ROAD FC 044 results: Aorigele victorious

 XIAOMI ROAD FC 044 OFFICIAL RESULTS Xiaomi ROAD FC 044 took place on November 11, 2017 at the Hebei Gymnasium in Shijiazhuang, China. The event aired liv on CCTV5 in China, MBC Sports+ in South Korea, Abema in Japan, MNB in Mongolia, SportsFix in Southeast Asia, and YouTube around the world. On CCTV5, ROAD FC 044 live achieved third in the ratings with a 4.88% share, the historic high for ROAD Fighting Championship.    Xiaomi ROAD FC 044 - PART 2 In the main event of the evening, hometown hero Aorigele put in a dominating performance against Fujita Kazuyuki, getting a brutal TKO which was very emotional for the Kungfu Panda. Fujita knew he was in hostile territory and came out aggressively, willing to stand and bang, but Aorigele's size and youth proved to be far too overwhelming. A tearful thank you from Aorigele to the Pride legend showed his humble side. In the quarterfinals for the ROAD FC $1 Million Lightweight Tournament, the leaders emerged from the pack with distinction. Former M-1 and BAMMA Champ Mansour Barnaoui narrowly missed Mongolian National Boxing Champ Nandin-Erdene's power punches and went into the clinch where he showed off some devastating dirty boxing of his own. Barnaoui then changed levels and took Nandin down into deep waters, locking on a choke from behind that caused the Mongolian to quickly tap. Brazil's number one-ranked Ronys Torres wasted no time taking phenom striker Tom Santos into his forte of the grappling realm. From inside a tight half guard, Torres worked on isolating each arm which forced Santos to defend from all angles. When Santos found room to move, it was Torres' opportunity to reposition for an armbar, which he locked on and ended the fight in the first round. Japan Trials winner Shimoishi Kota spoiled China Trials winner Baoyincang's homecoming with superior wrestling and control on the ground. Bao wasn't able to work his fantastic sanda kicks against the Japanese veteran, who played the perfect game against a dangerous striker. Shimoishi bullied Bao on the canvas and taunted him into a top position, where the grappler was able to flip a leg over and go for the armbar. Bao had no defense and quickly tapped out of the tournament. Former M-1 Champ Shamil Zavurov showed off his superman shoots against MGL-1 Champ Amartuvshin Khuukhenkhuu. While there were a few kicks on display from both fighters, the match was won mostly on the ground due to Zavurov's grinding style. Khuukhenkhuu did his best to work off his back to finish, but Zavurov's blanket approach negated the lock ins. After three rounds, the dominant Zavurov earned the decision victory. The ROAD FC $1 Million Lightweight Tournament quarterfinals winners advance to the semifinals bracket as follows: Ronys Torres versus Shamil Zavurov, and Mansour Barnaoui versus Shimoishi Kota. These four impressive fighters have made it one step closer to winning the historic ROAD FC $1 Million Lightweight Tournament! Xiaomi ROAD FC 044 - PART 1 China had reason to cheer as five of their own won their matches – four by TKO. Sha Yilan impressed with his sheer aggression, while Wu Lahan and Ma Anding announced their arrivals on the openweight scene with brutal power and surprising technique. In the Women's Strawweight division, Fujino Emi eked out a split decision over Aline Sattelmayer in a match that showed off the strength of both. Nezu Yuta and Damlanpurev Baasankhuu delivered a very fun battle that the judges ended up scoring a draw.  Xiaomi ROAD FC 044Saturday, November 11, 2017Hebei GymnasiumShijiazhuang, ChinaOFFICIAL RESULTS PART 2 5 Openweight MatchAorigele def Fujita Kazuyuki by TKO, R1 4 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals MatchShamil Zavurov def Amartuvshin Khuukhenkhuu by Unanimous Decision 3 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals MatchShimoishi Kota def Baoyincang by Submission, armbar, R2 4:49 2 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals MatchRonys Torres def Tom Santos by Submission, armbar, R1 4:17 1 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals MatchMansour Barnaoui def Nandin-Erdene by Submission, RNC, R1 2:03 PART 1 7 -71kg Catchweight MatchSha Yilan def Imai Shunya by TKO, pounding, R1 3:39 6 OpenweightWu Lahan def Wang Yinchuan by TKO Doctor Stoppage, R1 2:44 5 OpenweightMa Anding def Kuwabara Kiyoshi by Unanimous Decision 4 Women's Strawweight MatchFujino Emi def Aline Sattelmayer by Split Decision, 2:1 3 Bantamweight MatchWu Ze def Wu Xiaolong by TKO, R1 3:09 2 Bantamweight MatchNezu Yuta vs Baasankhuu Damlanpurev DRAW 1 Lightweight MatchHuang Zhenyue def Iwata Keisuke by TKO, R2 4:01

