Latest Episode of The Reem Follows Overeem in Albuquerque

We'll never stop posting about Alistair Overeem. Why? Because he's the 2010 K-1 World Grand Prix Champion, that's why. That's a pretty big deal and we continue to honor the fact that Ubereem made a huge impact on the kickboxing world in just a short span of time. Hell, we want to see him fight for GLORY, desperately. It's okay that he's in the UFC now, though. We want him to succeed because it'd be really cool to see Alistair Overeem become UFC Heavyweight Champion and have held the two most prestigious titles in two different combat sports like that. 

Alistair Overeem is training here in Albuquerque now, which is kind of a trip to me. I don't get starstruck by much, I mean, Keith Jardine almost sideswiped me on the way to work one day, I was doing laundry next to him once, I saw GSP and Rashad out at a bar once and all of these things were just whatever. Hell, I even physically bumped into Robert Downey Junior when they were filming the Avengers and didn't mind (although I was upset that I missed Joss Whedon hanging out in that same bar), but Overeem? Pfft.

That's awesome. Anyway, here's the latest episode of The Reem, featuring Overeem training in Albuquerque and a whole hell of a lot more.

Bellator Embraces Kickboxing by Signing Paul Daley and Melvin Manhoef

When we said that Scott Coker joining Bellator would be a good thing for the sport of kickboxing we weren't lying. In fact, Scott Coker's involvement with the sport of MMA again only opens the door to more good things down the line. Fans have already been clamoring for GLORY and Bellator crossovers, which might not happen just yet, but we know that there have been some very unofficial talks between the two parties. There has at least been a dialogue. 

So the start of it, in some form, has come. Today Bellator announced the signing of two Kickboxing talents who also have made their names in MMA by the way of Paul Daley and Melvin Manhoef. Paul Daley has been fighting in kickboxing throughout 2014 and the man is just an animal, with it being announced that he signed to K-1 a few months ago, although he has yet to fight for the promotion. The other signing in Melvin Manhoef doesn't have to be explained. Manhoef was just involved in GLORY's Last Man Standing Middleweight tournament and has a long, rich history from K-1 and MMA. 

Interestingly enough, in the original release from Bellator the name K-1 was mentioned in regards to Melvin, but not GLORY.

Badr Hari vs. Patrice Quateron Official For GFC on Oct. 16th

Badr Hari's oft-disputed Facebook page made mention of a fight with Patrice Quarteron a while back and now we know that it is official; Badr Hari will fight Patrice Quarteron on October 16th in Dubai for Global Fighting Championship (GFC). If you'll remember back, you'll remember that Badr Hari fought on GFC 3, walking away with big money and two solid wins under his belt. So it looks like 2014 will continue to be the year that Badr Hari competes for big money outside of GLORY while fans of GLORY get upset that he hasn't signed with the organization.

Also on the card will be another 4-man Heavyweight tournament for 1 million dirhams featuring Melvin Manhoef vs. Hassan and Ismael Lazaar vs. Tai Tuivasa. We'll have more when it's available.

Zabit Samedov Vs Stefan Leko Full Fight

Zabit Samedov stepped into the ring on July 6th after 8 months off against Stefan Leko in Grozny, Russia. Stefan Leko has been more active but is on a five fight losing streak and has been looking like hes just collecting a pay cheque lately, this fight was no different. 

They fought on the undercard of a boxing event Chagaev vs. Oquendo, the event had its own unique style with the ring underneath a giant white gazebo in an outdoor arena. Samedov started the fight by throwing a left low kick while Leko pushed forwards, then Zabit followed it with 2 left high kicks the first was blocked the second was one of those phantom head kicks that grazed over Lekos head and crumbled him to the ground. Zabit Samedov wins by KO twelve seconds into the first round.

Enfusion Live 20 Fight Card

Only two weeks removed from their successful fifth trip to London, England Enfusion Live hosts their 20th event this weekend on July 12th from the Palma Arena in Mallorca, Spain. 

The card is headlined by an all-Spanish clash at 95kg between former K-1 veteran Loren Jorge vs. Damian Garcia. Most kickboxing fans will remember Loren Jorge as the only man Mirko Cro Cop has finished since returning to kickboxing in 2012. Loren looks to build off an upset win over recent Glory middleweight quarter-finalist Bogdan Stoica in the Superkombat promotion. His fellow countryman Damian Garcia recently competed in his second MMA bout, losing to French Heavyweight Chaban Ka by first round TKO. Garcia was born and bred in Mallorca will be looking to give his hometown fans something to cheer about come July 12th.

There'll also be a title on the line in the battle of the Imans as the UK's Iman Barlow and Morocco's Iman Ghablou square off in Barlow's first defense of her 54kg Women's Enfusion World Title. Barlow, who successfully defeated Loren Klijn at the Enfusion 15 in Dublin earlier this year, is definitely someone of note when it comes to women's kickboxing. Her opponent Ghablou, is currently training with former opponent Victoria Lomax for this fight, which is somewhat peculiar considering the two only fought a matter of months ago.

Journeyman Wendell Roche, who was TKO'd at Enfusion 19 by Andrew Tate and subsequently lost his 90kg title in the process, looks to get back in the win column against German Christian Brorhilker.

Fight Card
Damian Garcia vs. Loren Jorge 95kg
Iman Barlow vs. Iman Ghablou 54kg Womens Enfusion title bout
Wendell Roche vs. Christian Brorhilker 90kg
Kike Bonnin vs. Oli Koch 75kg
Antonio Gomez vs. Ricardo Luiz 70kg
Ruben Barnabe vs. Thomas Alisier 90kg

Badr Hari Now Claims That He's Going Nowhere

Yesterday it was reported on Badr Hari's "Official" Facebook page that Badr would be taking some time off from the world of kickboxing to attend to personal matters for a while. Now Badr Hari has told the Dutch press that he isn't and that the longtime "official" Facebook for Badr Hari is no longer to be considered official. This is another in a long line of mixed messages from Badr Hari in regards to social media presence over the years.

There are currently a few Twitter and Facebook accounts that have at each time been touted as Badr Hari's official account, with the preface that Hari himself wasn't running it, but having someone else do it for him. This account in question has broken reliable Badr Hari news in the past and clearly has a link with Badr Hari, although Hari has now disavowed the account. So take it for what it is when you refer to it. [source]
