Joe Valtellini to Appear on Combate Americas, New MMA Reality Series

Valtellini

If you follow MMA you know just how difficult it has been to create new stars in the MMA world in the past few years. It looks like someone finally has a new idea and that new idea comes from one of the UFC's co-creators, Campbell McLaren along with reality television show pioneers Bunim/Murray productions for Combate Americas. Combate Americas is a new reality television show to air on mun2 which is aimed at the Hispanic audience. The show will pit eight Hispanic American fighters and various others against each other in a reality show format.

What does this have to do with Kickboxing? Canadian GLORY star Joseph Valtellini will be a guest on the series, along with Royce Gracie and Bellator's Eddie Alvarez, to help guide the fighters along. This is a pretty big deal for Valtellini who is starting to get some name recognition from being a fighter in GLORY, especially after that fight of the year with Nieky Holzken. The show premieres tonight at 10pm Eastern on mun2 and will be broadcast in Spanish with English subtitles.

Badr Hari Found Guilty, Sentenced to One and a Half Years in Prison

Badr

Badr Hari's legal troubles have been the talk of the last few years, turning what was the most promising Kickboxing career into a circus sideshow. Badr Hari was just seconds away from being the best Heavyweight Kickboxer in the world multiple times, but something was brewing inside of him that would ensure that his Kickboxing career would get derailed in a big way; his temper. Badr Hari and assault were not uncommon, but the latest case about an assault on Koen Everink was enough to finally get everyone's attention.

Badr Hari spent seven months in prison already due to the case and it has plagued his last few years, making his career the means to pay for his legal fees, being very secondary to his courtroom worries. Today was Badr Hari's sentencing in the Netherlands and it looks like, at least in part, justice was served in the case as Badr Hari was sentenced to serve 18 months in prison, six suspended. Due to him already serving seven months in the lead up to the case this means that Badr Hari will have to serve at least five months of this sentence.

As for if he'll serve the sentence, that is another thing. There are already talks of appeals in the process and that Badr Hari won't serve his prison sentence just yet due to the immediate appeal being filed. So Badr will have his day in court yet again in the near future.
