ROAD Fighting Championship announces the return of the infamous Yoshiko at Xiaomi ROAD FC 045 XX in Seoul, South Korea on December 23, 2017.





She's back!


Outstanding women's professional wrestler from Japan, Yoshiko (2-0, SEAdLINNNG) will be making her third appearance in an MMA bout in the ROAD FC cage at Xiaomi ROAD FC 045 XX. From a young age, she knew she wanted to be in the fighting sports, and she got her taste of pro wrestling as a start. After winning accolades as a breakout young wrestler and earning several championship belts, she went “off script” and injured an opponent severely. Thus, she was banned for a year.


Making amends and coming back, Yoshiko still was hungry for more and she transitioned to MMA. 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. This match will be in the newly minted Women's Heavyweight division, which is now set for +65kgs to -80kgs. 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. Ham made history by winning the first ROAD FC Women's Atomweight title by finishing DEEP champion Mina Kurobe in a thrilling battle. Jinh Yu Frey is the former Invicta FC Atomweight title challenger and now top-ranked in the world's first all-female MMA promotion.


ROAD FC Atomweight Champion Ham Seo-Hee versus Jinh Yu Frey is the world's most important match in the division today!
