ROAD FC returns to China for ROAD FC 047; 2018 Openweight Grand-Prix set to begin
The first entrant of the eight-man field has been announced!
It will be none other than “The Kung Fu Panda” Aorigele (6-3, 1NC).
Aorigele is a solid 6-1 in the ROAD FC cage, most recently finishing Japanese legend Kazuyuki Fujita. At just 23-years-old, the Xindu Martial Arts Club fighter will look to solidify himself as a super heavyweight to look out for with his inclusion in the upcoming openweight grand-prix. All six of his pro wins come via (T)KO, including wins over Fujita, Yusuke Kawaguchi, and Bob Sapp.
No other bouts or grand-prix entrants have been announced for the May 12 show, but expect that to change very soon!
