Liverkick Staff's Glory 17 and Last Man Standing Predictions

  • Published in Glory

We are less than one week away from Glory 17, the first high profile 8 man kickboxing tournament for quite some time. This tournament is in the Middleweight (187lb/85kilos) division which gives us the best of both worlds since they have speed and knockout power. Each fighter in this tournament as the ability to end a fight with one punch, kick or knee which makes this tournament very unpredictable.

Here at LiverKick we like challenges so we are going to post our predictions to the whole event and would like everyone to join us and try to post your own.

Liverkick.com's Glory 24 Predicitions

  • Published in Glory

With Glory 24 in Denver just around the corner we figured it was a good time to do some predictions on the show and find out everyone else's opinions as well. All the fights on the main card seem quite well matched which always makes predictions a little more difficult. For example the main event between Joe Schilling and Jason Wilnis you could look at 2 ways. First of all with Joe Schilling you know you can expect excitement but sometimes that comes at the expense of his chin which makes him unpredictable. Also Schilling has never really fought a true dutch kickboxer in a kickboxing match, so we don't know how he will handle the constant forward pressure. On the other hand with Wilnis he never really changes his game plan which works for him most of the time, until he faces someone tricky and different like Artem Levin. So the "safe bet" you could say is Wilnis, but then you can never count out Schillings power and unpredictability.

Now the tournament is also a tough one, lets start with Benjamin Adegbuyi vs Mladen Brestovac. First of all if you don't know much about Brestovac check out his fight with Jahfarr Wilnis at Glory 14 in Zagreb HERE. Those type of high kicks from a heavyweight can change the outcome of any fight so Adegbuyi will have to make sure to keep his hands tight and out box Brestovac all fight. Then we have Ben Edwards vs Jahfarr Wilnis, when I look at this fight I feel the biggest factor at the moment is activity. Wilnis has been fighting consistently in china and recently became the Kun Lun heavyweight tournament champion by defeating Hesdy Gerges in the final, where as Ben Edwards has been boxing a little lately but hasn't had a kickboxing fight since Glory's last time in Denver which is well over a year ago, but Edwards always has one punch KO power and a huge heart.

Predictions

Joe Schilling vs Jason Wilnis (JJ - Wilnis / DW - Joe)

Wayne Barrett vs Dustin Jacoby (JJ - Barrett / DW - Barrett)

Benjamin Adegbuyi vs Mladen Brestovac (JJ - Adegbuyi / DW - Adegbuyi)

Ben Edwards vs Jahfarr Wilnis (JJ - Wilnis / DW - Edwards)

Tournament Winner ( JJ - Adegbuyi / DW - Adegbuyi)

LiverKick's Official Glory 33 Predictions

  • Published in Glory

Glory 33 begins this Friday with the Super Fight Series at 8:30pm ET/5:30pm PT on UFC Fight Pass followed by Glory 33 on ESPN 2 or Eversport.tv. With the event just over 24 hours away we've once again decided to try and predict the unpredictable known as Kickboxing. There have been a few last minute changes to the card with the addition of Kevin Vannostrand to the SFS as well as Zoila Frausto no longer fighting and the tough Canadian, trained by Trevor Smandych, Jessica "Thumper" Gladstone taking her place against Daniela Graf.

JJ is Jay Jauncey (@jayjauncey).

DW is Dave Walsh (@dvewlsh).

Glory 33

HW Title: Rico Verhoeven vs Anderson "Braddock" Silva

JJ - Rico by Decision, I feel his cardio and technique is just too good for most heavyweights out there.

DW - Rico by decision. Rico is a beast right now and while Braddock could be the ultimate spoiler here, Rico knows that and will probably play it safe.

Hesdy Gerges vs Guto Inocente -

JJ - Gerges by TKO, Inocente has looked great but Hesdy is a huge step up and in my opinion its too soon for Inocente to be fighting a legend like Gerges.

DW - Gerges by decision. I think that Inocente has proven himself a valuable asset to GLORY, but Gerges is a gatekeeper to the elite and he's not there yet.

Tournament Final: 

JJ - Serhiy Adamchuk wins tournament to get rubber match with Gabriel Varga.

DW - Adamchuk wins this. I don't see any other way. He's a very, very complete fighter even if at times he isn't exciting to watch.

FW semi: Serhiy Adamchuk vs Giga Chikadze - 

JJ - Serhiy Adamchuk by Decision, Chikadze has looked great in Glory so far but before Glory he had problems with tricky, durable guys which is exactly Adamchuk.

DW - All respect to Giga, but Adamchuk is one of those guys that is gonna be at the top of this division for a long time, right alongside Varga.

FW semi: ChiBin Lim vs Matt Embree - 

JJ - Matt Embree by Decision just because Lim has been through too many wars and its starting to catch up to him while Embree is still young and fresh.

DW - Embree by decision. Lim has been a .500 fighter against top guys and always puts up a gutsy performance, but Embree is younger, fresher and less battle worn than Lim.

Super Fight Series

MW Title: Simon Marcus vs Jason Wilnis

JJ - Jason Wilnis by KO, this is a really hard one to predict but Wilnis does have good KO power in his hands and that has proven a problem for Marcus in the past even though he beat him previously but that was their 2nd fight that night.

DW - Marcus by decision. Marcus is simply the guy right now. He's had a suspect chin a few short times in kickboxing, but he's learned his lesson since then, I don't see him getting into wild exchanges with Wilnis. Their first fight he won by volume while Wilnis simply walked him down and got hit. I expect similar.

Chi Lewis-Parry vs Anthony Mcdonald

JJ - Chopper by KO, Mcdonald took the fight on short notice while Chopper is in the best shape of his life and looked much more technical and composed his last fight. I foresee a nasty ending in this fight.

DW - Chopper via KO. Choppa's comin'.

Jessica Gladstone vs Daniela Graf

JJ - Gladstone by Decision, I've seen Jessica fight live before and she is as tough as they come, she can grind out a fight like no other as long as she is in shape considering taking the fight last minute.

DW - Graf via decision. I like Gladstone, but Graf was prepared to fight on this night against an American favorite, none-the-less. I think that she'll just be able to outpoint her.

Francois Ambang vs Daniel Morales 

JJ - Ambang by KO, Leg kick Destruction

DW - Ambang via KO. Morales is trying, but Ambang is by far a more complete kickboxer and he's proven himself time and time again. Morales doesn't have the power or ability to get on the inside and test Ambang's chin like others have, period.

Kevin VanNostrand vs David Moore

JJ - VanNostrand by Dec, Kevin is a really hard fight for anyone due to his awkward style.

DW - Van Nostrand by decision. Kevin is a surprisingly good fighter for a guy of his renown and really deserves more time in the spotlight. This is that and I appreciate it. Also, since we've been caring for newborn twins I've been rewatching Seinfeld again and Dr. Van Nostrand always wins.
