Hoost Vs. Aerts WKO The Kumite Energy Main Fights Announced

Earlier this month we announced that Ernesto Hoost would be Fighting Peter Aerts for the sixth time in  Osaka, Japan on October 19th. Hoost has won 3 of the 5, so this gives Aerts the chance to tie it up for good, since i doubt they will be fighting for a seventh time, but then again I never expected to see this fight again.

The rest of the WKO: The Kumite Energy main fights have now been announced and we get to see more of the old K-1 names we grew to love. Both Stephan Leko and Chalid "Die Faust" Arrab will be fighting. Leko has been fighting quite frequently lately but having no success at all, he is on a 6 fight losing streak, with the last 5 losses all coming by KO or TKO. If he can't turn it around this fight, we would have to imagine he cannot keep this up much longer. Die Faust on the other hand, has not been very active, hasn't fought since 2010 but has lost his last 5 fights and his last win was in 2006.

Fight Card

Peter Aerts (Holland) Vs. Ernesto Hoost (Holland)

Stefan Leko (Germany) Vs. Tofan Pirani (Sweden)

Andre Meunier (Australia) Vs. Chalid "Die Faust" Arrab (Germany/Morocco)

Yokohama Go (Japan) Vs. Sukmongkol (Thailand)

FundAFighter Launches Campaign For Muay Thai Trainer Peter Sisomphou

Legendary Muay Thai trainer Peter Sisomphou has worked with countless top names in the world of martial arts over the years, including Firas Zahabi, David Loiseau, Ivan Menjivar and more. He's been a name within the world of martial arts for a very long time now and recently had to undergo a quadruple bypass surgery, which has a very long road to recovery. For a guy like Sisomphou, being in the gym and training fighters is how he makes his living and right now he is unable to do that.

FundAFighter has launched a campaign to raise money for Sisomphou while he is recovering to help to pay for his bills while he waits to get back into the gym and working again. Remember, the world of martial arts is not one that includes 401ks, sick pay and other luxuries found in desk jobs. So head over to FundAFighter to read more about Masta Peter Sisomphou and how you can help.

Latest Episode of The Reem Follows Overeem in Albuquerque

We'll never stop posting about Alistair Overeem. Why? Because he's the 2010 K-1 World Grand Prix Champion, that's why. That's a pretty big deal and we continue to honor the fact that Ubereem made a huge impact on the kickboxing world in just a short span of time. Hell, we want to see him fight for GLORY, desperately. It's okay that he's in the UFC now, though. We want him to succeed because it'd be really cool to see Alistair Overeem become UFC Heavyweight Champion and have held the two most prestigious titles in two different combat sports like that. 

Alistair Overeem is training here in Albuquerque now, which is kind of a trip to me. I don't get starstruck by much, I mean, Keith Jardine almost sideswiped me on the way to work one day, I was doing laundry next to him once, I saw GSP and Rashad out at a bar once and all of these things were just whatever. Hell, I even physically bumped into Robert Downey Junior when they were filming the Avengers and didn't mind (although I was upset that I missed Joss Whedon hanging out in that same bar), but Overeem? Pfft.

That's awesome. Anyway, here's the latest episode of The Reem, featuring Overeem training in Albuquerque and a whole hell of a lot more.
