Sakuraba Injured at Dynamite

  • Published in K-1

I'm sure I'm not the only one here who holds Kazushi Sakuraba in high esteem.  One of my absolute favorite MMA fighters of all time, Saku is rightly hailed as the God of Japanese MMA.  But tonight was yet another hard to watch loss for the legend.

Facing Dream champion Marius Zaromskis, Sakuraba suffered an early ear injury that brought the fight to a close before it could get going.  The owner of one of the worst cauliflowered ears in all of MMA (and that covers a lot of ground), Sakuraba took a quick shot that popped the ear, causing it to bleed.  A few minutes later, he took another blow and immediately recoiled, holding his hand to his ear.  Doctors stepped in, and it looked like Sakuraba's ear had been partially torn away from his skull, resulting in a much needed stoppage. The stoppage was reminiscent of Kimbo Slice v. James Thompson on CBS, but unlike the Kimbo fight, we thankfully did not get any graphic footage of Sakuraba's ear.

Overall, it was a fight that didn't say much about Zarmoskis, and once again demonstarted that Sakuraba's time is done.  He's had a lot of loses recently, and sadly has looked old in those loses.  The lasting image of him here, with his hand covering his bloody ear, is not the way anyone wants to keep seeing this legend. 


Former K-1 Fighter Jorgen Kruth: UFC-Bound

  • Published in K-1

In a bit of a strange news tidbit, K-1 veteran Jorgen Kurth has apparently been added to the UFC's roster. Jorgen Kruth is very well-known Swedish Kickboxer and MMA fighter who serves as one of Sweden's biggest draws. This can be witnessed by the Rumble of the Kings events where Jorgen Kruth is the featured attraction for the promotion. The Rumble of the Kings shows are wildly popular and always draw a lot of international attention as well as local success, as is evident from this last event in November.

Long Watch: GLORY's Ivan Farneti Talks Business and Kickboxing

  • Published in Glory

Part of what makes GLORY such an interesting company is the guys who comprise said company. All of the people that we've spoken to which in the company are passionate and knowledgeable about the sport of kickboxing. They are fans, not just casual fans, but real fans. If you are looking for a fan, look no further than GLORY's Ivan Farneti. You can find him on Twitter or Facebook most of the time talking about combat sports -- and he's nowhere near just a casual fan -- he hangs with the most hardcore of us. In fact, I'd go as far as to call Ivan a kickboxing nerd. It's okay, he's in good company. 

Watch this uber-long interview with Ivan to learn more about him, his love for the sport, how he got started with the organization as well as some of the big picture, vision stuff for GLORY. For those that grow tired of hearing Dana White's brand of vitriol, listen to Ivan pretty much say everything you want to hear and really mean it.

Report: Andy Souwer Suffers Compressed Nerve in Leg

  • Published in K-1

Andy SouwerAndy Souwer put forth a valiant display this weekend at the It's Showtime Fast and Furious 70kg MAX tournament, making it to the semi-finals against Artur Kyshenko before losing the fight. Souwer and Kyshenko were easily the two favorites going into the tournament this weekend, with Robin Van Roosmalen as a possible spoiler in the mix who did exactly that by defeating Kyshenko in the Finals.

There were reports of Andy Souwer's condition post-fight claiming that he had possibly fracturing his shin bone, which to many of us made Souwer look tougher than nails as he was competing on a severe injury and still didn't look bad. There was even video of Souwer being strapped into a stretcher and being taken from the arena (8:00 in) to confirm the story.

We are now told this afternoon that the extent of Souwer's injuries are not as bad as originally believed. Instead of a fracturing shin he suffered a compacted or trapped nerve in his shin. Basically, if you've ever had a pinched nerve before think of it like that, only this happens from an outside force pushing on a nerve so hard that it becomes compacted. Your nerves serve as the communication device between your nervous system and your brain. They recognize things like hot, cold and pain, so if they become compacted they are only reporting one thing to your brain; pain. Intense, overwhelming pain.

So if Andy Souwer looked wobbly in the third round, the fact that he was even able to stand was amazing, never mind fight by throwing kicks and knees. Hats off to Andy Souwer who should be back up and running within three weeks.


Brock Lesnar Wants Pat Barry to Retire

  • Published in Glory


Recently fans got to witness Pat Barry make his way back into professional Kickboxing at GLORY 16 where he was brutally knocked out by African slugger Zack Mwekassa. If we are honest with ourselves, we saw it coming from a mile away after Barry's last few UFC fights, but it still came as a shock. In a way it was brutal. Just brutal. To the point where I'm not sure that I want to see Pat Barry step into the ring again if it is going to end like this. His UFC career didn't get tough because of wrestling and submissions, it got tough because he started getting knocked out.

Pat Barry has some friends, though, scary friends. Who could be scarier than former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar? Brock Lesnar, apparently, considers Pat to be a close friend of his and strongly wants Pat Barry to retire, so much so that he reached out to Dana White for help in getting Pat Barry to retire. Dana White, of course, felt he had no place in the matter as Pat isn't one of the UFC's famed "millionaires" that they've made, nor does he have a strong relationship with Dana White, plus he's moved on to work for GLORY. Dana White implied that it was up to Pat's friends, family and for State Athletic Commissions to make Pat Barry retire.

Kind of a sticky spot for GLORY right now, huh? [source]
