Park Jeong-Eun to Ham Seo-Hee: “Even if you lose, don't retire!”

   At 22 years young, “Little Wolf” Park Jeong-Eun sees her dream come true: a match with her idol Ham Seo-Hee. Park will be the third challenger for Ham's Atomweight title at ROAD FC 051 XX on this coming Saturday, December 15, 2018. Park is now 4-4-1 in her professional MMA career which has included some very tough matches against the top opponents in Asia. She has never been finished, even when facing the likes of Emi Fujino, former DEEP Women's Lightweight Champion Hisae Watanabe, former DEEP Jewels Atomweight Champion Mina Kurobe, and current DEEP Jewels Atomweight Champion Tomo Maesawa. Now Park will face the number one women's atomweight fighter in the world. She said she has waited for a confrontation with Ham since she started MMA, “Ham Seo-Hee is my hero. Before I even made my professional debut, I learned by watching her videos. So far, all of the matches I've had were preparations to fight her. I thought I could be the only opponent for Ham in Korea, and I hoped that ROAD FC would stick with me after all.” Park has the dream of almost all women atomweights right in front of her eyes, so she could not hide their excitement when she was given the title challenge, “As soon as I received the chance to fight for the title, I knew my time had finally come. It's an honor to have a title fight with someone I respect so much.” ROAD FC CEO Kim Dae-Hwan explained how Park came to be chosen as Ham's opponent, “When we were looking for Ham Seo-Hee's next challenger, of course we looked internationally. Then someone said 'Why can't it be a Korean fighter?' I have been watching many of the atomweights and in my mind I thought they weren't ready yet. But we kept up with the discussion, and decided that Park Jeong-Eun was up to the task.” Park knows that there will be people who might not think she deserves this chance, and she keeps a very mature outlook about it, “There are people who support me, and I know there are a lot of people who think the opposite. But at least there is interest in me, and because of this fight, it's increased. As a professional fighter, that feels good.”    Park has shown her ability in all areas of MMA skills, and she has a great deal of power and heart. She shares what will be her best expectations in this match, “Of course, I'm training to avoid losing in any area. I'm proud to say that my youth is my greatest strength against her. And I'm really confident of my striking. I'm not saying that grappling isn't fun, but I think the fans will be curious to see us trade punches. I will try my best against her.” Even though Ham is Park's idol and the toughest opponent she has ever faced, Park relishes this opportunity, “I want to experience how strong the first place fighter in the world is, but at the same time, I have a fight to fight, and I plan on showing how good my punches are. Actually, I'm worried for her! I believe in myself. Unconditionally, I will fight to win because I believe I can.” To the ROAD FC fans, she says, “If you are interested in me either way, please be sure to watch what happens on fight day. I will put on a great performance whether I win or lose.” To Ham Seo-Hee, Park has words that are both complimentary and inciting, “Champion Ham, I'm sure you have prepared a lot. In this fight, please show me the skills of your prime. I'm curious. And even if you lose to me, please don't retire. I'm your fan!”

