ROAD Fighting Championship’s final event of the year, Xiaomi ROAD FC 045 XX, took place in Seoul, South Korea on December 23, 2017. Two fighters sustained injuries during the event.
ROAD FC Atomweight Champion Ham Seo-Hee
Atomweight Champion Ham Seo-Hee retained her belt and her position as the world’s top in the division by a first round TKO over Jinh Yu Frey. However, possibly in the process of the KO blow and hammer fists, Ham’s left radius fractured. It is the first severe injury of her entire career. Surgery will be performed, and Ham’s recovery is expected to be between 4 to 6 months.
Lightweight contender Rafael Fiziev
Rafael Fiziev engaged in a short, brutal bout with fellow striker Nandin-Erdene. While he ducked and covered for most of the opening assault, it was Fiziev’s counter attack in which he did the damage to himself of breaking the index metacarpal on his right hand. Fiziev has already undergone successful surgery, and his recovery period will be 3 to 6 months.
