SuperKombat Special Edition Results

SuperKombat held their final event of the year today in Italy in an event that mixed together MMA and kickboxing like we've been seeing for a long time now. The highlight of the MMA portion was the debut of Raul Catinas in MMA against Janusz Dylewski. Dylewski's record was, well, not good heading into this fight and he lost to Catinas as expected in the first round.

The kickboxing fights were exciting, your usual SuperKombat fare up until the main event. My god, what a cluster. Maurice Jackson is, for all intents and purposes, a complete fraud. The two times we've seen him fight this year have been in GLORY against Xavier Vigney and now against Morosanu and in both fights he showed zero skill, ability or defense. Simply hit Jackson and he's down. That is not a man who went into this year at 31-0-0, I don't care what ruleset he is claiming to have competed on. I'm 400-0-0 against my heavybag in my garage, maybe I should get a shot?

Jackson was disqualified (even though Morosanu hit him after the ref called the fight, but whatever, did the ref call the fight? Who knows) and fired right there in the ring. I'm not kidding. They fired him while he was turtled up in a ball on the mat complaining about being hit. I think he was complaining about being hit? This was just embarrassing. SuperKombat has brought in a good deal of Americans to their shows, some are out of shape, some are old, some are lacking in experience, but they all were established fighters who knew what it felt like to be hit and had some fight in them. Jackson had none of this.

A Look at SuperKombat Special Edition on Dec. 12th's Card

On Saturday, December 12th in Turin, Italy SuperKombat will return for a special event featuring some of their biggest stars. The twist? Both MMA and kickboxing fights will be on the card. If you were ask me the purpose of the event, I'd say to debut Raul Catinas in MMA. Catinas announced earlier this year that he would be switching from kickboxing to MMA and this will be his debut. 

Maurice Jackson has been slinging some trash in Morosanu's direction, which will only make the Romanian star more likely to knock him out, which should be a violent affair.

The event will be airing live via YouTube streaming on Saturday, so catch all of the action without worry.

GLORY 26 on Sunday Night Ratings Hurt by the NFL

GLORY 26 was perhaps one of the best combat sports shows of the year, that much shouldn't be surprising, just like the GLORY 26 replay having a tough time going against the NFL. Everything has a tough time going against the NFL these days. ESPN currently doesn't release any numbers outside of quarterly accumulations of viewers for their web-based ESPN3 platform, so it's nearly impossible to know how many people in the US were watching GLORY 26 live.

According to the numbers, GLORY 26's replay at 8pm on ESPN2 this Sunday pulled in 168,000 viewers, which isn't counting DVR numbers. That's a bit of a drop off from GLORY 25, which aired in a late night time slot almost 12 hours later. To contrast, GLORY 26 aired a full two days later and was competing against the NFL, which drew a monstrous 20 million viewers on Sunday night at the same time. 

It should be noted that MMAPayout has the number at 184,000, although it's not clear where this came from.

Once again, it's hard to really gauge these numbers right now, especially considering there wasn't much lead time for promoting the event. Hopefully ESPN and GLORY come to a longer term agreement for 2016 and get a time slot nailed down so that we can really see where the promotion stands on the network. Until then it is very gracious of ESPN to find a spot for the promotion while they negotiate.
