Hirano Yoshiko (1-0, SEAdLINNNG), started her pro wrestling career at only 17 years of age and won numerous Championships. But when Yoshiko went “off script” and beat an opponent so badly that she needed career-ending surgery, it signaled that a change was inevitable. She turned her aggressive tendencies to MMA. Chun Sun-Yoo was her first opponent. Yoshiko ended up with a highlight reel KO over Chun, even though it wasn’t exactly a technical display to watch.

Chun Sun-Yoo (0-2, Team Fighter) competed in the ROAD FC amateur Central League in 2015 and made her pro MMA debut in 2016 in Hong Kong’s IMPI, an event run by former ROAD FC standout Vuyisile Colossa. Chun suffered back to back losses to Ramona Pascual then Yoshiko to start off her career. But Chun isn’t deterred. She watched her tape over and over, and is convinced that her game has developed enough to rematch Yoshiko and finally notch herself a win and respect in the history books.

Yoshiko versus Chun will be a seat-gripping affair between to very fierce and aggressive young female fighters in a rare openweight match up!
