The Road to UFC competition returns in 2024, with top Asian prospects competing for a UFC contract.

On Sunday, May 19, 2024, the Road to UFC Season 3, Episode 3, card began this year’s competition live from the UFC Performance Institute in Shanghai, China. Featherweights and women’s strawweight will each compete twice, with one highlight match taking place outside the competition.

WonBin Ki defeated Tatsuya Saika by TKO (strikes) at 0:51 of Round 2

WonBin Ki and Tatsuya Saika opened off Episode 3 of Road to UFC with a non-tournament lightweight bout that at moments resembled a game of Rock’em Sock’em Robots. In the first few seconds of the match, Saika swarmed Ki, the returning South Korean fighter.

However, once the two collected their energy in the clinch and split late in the first, the dynamic changed, with Ki hitting the cleaner strikes while Saika faded. While Saika survived the bombardment at the conclusion of the first, Ki quickly returned to the offense and dispatched his Japanese opponent early in the second.

DongHun Choi defeated Jiniushiyue by split decision ((29-28, 29-28, 29-28)

The flyweight competition began with a thrilling bout between last year’s runner-up, Jiniushiyue, and unbeaten South Korean prodigy DongHun Choi. The two young prospects spent the bulk of the battle exchanging at range, both showing speed and great variation, but neither was able to achieve consistent success or domination.

It was basically a back-and-forth affair, with Choi focusing on the head and legs and Jiniushiyue on the body. It went the distance, and when the tens and nines were totaled up, Choi emerged victorious in the split decision, keeping his unbeaten streak and progressing to the semifinals.

SuYoung You defeated Shohei Nose by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28)

You continued on what he came to do. South Korean fighters’ recent success by outgrappling returning Japanese adversary Shohei Nose for a unanimous decision victory. In the first two rounds, You was one step ahead of Nose in most scramble scenarios, making his way to advantageous positions and controlling the grapples. But Nose was the more aggressive and successful of the two men in the last round, but just as he was gaining momentum You gained the momentum from the start gaining him in the end.

Angad Bisht defeated John Dave Almanza by TKO (strikes) at 3:39 of Round 1

Angad Bisht basically pounded his way into the flyweight semifinals by steamrolling John Dave Almanza. Almanza attempted to instigate the action, but Bisht’s strength and force were too much for the 20-year-old Filipino.

Bisht dragged Almanza to the canvas, fought his way to a crucifix position, and unleashed a barrage of punches, eventually securing the stoppage. Bisht has now won five straight races, with each of the past four coming within the distance. He moves on to the next round, where he will face off against unbeaten South Korean Donghun Choi.
