Eduard Irimia Explains that SUPERKOMBAT Fighters Can Fight for Anyone

  • Published in Kickboxing

SuperKombat

SUPERKOMBAT has an interesting stable of fighters at its disposal, guys like Benjamin Adegbuyi, Bogdan and Andrei Stoica, Catalin Morosanu, Raul Catinas and Sebastien Ciobanu. While lots of promoters force fighters into exclusive contracts, Eduard Irimia would like to make it clear that fighters under the employ of SUPERKOMBAT are not held to those kinds of restrictions. In fact, he encourages fighters under the SK banner to gain experience outside of the SUPERKOMBAT organization.

In the article, which was posted to Romanian luptatorii.ro, Irimia talks about his "gentlemen's agreement" with Pierre Andurand and GLORY, stating that they are not rivals and that he would be happy to send some of his fighters to GLORY. There is also a brief mention that Irimia would allow fighters to fight for K-1 as well.

Benjamin Adegbuyi vs. Jamal Ben Saddik Set for GLORY 14

  • Published in Glory

GLORY 14

GLORY held a press conference in Zagreb today with promoter Orsat Zovko, Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic and Remy Bonjasky to hype up the upcoming GLORY 14 Zagreb event. This was some standard fare stuff, but the big takeaway from the press conference was that they've announced a Heavyweight showdown that has some serious implications for a lot of fans out there. GLORY has announced that Benjamin Adegbuyi will make his debut for the promotion against Jamal Ben Saddik.

If that doesn't sound odd to you, let me break it down for you. Benjamin Adegbuyi is under contract to SuperKombat and is currently one of their best prospects. SuperKombat has been looking to get Adegbuyi some fights outside of their organization and made a plea to both K-1 and GLORY last year and it looks like they've come to a deal with GLORY. This is great for Adegbuyi who will be able to go up against top competition in GLORY, this in turn helps SuperKombat as one of their fighters is getting a big bump like this.

SUPERKOMBAT Teams with Festival dell'Oriente

  • Published in Kickboxing

SK

So SUPERKOMBAT's Eduard Irimia has decided to pay some homage to the world of traditional martial arts with this year's Festival dell'Oriente in Italy. Think of this festival as, well, a huge martial arts festival that will have over 5,000 martial artists from 113 countries competing for a world championship. How SUPERKOMBAT fits in is that on the third day of the festival they will host SUPERKOMBAT New Heroes: Asia vs. the Rest of the World.

The entire Festival dell'Oriente event is based around amateur competition and SUPERKOMBAT is looking to establish itself not only as a professional sports league, but one that is in tune with culture, martial arts and history. SUPERKOMBAT's New Heroes event will also be the only professional sporting event held at the Festival dell'Oriente and will be broadcast to all of SUPERKOMBAT's media partners around the world.

It's an interesting concept and it's cool to see SUPERKOMBAT being involved with something that is connected with the roots of the sport like that.
