Weekend Results: IFC in Spain; or, Melvin Manhoef's Bad Night

International Fighting Championship hosted their inaugural event this past Friday, July 25th from the Pavello Olympic arena in Badalona, Spain. The card featured a combination of Kickboxing, Muay Thai and MMA bouts. All MMA bouts were fought for 3x5 minutes whereas the Kickboxing and the single Muay Thai bout was contested for 3x3 minutes. 

Combat sports legend Melvin Manhoef headlined the card and was stopped with strikes by hometown favorite Cesar Cordoba in just under three minutes. Cordoba came into the bout six-inches taller than his foe and looked to make good use of his reach advantage early, keeping Manhoef on the end of his punches and kicks whilst avoiding the occasional hellacious flurry from the Dutchman. Midway through the first round Cordoba landed a right high-kick and subsequently swarmed Manhoef with punches against the ropes before sending him crashing to the canvas face-first with a knee, rendering Manhoef momentarily unconscious. Instead of halting the bout, the referee began the 10 count that Manhoef impressively survived, only for the bout to be stopped somewhat controversially moments later. As Cordoba continued his onslaught of punches and knees the referee intervened with Manhoef still standing, which lead to a rather angry protest from Manhoef.

Antoine Habash - a Beautiful Upset

The 6000 fans at The Centennial Hall of Wroclaw, Poland didn't see this coming. Probably no one did except a few from the Hungarian fighter, Antoine Habash's team. FEN's K-1/MMA event "War is coming" had local hero, multiple times WKN, WKA, WFM K-1 and Muay Thai champ Tomas Makowski as the main event against Hungary's IFMA bronze medalist, WAKO amateur silver medalist, WAKO PRO K-1 champ Antoine Habash, training out of Re-Gym, Hungary's most prestigious Muay Thai camp.

Makowski came out swinging and tried to cut it short with low kicks and combinations but Antoine had other plans. He countered with straight punches, uppercuts, thigh kicks and some flying knees. As the round was over and the fighters went to their corners you could see the surprised look in Makowski's eyes.

Then the second round has started and you could see Habash changing gears and taking over. Combinations were raining down on Makowski and a when a brutal thigh kick landed his leading leg buckled as the knee gave out. He couldn't stand on it anymore and the fight got called.

Antoine Habas won via TKO in rd 2.

Yokkao-Sponsored Nieky Holzken Successful in Boxing Ring

Nieky Holzken, sporting Yokkao trunks, made his successful return to the boxing ring yesterday after about a year away. Holzken stepped into the ring in the Netherlands at Golden Glory Helmond against Ismael Altintas, whom he made short work of in round two. Holzken was proudly sporting his Yokkao trunks in the ring as he moved on to 5-0 as a professional with Yokkao promoter Stefania Picelli and BeNeLux Yokkao distributor Peter Wetzer at ringside to provide support. 

It looks like Holzken is over that injury from the car accident and might be back in kickboxing action in the very near future as well, with us knowing that he has his eyes on Joseph Valtellini and that GLORY Welterweight Championship. Yokkao's next event is a double-header, Yokkao 10 and 11 on October 11th. Expect to see Liam Harrison, Kongsak, Pakorm, Jordan Watson, Piscitello, Crice and more in action on October 11th.

Enfusion Live #19 Final Results

Enfusion’s 19th event took place on June 29th from the The Troxy in London. In an evening filled with upsets and finishes, 23-year old Ismael Lazaar stole the show with a stunning knockout of Glory veteran Daniel Sam. It was a bewildering performance from the hometown favourite Sam, as he was constantly backed up by the much smaller man and offered little in terms of output besides a few left kicks to the body. After winning the opening two rounds, Lazaar put an end to Daniel Sam’s night with a crushing left-hook early in the third round. It was a marquee win for the Moroccan prospect, who claimed the Enfusion Heavyweight World Title in the process.

In the co-main even of the evening, American Andrew Tate upset veteran Wendell Roche with a referee stoppage in the second round. Tate came out aggressive from the opening bell, peppering Roche with combinations, before putting him away early in the second round with a series of punches and knees. Not only did Tate become the new Enfusion 90kg world champion, but he was also named Fighter of the Night too.

Enfusion # 20 takes place on the 12th of July from Mallorca, Spain.

Qabala Fight Series #1 Results

Qabala fight series put on their first event on June 29th, 2014, it seemed like a great event overall except for Jamal Ben Saddik pulling a Badr Hari and kicking and punching Hesdy Gerges while he was down. 20 seconds into the fight Ben Saddik caught Gerges leg, plowed him to the ground then proceeded to soccer kick and then try to ground and pound him, absolute stupidity and bad for the sport to have fighters that cannot control their emotions.

Weekend Results: Jerome Le Banner Wins in France

Jerome Le Banner is an interesting case of a fighter who knows how to maximize his popularity in his home country of France. Jerome Le Banner was at one time one of the greatest fighters in the K-1 ring, although he never won the big one. That didn't matter, though, because Jerome Le Banner was a certified superstar in Japan and his home country of France was extremely proud of his accomplishments. Le Banner is 41 years old now and probably shouldn't be fighting the best guys in the world, but that doesn't mean that he shouldn't be fighting.

He fought on Friday evening in France against Lucian Danilencu in what was an entertaining bout that saw Le Banner stop him in round two with his deadly body kicks. This was vintage Jerome Le Banner and precisely what we want to see JLB doing in 2014. I don't want to see him in the ring with Rico Verhoeven or Daniel Ghita, but I'm totally cool with him beating the snot out of Lucian Danilencu.
