Korea's Road Fighting Championship Coming Off 'Biggest Success Ever'

Despite losing money for three years straight and "a dearth of impact fighters," the Road Fighting Championship, Korea's largest Mixed Martial Arts organization, "is in good shape," according to Jung Min-ho of the KOREA TIMES. The Road FC finished its 11th event with its "biggest success ever at the Olympic Hall on Saturday." Although the ticket sales remained to be counted, the 3,000-capacity venue was almost filled. Road FC CEO Jung Mun-hong said, "Last year showed the Road FC's rapid growth. This year, we will continue to work hard to make the sport global and more popular." For the first time, the event made its foray into int'l broadcasting with a live pay-per-view on Ustream (KOREA TIMES, 4/14).
