K-1

We are live! K-1 World MAX 2013 Quarter Final 2 in Gran Canaria is airing right now. Head over to the main page and check out up top where you'll find a link to watch the event live. As always, we'll be providing you with live results from the event, so stay tuned.

 

  • Moisés Baute (R1 - KO) Tofan Pirani - Well, this happened.
  • K-1 MAX Quater Final: Enriko Kehl (R3 - UD) Maximo Suárez - Kehl just put on a clinic here against a game Maximo. Maximo was urged on by the crowd's chants in the third round, but it was too little, too late. Kehl was just on a different level.
  • K-1 MAX Quater Final: Sung Hyung Lee (R3 - SD) Elam Ngor - This was a close, technical fight. Very entertaining with Ngor landing a few low blows and getting warned a few times.
  • Juanma Suarez (R3 - SD) David De Bejear - This was a late replacement fight and left little impression. Both guys were not in the best shape and were kind of just winging shots.
  • Alejandro Rodríguez (R2 - KO) Tural Bayramov - Tural dropped Alejandro early in round one and the doctors even had to stop and check on him, but man, did Alejandro come back with a vengeance in round two. Knee to the ribs followed by a few punches put Tural out of action.
  • Chad Sudgen (R1 - KO) Jorge Falcon - Sugden landed a nice shot to get a standing 8 count early on, but Falcon recovered. Falcon was falling right into Sugden's trap as the British fighter was able to get him into a corner and swarm with a 1-2-1 combo that put him down and out.

Hero

The year 2014 has had a bit of an odd start, as the first scheduled GLORY event for February is no longer scheduled and we won't get our first GLORY fix until March in Croatia. K-1 holds an event on January 11th in Gran Canaria, Spain, although the card has come down in prominence a bit with the loss of the Maximo Suarez vs. Shane Campbell fight. Hero Legends went down on the 3rd of January in Jinan, China, including some big names.

  • Xu Yan (R3 - UD) Mike Zambidis
  • Artur Kyshenko (R1 - TKO) Shi Yanzi
  • Simon Marcus (R1 - TKO) Li Bei
  • Wong Chung Kong (R3 - UD) Sheng Pei Kangan

K-1

Honestly I'm really not sure what happened here, but the official start time was listed on Epicentre.tv at 20:00 AEST, which is Australian time, which translated to 6am Eastern time. Then it was magically changed to 15:00 or so, which is significantly earlier so if you are like me, you missed a good chunk of this show. The big news from the portions that I didn't get to see as I had no clue that the show was airing was that Saenchai has apparently lost, but I'm not sure the means in which it happened.

The bigger news is of course the two K-1 World MAX Quarter Final bouts, where Buakaw Banchamek and Zhou Zhi Peng squared off and Shane Campbell met Christopher Mena from Colombia. The first bout to air was Buakaw Banchamek vs. Zhou Zhi Peng, which served as the main event on Thai and Chinese television as both men were very hyped up in the local markets, as they should be. It was a knock down, drag out affair that saw Zhou fight up to Buakaw's level and the referees deciding that it should go to an extra round. There was some controversy as Buakaw was potentially injured and couldn't go on, but he sucked it up and got back in the ring, only to suffer an accidental headbutt from Zhou that opened him up. Buakaw went into full beast mode after that and walked away with the decision and Angry Buakaw was a sight to behold. Props to Zhou for a great fight, though.

Then in the second Quarter Final Shane Campbell showed the world that he's perhaps the most slept-upon talent at 70kg in the world as he just made Christopher Mena look like an amateur with his strikes. Campbell's hands and kicks were just too much and the body shots did most of the damage. Campbell dropped Mena twice, once in round two and once in round threebefore the bout went to a decision with Campbell taking it.

  • Han Kai Hu (China) (R3 - Decision) Chengrob (Thailand)
  • Kong Hong Xing (China) (R3 - Decision) Saenchai (Thailand)
  • Zhang Kai Yin (China) (R2 - KO) Rachen (Thailand)
  • Li Ning (China) (R3 - TKO) Suthin (Thailand)
  • Xie Lei (China) (R3 - Decision) Pasol (Philippines)

Glory 13

GLORY 13 went down last night in the wee hours of the morning, I thank those of you that stayed up to watch the PPV here on LiverKick and apologize for my absence, but sometimes a man gets sick and things happen. Then sometimes you guys overload the site with traffic, which is really cool. Bravo (except for the downtime!). So I'm sure you are wondering who won what, right? Here is a rundown of both the GLORY SuperFight Series and GLORY 13 Tokyo.

If you are waiting for Spike TV later tonight then obviously you should not read the GLORY 13 section, which I'm going to place after a jump for those on the main page.