Kyler Kim Dae-Hwan discusses Aorigele

 XIAOMI ROAD FC 044 KYLER KIM DAE-HWAN DISCUSSES AORIGELE    ROAD Fighting Championship returns to Shijiazhuang, China for Xiaomi ROAD FC 044 on November 11, 2017. At Xiaomi ROAD FC 044, the quarterfinals round of the ROAD FC $1 Million Lightweight Tournament will take place, with eight fighters from six countries participating. And in the main event, fan favorite “Kungfu Panda” Aorigele will face returning Japanese ring legend Fujita “Ironhead” Kazuyuki in a massive Openweight bout. Aorigele is a China National Sanda champion who has KOed 4 of his opponents in ROAD FC, including Yusuke Masuda, Yusuke Kawaguchi and Bob Sapp. Recently, he spent part of his training camp in Seoul, Korea. Kyler Kim Dae-Hwan had the opportunity to coach him and train with the young stand out. Kyler Kim is one of Korea's most well-known MMA and combat sports commentators. He is a long-time MMA fighter and coach, and just recently he won the Wardog Middleweight Championship by a stunning KO. Having so much experience in the MMA industry, Kim is a specialist with a very good ability to speak on fighters and matches.    “Before this fight, I had the opportunity to train a lot with Aorigele in Korea. I became a fan of him because I could see that he really likes MMA. Aorigele has a very good personality, a sense of humor, and he's cute like a little kid. “But his focus in training is very determined. He's big, but so flexible, and his learning speed is very fast. Even given his physique, Aorigele's striking is excellent, and his stamina is amazingly good. “When Aorigele came to my gym, I didn't know much about his takedown defense, cage wrestling, or his skills on the ground, so we trained a lot in all of those areas. I believe he's going to do well in this fight. “I think that Aorigele's fight with Fujita will be easy for him to win, surprisingly easy. Barring what happens if it should go to the ground, I think that Aorigele's striking is going to be enough to finish it.”    Aorigele versus Fujita Kazuyuki takes place as the Main Event on Xiaomi ROAD FC 44 this Saturday, November 11th, at the Hebei Gymnasium in Shijiazhuang, China.

She ended up facing her first opponent Chun Sun-Yoo at ROAD FC 036 and got a highlight reel-worthy KO. She repeated the performance at ROAD FC 039, while showing off her grappling acumen and improved striking... and better sportsmanship. Yoshiko's opponent will be announced shortly.

The Women's Openweight Division will be 80kgs and above. ROAD FC Atomweight Championship Previously announced as the main event, world top ranked Ham Seo-Hee will make her first ROAD FC Atomweight title defense against world top challenger Jinh Yu Frey.

IN KWON A-SOL'S EYES: Shamil vs Amaraa

 XIAOMI ROAD FC 044 IN KWON A-SOL'S EYES: Shamil Zavurov vs Amartuvshin Khuukhenkhuu      Xiaomi ROAD FC 044 will take place on November 11, 2017 at the Hebei Gymnasium in Shijiazhuang, China. Featured on the main card are the four quarterfinals matches on the ROAD FC $1 Million Lightweight Tournament. When the Tournament produces a finalist, he will face ROAD FC Lightweight Champion Kwon A-Sol. The out-spoken Korean OG Kwon has a lot to say, and we've given him a platform in which to do it.

