According to Korean media, Revolution 2 set for this Friday, August 15, 2014 in South Korea, has been postponed to September 12th.


One week before Revolution 2, the promotion was silent on the full card, therefore doubts about whether the show would even take place began to circulate.  On top of that, main event fighter Korean MMA legend Hong-Man Choi wasn’t found to be training in any MMA gym, according to a coach whom Korean MMA news site MFight interviewed.

Meanwhile, Choi was reported by Money Today as having been busy in shooting as the lead character in a new delivery app.  Nothing was mentioned about his upcoming bout.

K-1 female standout Lim Su-Jeong was also signed and slated to make her MMA debut on the event.

Another high-profile individual was booked and promoted for the event, Korean pop idol Kim Tae-Hun of the singing group TE:A. The group’s Twitter account and Kim himself announced on August 7th that Kim was off the event because it was cancelled, and then apologized to fans.

MFight followed up with the promoter directly and was given a statement by Revolution CEO Jun Sang-Gil that the event was not cancelled, but was going to be postponed until September 12th – a mere month later. Apparently contracts are being looked at, but a concrete reason for the delay was not given.

This information was given less than a week out from Revolution’s date.  As the card hasn’t been released in full, we are unable to contact fighters directly to confirm if any of them would be able to stay in shape or willing to make a second weight cut so close to this week’s news.
