Seung-Yeon (3-2) earned the nickname ‘Keyboard Warrior’ after calling out several opponents online. He has proven his mettle away from the computer screen by winning three fights out of five for the Korean promotion.
No-Joo (1-1) will be making a comeback after an astonishing eight years away from the cage. Road FC had not even been formed when he last saw action, with a first round stoppage win at an M-1 event in 2010.
Road FC 52 will feature the final of the lightweight tournament. Shamil Zavurov faces Mansour Barnaoui and the winner will receive $1 million in prize money and a shot at reigning lightweight champion A Sol Kwon.
