

Park comes out motioning for Kwak to come in, and he does.  Park tags him with the sharper combinations, and shows good work defending a td against the cage, but when Kwak does get him away from the cage and tries for a td, Park gives up his back and it’s only a matter of moments until Kwak forces him to tap..

Kwak MyeongSik defeats Park Gwangsu by submission (RNC tap out) 1st rd.

[Lightweight Superfight] Kim Hwigyu Team MAD VS. Lee Jonghwa Team Possee / 김휘규 vs. 이종화

Kim opens with a huge kick Kim wastes no time getting Lee against the cage and throwing knees at him.  Lee gets a nice trip, but Kim reverses it to side control and works his way to the back.   Lee defends the choke well and gets it back to standing halfway, and rocks Kim with a nice hook and right uppercut.  Kim goes for and gets a big double leg but Lee’s up again, a trip and he’s down, and Kim almost gets caught in an arm bar.  This fight is face-paced and exciting!  Kim’s working off his back at the end of the round, and Lee tries to find a way from standing to get back in.

Lee’s punches rock Kim, who knows the best place for him is on the ground.  With a another td, he gets Lee on his back and lands repeated punches and knees from every position.  At ten seconds to the end, Kim sinks a choke, but doesn’t finish.  Nice strategy by Kim and Lee has heavy hands and good defense.

Kim Hwigyu defeats Lee Jonghwa by decision.

[Featherweight Superfight] Jung Yeongsam Jiujitsu World VS. Jin Taeho Team Fight / 정영삼 vs. 진태호

Jin does a great job with his jab and his reach, but Jung figures it out and punishes Jin’s right leg with kicks.  Jung’s nice single leg puts Jin’s butt on the canvas, and Jin works his long legs getting guard.  That’s round one.  Nice, these guys really bang with each other!  Second round these guys are trading, but Jung’s inside now and Jin’s reach is no longer an advantage.  Jin gets a clinch and throws a couple of knees to Jung’s groin – not nice.  The resume quickly, and Jung gets a huge lift and throw, dumping Jin on his back.  Jin works in guard, stands out, and resumes in side control, looking to finish.  Jin is saved by the bell.

Jung Yeongsam defeats Jin Taeho by decision.

[Featherweight Superfight] Gil Yeongbok VS. Lee Jeongwon / 길영복 VS. 이정원

Gil simply dominates Lee with great strength, dragging I’m, throwing him and suplexing him many times.  Once it’s on the ground, Gil follows up with brutal knees.  On to round 2!  Straight away, Lee gets a yellow card for repeated grabbing of the cage.  Gil again dominates the round, wrestling Lee to the ground numerous times, a real powerhouse!

Gil Yeongbok defeats Lee Jeongwon by decision
