Rafael Fiziev (4-0, Phuket Top Team) made an incredible debut performance at Xiaomi ROAD FC 039 on June 10, 2017 at the Jangchung Arena in Seoul, South Korea. As the final International Trials bout, he faced Kim Seung-Yeon who looked to have a sizable reach and height advantage. Fiziev tactfully went in and pulverized Kim’s legs with kicks, battered him with body punches, and finished him off with head shots. The Kyrgyzstani did not let the fight leave the first round, where he earned a TKO at 4:25.


Unfortunately, Fiziev suffered a hand injury in the bout and was immediately sent to hospital. He was treated at Injae University Seoul Paik Hospital and diagnosed with a broken bone in his hand which will require surgery. The length of recovery will be several months. Therefore, Fiziev will not be able to compete in the opening round of the $1 Million Tournament which is scheduled for July 15 on Xiaomi ROAD FC 040.


ROAD FC wishes Rafael Fiziev a speedy and complete recovery so that he may return to the cage and put on another amazing performance for the fans.
