ROAD FC Middleweight Champion Riki Fukuda faces Cha Jung-Hwan at ROAD FC 028

XIAOMI presents ROAD FC 028 will take place on 31 January, 2016

Middleweight Champion Riki Fukuda makes first title defense against Cha Jung-Hwan

22 December, 2015 – ROAD Fighting Championship will hold its first event in China this Saturday, 26 December in Shanghai.  The event is sponsored by XIAOMI, the world’s third largest smart phone manufacturer and will be broadcast live on China’s state-run station CCTV, live streamed in China on CNTV, and live streamed internationally on Epicentre.tv.

Following ROAD FC 027, the first event of 2016 will be ROAD FC 028 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.  Cha stated:

“I have wanted to make the transition to middleweight and I have wanted to face Riki Fukuda.  This is a great opportunity and I will be in top shape for this fight.”
