All eight fighters who will participate in the Road FC Global Lightweight Tournament with a prize pool of 100 million won have been confirmed.

On the 23rd, the organization uploaded videos of the eight fighters who will participate in the lightweight tournament on its official YouTube channel and Chairman Jung Moon-hong’s personal YouTube channel, “Gaohyeong Life.

The domestic players who will participate in the tournament were specially scouted. Kwon Asol sparred with the players on his personal YouTube channel and selected the recommended players. Of course, he didn’t talk to Road FC beforehand.

It was only on the day that Kwon started filming the players he had recommended for the seeding that he asked Chairman Jung Moon-hong for his consent. Chairman Jung Moon-hong was taken aback by the suddenness of the situation, but eventually decided to seed them through a competition.

A total of four Korean athletes were seeded. “Lightweight Champion” Park Si Won (21, Cowboy MMA) and “Featherweight Champion” Park Hae Jin (31, Kingdom MMA) were seeded first. Through Gao’s Scouting Program, “Hwang In-Soo Sniper” Yoon Tae-Young (27, Jeju Team The King) and “Mongolian National Boxing Team” Nandin Erden (36) were selected. Nandin Erden was seeded as a South Korean as he was granted South Korean citizenship.

There are also four foreign fighters. Their nationalities range from Brazil, Japan, Cameroon, and Russia. The Brazilian fighter is Filipe Jeuse (31, PHUKET FIGHT CLUB), who has an 11-4 record. He has excellent ground skills and a solid striking game.

The Cameroonian is Max (39, BRAVE GYM). He is the No. 1 ranked Shooto lightweight with a 13-9 overall record. He is good with both strikes and ground. Seeded as a Japanese fighter, he has a 1-1 record against reigning Shuto Pacific Rim Champion Shutaro Devana (38, COBRAKAI). He is a seasoned athlete and has excellent ground skills, having won multiple wrestling and jiu-jitsu tournaments.

The final Russian fighter is Artur Solovyev (28, MFP). He doesn’t have a stellar record with 7 wins and 6 losses, but you can’t really judge him on that. He’s so strong that he’s one of the most feared players in the Russian MFP. His strength is on the ground.

The lightweight seeding has now been finalized, and the bantamweight seeding will be revealed through ‘Gaohyeong Life’ to reveal the process of scouting domestic players.스포츠토토
