Xiaomi ROAD FC 038 update: Nam Yui-Chul faces late-notice Tom Santos, Mike Bronzoulis out of match

April 12, 2017 – ROAD Fighting Championship announces a replacement fighter for former ROAD FC Champion Nam Yui-Chul in his International Trials bout at Xiaomi ROAD FC 038 on April 15, 2017 at the Jangchung Arena in Seoul, South Korea.

As previously announced, Nam Yui-Chul (18-6-1, Sanae Nam MMA) was set to return to fighting in Korea with his trials match for the ROAD FC $1 Million Lightweight Tournament against Legacy Champion Mike Bronzoulis (18-9-1, Revolution). Unfortunately, a personal matter has prevented Bronzoulis from arriving in time for the event.

The short notice replacement will be Tom Santos (8-3, Brazilian Thai). He has a Muay Thai and kickboxing record of 10-2 in Brazil and Japan. In Brazil, Santos is the MMA Dragon Fight Champion, and in his new home of Japan he is the kickboxing S-Battle Champion. Santos has a very strong and exciting Muay Thai style and a good grappling base.

There are two other matches in the International Trials on Xiaomi ROAD FC 038: ROAD FC fan favorites Bruno Miranda and Nandin-Erdene will face each other in a striker’s dream match up, and former M-1 and BAMMA champ Mansour Barnaoui takes on surging Ki Won-Bin in a fight for the quickest KO.
