1 Billion Won (~$840,000 USD)

Winner Takes All Tournament in 2016

6 January, 2016 – ROAD Fighting Championship is continuing its global expansion by setting in motion the first ever Winner Takes All 1 Billion Won Tournament (approximately $840,000 USD). 

ROAD FC closed out the first year of global expansion with an historic event in Shanghai, China that was attended by 14,000 fans and was the first time MMA was aired live on China’s state broadcaster CCTV, achieving an impressive 5th place in the time slot.  XIAOMI presents ROAD FC 027 in China saw the first round of the first ever Openweight Tournament kick off, in which Mighty Mo, Choi Hong-Man, Aorigele, and Myung Hyun-Man KOed their way into the semifinals.

ROAD FC has a proud history of tournaments which have created ROAD FC Champions, and the 1 Billion Won Tournament will be no different.  ROAD FC would like to have the best MMA fighters in the world participate in this landmark, high-stakes tournament.  While the specifics are still in planning mode, this will not be a Heavyweight tournament.  ROAD FC is looking towards the lighter divisions which are stacked with talent, seriously considering the Bantamweight or Lightweight division.  The ROAD FC 1 Billion Won Tournament is expected to take place in the second half of 2016.  

Xiaomi presents ROAD FC 028 – Riki Fukuda defends his Middleweight Title against Cha Jung Hwan

The next event, Xiaomi presents ROAD FC 028 will be held on 31 January at the Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul, South Korea.  The Main Event will be Middleweight Champion Riki Fukuda (23-7-0-1)  making his first title defense against Korea’s number one-ranked welterweight, Cha Jung-Hwan (11-6-3).

Riki Fukuda cut a clear path to the ROAD FC Middleweight Championship in 2014 and 2015.  The consummate UFC veteran dispatched all comers to end up on a 4-fight win streak of finishes.  Earning the championship belt meant earning a 6-figure paycheck as well, and fans can bet that Riki isn’t willing to relinquish either anytime soon.  His grinding aggression will surely be turned up a notch as he meets an unlikely – and tricky – first challenger in Cha Jung-Hwan.

Cha Jung-Hwan is one of Korea’s most notable fighters, with knockouts over such stellar opponents as Ryo Chonan and Igor Gracie.    His most recent win was a decision over the highly-respected Alexandre Barros, which set right back-to-back Draws with Andrews Nakahara and Luis Ramos.  Cha, who is the coach of ROAD FC Featherweight Champion Choi Mu-Gyeom, is a well-rounded, brutal and yet tactical fighter who brings an interesting twist to Fukuda’s tank gun attack.  

ROAD FC is the stage where legends shine, rookies thrill, and epic battles are waged that determine the future of MMA. From the pageantry of the grand entrance to the final crunch of the KO, ROAD FC showcases the very best of Mixed Martial Arts sports and entertainment. As we say in Korea, “Fighting!”
