There is something to be said for SuperKombat completing their 2011 World Grand Prix series and doing so with a bang. It was an entertaining card that they put out with a lot of fights tailor-made for local fans in Germany as well as their hometown base of Romania. The final four fighters in their tournament were a whose who of top fighters in the Heavyweight division, with Ismael Londt, Erhan Deniz, Sergei Laschenko and Pavel Zhuravlev. Not the biggest names in the world, but for up-and-comers ready to take that next step this is as good as a tournament as you could wish for.
