class="gkFeaturedItemTitle" Watch Why Koya Urabe Will be Back on the WORLD Stage

Let's face it, Koya Urabe was one of the favorites in the K-1 MAX Japan -63kg tournament, as he should have been. Even after having his leg dismantled in the first round, Urabe marched on through another fight and found himself in the finals. He put up on hell of a fight, the kind you do when in a big one-night tournament against Yuta Kubo. Tanikawa made mention that both of these men will make the WORLD stage, which is quite a turnaround from last year where Urabe won his qualifying bout, but was not selected because he was not "exciting enough."

Reigning champ Tetsuya Yamato and HIROYA. HIROYA is looking to prove everyone wrong. He was once touted as the next big star of K-1 MAX by Masato himself. Recently though, HIROYA has not lived up to expectations, dropping two fights in a row, only having one fight in 2010 against Yuta Kubo. Things haven't gone as they would've hoped for HIROYA and this tournament will be his chance to get back on track. Yamato will be a tough test as he's the reigning champion. Not to mention this is just the first of a possible three fights in one night. Check out the promo video. Add a comment

When your father is Melvin Manhoef and you decide to follow in your father's footsteps, you have huge shoes to fill. Manhoef is known by many names, from Marvelous to Mini Mike Tyson, and fights in MMA under the Strikeforce banner currently, but he is best known for Kickboxing. In the kickboxing world, Manhoef is one of the smallest Heavyweights around, but has shown that he packs an incredible punch and is a dangerous matchup for any elite fighter. Manhoef also leaves it all in the ring when he fights.

His son, Million Manhoef has been training for a while now, and it turns out that this nine year old is now taking on amateur fights and showing shades of his papa. Million comes out wearing a white version of his father's gladiator trunks, does a mock dance like his father and even has a crazy counter left hook to look out for. This video shows just how dangerous this kid could be in a few years.

On May 29, Krush held their 70kg Tournament Opener and in the quarter finals, Yuya Yamamoto took on Shintaro Matsukura. The fight was a back and forth war, both fighters trading shots and taking shots to give them right back. Remember Mike Zambidis vs. Chahid from last year? Or how about Mosab Amrani vs. Mohammed Khamal? Yeah, this is on the level of those fights of 2010. This fight can join Mohammed Khamal vs. Robin van Roosmalen, Sahak Parparyan vs. Amir Zeyada and Daniel Ghita vs. Hesdy Gerges just to name a few as fight of the year candidates for 2011. Check it out, it's a must watch.
