Road Fighting Championship’s next event will feature an over-40 matchup of hard-hitting heavyweights.
The leading South Korean promoter on Monday announced that former Greco-Roman wrestler Mu Bae Choi will face kickboxing stylist Siala-Mou Siliga as part of Road FC 26. No other bouts have been revealed for the card, which takes place Oct. 9 -- the national holiday “Hangul Day” in Korea -- at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul.
Choi and Siliga were first scheduled to meet nearly a decade ago at K-1 Hero’s “Dynamite!! USA” in June 2007. However, Choi withdrew from the fight at the last minute, leaving Siliga to defeat last-minute replacement Ruben “Warpath” Villareal via first-round stoppage.
Pride veteran Choi, 45, returned from a three-year hiatus in 2013 and has won all three of his bouts since, including two knockouts inside two minutes. “The Heavy Tank of Busan” last saw action on July 25, when he punched out former Deep champ Yusuke Kawaguchi at Road FC 24.
Better known as “Mighty Mo,” Siliga will attempt to halt a three-fight skid in his Road FC debut. The 44-year-old native of American Samoa racked up a 3-1 record under the Bellator banner in 2013 and 2014, including surprising submissions of Ron Sparks and fellow K-1 vet Peter Graham.
