Rumble of The Kings is a yearly event held in Sweden that serves as an all-encompassing combat sports event. In the past it has served as a K-1 qualifier, but this time around it will serve as a vehicle to promote a mixed (in every sense of the word) card, featuring MMA, Kickboxing and Boxing bouts, although so far only Kickboxing and MMA fights have been announced. As a part of this annual gala, Swedish fighter Jorgen Kruth is usually involved in a fight, and this year will be no different. As we've seen in 2009, Kruth will apparently square off in a MMA match. In 2010 Kruth took the fight to Bob Sapp with a R1 KO, and the year before that defeated Jaime Fletcher in R1 by punches in MMA rules. His opponent for his yearly-bout will be none other than Sugar Ray Sefo. Sefo is best known as a Kickboxer in his K-1 career but has been trying his hand at MMA of late as he is looking to fight in his fourth MMA bout, third since 2009 when he decided to enter MMA seriously.
If you are a fan of Kickfighting, though, never fear. In a modified Muay Thai/K-1 Rules bout (rules are not actually clear), Yodsaenklai Fairtex will square off with Artur Kyshenko. That is a huge fight featuring two big name fighters within the division, with Yod and Kyshenko universally seen as two of the best fighters in the world. The bout is billed as a Middleweight fight, with Yod fighting as high as 77kg of late and Kyshenko fighting at 70kg as well as 73kg, so expect it to be billed at -77kg. The other kickboxing bout announced is Chahid Oulad el Hadj vs. Dzabar Askerov at 70kg. Chahid is known to be a very entertaining and aggressive fighter and Dazabar has put his name on the map with some high profile bouts over the past year.
In MMA rules Bruno Carvalho is set to take on Marius Zaromskis and on top of that, a WMC Rules "Nordic" 4-man one night tournament at Welterweight. The bouts are Pasi Luukhanen vs. Sanny Dahlbeck and Rassan Muhareb vs. Martin Akhtar.
The event is set to be streamed live on RumblePlay.com.
