Dean stated:

“I was very happy to be asked to referee by ROAD FC.  I’m looking forward to participating in this special event and I will do my best in the ROAD FC cage.”

 

ROAD FC is also pleased to have highly-acclaimed boxing and MMA announcer Jeff Houston join the production.  Houston’s professional and energetic announcing at ROAD FC 026 created a highly-charged atmosphere and dramatically punctuated the action.  He adds international prestige to ROAD FC events going forward into 2016.

Houston stated:

“I am very proud and honored to be a small part of ROAD FC 27. This event will be a complete global success with our largest worldwide audience in ROAD FC history watching what we do best. The fights are exciting from beginning to end, the event production sends the MMA fans into sensory overload, the ROAD FC staff embodies the epitome of professionalism, I just can’t say enough good things! ROAD FC is the standard bearer for professional MMA organizations.”

 

Also at ROAD FC 027 in China, new Road Girl Lim Ji-Woo will make her round girl debut.  Lim won the ROAD FC Road Girl search which was watched live by millions on Afreeca TV, out of eight finalists who were whittled down from 150 applicants.  The judges chose her because of her multi-dimensional character; she is not only beautiful, but she possesses depth, innocent charm, and has the ability to sell the action of ROAD FC events.
