On Sunday, Jan. 31, South Korea’s ROAD Fighting Championship hosted its 28th event from the Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul.
In the night’s main event, UFC veteran Riki Fukuda looked to defend his middleweight title against Jung-Hwan Cha. The 35-year-old Fukuda was released from the UFC following a 2-3 run with the promotion, but the Japanese fighter had rebounded by going 4-0 with one no-contest in his five appearances under the ROAD banner. All four of his recent wins had come via strikes. Cha, meanwhile, is a well-traveled veteran that was 3-0-2 over his last five outings. He bested Alexandre Barros at ROAD FC 019 in November by unanimous decision.
The main card kicked off at 5 a.m. ET.