ROAD FC 047 official results

 ROAD FC 047 MAKES A SUCCESSFUL RETURN TO BEIJING, CHINAFOUR WINNERS PROGRESS IN THE OPENWEIGHT GRAND PRIXGABI GARCIA NOTCHES ANOTHER DOMINANT VICTORY ROAD Fighting Championship announces the official results from for ROAD FC 047 which took place at the Cadillac Arena in Beijing, China on May 12, 2018.   2018 Openweight Grand Prix Opening Round Aorigele, Gilbert Yvel, Oli Thompson, and Chris Barnett all finished their opponents in style to make the opening round of the Openweight Grand Prix a walloping good time. Aorigele and Kim Jae-Hun put on a rematch that was markedly different from their first. While the first and second rounds delivered in laughs, the action was sparse, with Aorigele landing a few kicks, and Kim preferring to keep distance. Aorigele came out like a bull in the third, and rushed Kim with punches that put him down and covering until the ref stepped in. Gilbert Yvel put the exclamation point on his return with a dominant finish of ROAD FC Openweight Champion Mighty Mo. Yvel rushed out from the corner, got the takedown, and worked positions all over Mo until the ref saw a dislocated elbow and stopped the match. Yvel claimed a surprising TKO victory using excellent submission attempts. Oli Thompson was thoroughly surprised by the power punches and grappling of Deng Chaolong. However, Thompson's experience saw him weather the storm and go for takedowns and pounding that eventually caused Deng to tap out in the second. Behemoths Chris Barnett and Sandu Lungu delivered a thriller. Barnett came out with his signature kicks, and Lungu got the back take during one of them, where he worked it down for a rear naked choke. But Barnett came out the back, and put on the hurt game until the ref stepped in for a TKO victory. Kong Handong took an accidental groin shot by “Iron Head” Fujita Kazuyuki, and before the ref made it in time to time stop, Fujita had popped him in the mouth. Kong decided not to continue and the TKO stoppage was given to Fujita in the second round.   Gabi Garcia finishes Veronika Futina Gabi Garcia continued her sensational career in MMA against a very game Veronika Futina. Futina came out wanting to box, and she knew to stay away from the takedowns, but Garcia could not be denied. After showing off some much improved striking, Garcia got the fight down where she forced Futina to defend until she sunk in the rear naked choke for the submission victory.   ROAD FC 047 Part 1 Alatengheili and Kwak Jong-Hyun delivered an expected barnburner for the fans. Alateng looked to be taking a huge amount of strikes from Kwak, but in the second round, Alateng found the distance for his jab, and honed in on Kwak's face that sent him down and the ref waived off the bout. Sanda Champ Baoyincang showed amazing improvement in his grappling defense against Shooto Champ Shinji Sasaki. Bao worked his kicks and punches, while Sasaki looked for shoots and submissions. In the second and third rounds, Bao was so close to finishing, but the Japanese warrior held on to the bell. Bao's hand was raised and the roof came off the arena. Jing Yingchao wasted no time displaying her wrestling acumen against Marina Kumagai with a big takedown and massive punches to the head in both rounds. She convincingly claimed the win on the scorecards. Intelligent striker Ki Won-Bin avoided a striking war with Muay Thai champion “Saksurin” Khaorat, instead choosing shoots and trying for damage on the ground. In the third round, Saksurin really shined, but Ki kept up his takedown game plan and it won him the decision victory. Chinese MMA OG Baoshe Riguleng's return to MMA showed off his incredibly active and aggressive style against gatekeeper Bruno Miranda, who was forced to show off his tactical side with crafty counter punches, leg kicks and shoots. After a blistering 3 rounds, Miranda's performance put him ahead on the scorecards with a unanimous decision win.  ROAD Fighting Championship 047May 12, 2018Cadillac ArenaBeijing, ChinaOFFICIAL RESULTS PART 2 #5 2018 Openweight Grand Prix Opening Round MatchAorigele def Kim Jae-Hun by TKO, R3 0:33 #4 2018 Openweight Grand Prix Opening Round MatchGilbert Yvel def Mighty Mo by TKO, injury, R1 3:50 #3 Women's Openweight MatchGabi Garcia def Veronika Futina by Submission, RNC, R1 3:50 #2 2018 Openweight Grand Prix Opening Round MatchOli Thompson def Deng Chaolong by TKO, R1 3:50 #1 2018 Openweight Grand Prix Opening Round MatchChris Barnett def Alexandru Lungu by TKO, R1 2:37 PART 1 #6 Reserve Openweight MatchFujita Kazuyuki def Kong Handong by TKO, retirement, R2 4:46 #5 62.5 Catchweight MatchAlatengheili def Kwak Jong-Hyun by TKO, R2 2:40 #4 -72kg CatchweightBao Incang def Sasaki Shinji by Unanimous Decision #3 Women's Bantamweight MatchJing Yingchao def Marina Kumagai by Unanimous Decision #2 Lightweight MatchKi Won-Bin def Thirayut Khaorat by Unanimous Decision #1 -72kg CatchweightBruno Miranda def Baoshe Riguleng by Unanimous Decision

 XIAOMI ROAD FC 046 RESULTSLEE JEONG-YEONG EARNS FEATHERWEIGHT CHALLENGER STATUS ROAD Fighting Championship announces the Official Results for Xiaomi ROAD FC 046 which took place on March 10, 2018 in the Jangchung Arena in Seoul, South Korea.   In the main event, the battle for the Contender to face Featherweight Champion Choi Mu-Gyeom, Lee Jeong-Yeong sealed the deal against Kim Se-Yeong in their second meeting. From the onset, Lee had Kim on the back foot with hard punches, one of which finally slammed him sprawling on his rear, and the ref had to pull Lee off to stop the bout in the first round. Lee Jeong-Yeong earns the right to challenge for ROAD FC Featherweight Champion Choi Mu-Gyeom's belt!  Crying Fist vs Fearless Guys Hong Young-Ki knew he could almost coast against Eom Tae-Woong, who was penalized 10 points per round for missing weight by 7kgs. However, rookie Eom proved very durable until Hong was finally able to get him to the canvas where he softened him up for a 6-seconds-to-the-bell armbar. Park Hyung-Geun and Moon Jin-Hyuk put on a barnburner through two rounds with uncountable punches, slapping kicks, and grinding cage work, and the scorecards came out with a 1-1-Draw. At openweight, Heo Jae-Hyeok was pummeled and slammed to the canvas by “Yakuza” Kim Jae-Hun, but when Kim went for an armbar, Heo escaped and reversed the position, knocking out Kim to the roar of a stunned crowd.  Xiaomi ROAD FC 046 Opening up Part 2 , Alatengheili waited out the long, hard kicks and punches of the rangy Jang Ik-Hwan to time an absolutely perfect right that dropped him back, stunned, to the canvas. There, Alateng jumped in and pounded out Jang for the first round TKO. On Part 1, Hwang In-Su stayed undefeated with a fourth 1st round TKO by assaulting Kim Nae-Chul so relentlessly that the ref jumped in while he was still standing, at under a minute. Hwang sealed his status as THE welterweight rookie to watch. Ma Anding and Hamada Junpei delivered a brutal openweight war for three rounds, with Ma's punches landing in the early rounds, and relentless trips to end it. Park Hae-Jin did his very best to put Cho Byeong-Oak on his back and finish him with a submission, and even after a yellow card for two low blows, he had done enough work and damage to earn the win. Min Kyeong-Chul knew he was facing a tough striker in Huang Zhenyue so he went to the ground and scored a win by his points being dominant there. In the opening fight of the night, La In-Jae ran a smart and effective plan against rookie Lim Dong-Hwan with shoots and position control to earn the Unanimous Decision.  New Wave MMA 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.
