$1 Million Tournament Opening Round


Shinji Sasaki vs Amartuvshin Khuukhenkhuu: Former Shooto Champ Sasaki is a grappler with KO power, and former MGL-1 Champ Khuukhenkhuu is a judoka and sambo fighter, so the tone of this match is very unpredictable. 


Tom Santos vs Nam Yui-Chul: Dragonfight Champ Santos made a huge entrance when he KOed former ROAD FC Champ Nam Yui-Chul in their International Trials bout, but since final seed Rafael Fiziev broke his hand, Nam gets a chance to avenge his loss and his reputation.


Ronys Torres vs Elnur Agaev: Shooto Brasil Champ Torres likes to show off his superb technique to get a finish, and MFP warhorse and Russia Trials winner Agaev uses his grinding strength for the same, so this will definitely be an interesting style versus style bout.


Shimoishi Kota vs Park Dae-Sung: Former DEEP title challenger and Japan Trials winner Shimoishi is at the top of his career while hot prospect Park is just coming into his, and both are facing the most important fight of their lives. 


Nandin-Erdene vs Toninho Furia: Hard-hitting Mongolian National Boxing champ Nandin-Erdene and creative Bitetti Combat Champ Toninho Furia are sure to deliver a match of unbelievable striking. 


Kim Chang-Hyun vs Mansour Barnaoui: Representing opposite timelines, wizened veteran Kim and young world-wide prospect former M-1 and BAMMA Champ Barnaoui are both exceptional grapplers who will impress with their technique. 


Shamil Zavurov vs Leo Kuntz: Former M-1 Champ Zavurov is technical and tough whereas former Impact FC Champ Kuntz is an unorthodox finisher; both men are both well-rounded fighters that will deliver an exceptional match. 


Red Romero vs Baoyincang: Former URCC Champion and SEA Trials winner Romero and China National Sanda Champ Baoyincang are two of the region's most unsung heroes who finally have a chance to prove their worth in an international Tournament of epic proportions.


Xiaomi ROAD FC 040 Part 1
