Jae Young Kim faces Jong Hwan Lee in middleweight title fight at AFC 15
A middleweight title fight will headline AFC 15. Seasoned veteran Jae Young Kim takes on the inexperienced Jong Hwan Lee in Seoul on January 15th.
Kim (25-13-0-2) became the interim middleweight champion at AFC 14 in August. He is also a former Top FC 185lbs champion and is coming off back to back first round stoppage wins.
Lee (1-1) returns to competitive MMA after a two year absence. He scored the only win of his career at Road FC 48 in 2018 and has not fought since.
The event is set for the Sindorim Techno Mart Grand Ballroom. It had originally been set to take place on December 15th but appears to have been postponed.
In other news the promotion’s bantamweight champion has relinquished his title. Undefeated Young Jae Song won the belt at AFC 12 last year but will be unable to defend it for two years due to compulsory military service.
