K-1 China vs. Japan Results From Feb. 1st

On February 1st (this morning for the West) in China K-1 held their 409th event. Much like the previous K-1 event in China, K-1 China vs. USA, this event saw a stable of Chinese fighters take on a few Japanese fighters for national honor and pride. What ensued was a series of fun fights that showed both a lot of promise and some disappointments. 

It's clear to see that the Chinese fighters have been working hard to adapt to the K-1 rules, but when a relatively famous fighter like Ba Te Er in China steps into the K-1 ring there are expectations that he'll be a bit more experienced in the ruleset. Er was proof that traditional martial arts can indeed be valuable in a professional kickboxing setting, but he was missing one key ingredient from the equation, which was the "boxing" part of kickboxing. 

Overall another fun events from K-1 and it's interesting to see what kind of spoils China will continue to net them in the future. If you missed it you can check out the archived fights here.

Video: Simon Marcus gets Annihilated by China's Fang Bian

Canada's Simon Marcus fought in China on the WKF world championship card on Jan 31 against China's Fang Bian and lets say that Marcus did not have a good day. It seems as though Joe Schilling exposed a weakness in Simon's boxing defense, mainly due to the way he pressures forwards so hard with his hands down. This fight shows us that Simon has still not changed the mistakes that got him KO'd before, but there is no denying how tough he is still getting up after being knocked down at least 4 times. Of course Fang Bian is super happy and celebrates by flinging himself on the ground and flailing, while Marcus is upset but does little push ups... slightly awkward situations at the end.

Another Insanely Stacked Card for Kunlun on February 1st

It's hard to argue with the sheer quality of the Kunlun cards that they are putting together in China, the next of which goes down on February 1st in Guangzhou. Kunlun 19 is shaping up to be pretty fascinating with the finals of their 70kg tournament taking place and more on their Heavyweight tournament. I'm not sure that Kunlun will be sustainable into the future, but have fun with it while it lasts because we sure as hell will be.

Here's a breakdown of what they'll be offering. The list of name talent is long, including Konstantin Ghulov, mighty Mo, Hesdy Gerges, Ashwin Balrak, Andrei Herasimchuk, Marat Grigorian, Aikpracha Meenayothin, Davit Kirita, Artur Kyshenko and more. I mean, wow. It's also fair to note that Kunlun is making an effort at getting their stuff out there in English, although it's a bit rough around the edges.
