Xiaomi ROAD FC 038 Young Guns 33 update: Lee Hyung-Seok replaces Jin Tae-Ho against Kim Kyung-Pyo




ROAD Fighting Championship announces a change to the Young Guns 33 preliminary card on Xiaomi ROAD FC 038 on April 15, 2017 in the Jangchung Arena in Seoul, South Korea.


Kim Kyung-Pyo (6-1, MMA Story) was set to take on Jin Tae-Ho (2-3, Ronin Crew) at lightweight, however Jin has injured his knee in training and will undergo surgery. Kim will now face Lee Hyung-Seok (13-9, Team Hon).


Kim is coming off an excellent win over former Pancrase and Gladiator champ Yamashita Gota. He is a well-rounded prospect from the gym with two ROAD FC champs: Cha Jung-Hwan and Choi Mu-Gyeom. 


Lee is coming off a loss in the Lightweight Trials to Toninho Furia.  As a seasoned competitor, he's not a stranger to accepting tough fights, and has agreed to step in on short notice.  Lee is a 10-year journeyman and ROAD FC stalwart who has racked up submission wins in Korea, China, Japan and Taiwan.

As previously announced for the main event of Young Guns 33, “Crying Fist” alumnis Park Hyun-Geun and Jang Dae-Young face off. Both proven that their grappling and striking are equally impressive, so their match up will be a turning point for the two up and comers.
