March 6, 2017 – ROAD Fighting Championship announces the first match for Group B of the International Trials for the $1 Million Tournament: Bruno Miranda versus Nandin-Erdene. The match will take place at Xiaomi ROAD FC 038 on April 15, 2017 in the Jangchung Arena in Seoul, South Korea.
International Trials Group B
Bruno Miranda (9-2, Tiger Muay Thai) is a Muay Thai stylist who came back from his first loss in ROAD FC in a title contender’s bout to finish Kim Seung-Yeon in devastating style. With knockouts over Kim Wong-Gi and Lee Kwang-Hee, and a submission of Jung Doo-Jae, Miranda has put himself at the top of the lightweight division.
Nandin-Erdene Munguntsooj (5-2, Team Fighter) is a fan favorite striker who has seen a phenomenal uptick in his MMA career. He is undefeated in his last three fights, starting with a decision over China’s standout Bao Yincang and ending with his stunning first round one minute KO of veteran Park Won-Sik.
This match has punches written all over it. Even though their bout will be an important Trials match to get into the $1 Million Tournament, Miranda and Nandin-Erdene will give the fans a true taste of what it means to be a “finisher”.
As previously announced, former ROAD FC Lightweight Champion Nam Yui-Chul will return to fighting in his home of Korea when he joins the International Trials on Xiaomi ROAD FC 038. His opponent will be announced soon.
Xiaomi ROAD FC 038
Kuwabara Kiyoshi (10-8, Team Samurai) and Kim Dae-Sung (32, Gwangju Team Crows) will face each other in a middleweight match up. Kuwabara stunned the crowd when he took a last minute stand-in fight against ROAD FC Lightweight Champion Kwon A-Sol and knocked him out in 18 seconds. Kim also impressed with his recent come-from-behind victory when he took a drubbing from China national strongman champ Zhang Jianjun and finished him with a choke.
As previously announced to headline Xiaomi ROAD FC 038, two of Asia’s best bantamweights will face each other for the ROAD FC Bantamweight title. Korean #1 ranked phenom Kim Soo-Chul and #2 ranked ultra prospect Kim Min-Woo will face each other for the vacant belt.
Also on Xiaomi ROAD FC 038, the China Trials Finals will take place which will see two winners from a field of eight fighters finally seeded in the 16-man opening round of the $1 Million Tournament.
