Seo Hee Ham scores vicious KO over Jinh Yu Frey at ROAD FC 45

Seo Hee Ham knocked out Jinh Yu Frey at ROAD FC 45.

Seo Hee Ham kicked off the holiday weekend with the best performance of her career.

Ham, the reigning ROAD FC women’s atomweight champion, scored a devastating first-round knockout of Invicta FC contender Jinh Yu Frey to successfully defend her title at ROAD FC 45 in Seoul, South Korea. A former UFC strawweight, Ham has flourished since dropping back down to 105 pounds, and that run continued Saturday when she downed Frey with a wicked left hand at the Grand Hilton Convention Center. The official time of the stoppage was 4:40 of the opening round.

Watch Ham’s finishing sequence below.

Ham (17-8) has now won back-to-back contests by KO/TKO at atomweight since departing the UFC’s 115-pound ranks with a 1-3 Octagon record.

Frey (6-3), meanwhile, sees her run of bad luck in championship fights continue. The 32-year-old American suffered a defeat in her bid for the Invicta FC atomweight title in Sept. 2016 when her contest against Ayaka Hamasaki was controversially stopped due to a second-round cut.

The full fight video of Ham vs. Frey (and the entirety of ROAD FC 45) can be seen below, as well as Frey’s post-fight statement.
