Chinese heavyweight sensation Aorigele has a new opponent for his openweight bout at ROAD FC 53 this Saturday.
Kickboxing legend Jerome Le Banner was set to make his debut in the ROAD FC cage in an MMA bout against Aorigele, but has dropped out with injury.
Stepping up on short notice is Heo Jae-Hyeok. Heo (1-1) won his debut with a knockout finish of Kim Jae-Hoon, but lost by the same way in his second outing against Shim Gun-Oh.
In taking up the gauntlet against Aorigele, Heo is proving that he intends to make the show go on, from singing his own walk out song to action for the fans inside of the cage.
ROAD FC 53 goes down on Jeju Island in South Korea. A lightweight title fight between champion Kwon A-Sol and $1 Million Tournament winner Mansour Barnaoui will be the main event.
Firefighter Fighter Shin Dong-Guk will rematch Tamotsu Hayashi, and with the heat between them, fans can expect the do-over to be fast and furious.
Park Hyun-Geun finally welcomes highly rated “Fearless Guys” competitor Yang Ji-Ho to ROAD FC, who trains under former ROAD FC Champion Lee Yun-Jun.
Two 90kg prospects Lim Dong-Hwan and Kim Tae-In will open up ROAD FC 53, and the strikers who open cards always deliver a good show – especially the heavyweights.
