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.

Road FC 53 will be headlined by a lightweight title fight. Champion Kwon A-Sol is defending his belt against Mansour Barnaoui in the final of the $1 Million Lightweight Tournament.
