WLF - Glory of Heroes 3 Fight Card

Glory of Heroes 3 will be taking place on July 2, 2016 in Jiyuan, Henan, China. There are quite a few good matches on the card but for me the one that really stands out is a rematch between Israel Adesanya and Filip Verlinden. These two fought in 2014 on Glory 15: Istanbul where Filip Verlinden won a unanimous decision. This was Adesanyas first and only Glory fight and he did not perform like himself at all, so it will be interesting to see how this fight goes the 2nd time around.

Details on Enfusion Live's VOD Service and Enfusion Live 40 Fight Card

Enfusion has been giving away their content for a while now, but as most understand, giving stuff away for free without huge sponsorships isn't always the greatest business model. Enfusion will now make the move to a paid format for both their live events and their library. It's an interesting move in an age when digital networks and VOD subscriptions have become increasingly normal for companies with a big library. WWE has been slowly crawling to two million subscribers with their WWE Network, UFC has been acquiring content like crazy for UFC Fight Pass, but when it comes to smaller organizations it's never clear if this is the "right" or wrong move. 

Enfusion is charging 4.99 euros a month ($5.57) for a subscription to the library as well as 4.99 euros per live PPV event. From the time that I've been running a kickboxing site there have been promotions offering online PPVs that have looked to partner with us, outside of those crazy stacked early GLORY events none of them really sold anything. From the conversations that I've had with other people within the business they seem to agree that online PPVs simply do not sell. In this case, depending on the lag time between when Enfusion Live airs a live show and when they add it to their library, a patient fan could simply have a VOD subscription and be fine. So while I understand subscribing to the VOD service, I kind of wish that the live events were mixed in with it as well.

That being said, their introductory offers are generous, to say the least. For right now it's 4.99 euros for one month, 24.99 euros for six and 49.99 euros for twelve. As a part of this introductory offer, paying for one month gets you three months, paying for six gets you nine and paying for twelve gets you fifteen. If anything, this feels aimed at the hardcore Enfusion Live fan. So if that's you, then, well, you've already subscribed.

On top of that, Enfusion Live will be running their 40th numbered event this weekend in Spain.

Badr Hari Released on Bail After Weekend Arrest in Morocco

While initial reports as to the situation with Badr Hari in Morocco were foggy at best, further information was released today by the press. Badr Hari was indeed arrested on this weekend in Morocco at the Casablanca airport, but he was not flying to Brussels, instead he was flying from Brussels and was detained upon landing in his home country. The reason behind the arrest was the assault in Marrakesh the previous month. The arrest also happened on Saturday, not Thursday.

Hari has been released on bail and it looks like the kickboxing bad boy has indeed found himself in trouble yet again, contrary to friends and fans persistence that the media was somehow trying to make Hari look bad yet again.

Badr Hari Detained In Casablanca Airport, Subsequently Released

Badr Hari is once again snatching headlines out of thin air, this time due to an arrest in Casablanca, Morocco. While the reason for the arrest has yet to be released, chances are it has something to do with the recent assault that Hari committed in Marrakesh, Morocco where a waiter was attacked for bringing the kickboxing superstar a glass of vodka and not a bottle. 

Reports claim that Hari was at the airport, departing for the Netherlands when he was detained. No reason has been released yet, but the speculation is that it's related to the late April incident. Badr Hari has been in the news again when renewed interest in a possible bout between GLORY Heavyweight Champion Rico Verhoeven and Badr Hari surfaced, with both men accepting the fight and simply looking to find an appropriate home for it. Verhoeven is currently in a negotiation period with GLORY for a new contract, which slows things down a bit, although the promotion has hoped to deliver the Hari fight for Verhoeven as a part of an offer.

If this arrest leads to anything more serious the chances of Badr Hari fighting Verhoeven drop from an already improbable range to practically zero. Here's looking at you, kid.

UPDATE: Unsurprisingly, he was released after a period of time. Apparently he was also flying to Brussels, not the Netherlands and his people are fervently saying that he wasn't arrested, simply "questioned."]

UPDATE: The same site that initially reported this news had a followup that went into further detail, explaining that the arrest was done quietly in the airport and pertained to the recent assault involving Badr Hari.

SuperKombat World Grand Prix Bucharest Card and Details on SuperKombat Expo and Gym

SuperKombat is once again looking to make a big impact this year by changing things up yet again. SuperKombat's dedication to bringing the world premiere kickboxing is perhaps unrivaled in passion and scope. On Saturday, May 7th, while there is a SuperKombat show featuring Cesar Almeida and Mauses Baute competing for the SuperKombat Light Heavyweight Championship, there will be a lot more as well. 

Kickboxing legend Remy Bonjasky will be hosting a slew of events over the course of the weekend to help bring kickboxing into the limelight, including the opening of the SuperKombat Academy in Bucharest. The aim of the SuperKombat Academy will be to raise the next generation of kickboxing stars. The SuperKombat team, led by Eduard Irimia, will be overseeing and curating the talent that comes through the SuperKombat Academy. They state that they are there to help both current and future stars. SuperKombat's track record with building new stars is perhaps one of the best in the business, with fighters like Benjamin Adegbuyi, Bogdan Stoica, Andrei Stoica, Cristian Milea, Amancsio Paraschiv and many others making a name for themselves on SuperKombat shows and becoming some of the best and most respected fighters in the world. 

SuperKombat will also be holding an Expo for fighters, trainers and brands to learn more about SuperKombat and the opportunities that they can provide. You can check out more details on their website.

FFC Plans Two Big Shows in the US This June Featuring Kickboxers Mladen Brestovac and Pavel Zhuravlev

Croatian MMA and kickboxing promotion FFC has announced that starting this spring they will begin promoting events inside of the United States with two events already lined up. The first event is June 3rd in Daytona Beach, which has been announced as a purely-MMA event, while the second event on June 10th in Springfield, Massachusetts will be both MMA and kickboxing. While there aren't any official kickboxing bouts announced yet, they have promised that Mladen Brestovac and Pavel Zhuravlev will be fighting.

Interestingly enough, both events will be aired live on CBS Sports Network. While kickboxing in the United States hasn't become hugely popular yet by any means, with it becoming more readily available one has to think that it can only be a good thing for the sport.
