World MAXK-1's recent purchase was bound to lead to more announcements and speculation, and outside of the rumor of the K-1 World Grand Prix Final 16 in October, there has actually been another show scheduled for September, which is looking to be the K-1 World MAX Japan tournament finals for the 70kg weight class. This is the tournament that would usually happen around February, but due to K-1's problemed year, this tournament will be happening in September instead. We've already seen a few fights in this "tournament" and are set to see the rest of the tournament unfold on the 25th of September.

It will happen in Osaka, Japan on September 25 with a host of participants planned for the show; Albert Kraus, Yuya Yamamot, Yuichiro "Jienotsu" Nagashima, Yasuhiro Kido, Yuta Kubo, Kizaemon Saiga, Yuji Nashiro, KENTA, Takafumi Morita, YOSHI and Takeshi Yokoyama. As you can tell, a mix of -63kg fighters and 70kg fighters, so it won't strictly be the 70kg tournament, much like there were MAX/70kg fights at the -63kg tournament.

It should also be noted that if K-1 wanted to hold a World MAX tournament around that time it would be impossible for them, as It's Showtime is promoting their Fast and Furious 70kg MAX tournament on September 24th. It will be two incredible days for kickboxing for sure. [source]

In the world of kickboxing, most of the focus is on K-1. Over the years, K-1 has in some cases made itself synonymous with the sport of kickboxing. With the recent downtime of K-1, It's Showtime has stepped up and garnered much attention. SuperKombat and Fight Code have gotten a bit of exposure too. What about the smaller shows though? Every weekend there are many small kickboxing events around the world. It's not uncommon in kickboxing for a world class fighter to be fighting on a smaller event. Kickboxing, compared to boxing and MMA is very hard to keep track of and follow.

Now, onto the Tatneft Cup. The Tatneft Cup is a kickboxing tournament held every year in Kazan, Russia. The tournament is spread over many events, with four rounds of the tournament. The first four events are labelled "1/8 Final" and feature opening round tournament matches within the different weight divisions. The tournament advances on to two 1/4 Final events, one 1/2 Final event and the tournament final at the very last event.

In hindsight, the Tatneft Cup would be labelled a smaller show. In terms of who is taking part in the tournament though, it's anything but that. The 2010 Tatneft Cup saw names such as Artem Levin, Ismael Londt, Sergei Lascenko, Dzhabar Askerov and Dmitry Shakuta. The tournament also showcases some of Eastern Europe's top kickboxing talent, who are otherwise unknown to most kickboxing fans. Enriko Gogokhia, Alexander Stetsurenko, Armen Israelyan, Uranbek Esenkulov and Alexander Oleinik are all very good kickboxers who have yet to get any exposure on the big shows.

Enriko Gogokhia lost to Mike Zambidis in April but was very competitive in the fight. He recently lost another competitive fight to Dzhabar Askerov at the Tatneft Cup 2011 1/2 Final. At only 20 years old he is giving widely renowned kickboxers all they can handle. Good things can only come for him. Alexander Oleinik won a K-1 KOK Grand Prix tournament in Moldova in December, stopping Sem Braan, a top fighter in the first round and then winning his other two matches to win the tournament. He just beat Alexander Stetsurenko who I mentioned above, at the Tatneft Cup 2011 1/2 Final, advancing to the final. Oleinik is a very good fighter, and if he can make 77kg, could probably make some waves in It's Showtime.

The Tatneft Cup 2011 Final will probably be in October. The finals are Dzhabar Askerov vs. Maxim Smirnov (-70kg), Alexander Oleinik vs. Dmitry Shakuta (-80kg) and Dmitry Bezus vs. Hicham Ashalhi (+95kg).

The Tatneft Cup is like many in kickboxing, a great show but struggles to get any recognition within the kickboxing world. Kickboxing just isn't that popular and most shows will be lucky to get any mentions.

You can watch all matches from every Tatneft Cup from the Tatneft Arena website. It's in Russian, but a simple run-through Google Translate will make it easy to navigate. All the fights are action packed and showcase some great kickboxing talent that you might not have seen before.

