ROAD FC 052 FIGHT WEEK: CARD HIGHLIGHTS

TAEKWONDO, CARTWHEEL KICKS, AND POWER WRESTLING

ROAD FC 052 Full Card Highlights

The unique ROAD FC Unlimited Points ruleset, with Blue Card point deductions for stalling (on the ground and standing), makes every match in ROAD FC fast-paced, active and exciting. The main and co-main events of ROAD FC 052 have incredibly high stakes, however there are brilliant performers situated throughout the line up. Here are a few of the highlights to watch out for.

Bruno Miranda vs Hong Young-Ki

Bruno Miranda has become a fan favorite with his adrenaline-packed Muay Thai skills. Contrasting his striking style, his opponent Hong Young-Ki is a Taekwondo master, who – like Bantamweight title contender Moon Jea-Hoon – always uses tremendous kicking skills in his fights. This main card match is a striker’s battle that will burn as hot and fast as a firecracker.

Michel Pereira vs Kim Dae-Sung

When two middleweights decide to pack on the pounds and meet in openweight battle, it speaks of violence. This is exactly what high-flying acrobatic Michel Pereira and do-or-die slugger Kim Dae-Sung have agreed to do. Whether the extra weight will ground Pereira’s aerials or add concrete to Kim’s hands serves to increase the anticipation.

Yang Hae-Jun vs Lim Dong-Hwan

The main event for the Young Guns 41 preliminary card features perennial standout Yang Hae-Jun versus young hotrod Lim Dong-Hwan. Yang has showed off a great striking game in the past, and now wants to grind out his opponents with his pressure cooker wrestling. Lim is a diamond in the rough who has shown glimpses of brilliance in his fledgling career, hungrily looking to face, and dominate, a known threat. This is experience versus youth, with a huge amount of power on both sides.
