K-1 World Grand Prix -65kg Results: Kaew the Killer

  • Published in Asia

K-1 Japan held their K-1 World Grand Prix -65kg tournament last night in Japan in a night full of huge fights and a -65kg tournament that determined the best fighter in the weight class. Like a buzzsaw, Kaew Fairtex found himself holding steady as the king of the -65kg division, winning his second K-1 World Grand Prix in spectacular fashion. The night opened for him blasting through HIROYA, taking a hard-fought decision over Masaaki Noiri and then making mince-meat out of Ilias Bulaid's ribs in the second round of the finals with three blistering knee knockdowns.

Bulaid's path to the finals was impressive as well, with him taking out Chris Mauceri with body punches in the quarterfinals and taking a close extra round decision over Yamazaki to make it to the finals. Kaito Ozawa also learned that you just don't mess with Takeru. You just don't.

FFC Makes Its US Debut With a Bang: Brestovac Scores KO Victory

  • Published in Americas

(C) FFC

Last night in Daytona Beach, Florida FFC made their US debut with a joint MMA and kickboxing event. The kickboxing side was headlined by Croatian fighter, recently a GLORY title contender, Mladen Brestovac, taking on US fighter Steven Banks. Banks has been living and training out of Thailand of late, mostly competing in China, so the trip back to the US was a rarity for the fighter. It was a tough fight for both fighters but the signature head kick of Brestovac was simply too much for Banks, with it ending in the second round via TKO.

Super Bantamweight Bout: Tiffany van Soest def. Esma Hasshass by Unanimous Dec (Tiffany scored a perfectly timed right hand to get a 10-8 first round and was just a bit too experienced for Hasshass)

Middleweight Bout: Mike Lemaire def. Karl Roberson by Unanimous Dec (Lemaire scored a knockdown in round 1 and Roberson couldn't get into the fight after that point)

Kunlun Fight 43 Results: Kyshenko Bests Groenhart and Sitthichai Wins Big

  • Published in Asia

A part of the allure of China and Kunlun Fight in general is that they put together big fights on a regular basis and that sometimes they fly in the face of convention. Artur Kyshenko vs. Murthel Groenhart is exactly a fight like that. Groenhart is a top contender in GLORY, yet Kyshenko had come and gone through GLORY even though he's clearly one of the best in the world. Kunlun isn't afraid to put top fighters together and that's exactly what they did and Kyshenko and Groenhart went at it, the fight going to an extra round that ultimately saw Kyshenko's hand raised at the end. 

There were also two 70kg tournament brackets played out during the tournament, the 9th and 10th groups going at it. Sitthichai found himself victorious yet again, although Mohamed Mezouari did give him some trouble in the final of the tournament. On the other side, Kong Lingfeng made his way through Josh Aragon before steamrolling Kim Minsoo in the finals. Full results via CombatPress.

Oktagon/Bellator Kickboxing Results from Italy: Petrosyan Brothers Pick Up Victories

  • Published in Europe

Credit: Wagner Mela

Yesterday in Torino, Italy the yearly tradition that is the Oktagon event happened, this one the biggest yet, working with Venum Victory World Series and Bellator. The Bellator portion of the event will be at the bottom of the post if you are looking to avoid spoilers for the American Spike TV broadcast of the Bellator Kickboxing event on Friday, April 22nd. 

On the Victory World Series portion the Petrosyan brothers both walked away with decision victories over their respective opponents. For Giorgio he is getting back into his groove after his lengthy time away from the ring. In his last few fights he has looked good, but it would be hard to argue that there wasn't some ring rust. As he's taken more and more fights he has started to look more like his polished self. While his opponent did change for this fight multiple times, he still was able to handle Ravy Brunow and put on a Petrosyan-like performance. 

Venum Victory World Series/Oktagon

 

Giorgio Petrosyan (R3 - Decision) Ravy Brunow 

Chingis Allazov (R? - TKO) Wu Sihan 

Armen Petrosyan (R3 - Decision) Wang Tengyue 

Igor Bougaienko (R3 - Decision) Bruno Sousano 

Tarik Totts (R3 - Decision) Wang Shanwei 

Gloria Peritore (R3 - TKO) Li Mingrui 

~Bellator Spoilers Below~

As for the Bellator Kickboxing debut, there weren't a lot of surprises here, but there were some. It's interesting to note that the ISKA Championship bout between Karim Ghajji and Mustapha Haida was indeed on the Bellator card and there was a photo of Scott Coker standing with Ghajji, wearing the ISKA title. On their debut instead of focusing on their own branded titles they had a title fight for an outside governing body, which may set a precedent for future events. 

Melvin Manhoef fell to Alexandru Negrea, which is interesting considering Manhoef is challenging for Bellator's Middleweight Championship in MMA coming up and they've been keeping the rematch between Schilling and Manhoef on the back burner for a bigger show. I'd say it's now or never. Ghajji was able to defeat Haida in what looks to be the best fight of the night, one that I'm definitely looking forward to watching. Raymond Daniels delivered on his promise of a big knockout victory with a spinning back kick to the live to put away Francesco Morrica in short order. 

Kevin Ross entertained, as always, against Matteo Taccini and picked up a decision while Denise Kielholtz also went to a decision against Veronica Vernocchi. This show airs on Friday, April 22nd at 11pm Eastern time on Spike TV.

UPDATE: Ghajji won both the Bellator Kickboxing and ISKA 165lbs Championships.
