2017 ROAD FC Awards Ceremony Winners

 2017 ROAD FC AWARDS CEREMONY WINNERS ROAD Fighting Championship's final event of the year, Xiaomi ROAD FC 045 XX, took place in Seoul, South Korea on December 23, 2017. Atomweight Champion Ham Seo-Hee retained her belt and her position as the world's top in the division by a fist round TKO over Jinh Yu Frey.   Tickets for the all-VIP event sold out in 1 day. Following it, the 2017 ROAD FC Awards Ceremony was held. It was the first time a year end awards ceremony had been held in conjunction with an event, and the first time to be aired live on television, on MBC Sports+. Incoming CEO Kim Dae-Hwan was formally introduced after Founder Jung Mun-Hong had stepped down from the position on November 29th. Here are the winners of this year's awards, as compiled by ROAD FC staff and voted upon by ROAD FC fans.  Hall Of Fame ROADMAN ROAD FC has become a leading mixed martial arts promotion in Asia. At the center of this development has been Jung Mun-Hong. He has made the impossible possible by investing both his money and personal time to the cause. In 2017, ROAD FC returned to China, expanded its broadcast, created a new reality television series “Fearless Guys” with MBC, and launched the first all-female MMA league in Korea. Mr. Jung also directed the company's community outreach programs through the “Love Sharing Project” which involved blood drives, charcoal for impoverished homes, and donation drives for pediatric cancer. For this reason, he has been presented with the first award in the Hall of Fame, ROADMAN, for his outstanding contributions to the company. A second ROADMAN award was presented to GNFOOD President Hong Kyung-Ho for his continual outstanding contributions to ROAD FC. GNFOODS, the parent company of Goobne Chicken, has been the most committed and long-standing sponsor of ROAD FC, and has activated partnerships that have increased ROAD FC visibility and community standing.   Teams of the Year: Team Poma and Team Strong Wolf Both teams are winners of this years; Team of the Year award, because both teams brought a great deal of action to the ROAD FC cage in 2017. Team Poma sent many seasoned competitors in 2017 including Min Kyung-Chul, Kim Woo-Jae and Cho Byung-Hwi, as well as fielding several new professional fighters and countless amateurs. Team Strong Wolf had a breakout year in 2017 with the success of many new fighters, including Park Jung-Eun, Lim Dong-Hwan, and Kim Yi-Sack.   Female Rookie of the Year: YoshikoNominees: Shim Yoo-Ri, Yoshiko, Kang Jin-Hee The Female Rookie of the Year is Yoshiko, who came fresh off a notorious professional wrestling career to make her MMA debut, which she did with an earth-shattering KO. Yoshiko competed three times under the ROAD FC banner in 2017 with a much improved performance in her rematch with Chun Sun-Yoo, and her first loss on the same night of the awards event. Therefore, it was an emotional acceptance by the young wrestler.   Male Rookie of the Year: Shin Dong-GukNominees: Rafael Fiziev, Hwang In-Su, Shin Dong-Guk Male Rookie of the Year saw three very distinct fighters earn the nomination, with Firefighter Shin Dong-Guk taking the win. Shin fought in the amateur leagues first, then made his pro debut at ROAD FC 038 with a 53 second KO. He followed up the performance with a 78 second KO in front of his hometown crowd at the Chungju World Martial Arts Festival event. Shin was not able to be at the awards ceremony as he was on call for a massive fire in the neighboring city of Jaechun.   KO of the Year: Myung Hyun-ManNominees: Amartuvshin Khuukhenkhuu, Myung Hyun-Man, Tom Santos There were quite a few contenders for KO of the year in 2017, and it was Myung Hyun-Man's faceplanting KO of Chris Barnett at ROAD FC 041 that took home the win. After their first contest which unfortunately ended by injury, and a follow up viral groin kick of Aorigele, Myung made his final appearance in 2017 a memorable one.   Fan Favorite of the Year: AorigeleNominees: Lee Je-Ji, Chris Barnett, Yoshiko, Aorigele There are so many fighters who could be nominated for Fan Favorite of the Year, but the one who stood out was Aorigele. With his antics both inside and outside the cage, his constant friendly interaction with his fans, and his social media blitz, Aorigele became the clear winner for the world-wide fans.   Fighter of the Year: Kim Soo-ChulNominees: Kim Soo-Chul, Moon Jea-Hoon, Mansour Barnaoui Again, there were so many impressive performances in ROAD FC in 2017, so it was difficult to make up a shortlist of nominees. Kim Soo-Chul's emotional ROAD FC Bantamweight title win, which came after years of toiling against strong international opponents, earned him the highest respect from the fans. Upon accepting his award, Kim announced that he would be retiring from the sport, having accomplished all he'd originally intended to. ROAD FC wishes him a restful time, but does hope to see such a talented fighter return to the cage again one day.

