While there is a lot of attention being paid to GLORY over the past year or so, as they have been picking up where K-1 left off back in 2010, K-1 Global has been active within 2013 after having a bit of an odd 2012, to say the least. K-1 has been running a few, smaller shows this year in the hopes of finding up and coming talent to help refill their roster since the big GLORY split happened a few years ago.
As we've seen with the K-1 World MAX Final 16 card, they have done a pretty good job of that through their K-1 World Qualifying Tour events so far and will continue to do so with the K-1 World Tour events as well, which will look to crown champions in each country as well as give some of those fighters not ready for the big time yet some developmental contracts.
Last night they posted the video from June 22nd's K-1 World Qualifying Tour MAX Selection Brazil event, which saw Wallace Lopez move on to the K-1 World MAX Final 16. Go ahead and watch the full tournament here.
