Won-Sik Park vs. Shinji Sasaki Added to ROAD FC 26

Fight Network Staff / August 31, 2015 - 6:01pm

1 September, 2015 - 360 GAME presents ROAD FC 026 will take place in Seoul, South Korea at the Jangchung Gymnasium on Hangeul Day, 9 October, 2015.  The Unification of the Flyweight title between Jo Nam-Jin and Song Min-Jong will be the Main Event.

At ROAD FC 026, Korean MMA standout "Parky" Park Wong-Sik celebrates a return from early retirement.  His adversary will be a stellar Japanese rival, Sasaki Shinji.

Busan Team MAD's "Parky" (11-5-1-1) has been heralded as one of the most notable Korean fighters over the last decade.   He competed in DEEP, DREAM and Sengoku before a neck injury forced him into an early retirement. Following a two year hiatus for surgery and rehabilitation, this year "Parky" has made a complete recovery.  At ROAD FC 026, he will jump right back into the thick of the action against Japanese grappling madman Sasaki Shinji.

Burst's Sasaki "Torao Supernova" Shinji (14-8-3) has been a stalwart of SHOOTO for a decade, including being its former Pacific Rim Champion.  He is one of the top lightweight MMA grapplers in Japan who also holds a pair of heavy gloves: he has KOs over Takumi Nakayama and Shin Kochiwa.  Sasaki entered ROAD FC at the beginning of 2015 in an entertaining three round battle against Kim "Armbar" Chang-Hyun.  After Sasaki won the unanimous decision against Kim, it became clear that Sasaki wanted to take on Parky - Kim's teammate - after his new return.

So, at ROAD FC 026, Park Won-Sik and Sasaki Shinji will meet in an epic showdown of two Asian MMA veterans at the top of the lightweight division!

As previously announced, Inaugural Flyweight Champion Jo Nam-Jin and Interim Flyweight Champion Song Min-Jong will meet to unify the ROAD FC Flyweight Title and determine who is the king of the ROAD FC Flyweight division!

Also, Korean Mixed Martial Arts legend and Champion Greco-Roman wrestler Choi Mu-Bae will finally match K-1 wrecking machine and Bellator veteran "Mighty Mo" Siala-Mou Siliga at ROAD FC 026.  Choi and Mighty Mo were originally scheduled to fight in K-1 Dynamite!! USA back in 2007.  Now, they will finally face off in a battle of legendary heavyweights!
