October 8, 2013 – ROAD Fighting Championship announces the full thrilling line up of twelve fights for another action-packed MMA event. ROAD FC 013 and Young Guns 9 will take place this coming Saturday, October 12th, 2013 in the J.H. Park Stadium in Gumi, South Korea. The Main Event will be Lightweight Champion Nam Yui-Chul’s first title defense against Kume Takasuke. Both fighters were the Finalists in the ROAD FC Lightweight Tournament. At ROAD FC 011, Nam won the title after going into a fourth overtime round in a very close and hard-fought battle with Kume. The future of the ROAD FC Lightweight Champion will be determined in this highly anticipated rematch between two of the best and most exciting lightweight fighters.
The first of four Superfights will be a lightweight challenge between Korea’s icon Kwon A-Sol, who is returning to MMA after two years of military service, against Japan’s KO artist Koji Nakamura. The second Superfight will be a bantamweight contest between Issei Tamura, a recent UFC veteran, and Song Min-Jong, the recent Championship Contender. An exciting and historic middleweight Superfight features Japanese super star Ikuhisa Minowa in the 100th fight of his career against the very tough Kim Hoon. The final Superfight of the Main Card will be a welterweight clash between heavy hitting Karate Champion Andrews Nakahara and grappling ace Cha Jung-Hwan.
The Young Guns 9 Undercard will be the Semifinal matches for the Featherweight tournament, Kwon Bae-Yong versus Kosuke Umeda and Kil Yong-Bok versus Choi Moo-Gyum. All four fighters have the capability of winning the entire tournament, so the Semifinals will be hotly contested bouts with a lot riding on the outcome. Future featherweight contenders meet in two more matches: Yoon Heo versus Jo Byoung-Oak and Yoon Jae-Oon versus Jeon Uh-Jin. A Bantamweight Superfight sees the ongoing rivalry between ROAD FC and DEEP FC continue as “Little Korean Zombie” Lee Yun-Jun returns to take on the “Korean Killer”, Makoto Kamaya from DEEP. Rounding out the Young Guns 9 Card is 2-time “Crying Fist” competitor Han Ee-Moon taking on wild horse Kim Hyoo-Ryong, and bantamweight kickboxing pro Kim Seong-Jae dropping to flyweight to face ROAD FC Into League top four finalist Kim Gyu-Hwa.
On October 12th, the Young Guns 9 Undercard will begin at 4:30 KST and the ROAD FC 013 Main Card will begin at 7:30.
