After a successful first season, the UFC is back with a second season of Road to UFC. The year-long tournament pits eight fighters from four different weight classes against each other with a UFC contract for the winner of each division.
All four quarterfinals cards take place this Saturday and Sunday on Asia primetime with each card featuring four tournament matchups across various divisions and a showcase bout highlighting emerging prospects looking to make a statement. Saturday’s two cards will highlight fighters from the Featherweight and Flyweight divisions, while Sunday’s bouts feature the Bantamweights and Lightweights.
This event sees Kaiwen Li and Kai Lu in the top-billed bout, while the undefeated Sumit Kumar looks to turn back Seung Guk Choi, returning after suffering a loss in last year’s tournament finals. In the Welterweight showcase, knockout artist Taiyilake Nueraji faces off with the returning Han Seul Kim in a fight that promises fireworks.
