I'm not even sure how to approach the level of professionalism that's endemic to LiverKick.com. I can't open an article with an incoherent ranting about something I ate the previous night followed by a loosely associated Christopher Llyod reference. That's not going to work on this side of the MiddleEasy Network. These guys are kickboxing and Muay-Thai knowledge warriors. For today, I will play the guy in the back of the class copying off of Dave Walsh, Rian Scalia and Sam Sattler's homework. For the first time in the MiddleEasy Network history, I will leave MiddleEasy.com in order to covertly hop over to LiverKick.com and cover Lion Fight Promotions 'Battle in the Desert 3' being held in Primm, Nevada (yes, that's the same place Fallout 3: New Vegas took place). The event will be streamed LIVE at GFL at 8:00 pm EST so get your unhealthy and greasy snacks ready.
Here are the weigh-in results for the event, which also include some nifty pictures.
Sakmongkol Sitchuchoke “Zingano“ vs. Cosmo Alexandre - Muay-Thai giant, Cosmo Alexandre will face off against fellow Muay-Thai giant (and Lumpinee champion) Sakmongkol Sitchuchoke “Zingano“ in a middleweight superfight. Brazil meets Thailand, you don't want to miss this one. You meaning myself, at least.
Simon Chu vs. Ky Hollenbeck - World Interim Middleweight Hollenbeck will place his strap on the line against Simon Chu from Leeds, England. Also, props to Chu for not rioting (at least I'm assuming he didn't. He looks like a fairly nice guy)
Brandon Banda vs. Joe Schilling - Both guys will battle it out for the vacant UBC USA light heavyweight title.
Misty Sutherland vs. Jeri "Fists of Fury" Sitzes - At first glance, I thought Jeri Sitzes was Julia Budd, which of course illustrates my lack of Muay-Thai knowledge. Damn. Sitzes will be placing her WBC international super bantamweight title on the line.
Remy Bonnel vs. Chaz Mulkey - We have another title fight, this time for the WBC interim international middleweight strap.
Ryan Ratcliffe vs. Anthony Castrejon
Don't forget, the LIVE stream goes down tonight at 8:00 pm EST at GFL, so get on it. See you there.
