  • Published in Kickboxing

Holzken

GLORY 13 Welterweight Champion Nieky Holzken is without a doubt the best in the world at Welterweight, so it should come as no shock that companies want to work with him. It was announced today that Nieky Holzken has joined the Yokkao Fight Team, meaning that he will represent the brand for the next three years, which includes wearing their gear and possibly even appearing on upcoming Yokkao events!

Nieky will be sporting a special Yokkao collection in the coming weeks, so look out for that. For those in Europe interested in purchasing Yokkao gear, it is available through http://www.allcombatsports.com.

Trailer for It's Showtime March 26

  • Published in Kickboxing

Who said that this month was over yet? It is just beginning. First, on the 19th we have the Ultimate Glory tournament second round, featuring Gokhan Saki vs. Wendell Roche, then on the 26th It's Showtime puts on not only their second show of the year, but their second show of the month. You can't joke about something like that.

This show doesn't feature as big of names as last week's show did, but the March 26th show is solid by any definition, featuring a lot of up and coming fighters that we'll all be talking about in a few years time in the same breath as the greats if everything pans out. As always, this show will be available on http://www.showtimefights.com for 10 Euro.

GLORY Adds Aikpracha vs. Kraus at GLORY 14

  • Published in Glory

Glory

GLORY has been scooping up talent from across the world left and right but has had some issues when it comes to getting some bigger name Thais under a contract, but all of that has changed as at GLORY 14 in Zagreb Aikpracha will make his debut for the organization against Albert Kraus. This is a huge signing for GLORY as the 28 year old Aikpracha is still in the prime of his career, holding the Lumpinee Stadium Welterweight Championship in 2012.

Aikpracha has been testing the waters outside of Thailand over the past few years, fighting under the banners of La Nuits de Titans, Yokkao, Thai Fight and most recently MAX Muay Thai.

GLORY Announces GLORY 16 Denver in May

  • Published in Glory

GLORY

As someone who lives in the Southwest I can say that it is sometimes difficult to be a fan of combat sports out here. Going to live events is kept to local and smaller events, which let's be honest, isn't everyone's cup of tea. Sometimes you want to see high level stuff and your only choice is to make a long trek to Las Vegas, Texas or California, which, also isn't great. Well, GLORY is going to make good on their promise to come to Denver, Colorado. They originally were talking about GLORY 14 happening in Denver, but circumstances obviously changed and now we instead will get GLORY 16 Denver on May 3rd at the 1STBANK Center.

Still no information on the card just yet, but as it is a major GLORY event and knowing their plans for the year, we can expect something big.

GLORY 17 Keeps Getting Bigger

  • Published in Glory

GLORY 17

Damn.

So GLORY 17 and GLORY Last Man Standing -- okay, first of all, I'm not going to refer to them as different shows, because they are on the same night -- so, GLORY 17, is a really huge event. GLORY 17 at the Forum in Los Angeles is going to feature a whole lot of talent. As you can see from that graphic above, the fight that we all wanted to see between Andy Ristie and Ky Hollenbeck is finally going down! By the looks of it, this fight will be on the Spike TV card for free, which is great. It will serve as the Main Event for GLORY 17 on Spike TV.

The other big news is that GLORY has secured the final two names for the GLORY Last Man Standing Middleweight Championship Tournament. Those names are Filip Verlinden and Artem Levin. Levin was the lone holdout and was just announced on Tuesday. Oh Artem.

Warman's Kickfighting Show #57: Fight Code, SuperKombat and K-1

  • Published in Interviews

Another week and another episode of Warman's Kickfighting show where I join Steven Wright to discuss the goings on of the worlds of kickboxing and muay thai. This week we look at the results from this past weekend's Fight Code event as well as the fallout from it, including Fight Code organizing two rematches from the show and the one disqualification being overturned. We also go into depth on SuperKombat's last GP event which did not feature the same level of talent as per the last few shows but still delivered on a few different levels, as well as their business model going forward and why it is vital for them to get their act together.

And of course, you can't talk about the last week in the Kickboxing world without talking about K-1. This means talk about the show being cancelled, possibly postponed and the news finally being released that there are many potential buyers for the company but Master Ishii seems to be the lone force holding the company back. As always, the show can be downloaded on iTunes (search: LordGaul) or on the PodBean site. As always, I'm going to embed it, but there does seem to be a timeout with these files, so if it isn't working make sure to go and download it yourself.

Science of 8 Limbs Says Goodbye to Lumpinee

  • Published in Muay Thai

Lumpinee

When you think about Muay Thai chances are that Lumpinee Stadium will pop into your head at some point, at least it should. Lumpinee Stadium is perhaps the most famous stadium in all of Muay Thai, as it has housed some of the biggest stars in the sport of Muay Thai and some truly classic fights. Sure, there are other stadiums that have housed some tremendous talent and great fights as well, but Lumpinee's history made it stand out. Lumpinee Stadium opened in 1956 and the old warhorse was showing some serious wear, which led to a new, improved Lumpinee Stadium being built.

On Friday the last event at Lumpinee Stadium was held and the Science of 8 Limbs' Mike LNg spoke with Michael "Chase" Corley, Mark DeLuca, Wayne Gregory and Dave Zuninga about their memories and experiences at Lumpinee Stadium and I highly recommend that you check it out.
