Former UFC heavyweight title contender and world-renowned submission specialist Jeff Monson fights for the sixth time this year when he takes on Kang Dong Gook at Road FC this Saturday in Busan.
Road FC 10 this Saturday night (Nov. 24, 2012) is going to be headlined by a bout between former UFC title challenger Jeff Monson and Korean wrestling champion Kang Dong Gook and will also see the conclusion of the Lightweight Grand Prix with the action taking place at the brand new Bexco Auditorium in Busan.
The two semifinals will be contested between Vuyisile Colossa and Yui Chul Nam and Takasuke Kume and Chul Yoon, who is a replacement for Chang Hyun Kim who suffered an injury after winning his quarterfinal. If previous Road FC tournaments are anything to go by, then the final and semifinal are likely to take place all in one night.
Colossa and Nam have fought once already with the Korean using his wrestling to nullify the South African's world class Muay Thai and claiming a unanimous decision win in the process. Kume will be the favorite to meet the winner in the final as the Japanese lightweight has only lost once in 19 fights.
Another Japanese fighter, Shungo Oyama, won the Road FC Middleweight Grand Prix last year defeating UFC and Pride veteran Denis Kang in the quarterfinals. He will be defending the belt for the first time with Eun Soo Lee looking to claim it for back for Korea.
There will also be a six fight undercard and the entire show is being streamed live and free on the internet. For more information visit: http://www.roadfc.com/
