25 December, 2015 – Official weigh ins for ROAD Fighting Championship’s first event in China, XIAOMI presents ROAD FC 027 in Shanghai, took place on 25 December, 2015 in the China Hall of the Pudong Shangri-La. All 22 fighters made weight on the first try.

XIAOMI presents ROAD FC 027 will take place tomorrow, 26 December, at the Shanghai Oriental Sports Centre at 19:00 China Standard Time. This ground-breaking cross-cultural MMA endeavor will be broadcast live from 20:30 on China’s state run station CCTV 5.
Quotes from the fighters of XIAOMI presents ROAD FC 027 in China:
“I don’t have a particular strategy but I’ve been training really hard for this match. And I’ll show you what I’m capable of tomorrow.”
“I’m excited to be in the Openweight Tournament and to fight in ROAD FC in China. I think people here like my opponent better! He is a young guy with a good background and I’d like to see him show that against me. My tension is gone and I’ve been training really well. Actually, I’d like to end up in the final and fight Mighty Mo.”
“Merry Christmas! I don’t know if people know me in South Korea, but my opponent is a well-known Taekwono fighter. Tomorrow I’ll give you the chance to try and kick me.”
“I will work hard for the win.”
“I come into this match without the looks of my opponent. He thinks he’s scary because he looks like a Japanese yakuza. Kim Jae-Hun thinks he can come to China and retire me in the first round? This is mindless crap. His wrestling is weak, I’ll show him why Mongolian wrestling is famous.”
“The Openweight Tournament quarterfinals will go down with glory. This is going to be the most exciting match of ROAD FC 027. He should be scared of me. He’s not my equal, I’d like to slap him for thinking it. I don’t think this will be a long war, it will be a short slugfest. I’ve wrestled with weak opponents who are more fragile than him.”
“My opponent is 39 and a legend in MMA, I have a lot of respect for him. But I’m very hungry. I lost 15 kgs, it was a difficult process. I’m thankful to be in ROAD FC and I consider it to be global competition.”
“Minowaman is back. ROAD FC in China is a big reason to celebrate. Tomorrow we’ll fight hard. I will win.”
“Tomorrow both my opponent and I are going to put on a good fight.”
“I’m going into this match with all my heart; I’m willing to die for it.”
“I’ll do my best.”
“I’m going to work really hard for the win.”
“I’m going to make a big impact in China with my performance.”
“I represented Korea in wrestling in the 1990 Beijing Asian Games. I’m looking at this fight with Mighty Mo as if it’s the last fight of my life. There is so much meaning in this to me. It may not look like it but I’m in great condition and I’m ready to show it tomorrow.”
“I really prepared for this so I expect to show you my best tomorrow.”
“Tomorrow’s match won’t go to decision. One of us is going down, and it will be by a KO. This will be too much like a war so it has to be that way.”
“Tomorrow I’m going to win because I worked harder.”
“Tomorrow’s fight is going to be hard, so I hope everybody cheers for me.”
“I’ve put a lot of preparation in for this match. I’m looking to have a good fight inside the cage.”
“I’d like to thank ROAD FC for this big opportunity. I’m willing to give everything I have in the cage, because that’s what my father taught me.”
“I will bite down and show you my best in the cage.”
“I’m honored to participate in the first event in China. It was a lot of preparation. This will be my best fight. I’ll show you when I get in the cage.”
