Aorigele faces Jerome Le Banner at Road FC 53
Jerome Le Banner has an opponent at Road FC 53. The two time K-1 World Grand Prix runner up has been matched with Chinese heavyweight Aorigele in Jeju Island on May 18th.
Aorigele (7-3) is a veteran of eight fights. He is riding a four fight winning streak into this openweight contest with all of those victories coming inside the distance.
Le Banner (3-3-1) is better known for his exploits in the kickboxing ring than his MMA career. However the Frenchman is a veteran of seven fights who was last seen in action on a Rizin card in 2017.
Last year Aorigele beat Jae Hun Kim to book a spot in the semi finals of the Road FC Openweight Grand Prix. However that tournament appears to have been put on the backburner by the promotion.
