ROAD FC 042 Results: Aorigele punishes Yusuke, Minowaman stops Sik
Aorigele showed off a more developed skill set against Masuda Yusuke, who proved tough as nails against the “Kungfu Panda”. Aorigele stuffed takedowns and did his main work absolutely punishing Masuda on the ground all the way through two rounds. In the third, Aorigele landed a barrage that dropped Masuda, and the referee jumped on him to stop any further damage.
Legends Minowa Man and Yoon Dong-Sik started their bout with kicks, but it wasn’t long until Yoon was able to get the takedown and transition to Minowa’s back. From there, the two put on an attack and defense display through the first round. In the second, Yoon was even quicker to get Minowa down and mount him, but a freak turn of events saw Yoon end up with a dislocated finger. Although Yoon had the match, the TKO gave Minowa the win.
Shim Gun-Oh took a lot of leg damage from Kim Chang-Hee in their rematch but persevered until he found an opportunity to take the fight to his wrestling ocean where he rag dolled and pounded on Kim to the first bell. In the second round, Shim turned up his striking and landed knees and punches that were so damaging that the referee calling the TKO while Kim was still standing.
Shin Dong-Guk made an emotional entrance with his firefighter colleagues in tribute to two recently fallen comrades which had the arena completely silent in respect. But when he got in the cage with Imai Shunya it was a different story. Imai threw a few punches that sniped, but Shin found a chance to land a kick to the ribs that visibly pained Imai, and he viciously followed it up with punches to the canvas for the TKO.
Jang Ik-Hwan and Emil Abbasov put on a thrilling first match on the main card with furious striking flurries. Jang’s kicks were damaging while Abbasov’s long reach and powerful punches knocked Jang down. At the end of the second round, Jang faked for a takedown and got it, positioning until he got to mount where he pounded on Abbasov until the referee called it.
YOUNG GUNS 36
