Xiaomi ROAD FC 036 update: Shamil Zavurov versus Kim Won-Gi set for International Trials for the $1 Million Lightweight Tournament “Road to A-Sol”

January 11, 2017 – ROAD Fighting Championship announces the next match for Round 1 of the International Trials for the $1 Million Lightweight Tournament “Road to A-Sol”: Shamil Zavurov versus Kim Won-Gi. Round 1 will take place at Xiaomi ROAD FC 036 on February 11, 2017 at the Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul, South Korea.

Shamil Zavurov (30-5-1, Akhmat Fight Club) is a Russian stand out with a history back to his childhood of winning Sambo and Sanda fights before his transition to MMA. He is the Octagon Fighting Champion and former M-1 Champion. Well-known for his multi-fight rivalry with Yasubey Enomoto, Zavurov has a notable win over Rodrigo Caporal, and his cousin Khabib Nurmagomedov can often be seen in his corner.

Kim Won-Gi (7-6-1, MMA Story) comes from one of the hottest teams in Korea right now, MMA Story, that counts two ROAD FC Champions in its ranks: Middleweight Champ Cha Jung-Hwan, and 3-time defending Featherweight Champ Choi Mu-Gyeom. Kim is riding a two-fight win streak in Russian promotion MFP, so he’s already got a taste of what’s coming at him in the opening round of the Trials.

Shamil Zavurov and Kim Won-Gi are two experienced, well-rounded fighters who are not afraid to throw down, so expect a smashing finish!
