Watch Cro Cop vs. Jerome Le Banner From 1996

  • Published in Video

With the talk of a possible [fake] showdown between Jerome Le Banner and Mirko Cro Cop there is a reason why such a bout would be a big deal in Japan, even if it were simply professional wrestling. It would be a rematch, of sorts, from 1996 where the two younger men met in the K-1 ring. Both men would go on to be wildly successful in Japan and become gigantic stars. Cro Cop became one of the biggest names in PRIDE FC and JLB became a K-1 legend.

So while it is not official yet, the thought of both men in the ring together again, even if not real, is exciting and would be a great moment for fans across the world. So go ahead and check out their first fight.

Watch Part 1 of Badr Hari's "Profile" From Dutch TV

  • Published in Video

When I heard about this "profile" show, I made sure to speak to one of the producers, and was sad to find out it would not be found anywhere anytime soon with english subtitles. Thankfully, someone out there (YouTube user Undubately) decided to do the dirty work and go through subtitling the interview. This is just part one of three, but the other parts will soon follow! This is really top notch stuff, so watch it already. [source]

Warman's Kickfighting Show #57: Fight Code, SuperKombat and K-1

  • Published in Interviews

Another week and another episode of Warman's Kickfighting show where I join Steven Wright to discuss the goings on of the worlds of kickboxing and muay thai. This week we look at the results from this past weekend's Fight Code event as well as the fallout from it, including Fight Code organizing two rematches from the show and the one disqualification being overturned. We also go into depth on SuperKombat's last GP event which did not feature the same level of talent as per the last few shows but still delivered on a few different levels, as well as their business model going forward and why it is vital for them to get their act together.

And of course, you can't talk about the last week in the Kickboxing world without talking about K-1. This means talk about the show being cancelled, possibly postponed and the news finally being released that there are many potential buyers for the company but Master Ishii seems to be the lone force holding the company back. As always, the show can be downloaded on iTunes (search: LordGaul) or on the PodBean site. As always, I'm going to embed it, but there does seem to be a timeout with these files, so if it isn't working make sure to go and download it yourself.

Watch Yuichiro Nagashima Celebrate Post-Fight at Dynamite!!

  • Published in K-1

We all love honesty when it comes in our favorite fighters; a straight-forward attitude, humility and admittance that they are indeed mortal just like you and me. They get scared. Well, most fighters do, not everybody is Alistair Overeem, who knows when he is walking to the ring that it will just be a matter of time before someone lays in a pool of their own blood before him. Going into his Mixed Rules bout at Dynamite!! against Shinya Aoki, Yuichiro Nagashima knew what he had to do; he had to get out there and knock Aoki out in the first round. Aoki used his brain to avoid contact with Nagashima all throughout the K-1 rules round, which lead into the MMA rules portion of the bout, where Nagashima was in deep, deep water against one of the best MMA grapplers in the world. After the boisterous, over-the-top entrance from Nagashima, to lose would be a shame, but when you saw the look on his face and the concern of his trainers going into the second round, you saw a defeated man.

The flying knee that connected not only shocked Aoki, but it shocked Nagashima as well. Watch this video of Nagashima as he heads to the back after the bout and watch him coming down from his adrenaline rush and just how lucky he knows he was for scoring that knockout. He even vows to never, ever do MMA again and that he was "so scared!"

Watch the GLORY 10 Weigh-Ins While You Prepare For Tonight

  • Published in Glory

GLORY

Sometimes the fact that LiverKick is a small organization can be felt, like when I get the flu right before a big event and it compromises how quickly I can get stuff up. Such is life, right? Seriously, LiverKick is a small operation. Anyway. GLORY just recently put up the GLORY 10 weigh-in video on their website, so while we have approximately two hours until showtime you might as well check out the GLORY 10 weigh-ins and get all pumped up for the Middleweight tournament!

Dynamite!! Live Results

  • Published in Asia

Dynamite 2010Dynamite!! 2010 is currently on air at HDNet.  As it airs, we'll be updating all the results here.  A note - the HDNet broadcast is actually on a bit of a delay from the live action, but we'll be giving results as they air on HDNet.

