The sixth fight will be a lightweight Kim Kyung-Pyo (5-0, MMA Story) versus Park Dae-Sung (3-1, Team MOB). Kim holds 3 KOs and 1 submission in an undefeated record since his pro debut last year.

The fifth fight is a featherweight match between Kim Se-Yeong (3-2, Team Gangnam) and Lee Chang-Ju (1-0, Ssabi MMA). Kim has been a sparring partner of ROAD Champs Kwon A-Sol and Lee Yun-Jun so he is very well-rounded. Lee was the ROAD FC Central League Rookie of the Year before his successful pro debut, as well as a champion kickboxer. They may not have main card names, but Kim and Lee will surprise with a very high-level performance.

Kang is an 18-year old with an undefeated record in the ROAD FC amateur Into League. 19-year old Wang impressed with a submission win in his ROAD FC debut this year. These young fighters represent the next generation of Korean and Chinese MMA, so watch this fight closely.

Kim started judo in high school, then kickboxing, and has a good deal of experience in MMA in Korea, Japan, and China.
