TOP FC 6: Unbreakable Dream on April 5, 2015 at Seoul Olympic Park Hall sees four fighters vying for the inaugural Lightweight title. UFC vets Dongi Yang and Dennis Hallman face off in the main event.
This event will be headlined by former UFC middleweight Yang “The Ox” Dongi (11-3) and MMA pioneer Dennis “Superman” Hallman (53-16-2). “Superman” is taking this fight on two weeks notice and this main event will be contested at a catchweight of 90kg.
Also, the main card will feature the Lightweight Grand Prix Semifinals. The first contest will pit Kang Jung-Min (6-5-2) against Hwang Gyo-Pyung (7-3). Then, in the co-main event, Kim Dong-Hyun (11-6-3) will face Yoshikatsu Harada (13-12-2). The combatants that get their hands raised will move on to the Grand Prix Finals later this year to decide the first ever Lightweight Champion of TOP Fighting Championship.
Unfortunately, a bangfest of a fight in the featherweight division has been removed from the card between Kim “Big Mouse” Dong-Gyu and Han “The Dynamic Monkey” Seong-Hwa due to an injury to the hand of the latter. As a result, a heavyweight match, Lim Jun-Soo (6-7) versus Lee Hyung-Chul (0-0), has been bumped up from the prelims and will kick off the main card.
The event will be broadcast on IB Sports in Korea, and streamed via MonsterZym.
