Thanks to Road FC for finally releasing the full results of the card (that was unavailable for international viewing, despite being televised nationally in South Korea on prime-time from a promotion that has its own reality show).
As FightSportAsia previously reported, flyweight Andrew Leone succumbed bravely to former lightweight Kyung Ho Kang in the tournament final, having already had three hard fought rounds under his belt in the semi-final earlier that night. The other, somewhat more internationally famous Kang won, Mr Denis, formerly of PRIDE and the UFC, and lastly, it should come as no surprise that Robert Malcolm “The Beast” Sapp lost… again. His thirteenth loss in fifteen MMA fights, on top of eleven losses from twelve under K-1 rules. Diabolical.
Stay tuned for the “Tour of Shame” feature in the coming hours.
