Lion Fight 12 Results and Highlights

Lion Fight

Well, just like we all predicted, Lion Fight 12 made a big impression on AXS TV with some really entertaining fights tonight. We saw a Welterweight Champion crowned, we got to see Tiffany Van Soest once again show why she's one of the best female fighters we've ever seen and hell, we even got to see an elbow KO. Elbow KOs are a thing of beauty and somewhat unique to the sport of Muay Thai, which makes it a thing of beauty when it happens.

So here are the quick and dirty results as well as a highlight from AXS TV.

  • Lion Fight Welterweight Title: Fabio Pinca (R5 - UD) Malaipet
  • Tiffany Van Soest (R3 - TKO) Magali Foroni
  • Jason Andrada (R5 - KO) Mohammed Lemjerdine
  • Nick Chasteen (R5 - UD) Chris Culley
  • Stephen Richards (R5 - UD) Glen Spencer Jr.
  • Anthony Castrejon (R1 - KO) Miguel Rosales


GLORY 11 Chicago Live Results and Discussion


GLORY 11 Chicago goes down tonight, live on Spike TV at 9pm Eastern in the United States, or you can watch the PPV stream live on LiverKick if you are out of the US! This is a huge deal for Kickboxing and a huge card to go along with the occasion. Essentially, this is not something that you want to miss. So join us tonight at 9pm Eastern time to watch GLORY 11 live. I'll be tweeting from @LiverKickdotcom and will be updating Facebook as well, but feel free to discuss the event within the comments section as well.

The GLORY 11 undercard will NOT be airing live, but instead GLORY will be posting it in two weeks to their website for free, much like they did with GLORY 10.



  • Heavyweight Finals: Rico Verhoeven (R3 - Dec.) Daniel Ghita -- Wow, just wow. Tremendous action from both men, back and forth. Every round was insanely close, with Ghita probably winning the first round and Rico taking the 2nd and 3rd. Tremendous action, with Rico looking better than he's ever looked before.
  • Tyrone Spong (R2 - TKO) Nathan Corbett -- Wow, both guys just came in looking to lay some heavy leather. Lots of body work with Tyrone's body punches visibly doing damage to Corbett in R1. Spong just absolutely floored Carnage in R2, but Carnage got back up. A second knockdown was all that she wrote, as the ref stopped the bout. Wow, Tyrone.
  • Joseph Valtellini (R3 - TKO) Karim Ghajji -- Really exciting fight between both guys. Very solid, technical affair that saw both men exchanging and looking extremely solid. Joe came up with a rather incredible series of strikes in R3 to put Ghajji down. Great, great fight.
  • Heavyweight Reserve Bout: Errol Zimmerman (R3 - TKO) Hesdy Gerges -- Errol Zimmerman came into the fight in great shape and looked focused, which is all you can ask for from Errol. He knocked Gerges down hard, but Gerges fought back to his feet. Round 2 saw Gerges control most of the ring and action, but Zimmerman flattened him in R3, only for him to fight back to his feet. Zimmerman scored one last knockdown and made a huge statement.
  • Heavyweight Tournament: Daniel Ghita (R1 - KO) Anderson Silva -- Wow, Daniel Ghita is super focused with his new trainer. Ghita was favoring using his hands over his kicks, but set up the right hook with a left body kick that put Braddock down for the count. The finals is Ghita vs. Rico!
  • Heavyweight Tournament: Rico Verhoeven (R3 - Majority Decision) Gokhan Saki -- Saki fans are going to be really upset over this one, but GLORY's flash knockdown rule played a huge factor here, and yes, it was a knockdown. Rico knocked Saki down in R1 almost immediately, with Saki protesting and threatening the ref (which he should have been DQ'd for, honestly). Rico controlled the rest of the round. Rico controlled R2 for the most part, but Saki landed some huge shots near the end which didn't put Rico down. Rico should have, but he didn't. You could argue that Saki gets that round because of that. Then R3 was mostly controlled by Rico, gaining him the HUGE win. What an upset. Very proud of how much Verhoeven has advanced.

GLORY 10 Live Results and Updates


Tonight is the big night! GLORY 10 Los Angeles goes down tonight, starting at 9:30 Eastern time with three free fights on GLORY's Facebook page. LiverKick will not only be providing live coverage, but if want to check it out live, why not order the PPV directly from us for $20? You get to watch all of the action go down live and get to support GLORY as well as LiverKick. So don't forget to tune in live with us.

Here is the televised card for tonight.

