The event is set for December 15th at the Hilton Hotel in Seoul. Hee (19-8) won the belt by beating Jinh Yu Frey at Road FC 45 last year and has scored two stoppage wins since signing for the Korean promotion.
The 31-year-old had fought four times for the UFC and went the distance on each occasion. She bounced back from this disappointment to seize the Road FC atomweight title and will be defending it for the first time next month.
Her opponent Jung-Eun (4-4-1) has won her two most recent Road FC fights but has been fighting in Japan. She registered two losses and a win for Deep-Jewels with all three of those bouts going the distance.
Next up for the Korean promotion is Road FC 50 which is set for Daejeon this Saturday and will be headlined by a featherweight title fight between champion Choi Mu-Gyeom and challenger Lee Jeong-Yeong.
