Poturak vs. Munoz to Headline FFC7 Sarajevo on March 13th

Orsat Zovko's promotion FFC kicks off its 2015 with another kickboxing/MMA hybrid show that will be headlined by Dzevad Poturak squaring off against Frank Munoz. This is a solid battle of Heavyweights just operating outside of the fringes of being top fighters and could easily find themselves back into the mix with a few big wins. 

Poturak had retired due to injuries back in 2013 but was able to mount a successful comeback in the second half of 2014. Munoz will be a big test for the 37 year old fighter, the first big test since his official comeback. 

It'a also interesting to note that FFC is technically on FFC17 but that FFC7 was originally planned for Sarajevo and was canceled, making this the FFC event that never happened initially and them now making up for it.

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.

K-1 409 - CHINA vs JAPAN
65 Kuji Yoshimoto (R3 - Dec.) Hanji

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.