  • SuperFight Series Tokyo:
  • Sergei Kharitonov (R3 – UD) Jerome LeBanner
  • Hesdy Gerges (R3 – UD) Ewerton Teixeira
  • Anderson Silva (R3 – UD) Remy Bonjasky
  • Aleksandr Stetcurenko (R3 – UD) Karim Ghajji
  • Artur Kyshenko (R3 – UD) Masayuki Kenmun
  • Mosab Amrani R3 – UD) Yuta Kubo

Nathan Corbett

When Nathan "Carnage" Corbett made his GLORY debut at GLORY 11 Chicago against Tyrone Spong there were high hopes among seasoned Kickboxing and Muay Thai fans as Nathan Corbett has been tearing up opponents at Light Heavyweight for years now, but mostly in Australia. He's been the guy that everyone has wanted to switch over to Kickboxing for years, but honestly, his few stints into Heavyweight Kickboxing didn't bear fruit. With GLORY promoting more weight classes it seemed like a perfect fit, the only problem was he ran into Tyrone Spong in the prime of his fighting career and things didn't work out for him.

Carnage came back with a vengeance this weekend at Total Carnage IV from Gold Coast where he met Henriques Zowa from the Netherlands. How did it go? Well, it's Carnage and he's allowed to throw elbows. Carnage scored a stoppage via an elbow strike in the second round.

Sagetdao

MAX Muay Thai held their last event of the year, MAX Muay Thai The Final Chapter in Thailand today, which saw a huge main event featuring Buakaw Banchamek vs. Enriko Kehl, which always struck me as odd knowing that both Buakaw and Kehl will be fighting for K-1 on December 28th in separate fights, but hey, the more fights featuring these two the better, I say. There was also a 4-man tournament featuring Sagetdao, Andrei Kubelin, Victor Ngabe and Dylan Salvador.

Buakaw and Kehl fought a very tough fight, with Kehl looking good at first, but Buakaw really running away with the fight as it went on, opening up a nasty cut on Kehl's forehead which almost stopped the fight, but the doctors decided that he could continue. Kehl still landed some solid blows throughout, but Buakaw seemed to be on form and had an answer for everything Kehl threw at him.

 

  • Buakaw Banchamek (R3 - Decision) Enriko Kehl
  • Tournament Final: Sagetdao (R3 - Decision) Victor Ngabe
  • MAX Ultimate: Ekapracha (R1 - TKO) Tomoyuki Nishikawa
  • Tournament: Victor Ngabe (R3 - Decision) Dylan Salvador
  • Tournament: Sagetdao (R3 - Decision) Andrei Kubelin
  • Khem Sitsongpeenong (R3 - Decision) Vahid Roshani

Pretty simple, right? GLORY 12 features the GLORY Lightweight Tournament with Giogio Petrosyan, Robin van Roosmalen, Davit Kiria and Andy Ristie. Also on the card will be Ben Edwards taking on Jamal Ben Saddik and Joe Schilling squaring off with New York's own Wayne Barrett.

So join us tonight at 9pm Eastern for live coverage of GLORY 12 New York and don't forget to check us out on Twitter (@LiverKickdotcom) for live results.

 

  • Undercard
  • Casey Greene (R1- KO) John King
  • Niko Tsigaras (R1 - KO) Dominick Biondo
  • John Bowman (R3 - KO) Villi Bello
  • Alexy Filyakov (R1 - KO) Mohamed Fanzy

  • Jhonata Diniz (R1 - TKO) Igor Jurkovic
  • Brian Collette (R1 - KO) Warren Thompson
  • Artem Vakhitov (R3 - UD) Nenad Pagonis
  • Spike TV
  • Lightweight Semi-Finals: Robin van Roosmalen (R3 - UD) Davit Kiria -- This fight went exactly like you'd expect it to, as it was almost a carbon copy of their first bout. Kiria just never turned the heat up like he needed to do to best RvR's volume. Robin takes the decision.
  • Lightweight Semi-Finals: Andy Ristie (R3 - KO) Giorgio Petrosyan -- Wow. This fight was all Petrosyan going into the third round, but Ristie was applying pressure and was landing a few really hard shots. A big shot late in the third round connected on Petrosyan only for another to happen and Petrosyan goes down with the referee calling it off. Wow.
  • Lightweight Tournament Reserve Bout: Ky Hollenbeck (R3 - UD) Warren Stevelmans -- Not a lot to say about this fight, as there was a lot of clinching with Hollenbeck dominating most of the fight. Hollenbeck had a very strong round two and then did some great work in R3 to solidify the win.
  • Ben Edwards (R3 - KO) Jamal Ben Saddik -- My god. This was pretty much every bit of the Heavyweight slugfest that you expected it to be, ending with Ben Edwards landing some crazy shots in R3 and putting Jamal Ben Saddik to sleep.
  • Wayne Barrett (R3 - UD) Joe Schilling -- My god this fight was just crazy. Barrett put in some serious work in the first round, frustrating Schilling without scoring much. The second round saw Barrett drop Schilling not once but twice, with Joe warrioring to his feet both times to solider on. The third round is where it went nuts as Schilling landed a tremendous knee to the face that flattened Barrett. It looked like Barrett was out but he was able to get up at the last moment and continue fighting. Hats off to both men for a crazy fight.
  • Lightweight Tournament Finals: Andy Ristie (R2 - KO) Robin van Roosmalen -- Man, tonight was just Andy Ristie's night. There was no one that was going to get in Andy Ristie's way as he dropped RvR in R1 and then did the same int he second round with Robin not getting back up.

