Melvin Manhoef is Prepared for LEGEND 2 Invasion Tournament

MelvinMelvin "No Mercy" Manhoef will make his way back into the ring on November 8th in Russia for LEGEND Fight Show, as on their second event he'll participate in a -93kg tournament. Our friend Adenane from Staredown.nl caught up with Manhoef to get his thoughts on the upcoming fights. Interestingly enough, Manhoef has not stepped into a Kickboxing ring since January of 2012, as he's mainly been fighting MMA fights in the meantime.

It will be a welcome return to Kickboxing for Manhoef, known as one of the hardest punchers around and an absolute knockout artist within both the sports of Kickboxing and MMA. Here is a look at the tournament lineup for November 8th.

  • Kickboxing Tournament -93 kg
  • Zabit "Mowgli" Samedov vs. Melvin "No Mercy" Manhoef
  • Kickboxing Tournament -93 kg
  • Sahak "Hak" Parparyan vs. Pavel "Caiman" Zhuravlev

A Look at the Eclectic LEGEND: Invasion Fight Card

LEGEND

The mixture of Kickboxing and MMA has been around for a while now, with promoters trying to get a "best of both worlds" feel going, but I'm not sure that it has ever made much sense or been a great idea. With that being said, LEGEND Fight Show will be promoting their second event on November 8th and will feature both MMA and Kickboxing. It's obvious that they plan to spend some serious money on this event, as the main event of Alexander Emelianenko vs. Cro Cop must cost a lot and Badr Hari doesn't come cheap, either. The Light Heavyweight Kickboxing tournament is actually pretty awesome as well.

This is definitely something to keep your eye on.

UPDATE: Replaced Aleks Emelianenko.

Ruslan Karaev Announces Return to the Ring

Karaev

Look, there aren't many fighters out there that can take some time away from the ring and when they announce their return people get legitimately excited over. But then, there aren't many guys who are named Ruslan Karaev and are as exciting in the ring as he is. It's really difficult to explain the magnetism that Karaev possesses or why there are so many fans who are such huge Ruslan Karaev fans, but his return to the ring truly feels like a big deal.

Ruslan Karaev cut his teeth on the K-1 circuit for years, being an undersized Heavyweight who still held his own against all of the greats. His most notable fights were his ones against Badr Hari, with one of Badr's few losses being to Karaev before they had a few dramatic rematches. Karaev was known to be a part of the Golden Glory stable, which was in part why he was away from the ring for so long, as he did indeed suffer a bad knee injury, but also had a falling out with Golden Glory which kept him away from competition for a while. Now, finally, someone has found him and convinced him to return to the ring. KOK, based out of Moldova, will house Ruslan Karaev for his return bout and it is something of a big win for them.

Hell, this promo video that they released of Karaev is nothing short of amazing. I'm not kidding, it is really awesome.