Mansour Barnaoui vs Nandin-Erdene  "So, this is the match between Habib or Bob or whatever's his name's cousin Shamil Zavurov and the 'Hero of Mongolia' Khuukhenkhuu Amartuvshin. Shamil has a style that harasses his opponent with strikes and strong wrestling. Amartuvshin has shown a lot of progress over time, as he showed when he easily KOed Shinji Sasaki last time.   "In this match, the thing to be aware of is that both fighters like to push forward aggressively, so who wins will depend on the fighter who can do it best. It's going to be exciting watching a Russian cannon and a Mongolian cannon face off with heavy hooks and no backing up. "Amartuvshin had better prepare really well for the hellish takedowns of Bob's cousin, who really showed them off against Leo Kuntz in the opening round of 16 fighters. "I expect both fighters to be in this game, but Shamil is likely to be a little ahead. "Hey Habib's cousin! I don't know where this fight will go, but don't go crying to your cousin afterwards."     ROAD FC 044 November 11, 2017 Hebei Gymnasium Shijiazhuang, China PART 2 5 Openweight Match Aorigele vs Fujita Kazuyuki 4 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals Match Shamil Zavurov vs Amartuvshin Khuukhenkhuu 3 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals Match Baoyincang vs Shimoishi Kota 2 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals Match Ronys Torres vs Tom Santos 1 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals Match Mansour Barnaoui vs Nandin-Erdene PART 1 7 -71kg Catchweight Match Sha Yilan vs Bruno Miranda 6 Openweight Wu Lahan vs Wang Yichuan 5 Openweight Ma Anding vs Jake Heun 4 Women's Strawweight Match Fujino Emi vs Aline Sattelmayer 3 Bantamweight Match Wu Ze vs Wu Xiaolong 2 Bantamweight Match Nezu Yuta vs Baasankhuu Damlanpurev 1 Lightweight Match Huang Zhenyue vs Iwata Keisuke

Mansour Barnaoui vs Nandin-Erdene  "Chinese 'Bullfrog' Baoyincang and the Japanese 'King Toad' Shimoishi Kota is a fight between two nations. These two athletes, who easily won in the preliminary trials in China and Japan respectively, are likely to be the strongest fighters from each country. It should be interesting because they have very contrasting styles.  "Baoyincang has great physical power, and that's how he wins fights. Shimoishi uses his wrestling technique and striking to win. "The way this fight goes will depend on how well Baoyincang can defend against Shimoishi's takedowns. Baoyincang will have a lot of trouble if he ends up in the bottom position on the ground under Shimoishi, so it's important to see how he defends any shoots and counters with his striking. If Baoyincang has no takedown defense, Shimoishi will win easily in the first round. "I expect that Shimoishi has a 90% chance of coming out on top. The overwhelming gap in skills between that is like between me and all the quarterfinalists in this tournament. But anyway, try really hard, and show us all a good fight."     ROAD FC 044 November 11, 2017 Hebei Gymnasium Shijiazhuang, China PART 2 5 Openweight Match Aorigele vs Fujita Kazuyuki 4 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals Match Shamil Zavurov vs Amartuvshin Khuukhenkhuu 3 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals Match Baoyincang vs Shimoishi Kota 2 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals Match Ronys Torres vs Tom Santos 1 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals Match Mansour Barnaoui vs Nandin-Erdene PART 1 7 -71kg Catchweight Match Sha Yilan vs Bruno Miranda 6 Openweight Wu Lahan vs Wang Yichuan 5 Openweight Ma Anding vs Jake Heun 4 Women's Strawweight Match Fujino Emi vs Aline Sattelmayer 3 Bantamweight Match Wu Ze vs Wu Xiaolong 2 Bantamweight Match Nezu Yuta vs Baasankhuu Damlanpurev 1 Lightweight Match Huang Zhenyue vs Iwata Keisuke

