Xiaomi ROAD FC 036 Update: Chun Sun-Yoo takes on Yoshiko in the pro wrestler’s MMA debut

Seoul, South Korea (Tue, January 24, 2017) – ROAD Fighting Championship announces that notorious Japanese female professional wrestler Yoshiko will face Chun Sun-Yoo for her MMA debut at Xiaomi ROAD FC 036 on February 11, 2017 at the Jangchung Arena in Seoul, South Korea.

Hirano Yoshiko (debut, SEAdLINNNG), started her pro wrestling career at only 17 years of age. She was awarded as a rookie and for her outstanding performances, as well as winning numerous Championships. But when Yoshiko beat an opponent so badly that she needed surgery which ultimately ended her pro wrestling career, Yoshiko’s villain persona in the ring tragically came true to life. Now the notorious Yoshiko will turn her aggressive tendencies to MMA.

Chun Sun-Yoo (0-1, Team Fighter) started training in MMA 2 years ago and competed in the ROAD FC amateur Central League in 2015. Her MMA debut came in 2016 in Hong Kong’s IMPI, an event run by former ROAD FC standout Vuyisile Colossa. Chun’s debut was a harsh one as she suffered a TKO to a more experienced striker, Ramona Pascual. The loss has not deterred her from pursuing her passion and her next step is at home in the ROAD FC cage. While Chun isn’t packing the heft that Yoshiko is, her 171cm is enough to be imposing.

Chun stated,

“(Yoshiko) beat up a defenseless opponent. Pro wrestling is definitely not MMA. They are not the same. I’m not defenseless, I’m prepared. I’m going to prove that she’s not invincible.”
