ROAD FC’s monthly league is back with a trio of matches featuring Brazilians against Koreans. WOSC Champ Giovanni Diniz, long considered among the best Brazilian lightweights not signed to an international promotion, will take on Korea’s mouthy and heavy-handed Kwon A-Sol. Bruno Miranda is a hot prospect who at 23 has an open road in front of him. Kim Won-Gi has shown an exciting game in the cage and should make the match eventful – for someone’s head.
Also on the card, Ham Seo-Hee finally fights in Korea again, and this time with a stream you can actually watch live. The next opponent on her plate is the up-and-comer Shino Vanhoose, who now trains with Scott Jorgensen’s camp in the US and has been including lots of Thai training since her last MMA bout. All women’s MMA fans should be interested in this match.

17 March, 2014 – ROAD Fighting Championship announces the next KOREA league event will be held on April 6, 2014 at the Grand Hilton Convention Centre in Seoul, South Korea.
ROAD FC – KOREA 003 “Nations Fight – Korea versus Brazil” will be headlined by knockout artist Kwon A-Sol versus WOCS Champion Giovanni Diniz.
This event will also feature an exciting matchup between two of the top female fighters in MMA: DEEP JEWELS Champion Ham Seo-Hee will take on 18-year old hot prospect Shino Vanhoose.
At ROAD FC – KOREA 003, Brazilians will be featured as the invited representatives to face Korean fighters. There is a strong rivalry and camraderie between both countries at ROAD FC, as many top Brazilians have stepped in the cage before, such as Roan Carniero, Luis Ramos, and Andrews Nakahara. ROAD FC is very excited and honored to host WOCS Lightweight Champion Giovanni Diniz , as well as young Brazilian prospects Thiago “Manchinha” Silva and Bruno “Robusto” Miranda.
Giovanni Diniz is a grappling wizard from Nova Uniao, and has been consistently ranked as one of the best fighters on the Brazilian circuit. Diniz won the WOCS Lightweight belt in a very tough division among tough countrymen. He will face top Korean striker Kwon A-Sol who came back from a cage-rust shattering KO to redeem himself with a submission win over Iranian Muay Thai Champion Mostafa Abdollahi. This match will keep the anticipation high for a quick finish.
Thiago Luis Silva hails from Baixinho Team. He quickly finished his recent two fights in the first round, one by KO and one by heel hook. Silva is bringing a very tough and well rounded game to his Korean adversary. Moon Jae-Hoon steps up to the task with a stand up game that could be the deciding factor. Moon scratched out a decision win over Shoko Sato in the Bantamweight Tournament, then was KOed by eventual tournament finalist Lee Kil-Woo, so he is hungry to work back into contention.
Bruno Miranda went five straight wins in a row in the advent of his career with a mix of finishes and decisions. The Brazilian all-rounder represents the new wave of MMA fighters coming from Brazil. Miranda’s last outing broke his win streak for the first time, therefore he will be looking for a finish to redeem himself. Kim Won-Gi is an evolving fighter who engages quickly and fiercely, a tactic that delivers excitement but has earned him a series of losses. The impetus of the result in their recent outings will fire up both fighters in this match and make for non-stop action.
Korea’s premiere women’s professional MMA fighter Ham Seo-Hee finally joins ROAD FC after defending her title at DEEP JEWELS. The Team MAD prodigy is consistently world-ranked and has earned the honors by stopping all top contenders. Shino Vanhoose is a young phenom who is considered a future superstar. At just 16 years old, she made her pro MMA debut in PANCRASE, and now counts her opponents as the best in her division. This match has world ranking ramifications for both women.