#1 - BOB SAPP v. SHINICHI SUZUKAWA - No Fight

This fight was cancelled shortly before the event started because Sapp pulled out.  Which I guess is a new personal record for Sapp and how quickly he can get the fight over with.  No slap of Inoki fighting spirit for the Beast tonight.

#2 - ANDY OLOGUN def. KATSUAKI FURUKI - Unanimous Decision

A pretty close fight, with Ologun hurting Furuki at the very end of the 3rd and maybe winning it there.

#3 - KAZUYUKI MIYATA def. CAOL UNO - Unanimous Decision

Miyata does his thing, outwrestling Uno to a win.  He also threw a nice suplex in round 3, so that's something.

#4 - HIDEO TOKORO def. KAZUHISA WATANABE - Armbar, Rd. 3

This was ALL Tokoro, who tried roughly 274 submissions before finally locking one all the way in and tapping Watanabe.  The MAX fighter was spirited as he always is, but didn't have much to offer except energy.

#5 - HIROSHI IZUMI def. MINOWAMAN - Ground & Pound, Rd. 3

Yeesh, not a great showing here from Minowaman.  An all around somewhat lackluster fight, with Minowaman totally controlled and ineffective.  Remember folks - Minowaman vs. Super Hulks?  Good.  Minowaman vs. regular opponents?  Not entertaining.

#6 - SERGEI KHARITONOV def. TATSUYA MIZUNO - KO, Rd. 1

True to Kharitonov's new K-1 aspirations, this was all standing, with Kharitonov stalking Mizuno before crushing him with nasty punches and a kneesto put Mizuno out cold.  Brutal.

#7 - GEGARD MOUSASI def. KYOTARO - Unanimous Decision

Upset win for Mousasi here as he takes out his 2nd K-1 Japanese superstar.  Mousasi dropped him in the 2nd to take the win.  And thanks for the shout out Voice - right back at you!

#8 - YUICHIRO NAGASHIMA def. SHINYA AOKI - KO, Rd. 2

After an awkward first round of Aoki stalling, Nagashima landed a hard knee to open the MMA round, knocking the Dream champion out.  Very impressive showing from Nagashima, and a great redemption for K-1.

#9 - ALISTAIR OVEREEM def. TODD DUFFEE - KO, Rd. 1

It took The Reem just 19 seconds to stop former UFC fighter Todd Duffee with a barrage of blows, ending the American's night quickly, and earning the new Interim Dream Heavyweight title in the process.

#10 - SATOSHI ISHII def. JEROME LE BANNER - Unanimous Decision

Good fight here, but Ishii was able to control much of the action, turning in an impressive 3rd round where he almost finished JLB with a kimura.  Fans booed the decision, but it seemed right to me.

#11 - MARIUS ZAROMSKIS def. KAZUSHI SAKURABA - Doctor Stoppage, Rd. 1

With Sakuraba, you knew this could get ugly, and that's sadly what happened.  Saku's massively caulifowered ear first popped, then partly tore away from his skull, forcing the doctors to stop the fight before it even got started.

#12 - TETSUYA YAMATO v. AKIYO "WICKY" NISHURA - Majority Draw

This K-1 rules fight was an entertaining, if somewhat sloppy affair.  Both men were even going into the 3rd round, and for this fight there were no extension rounds.  Yamato connected late in the round, but it wasn't enough to get the win.  One judge gave the bout to Yamato, with the other two ruling it a draw.

#13 - JASON HIGH def. HAYATO "MACH" SAKURAI - Split Decision

I have to be honest, this was a technically sound fight with a good ending, but 13 fights in, it wasn't all that memorable.  High gets the split decision win using his superior wrestling.

#14 - TATSUYA KAWAJIRI def. JOSH THOMSON - Unanimous Decision

Thomson tried, but this was all Kawajiri.  The Crusher turned in one of his career best performances, dominating Thomson in a way very few have ever done before and taking the definitive decision

#15 - HIROYUKI TAKAYA def. BIBIANO FERNANDES - Unanimous Decision

A good contest in the main event between two very evenly matched fighters, but it was Takaya who consistently pushed ahead just a bit, winning exchanges on the feet and on the ground to get the decision win.  Takaya now claims the Dream FW championship to cap off a great 2010 for the fighter.
