SuperKombat World Grand Prix Final Rumored to be Moved to Germany

Originally slated for Angola in Africa, rumors are now pointing for SuperKombat's World Grand Prix Finals event to be moved to Germany instead. The move was reported by Kickfighter Magazine in Germany and it will be to ISS Dome in Dusseldorf, Germany. The ISS Dome can house between 12,000 - 13,000 fans according to the setup and seems like a large, bold move for SuperKombat. This seems in line with rumors of a possible new German investor for the promotion.

Other rumors include Danyo Ilunga fighting Andrei Stoica for his Cruiserweight championship along with possibly an 8-man heavyweight tournament on the show. We've yet to get a response from SuperKombat officials just yet on the situation but there has been a buzz among the SuperKombat faithful over the past few weeks of a "big announcement" coming soon and the move to Germany with an 8-man tournament featuring bigger, available names would be exactly that.

SuperKombat was best known for their 2011 season that saw them capitalize on the rather uncertain future in the world of kickboxing by bringing in some of the world's top talents for tournaments and bigger events. The landscape changed shortly thereafter with the formation of GLORY and exclusive or semi-exclusive contracts but SuperKombat kept themselves visible by breeding homegrown talent, which led to fighters like Benjamin Adegbuyi, Bogdan Stoica and Andrei Stoica making names for themselves internationally. 

With the future of kickboxing looking once again a bit shaky it is interesting to see that SuperKombat is looking to once again make big moves and do their part for keeping kickboxing as a viable sport for the near future.

Gabriel Varga vs. Serhiy Adamchuk Pulled from Dynamite 1

After rumors were abound yesterday that the GLORY Featherweight title fight between Gabriel Varga and Serhiy Adamchuk was off it has come out today that Adamchuk and Varga will indeed not meet at Bellator MMA Dynamite 1 on September 19th in the GLORY ring. While not one of the headline attractions it did help to bolster the GLORY portion of the card with a second title fight between the two Featherweights.

According to our bud Michael Stets GLORY officials informed him that the fight was indeed off but wouldn't clarify on where the injury was. From our own reports we've heard that the injury was on Varga's side, although the specifics of the injury remain unclear. Gabriel Varga was forced to pull out is all that we know. Here's hoping to a formidable bout replacing it.

VIDEO: A Return to Form for Petrosyan vs. Xu Yan

\When talking about Giorgio Petrosyan it is difficult to not devolved into hyperbole at times. Petrosyan is one of the most astounding talents that we've seen in the sport of kickboxing yet and back in 2013 we were reminded that he's human. Since Petrosyan's return to the ring from that knockout he's looked good but many had wondered if Petrosyan had perhaps lost a step or some confidence in himself. After last night's performance against Xu Yan at Hero Legends in China I believe that any of those doubts need to be washed away.

The Petrosyan that we saw last night was a return to form in many ways. Everything from his movement to how he would utilize angles to slip strikes and avoid Xu Yan's offense was exactly what we've come to know and expect from a Giorgio Petrosyan fight. Xu Yan is an absolutely formidable opponent and proved as perfect vehicle for Petrosyan to show just how "back" he really is. Anyway, without further ado, here is Giorgio Petrosyan vs. Xu Yan.
