Gokhan Turkyilmaz makes his international return, faces Japanese veteran Koji Takeuchi at Pro FC 10

Integrated MMA lightweight Gokhan Turkyilmaz will make his international return when he takes on Japanese veteran Koji Takeuchi at Pro FC 10 on May 9 in Taiwan. Turkyilmaz (12-12 MMA, 1-0 Pro FC) will be looking to reverse a two-fight skid after local losses to Isaac Tisdell and J.J. Van Aswegen. ‘Pitbull’ made his debut for the promotion at their eighth event where he outpointed Seok Mo Kim.

Koji Takeuchi (7-10-5 MMA, 1-0 Pro FC) is a Shooto veteran and has been fighting professionally since 1999. Like Turkyilmaz, the forty year-old will be eager to dig himself out of a two-fight hole on the night. Takeuchi made a successful Pro FC debut just under 12 months ago when he submitted Hyung Seok Lee.
