ROAD FC 039: Yoshiko is back!

2017-05-15 07:00



ROAD Fighting Championship announces that professional wrestler Yoshiko will return to fight MMA at Xiaomi ROAD FC 039 in Seoul, Korea on June 10, 2017.




Hirano Yoshiko (1-0, SEAdLINNNG), started her pro wrestling career at only 17 years of age. She was awarded as a rookie and for her outstanding performances, as well as winning numerous pro-wrestling Championships. But when Yoshiko beat an opponent so badly that she needed surgery which ultimately ended her pro wrestling career, Yoshiko's villain persona in the ring tragically came true to life.

So, the notorious Yoshiko was given the opportunity to focus her aggressive tendencies in the sport of MMA. At ROAD FC 036, Yoshiko made an astounding debut with a first-round knockout of Chun Sun-Yoo. She was momentarily overjoyed at proving herself in MMA, but she quickly resumed her game face. Yoshiko said,

There's nobody strong enough to beat me in professional wrestling. So I'm going to come back to MMA.”

Yoshiko's opponent for Xiaomi ROAD FC 039 will be announced shortly.
