Shoot the Shooto 2011 Preview: Dynamite!!! 2008

K-1's Dynamite!!! events often feature fights that pit MMA fighters against K-1 fighters in either discipline, often with expected results. However, Dynamite!!! 2008 resulted in a clean sweep for MMA, with Alistar Overeem's huge upset over Badr Hari, Tatsuya Kawajiri and Gegard Mousasi taking wins over fading Japanese kickboxing legends Kozo Takeda and Musashi, respectively, and Minowaman's quick win over Errol Zimmerman. The night also held three other bouts featuring fighters who have made a name for themselves in kickboxing and MMA, with Melvin Manhoef battling Mark Hunt, Mirko Crocop taking on Hong-man Choi and Semmy Schilt facing Mighty Mo, all under MMA rules.

Watch StillWill's K-1: Imagine and Pick Your Jaw Up off the Ground @StillW1ll

Look, there are a lot of people out there who make fine highlight reels in the realm of combat sports, people who do their best to put together cohesive and exciting highlight packages of their favorite fighters, promotions, sports or anything else they can think of. There reaches a certain point where you want more, and I think that StillWill -- Will Prescott -- currently does the best work. Not only the best, but the work with the most impact. There is no comparison, art is art and everything else is everything else. Will's videos started out like everything else, but over the past year they have evolved into much more and provide emotional impact and go places you don't think they would go. That being said, watch his latest K-1 video and try not to make a fool of yourself, pick up your jaw and wipe your mouth.

Video: Aziz Kallah vs. Alim Nabiev - Future of the Sport

Aziz Kallah has been hailed as one of the future figures of kickboxing by Steven Wright and October 22nd just seemed like another fight for him. No one knew his opponent, everyone figured it would be a walk in the park for the Lucien Carbin pupil. It turned out to be anything but a walk in the park. Kallah just couldn't get off at all against the tall Russian opponent, Alim Nabiev, who used his height to throw Kallah off. Nabiev looked like a mixture of Yoshihiro Sato and Artem Levin in the ring, blasting step-up knees at Kallah and took a clear decision.

Not only did Nabiev beat a fighter who is supposed to be the next big thing, he did at at 17 years old. Yes, I repeat, Alim Nabiev is 17 years old. It's amazing how he already has such a great skillset at such a young age, even younger than Kallah. With this win, Nabiev really cemented himself as one to look out for in the future. I have a feeling we'll be hearing his name more in years to come. Who said kickboxing is dead?
