LiverKick Podcast Revival: December 15th, 2016 GLORY: Collision Fallout and More

So. It's been a while since LiverKick has done a podcast, hasn't it? In fact, I don't even want to know how long it's been. That's okay, though, because we made the conscious decision to jump right back into it and the fallout from GLORY: Collision seemed like the perfect opportunity for that. All it took was near-perfect timing for Jay and I, a time when our kids were asleep and not being crazy, then we were a go. 

There was a lot to talk about, that's for sure. The topics range from Badr Hari vs. Rico fallout, talk about the logistics, fights and disappointments of GLORY: Collision, GLORY's future in 2017 and less of a focus on the United States and then veered into other European kickboxing topics like SuperKombat's new television deal, Enfusion Live's push for top-level Thais but having a broadcast platform that nobody wants to pay for and then we get to Asia. Both Jay and myself miss Japanese kickboxing, but try to give Chinese kickboxing a chance, so we try to put our finger on what exactly Kunlun is missing to make it recapture that feel that old K-1 had.

This, of course, sent us down the rabbit hole. The strict runsheet that I had keeping us to an hour was thrown out the window and we delved into why old K-1 was so great, how their production was an important part to creating the big-match feels and everything in between. This includes talking about K-1 Japan being the best pound-for-pound promotion in the world, but still not old K-1 and even a brief reprieve into Japanese pro wrestling history to explain why KNOCK OUT's parent company, Bushi Road, could, in fact, be the savior of Japanese kickboxing after they were able to rehabilitate New Japan Pro Wrestling. 

We had fun, so we hope that you have fun listening.

Kickboxing Roundtable April 14th - GLORY 29 and Bellator Kickboxing Preview

This weekend is a big one for kickboxing and combat sports as GLORY 29 comes at you live on Saturday afternoon and Bellator Kickboxing makes its debut on Saturday in Italy. The Bellator event won't be airing until next week on Spike TV, but the MMA portion will be airing on Saturday. That doesn't mean that we can't talk about it, right?

MMAMania.com's Michael Stets and myself have been talking about putting together some sort of podcast thing for a while now, usually trying to include BloodyElbow's Fraser Coffeen and John O'Regan, but trying to organize four busy schedules has led to it never happening. Last night Stets decided to set things up and I was around, so this meeting of the minds is setting up this weekend's events with a lot of talk and insight into what to expect from GLORY 29 and Bellator Kickboxing.
