April 12, 2014

Joachim Hansen defeats Shinya Aoki at Dream 5Featherweights Joachim Hansen and Doo Won Seo will rematch in the main event of Road FC 15 on May 10, when the Korean promotion returns to Wonju with a show at the Chiak Indoor Gymnasium.

The two first fought at Road FC 11. Hansen (23-11-1) won with a second-round arm triangle choke, but only after being saved by the bell when he was on the verge of tapping to a guillotine choke at the end of the opening round.

Seo (9-7) has been granted an immediate rematch against the former Dream lightweight champion and will be looking for his first victory in nearly two years after seeing a six-fight winning streak snapped by last April’s loss to Hansen.

The card also sees the return of Riki Fukuda (20-7) who will be fighting for Road FC for the second time when he takes on Hyae Suk Son (4-5) in a middleweight match-up, which the UFC veteran will be expected to win comfortably.

Another recently released UFC fighter will also be taking on a local favorite at Road FC 15 when Issei Tamura (7-5) goes up against former ONE FC 135-pound champion Soo Chul Kim (8-5), who is coming off an impressive stoppage victory over Motonobu Tezuka.

The fourth match-up to have been revealed by the Korean promotion sees a man with 59 wins take on an opponent with just one victory to his name when veteran Ikuhisa Minowa (59-35-8) looks to continue his good run of recent form against journeyman Jung Gyo Park (1-5).
