ROAD FC Lightweight Championship

ROAD FC Lightweight Champion Kwon A-Sol and $1 Million Lightweight Tournament Winner Mansour Barnaoui finally met in the cage after two year's of elimination rounds of more than 40 competitors leading up to the 16-man tournament.

It was a very quick engagement from both men in the clinch with Barnaoui getting the better of it and landing big punches to Kwon's head until he could drag him down. Barnaoui continued to pound, and stuck like glue as Kwon twisted and turtled. Once he got the back, Barnaoui cooly held on to a tight rear naked choke, and Kwon had to tap.

Mansour Barnaoui becomes the new ROAD FC Lightweight Champion after an incredible run in the tournament, and walks away with $1 million!




ROAD FC 053 recap

Openweight sluggers Aorigele and Heo Jae-Hyeok came out of their corners like freight trains crashing. It wasn't long before the devastating blow landed, and once again Aorigele's massive fists put away another opponent. Heo was incredibly brave to take the fight on less than a week's notice!

Firefighter Shin Dong-Guk blasted in on Hayashi Tamotsu in their rematch, and even while Hayashi was able to reverse to top position, he took a beating. When the referee stood them up, it was a gigantic exchange on the feet, and Shin once again walked away with another win by huge TKO.

Kim Tae-In was able to get a rapid finish of Lim Dong-Hwan by going into the clinch, getting him down, and pounding him out until the referee's stoppage.

Yang Ji-Ho and Park Hyung-Geun finally had their match in the cage, and they came at each other with heavy striking and grinding clinches. Yang stumbled Park with punches and they each got takedowns in the first round. Yang swung for the fences in the second with sporadic results, but it was enough for him to take the win on the scorecards.
