This past weekend was fully awesome. I don’t think I’ve talked about this on the blog before, but ever since I went to my first Road FC event in 2011, I’ve become a big MMA fan and I’ve even been going to the Korean Top Team mma gym for a while now (for you mma buffs, this is where UFC fighter Korean Zombie ChanSung Jung came from). I will have to do a separate blog post on KTT and mma in Korea etc….. but anyway, this past weekend a bunch of the pro fighters from my gym were fighting in the new Top FC event, so I went to support the boys. There were 7 fighters from my gym and 6 won their fight! Victoryyy! I’m so damn proud of every single one of them.
The main event was Dongi Yang (aka, ‘The Ox,’ in the blue shorts) vs. Jae Young Kim. I see Dongi Yang almost every day, working out like a beast. He was even in the UFC but got dropped, and hadn’t had a fight since then, so this was like his comeback, and he freaking won so beautifully (TKO), it brought a tear to my eye. I’m so thrilled for him and can’t wait to see what he’ll do next.
Oh, and I got to meet Big John McCarthy, probably the most esteemed ref in MMA. *excuse me while I nerd-out* And there’s Doohwan after his victory~ he came out mostly unscathed– just some swelling around his eye. Anyway, the whole night was sooo much fun and I can’t wait til the next Top FC event. A huge congrats to all the KTT fighters and Coach Ha! xoxo
