Following the Road FC 16 weigh-ins earlier today, officials from the top Korean promotion announced that they will be moving back from their usual online PPVs, to a free YouTube stream that will be available for fans around the globe.
The card is headlined by a flyweight championship bout between Jo Nam Jin and Min Jong Song. Don't be misled by their records, as these are two of the most talented and entertaining fighters from the country's talent rich division. Jo has fought above his natural weight class throughout his career, and has wins over Shinichi Kojima and Mikihito Yamagami. Song on the other hand, has looked impressive since dropping down to a natural weight class, and recently impressed by stopping UFC vet Issei Tamura.
The co-headliner features Riki Fukuda's sophomore outing with the promotion. After 5-fight stint in the UFC, Fukuda won his debut at Road FC last January against Hee Seung Kim. On this card, he faces long time PRIDE vet Dong Sik Yoon.
The main card will be streamed live on July 26th, starting at 7 a.m. ET, so set your alarms and join us on Bloody Elbow to start your weekend with some excellent Asian MMA action.
