South Korea-based promotion ROAD FC is back in Beijing, China to host their 47th major event, and it will kick off their 2018 Openweight Grand Prix. With a good mix of established veterans, recognizable names and fun action fighters like Aorigele, Mighty Mo, Gilbert Yvel, and Huggy Bear, the eight-man tournament seems poised to deliver with some crazy (super) heavyweight action.
Also in the card is BJJ crossover star Gabi Garcia, who will look to improve to 5-0 (1 NC) in her MMA career, as she takes on Veronika Futina.
You can watch the entire card on their live stream here. Prelims will start at 4:30 a.m. ET, while the main card should kick off at 7:15 a.m. ET.