Saenchai

After the last minute change of not only venues but continents, Muay Thai Mania Yokkao 5 went down without a hitch yesterday in Thailand. The event would have been considered a success even if it wasn't moved on one week's notice, but it really is amazing to look at how they had to move the entire event from Europe to Thailand that quickly and that everything went smoothly. The main event saw a bout between Saenchai and Singdam with both guys trying to win the KO bonus, but Saenchai was just overwhelming and won by points.

  • Saenchai MuayThaiGym won by points vs Singdam Kiatmoo9
  • Sinsamut Sor Klinmee won by points Kom Kop Pechthroungrang
  • Andrea Masini lost by KO ( 2nd round ) Crice Boussoukou
  • Ekapop Sor Klinmee won by KO ( 1st round ) vs Samuel Andoche
  • Iwmiset Pornnarai won by points vs Suedam Kauanjai

Lion Fight

Well, just like we all predicted, Lion Fight 12 made a big impression on AXS TV with some really entertaining fights tonight. We saw a Welterweight Champion crowned, we got to see Tiffany Van Soest once again show why she's one of the best female fighters we've ever seen and hell, we even got to see an elbow KO. Elbow KOs are a thing of beauty and somewhat unique to the sport of Muay Thai, which makes it a thing of beauty when it happens.

So here are the quick and dirty results as well as a highlight from AXS TV.

  • Lion Fight Welterweight Title: Fabio Pinca (R5 - UD) Malaipet
  • Tiffany Van Soest (R3 - TKO) Magali Foroni
  • Jason Andrada (R5 - KO) Mohammed Lemjerdine
  • Nick Chasteen (R5 - UD) Chris Culley
  • Stephen Richards (R5 - UD) Glen Spencer Jr.
  • Anthony Castrejon (R1 - KO) Miguel Rosales

Fight Channel

Final Fight Championship 8 went down over the weekend in Croatia, the promotion of Orsat Zovko. You might remember the name from such Cro Cop-oriented events as Final Fight (which the MMA media thought was his retirement, lolz) as well as this year's K-1 World Grand Prix Finals. Since then they've been going full blast in Croatia, pumping out quality Kickboxing events and drawing solid crowds for them. FFC8 got a little messy, though, as LEGEND 2: Invasion is coming up which forced both Sergei Laschenko and Pavel Zhuravlev to withdraw from this event. Let's be honest here, it is all about money.

Anyway, Thomas Hron stepped in at last minute and put on the performance of the show, which is admirable. Here are the results from Fight Channel.

  • FFC 8:
  • MMA - 95: Ricco Rodriguez (USA) def. Zelg Galešić (CRO) - R1 3:50 submission
  • KB HW: Mladen Brestovac (CRO) def. Ali Cenik (TUR) - decision
  • KB HW: Thomas Hron(CZE) def. Jahfarr Wilnis (NED) - decision
  • KB 80: Stevan Živković (SER) def. Miran Fabjan (SLO) - split decision
  • MMA - 66:Francisco Barrio (ARG) def. Darko Banović (AUT) - decision
  • MMA -77: Primož Vrbinc (SLO) def. Dušan Džakić (SER) - R1 1:19 TKO
  • FFC Challenger 8:
  • MMA HW: Dion Staring (NED) def. Ante Delija (CRO) - R2 2:42 submission
  • MMA - 77: Ivica Trušček (CRO) def. Goran Vuković (AUT) - R1 2:13 TKO
  • KB HW: Mladen Kujundžić (CRO) def. Senid Imamović (BiH) - R1 1:19 TKO
  • MMA - 77kg: Laszlo Senyei (HUN) def. Luka Jelčić (CRO) - R2 0:30 TKO
  • MMA -77kg: Matej Truhan (CRO) def. Josif Al Said (SER) - R1 3:50 TKO

Man, this has really been a crazy weekend that I'm still recovering from. This is a good thing for Kickboxing fans, though, as things have really been hitting on all cylinders of late. SUPERKOMBAT is of course in the midst of their World Grand Prix series, which continued this weekend in Romania. Bogdan Stoica earned a victory over Amir Zeyada, who has not fought in over two years and it showed. James Wilson and Damian Garcia fought in a battle of wills that went into an extension round before Garcia picked up the victory and Sebastian Ciobanu found himself knocked out in the third round against Reduoan Cairo in what looked to be a fun fight.

To top things off Jegish Yegoian secured his spot in the Super Kombat WGP tournament with a win here. Full results follow.

  • 1. Super Fight – Light Heavyweight Bout (-178 lb / -81 kg)
  • Ciprian Schiopu (Romania) def. Jacopo Bianconcini (Italy) via Technical Knockout in Round 1
  • 2. Tournament Semifinal A – Heavyweight Bout (+212 lb / +96 kg)
  • Thomas Vanneste (Belgium) def. Dorin Robert (Romania) via Majority Decision in Round 3
