Denis Kang signs with Korean promotion Road FC

UFC veteran Denis Kang announced, via his Twitter account, that he has signed a multiple-fight contract with Road FC.

The promotion held their inaugural show, Road FC 1: The Resurrection of Champions, last year on Oct. 23. On the card, Daisuke “13” Hanazawa defeated former Deep champion and SRC veteran Seung Hwan Bang

Since the collapse of former Elite XC partner Spirit MC there has not been a major league MMA show in South Korea. Moon Hong Jung, a former Korean national kickboxing champion, resides over the promotion.

Kang, who was born to a Korean father and French mother, was a Spirit MC mainstay between 2004-2008. He went 10-0 for the promotion. In 2007, he defeated Jung Gyu Choi to win the Spirit MC heavyweight title and then defended it against Kim Jae Young in 2008.

The middleweight also fought for Pride FC and UFC. He holds victories over Xavier Foupa-Pokam, Akihiro Gono and Murilo “Ninja” Rua. In his last fight, Kang drew with former WEC champion Paulo Filho at Impact FC 2.

Kang is also scheduled to face fellow UFC veteran Jesse Taylor on April 7 on Battlefield Fight League: Invasion in British Columbia.