  • Tournament Finals: Joe Schilling (Ext.R - Unanimous Decision) Artem Levin - Wow, this fight just had it all. It was super dramatic as Levin fought like Levin fights in R1 and things were looking like Joe might have some problems, then in the second round Joe landed an amazing overhand right followed by a knee that almost knocked Levin out. Levin beat the count and held on. Then in the third round Levin scored a few great shots on Joe, but Joe kept in the fight. It was ruled a draw and both men came back out, exhausted, for a fourth round, with it being dead even throughout until Joe landed a big right hand that scored a flash knockdown on Levin before he let the clock run out and Joe Schilling is your new Middleweight Champion of the world. Wow!
  • Robin van Roosmalen (R3 - Unanimous Decision) Shemsi Beqiri - Great back and forth fight between the two, exactly what you would expect from them. Robin was landing some amazing blows, but Shemsi was always in the fight. This was the kind of fight that sells a sport to newer fans.
  • Davit Kiria (R3 - Unanimous Decision) Murthel Groenhart - Very close brawl between the two, but Kiria was pushing the action more and landed the better shots, getting him the super close decision victory.
  • Reserve Bout: Wayne Barrett (R1 - TKO) Rob Plotkin - Well damn, Wayne Barrett just cleaned Rob Plotkin's clock with a right hand followed by a knee that put him down once, then a right hand that was two knockdowns and it for him.
  • Tournament: Joe Schilling (R3 - Unanimous Decision) Kengo Shimizu - My god, Joe put a serious beating on Shimizu. I mean, tons of clinch knees and big kicks from Joe, as well as letting his hands go. Shimizu was a tough guy, just would not go down.
  • Tournament: Artem Levin (R3 - Unanimous Decision) Jason Wilnis - Wilnis put up a good fight, but Levin just had the better angles and was connecting throughout the fight. It was an Artem Levin clinic, basically.
  • Facebook Prelims:
  • Brian Collette (R3 - Unanimous Decision) Randy Blake - This fight was just ugly as hell. Lots of clinching, lots of trying to counter, yeah.
  • Ky Hollenbeck (R3 - Unanimous Decision) Albert Kraus - You really gotta give it up to Ky Hollenbeck who just applied constant pressure on Kraus and had Kraus backing up for all three rounds. Kraus did have a great tan, though.
  • Hinata Watanabe (R3 - TKO - leg kicks) Johann Fauveau - This fight was all HINATA, as HINATA thundered Fauveau with leg kicks throughout the fight, landing them with ease. He scored what should have been a down in R1, but it didn't matter as HINATA kept pushing until he had Fauveau in the corner, bent over, trying to cover up, while HINATA was continuing to assault. Fauveau's corner was forced to throw in the towel in the third round.

Lion Fight 11 Results: Cyborg Crushes, Yamato and Ross Wow, Nampon Blahs.

Lion Fight

Forgive me for not posting results last night, but, you know, this was GTA V week and I do have a fiance who enjoys my company once in a while. These are the things that happen in life, alright? Last night did play host to Lion Fight 11, live from Las Vegas on AXS TV and saw a solid night of action with a few strange caveats here and there. As always, Lion Fight delivers in the end, but I might suggest that I understand that they want to include fighters from Thailand, but next time, be more selective. Nampon is a fine fighter, but last night was a pretty awful display and all for a fighter who has virtually no hype surrounding him.

The fight that most of us were looking forward to, Kevin Ross vs. Tetsuya Yamato delivered just like we thought it would, as they went all-out for the entire fight before the judges were forced to come to a decision and chose Yamato. I can see the arguments for Ross winning the fight, as he looked strong early and finished strong, but the rest of the fight saw Yamato really turn up the heat and deliver the better blows. It's hard to say that Ross walks away a "loser" in this one because he put his all into the fight and looked strong, although some fans might not know just how good Tetsuya Yamato really is. Yamato is really good, there is no shame in putting on a close fight with him.

Cosmo vs. Nampon was very much of a fight that was just "there" and that saw Nampon just show nothing of real value against Cosmo. The other feature bout of the evening saw Cris "Cyborg" Justino (formerly Santos) run roughshod over Jennifer Colomb, who filled in on late notice. Colomb is a tough fighter, but short notice is short notice.

  • Cosmo Alexander (R5 - UD) Nampon
  • Cris Justino (R3 - TKO) Jennifer Colomb
  • Tetsuya Yamoto (R5 - SD) Kevin Ross
  • Malaipet (R1 - TKO) Caio Uruguai
  • Angela Hill (R5 - UD) Monique Travis
  • Scott Leffler (R5 - UD) Jose Palacios
