Openweight Tournament Semifinals
The next round of the Openweight tournament which begun at ROAD FC 027 in China will be the Semifinals. Choi Hong-Man will face Aorigele and Mighty Mo will face Myung Hyun-Man. Three of the four fighters were available and gave their thoughts on the tournament.
Choi Hong-Man stated:
“I miss looking into my opponent’s eyes today. When Aorigele looked at Kim Jae-Hoon before their match, he seemed like he was a really bad guy. I’m just joking!”
“Aorigele kept punching after the finish, but next time, it will be the opposite, I won’t stop.”
Mighty Mo stated:
“I’m fighting for my family. Most people have regular jobs, this is mine, I’m fighting for my kids. Whoever’s in my way, get ready. I’ve got power and speed, and I’m going to show that, I’m going to show you that because it’s why my name is Mighty Mo.”
Myung Hyun-Man stated:
“Hey, I have family also! Well… I’m not married yet, but if I get married I’ll need money too!”
“I have fought so many times, I had a very hard life before I joined Road FC. Thank you for the opportunity. Mighty Mo is a very big idol to me, but I will KO him in the first round.”
ROAD FC is the stage where legends shine, rookies thrill, and epic battles are waged that determine the future of MMA. From the pageantry of the grand entrance to the final crunch of the KO, ROAD FC showcases the very best of Mixed Martial Arts sports and entertainment. As we say in Korea, “Fighting!”
