Imagine a tournament where there was no weight limit. Fighters could show up and weigh whatever weight they wanted to when they entered the cage. Imagine those fights happening inside a 20,000 seat Arena. Now imagine those fights actually being part of an 8 man tournament, and featured one of the most dangerous K1 strikers of all time competing in MMA.
Now stop imagining, and circle May 12, 2018 in your calendar because that will be the first round of the inaugural 8 man Openweight Grand Prix being promoted by Road FC at their 47th event. The tournament just announced the addition of Jerome Le Banner as their final participant in the event scheduled to take place at the Cadillac Arena in Beijing China.
Le Banner while 3-3-1 in MMA, is considered one of the best Kickboxers in the world having a record of 81 wins, 22 loss and 1 draw. Lebanner is a former ISKA Champion and K1 World Grand Prix tournament winner, and one of the most established names in Muay Thai, Kickboxing, and K-1 style combat sports.
