First MMA Event In Hong Kong! Very Good

On January 11th of 2010 the first ever MMA event in Hong Kong will take place as Legend Fighting Championship hold their inaugural event.

The card is actually very good for a first event. Former King of Sanda Zhao Zilong will face Vicente Pajaro from the Philippines in the main event. However, it’s the Korean fighters who are the big names on the card.

Best Korean welterweight Ui Cheol Nam will finally return to competition as he takes on solid Australian lightweight Adrian Pang in the semi main event.

DREAM participant Myeon Ho Bae will return from his devastating knockout at the hands of Marius Zaromskis to take on DEEP fighter Yoshitomo Watanabe.

A Sol Kwon will return to martial arts competition for the first time since defeating K-1 MAX veteran Serkan Yilmaz in a Kickboxing fight to battle Japanese Masaya Doi. You might remember Kwon’s entertaining fight against Kiuma Kunioku in SENGOKU or his brutal fights against Kwang Hee Lee in Spirit MC.

Check out the full card and other info at the Legend FC website.

    Interesting. I wonder who’s putting up the cash.

    Wow, some really cool names on that card.

    Watch out for Dylan Andrews, one of the best MWs in AU/NZ right now.
