Riki Fukuda will meet Jeon Uh-Jin for the vacant ROAD FC Middleweight title at ROAD FC 24 in Japan. The event takes place in Tokyo, Fukuda’s home turf.

We spoke with Fukuda a few days before the match about his feelings on fighting in Japan, the “nation vs nation” sporting appeal of the event, and how he sees his hand being raised before the final bell sounds.
