8 November, 2016 – ROAD Fighting Championship is excited to announce a third title match for Xiaomi ROAD FC 035 on 10 December at the Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul, South Korea.
ROAD FC Openweight Champion Mighty Mo will make his first title defense against Carlos Toyota.
Siala “Mighty Mo” Siliga (10-5, Millennia MMA) went from being K-1 Tournament Champion over ten years ago to winning the first ROAD FC Openweight Tournament in 2016. His capture of the belt was an historic rubber match with fellow finalist Choi Hong-Man, in which the two faced off for a third time and Mighty Mo earned the decisive KO victory. Heavy hands and indomitable spirit have made him a huge fan favorite as the ROAD FC Openweight Champion.
Carlos Toyota (7-8-1, Hard Combat) is a long time veteran of Japanese MMA for DEEP and Gladiator before earning back to back ROAD FC victories over Choi Hong-Man and Shim Gun-Oh. Toyota is a Brazilian jiu jitsu black belt, however all but one of his victories has come by way of knockout. He has wins over notables Daijiro Matsui and Daiju Takase.
Mighty Mo will be taking on an opponent in Toyota who has been putting in as much work as he has over the last two years. Both men have proved their heavy hand skills, so for Xiaomi ROAD FC 035, Mighty Mo’s defense of the Openweight title is sure to be a brutal display!
