Road FC 29 has added a bantamweight matchup between Kim Soo-Chul and Marcus Brimage to its lineup, officials have announced.

Road FC 29 will be held March 19 (rescheduled from March 5) at Chiak Stadium in Wonju, South Korea. The main event will feature featherweight champion Choi Mu-Gyeom defending his title against former Pancrase and Sengoku champ Marlon Sandro.

Brimage (7-5) is coming off an eight-fight stint in the UFC following his appearance on The Ultimate Fighter season 14 in 2011. After a three-fight win streak to start his UFC career, the 30-year-old “Bama Beast” has dropped his last two and has only won one of his last five. His most notable win inside the Octagon was a head kick knockout of Jumabieke Tuerxun in Nov. 2014 in Australia.

Kim (12-5-1) is a 24-year-old South Korean fighter who is coming off a unanimous decision over Jungle Fight champion Maike Linhares at Rizin FF in December. Kim had finished four straight Road FC opponents in the first round prior to fighting to a Draw against Marlon Sandro at Road FC 25 last August.
