Saenchai Wins at the Hoost Cup - Will He Go to K-1?

  • Published in Asia

Hoost CupThe Hoost Cup went down this weekend, featuring a few interesting fights, namely Saenchai's first "Kickboxing" fight, which has sparked all sorts of speculation as to what his future might be and if he might be headed to K-1 as his sponsor Yokkao has insinuated at on Twitter. It doesn't hurt that K-1 head Mr. Kim has been seen visiting with Stefania, the mastermind behind Yokkao Extreme, either.

The results are as follows;

Yoshihiro Sato (R3 - Dec.) Yuichiro "Jienotsu" Nagashima

Saenchai (R3 - Dec.) Yosuke Mizuochi

Souta Ichinohe (R1 - TKO) Ryuya Kusakabe

Shu Ogawa (R3 - Dec.) Hiroki

Hukashi (R3 - Dec.) Yuto Tsujide

Satoko Sasaki (R3 - Dec.) Maria Pantazi

Now, as for Saenchai and K-1, it is no secret that K-1 is looking to re-establish itself with a new set of stars, and who better than one of the most famous Thai fighters alive today in Saenchai? Saenchai's flashy style has won him tons of fans all over the world and it would make for a perfect and entertaining fit for K-1. Seeing as though Saenchai's natural weight class is around 60kg and his tendency to fight up in weight it wouldn't shock me to see him at 65kgs.

As for Saenchai's relationship with K-1 right now it is still too early to predict what will happen, but LiverKick has been able to confirm that there have been preliminary talks between the two parties, although it is not clear how far these talks have gone.

LiverKick.com Interview with Errol "The Bonecrusher" Zimmerman

  • Published in Interviews

Errol Zimmerman

They call him "The Bonecrusher" and that’s exactly what he does. But more than just being a skilled fighter, Errol Zimmerman is a devoted father and a man with a vision for his future.

In a sport known for it's brutality, vicious knees, kicks and brutal knock-outs, I am always pleased to find how kind and well grounded many of its practitioners are. One such meeting was my encounter with Errol Zimmerman. During our time together we talked Glory, MMA, family and everything in between.

He is undisputedly one of the best heavyweights in kickboxing today and having fought professionally for the last twelve years, Zimmerman's record is a veritable who's who in the sport. He has notable wins over Mourad Bouzidi, Teixeira, and Gerges, LeBanner and Rico Verhoeven. Even on those occasions when he didn't win, Errol demonstrated that he could go the distance with greats like Aerts, Schilt, Bonjasky and Badr Hari. He has even tried his hand at MMA, facing off against Minowa in 2008. Regarding this match, Zimmerman looks back fondly at this fight and states that he went into the match thinking he would easily overtake this opponent who was much smaller. After a defeat via toe hold Zimmerman muses that he learned that the size of the man is not always the main determining factor in victory.

GLORY Posts 283,000 Viewers on Spike TV for GLORY 24

  • Published in Glory

In what was supposed to be a triumphant return to Spike TV after being showcased on Bellator MMA's Dynamite 1 show GLORY instead found itself stuck in the morasses of Spike TV's endless runs of COPS and their ever-shifting time slot. The steady decline of GLORY ratings on Spike TV has been ongoing now with there being natural peaks and valleys. GLORY 13 still posted the highest ratings to date with the Welterweight tournament along with a heavyweight-heavy card featuring Rico Verhoeven against the legend Peter Aerts and Daniel Ghita against Errol Zimmerman. 

GLORY 21 showed a slight bump up from the previous show but then GLORY 22 being shown live at 4pm in the afternoon, dragging them down once again. GLORY 23 was and improvement, albeit still under 300,000 with 295,000 and now that SportsTVRatings has published Friday's ratings we can see that GLORY 24 saw a decrease from the previous show coming in at 283,000 viewers. 

While there hasn't been official word just yet, it is widely speculated that GLORY 24 was GLORY's last outing on Spike TV and if so they went out with a whimper instead of a bang. The show still delivered in solid action, although the main event did have a rather disappointing finish. Those kinds of things cannot be predicted. Jacoby/Barrett and the knockout-heavy heavyweight tournament delivered solid thrills there was just no one there to watch at 11pm eastern time, apparently.

Glory Unlocks Davit Kiria vs Kem Sitsongpeenong

  • Published in Glory

Glory Sports International are sticking to their promise and releasing full fights until the whole archive is available. Today we have Davit Kiria who has since become the Glory lightweight champion, against Thailand's Kem Sitsongpeenong. Glory rules are usually not easy for Thai's to adapt to since their main defense to punches is to clinch, but Kem is a great fighter and adapts well to make this a close fight.

If you watch the video all the way to the end seems there is a surprise extra fight where you get to see American Ky Hollenbeck make easy work of fellow countryman Micheal Corley.

Daniel Ghita Fighting Brian Douwes on May 12th

Apparently Sebastian van Thielan woke up one day and realized he was going to be fighting one of the scariest men in the world of combat sports, because he went to It's Showtime and demanded more money for the May 12th fight in Belgium. It really is hard to blame him, as there really was not much of a chance for van Thielan against Daniel Ghita. That is not a knock on van Thielan as much as it is high praise for Daniel Ghita who looks like a complete monster right now.

Stepping in for van Thielan is Brian Douwes, who was last seen defeating Dzevad Poturak in SuperKombat in February of this year stopping him in the third round.

It's Showtime issued a press release stating that van Thielan had signed a bout agreement and the amount of money was agreed upon a long time ago and then wished him luck in the rest of his career. It is safe to assume that van Thielan appearing on future It's Showtime cards just went out the window for van Thielan.

Watch Mark Miller Training in the Mass Suit @fightshark_com

  • Published in Video

Mark Miller has been training his ass off since making his big comeback in May knocking out Nikolaj Falin in just under 9 seconds. It was one of those moments that was almost too perfect to sum up. Since then he has been training just as hard waiting for his next fight to come together, and this training also included making a special appearance at Rampage Jackson's training camp as a sparring partner and coach for Rampage in his upcoming fight. Regardless of the whole, ridiculous "spygate" non-scandal that has been talked about for Rampage's training camp, a lot of actual work was done and Mark helped push Rampage to his limits.

Since then he has been training using the Mass Suit, something almost out of a science fiction movie that was made to help athletes maximize their workouts by providing extra tension. This video is of Mark working out with the suit and they interview him for some background information as well. [source]
