It is hard for me to even type out that Buakaw Por. Pramuk, K-1 MAX superstar who made his name in Japan has won a bout on American soil, but it happened last night. Sadly after not one but two reporter situations left us out in left field, we had to catch the event like the rest of the world did, and the event saw a lot of big names on the worldwide scene make a splash, a bang and no real whimpers. That is a godsend for a debut show, especially in a tough United States market for kickfighting.
The event saw not only Buakaw pick up a win, but Nathan "Carnage" Corbett, Artem "The Lion" Levin, Nieky Holzken and Baxter Humby also won in impressive fashion.