Mansour Barnaoui vs Nandin-Erdene  “This match will pit the 'invincible grappler' Ronys Torres against Nam Yui-Chul's destroyer, Tom Santos. Watching both of these powerful fighters is really scary. I dream about these guys who can take out someone with one punch, and that's what I want to see them do. “The strength of Ronys Torres is that if you are a striker, he can strike, if you are a wrestler, he can wrestle, and if you have jiu jitsu, well, he is a jiu jitsu specialist. Since the Trials, he's put everyone down. Tom Santos' strength seems to be a combination of his punches and kicks, and powerful knees. He can put on distance with a kick, and come back in with equal power. His knees from the clinch are as powerful as a drill. “I think these two fighters will engage in a battle of distance. Ronys will try a knock down with a ruthless hook, and Tom will use kicks and punches to get inside. In basic power, Ronys is superior. I believe that Tom is better than what people think, but he's more likely to get tackled. “However, eventually one of these guys is going to be put to sleep by me. They both need to practice a lot more. I can finish either of them in the first round.”     ROAD FC 044 November 11, 2017 Hebei Gymnasium Shijiazhuang, China PART 2 5 Openweight Match Aorigele vs Fujita Kazuyuki 4 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals Match Shamil Zavurov vs Amartuvshin Khuukhenkhuu 3 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals Match Baoyincang vs Shimoishi Kota 2 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals Match Ronys Torres vs Tom Santos 1 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals Match Mansour Barnaoui vs Nandin-Erdene PART 1 7 -71kg Catchweight Match Sha Yilan vs Bruno Miranda 6 Openweight Wu Lahan vs Wang Yichuan 5 Openweight Ma Anding vs Jake Heun 4 Women's Strawweight Match Fujino Emi vs Aline Sattelmayer 3 Bantamweight Match Wu Ze vs Wu Xiaolong 2 Bantamweight Match Nezu Yuta vs Baasankhuu Damlanpurev 1 Lightweight Match Huang Zhenyue vs Iwata Keisuke  

ROAD FC 043 injury update: Kim Seung-Yeon and Marcio Cesar

 XIAOMI ROAD FC 043 INJURY UPDATEKIM SEUNG-YEON BREAKS HAND, MARCIO CESAR REQUIRES STITCHES Xiaomi ROAD FC 043 took place at the Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul, South Korea on October 28, 2017. Two fighters were injured and required immediate treatment, Kim Seung-Yeon and Marcio Cesar.   In a reserve match for the $1 Million Lightweight Tournament, Kim Seung-Yeon amped up his punching to counter a very tough Alexander Merezhko. Kim won the match with a second round TKO from punches, but his hand took some damage, and apparently it was early on. Kim stated, “As soon as the first round started, I felt my thumb twist a little and I knew I broke it. My opponent also complained that he was injured during the match, but I fought with a broken finger. It will take some time until the next fight, but I will go do a mountain marathon, do push ups with my fingers, get stronger and then come back.” Kim sustained a fracture at the base of his thumb which will need surgery to realign it. His recovery period will be about 3 months.   In the opening fight, Lee Jeong-Yeong brought a massive onslaught to Marcio Cesar which caused cuts to open up under Cesar's left eye and upper lip. Both were severe enough for the doctor and referee to end the fight. “I got badly beat up in my ROAD FC debut. Thank you for the good opportunity and support. If I have another chance, I will show everyone a better fight.” Cesar required numerous sutures under his left eye and his upper lip.

Mansour Barnaoui vs Nandin-Erdene <<<     “This will be a fight between the 'Ground Hell' of Mansour Barnaoui and the 'Straight Spears' of Nandin-Erdene. “Nandin-Erdene's punch is powerful enough to knock out any opponent. He's got fast feet and can close the distance quickly and then get out. But Mansour Barnaoui is like an anaconda who takes his opponent quickly into 'ground hell' with his long legs and arms. “I am sure that this time Nandin-Erdene will not have an easy win. He is quick, but Mansour Barnaoui's reach can keep the distance and hit him as well. If doesn't land his KO in the first 1 to 2 minutes, he'll be drawn to Mansour Barnaoui's ground game. And the fact that Nandin-Erdene has never experienced the third round is another important variable. At first he will be able to have fast feet, but after a while he will lose his power and his feet will flatten.”   ROAD FC 044 November 11, 2017 Hebei Gymnasium Shijiazhuang, China PART 2 5 Openweight Match Aorigele vs Fujita Kazuyuki 4 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals Match Shamil Zavurov vs Amartuvshin Khuukhenkhuu 3 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals Match Baoyincang vs Shimoishi Kota 2 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals Match Ronys Torres vs Tom Santos 1 $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Quarterfinals Match Mansour Barnaoui vs Nandin-Erdene PART 1 7 -71kg Catchweight Match Sha Yilan vs Bruno Miranda 6 Openweight Wu Lahan vs Wang Yichuan 5 Openweight Ma Anding vs Jake Heun 4 Women's Strawweight Match Fujino Emi vs Aline Sattelmayer 3 Bantamweight Match Wu Ze vs Wu Xiaolong 2 Bantamweight Match Nezu Yuta vs Baasankhuu Damlanpurev 1 Lightweight Match Huang Zhenyue vs Iwata Keisuke