Here's a great fight from the recent Tatneft Cup 2011 1/2 Final featuring Dzhabar Askerov taking on Enriko Gogokhia:

Ai Takahashi was supposed to meet Erika Kamimura in a super fight at next week's Shootboxing Girls S-Cup Japan Preliminary Tournament. Unfortunately, Takahashi suffered a fractured left orbital bone in training and won't be able to participate. However, Kamimura has not withdrawn from the event and instead has chosen to participate in the tournament. Shootboxing chairman Ceasar Takeshi said that he would like to reschedule the match under RISE rules on November 23rd's RISE event, but nothing official is in the works as of now. He also announced the other participants for the tournament, as well as the tournament draw. In the first round, Erika Kamimura will face off against Kanaka Oka, MMA fighters "WINDY" Tomomi Sunaba and Miyo Yoshida will face each other, 2009 Girls S-Cup Finalist and Valkyrie Featherweight Champion V.V Mei will face J-Girls 3rd ranked MINA and MMA fighters Seo Hee Ham and Emi Fujino round out the tournament.

The most likely outcome of the tournament would be a Kamimura vs Ham finals, however V.V Mei could pull off an upset, as she has done in the past, though I see it rather unlikely against Ham, who absolutely dominated V.V Mei in an MMA fight back at Jewels 15. Rena is still set to participate at the event, but has no opponent as of now.

If you follow kickboxing in Japan, it's been hard to avoid the female scene over the last couple years. With Shootboxing debuting its Girls S-Cup in 2009 and the popularity of Rena as a result, women's kickboxing, mainly in Shootboxing, has drawn a lot of attention towards itself. This fight was for the Shootboxing Women's Mini-flyweight Championship and was a rematch of the 2010 Girls S-Cup Finals in which Rena defeated Takahashi by split decision in an extension round. This fight was pretty even for 2 and a half rounds until Rena began to tire and Takahashi took over the fight completely. Add a comment

BasIf one thing can be said for the Dutch outside of their acumen for kickfighting, it is their loyalty and how forthcoming they can be. Bas Rutten's reputation is one of the few truly sterling reputations in the MMA world, he was able to retire as a legend and a hero and is better known by modern MMA fans as the "voice of PRIDE" and now co-host of Inside MMA on HDnet. When it comes down to it, Rutten is one of the few voices in the MMA world that comes from experience, often goes against what most of the media are selling, and also has a wealth of personality and knowledge to back up whatever he claims.

There is no secret that Rutten is close with a few members of the Golden Glory team, and sees a certain level of respect for what his fellow Dutch fighters are doing long after he has retired. So there is no surprise that when he finally decided to speak out about the Golden Glory purge from Zuffa, that it was going to be good. Bas made a rather long post to his Twitter (not a fan of 140 characters, I suppose) where he gives a very in depth rundown of how Golden Glory treat their fighters and explaining their business practices. Read it.

Some will ask, “Why does GG do business like this?” Well, it’s for their own protection of course, but it probably started because some checks from Japan started to bounce from some organizations. And if they didn’t bounce, the fighters would be able to get them cashed 6 or 8 weeks later. Since fighters want their money right away, and GG loves their fighters, they said “No problem, we pay the fighters from our OWN money, pay their trainers and sparring partners, and then when the money comes in, we simply deduct everything from the check that is paid, this way everybody get’s paid”. I know for a fact, 100% true, that they STILL need to get money from some organizations. The fighters got paid, but GG didn’t because they paid the fighters out of their own money. And some people say that they are crooks? Please explain this to me, who else, what management, give me one name, does this?
As a fighter, this would be something really cool, but even more for the trainers, because, ask trainers how many times they get paid by their fighters? You will be amazed with how many do NOT. I know fighters who became World champion in big organizations, even the UFC, and they never, yes, you read this good, NEVER, paid their trainer (OK, I might be wrong 1 or 2 times from the at least 10 or 15 times, but I am pretty sure I am not wrong). It sickens me and I would love to mention names, but out of respect of their coaches, I won’t. I hope those fighters read this, so they know that I know.
Anyway, these problems don’t exist at GG, at least not when the management is taking care of this.

If what Rutten is saying is true, it turns out that Golden Glory pays their fighters what they are owed by an organization, regardless of the promotions status, then waits for the money to come in from the promotion. That means in the K-1 fiasco that Golden Glory has fit the bill for their inability to pay up. He also talks at length about Alistair Overeem and the criticism he receives. [source]