Both fighters came out of their corners with a cautious and technical approach. Frey began landing her punches and creeping up on the scorecards, but Ham landed a huge left that dropped Frey to the canvas. Making sure with a couple of punches before the referee jumped in, Ham emotionally savored the win, and had the Atomweight belt strapped around her waist again. Xiaomi ROAD FC 045 XX Kim Young-Ji took on the imposing Yoshiko and gave her a frightening beating. Kim aggressively came at Yoshiko over and over with great angles and landed just about everything she threw. Yoshiko weathered it with a head of concrete, but Kim's overwhelming performance gave her a stellar victory. Lim So-Hee got out her wushu kicks against Araki Miki for an exciting display of technical striking and counterstriking. Araki really turned it up in the second, but Lim kept her at bay and inflicted damage to get the Unanimous Decision. Destanie Yarbrough and Begimzhan Kasymova gave the audience a taste of the super exciting Women's Openweight division. For two rounds they battered each other, with Yarbrough showing a strong striking game to earn the win on the scorecards. “Fearless Guys” TV contestants Ramona Pascual and Jin Seo-Woo opened up the main card with a show of cage wrestling and knees, knees, knees. The first round was a grinder, but Pascual turned it way up in the second and got the Unanimous nod from the judges.   Young Guns 38 The main event of the prelims was fast and furious violence. Nandin-Erdene launched the first assault with beautiful combos, but Rafael Fiziev deftly weathered them, countered with a 1-2 and dropped the Mongolian with a head kick. Fiziev pulled out his second ROAD FC victory in just 55 seconds. Won Bin-Ki took on late notice stand in Iwata Keisuke but they gave a performance as if they'd been enemies for years. A back and forth nasty scrap saw Ki get the final knockdown and win with a painful back choke. Chris Barnett came back to ROAD FC in rare form with Taekwondo in full display against wrestler Shim Gun-Oh. Shim was as tough as a brick wall, but Barnett chopped away at his legs and then threw a spinning back kick to the stomach that dropped Shim and he called it quits. Hwang In-Su landed himself on the hot prospects list with his 11 second TKO finish of the previously unknockoutable Park Jung-Kyo. Opening up the evening, rookies Kim Yi-Sack and Seo Dong-Soo showed off how the new and well-rounded Korean up and comers are. Two rounds of striking and grappling were nonstop action, with Kim eventually earning the points for the win.  Xiaomi ROAD Fighting Championship 045Saturday, December 23, 2017Grand Hilton Convention CenterSeoul, South Korea Women's Atomweight ChampionshipHam Seo-Hee def Jinh Yu Frey by TKO, R1 4:40 Women's Openweight MatchKim Young-Ji def Yoshiko by Unanimous Decision Women's Atomweight MatchLim So-Hee def Araki Miki by Unanimous Decision Women's Openweight MatchDestanie Yarbrough def Begimzhan Kasymova by Unanimous Decision Women's Bantamweight MatchRamona Pascual def Jin Seo-Woo by Unanimous Decision Young Guns 38 Lightweight MatchRafael Fiziev def Nandin-Erdene by TKO, R1 0:58 -72kg Catchweight MatchKi Won-Bin def Iwata Keisuke by Submission, back choke, R1 2:09 Openweight MatchChris Barnett def Shim Gun-Oh by TKO, R2 3:33 Middleweight MatchHwang In-Su def Park Jung-Kyo by TKO, 0:11 Bantamweight MatchKim Yi-Sack def Seo Dong-Soo by Unanimous Decision 

New CEO Kim Dae-Hwan

 ROAD FC ANNOUNCES APPOINTMENT OF NEW CEO KIM DAE-HWAN ROAD Fighting Championship announces the appointment of a new Chief Executive Officer, Kim Dae-Hwan.   Following yesterday's announcement by ROAD FC Founder and President Jung Mun-Hong that he was tendering his resignation as CEO, ROAD FC announces the appointment of new a CEO, Mr Kim Dae-Hwan.ROAD FC was founded in 2010 by Mr Jung Mun-Hong, who built, funded and directed the rebirth of MMA in Korea following the traumatic effect that the shocking demise of Pride FC had on Asia. Mr Jung's vision led ROAD FC to become the best mixed martial arts promotion that South Korea has ever enjoyed. In July of 2015, ROAD FC started its global expansion with shows in Japan and China, obtained major brand sponsors, and negotiated ground-breaking nationwide tertiary broadcasts in 16 countries worldwide, including China's massive state channel CCTV. Currently, ROAD FC is the first Korean sports brand to achieve global recognition. Succeeding Mr Jung as ROAD FC CEO is Mr Kim Dae-Hwan. Mr Kim has been a well-known broadcasting commentator for combat sports on many top channels for the past 13 years. He has worked hard to develop MMA in South Korea by supporting athletes domestically and abroad, opening gyms, coaching and competing. His professional record stands at 8-1 in the welter- and middleweight divisions, with six knockouts in a row. Mr Kim's most recent bout in October 2017 was a highlight reel-worthy KO win to claim the Wardog Middleweight title in Japan. CEO Kim stated, “The former CEO Jung Mun-Hong started ROAD FC as an eager young man, and now it is the best Asian MMA organization. In the history of combat sports in South Korea, a brand like ROAD FC has never existed. There are about 1,000 ROAD FC affiliate gyms operating in South Korea alone. It is an honor to be inaugurated as the CEO of such an organization. Watching ROAD FC's development from the outside, I have seen how it has developed, and I have many thoughts about what the fans want, and where ROAD FC can progress. I will do my best to make sure that ROAD FC continues as the top organization in Asia, and further the global initiative.” Founder Jung Mun-Hong stated, “When I started ROAD, my wish was to make a stage where my students and juniors could fight forever. I wanted to create a self-sustaining promotion, not a promotion that could fall under the influence of the external environment. Now, ROAD has become a global institution that will never collapse and will continue to evolve further. I am certain that Kim Dae-Hwan will steer Asia's number one MMA league in the direction of even further growth.” The inauguration ceremony of CEO Kim will be held on December 23 at the Year End Festival following ROAD FC 045 XX at the Grand Hilton Seoul, South Korea.
