Xiaomi ROAD FC 038 main card finalized with Myung Hyun-Man vs Chris Barnett

March 21, 2017 – ROAD Fighting Championship opens the full main card for Xiaomi ROAD FC 038 on April 15, 2017 in the Jangchung Arena in Seoul, South Korea. Openweight strikers Myung Hyun-Man and Chris Barnett complete the line up.

Myung Hyun-Man (3-3, Team Gangnam/Apgujeong Gym) is a heavyweight Muay Thai standout of over 30 wins who transitioned to MMA in 2013. He KOed Liang Lingyu in the 2015 ROAD FC Openweight Tournament quarterfinals and met Mighty Mo in the semis. The fight nearly went the distance with a thrilling stand up display from both knockout artists, but Mo got the submission win on the canvas in the third. It was a repetition – if unpredictable – result when Myung met Cro Cop in RIZIN. Now he’s ready to redeem himself in the cage once more.

Chris “Huggy Bear” Barnett (15-3, Barnett Taekwondo Academy) is one of the toughest men to hit the Asian MMA scene in the last 3 years. In his US career he KOed Kenny Garner and Travis Wiuff amongst others his 90% knockout finish stats. Barnett’s only losses were to Eric Prindle, Oli Thompson, and a contentious split to Kirill Sidelnikov in RIZIN. Barnett is going to show Korea what a Taekwondo background can accomplish for a heavyweight fighter.

Co-main event Myung Hyun-Man versus Chris Barnett is going to add fireworks to an already stacked ROAD FC card!
