Watch Why Koya Urabe Will be Back on the WORLD Stage

Let's face it, Koya Urabe was one of the favorites in the K-1 MAX Japan -63kg tournament, as he should have been. Even after having his leg dismantled in the first round, Urabe marched on through another fight and found himself in the finals. He put up on hell of a fight, the kind you do when in a big one-night tournament against Yuta Kubo. Tanikawa made mention that both of these men will make the WORLD stage, which is quite a turnaround from last year where Urabe won his qualifying bout, but was not selected because he was not "exciting enough."

Reigning champ Tetsuya Yamato and HIROYA. HIROYA is looking to prove everyone wrong. He was once touted as the next big star of K-1 MAX by Masato himself.

Million Manhoef Already is Awesome, He's 10

When your father is Melvin Manhoef and you decide to follow in your father's footsteps, you have huge shoes to fill. Manhoef is known by many names, from Marvelous to Mini Mike Tyson, and fights in MMA under the Strikeforce banner currently, but he is best known for Kickboxing. In the kickboxing world, Manhoef is one of the smallest Heavyweights around, but has shown that he packs an incredible punch and is a dangerous matchup for any elite fighter. Manhoef also leaves it all in the ring when he fights.

His son, Million Manhoef has been training for a while now, and it turns out that this nine year old is now taking on amateur fights and showing shades of his papa. Million comes out wearing a white version of his father's gladiator trunks, does a mock dance like his father and even has a crazy counter left hook to look out for. This video shows just how dangerous this kid could be in a few years.

Fight of the Year Candidate: Yuya Yamamoto vs. Shintaro Matsukura

On May 29, Krush held their 70kg Tournament Opener and in the quarter finals, Yuya Yamamoto took on Shintaro Matsukura.

This fight can join Mohammed Khamal vs. Robin van Roosmalen, Sahak Parparyan vs. Amir Zeyada and Daniel Ghita vs. Hesdy Gerges just to name a few as fight of the year candidates for 2011. Check it out, it's a must watch.

Get Pumped for Daniel Ghita Fighting This Weekend

Face facts, there are very few Heavyweight Kickboxers that have captivated audiences like Daniel Ghita has in the past two years. Ghita burst onto the K-1 scene in 2009 when he won the Final 16 Qualifying GP, defeating John Love, Yuki and Sergei Laschenko in one night all via first round knockouts. His leg kicks have made him notorious as one of the hardest kickers in the Heavyweight division and a total leg hunter. Over the course of the last year he has worked extensively on improving his hands and it has shown. He is also nearly invincible with an incredibly hard head. Ghita has only been knocked out once in his career, back when he was only 24 years old facing off against a much more game Gregory Tony (trust me, Tony used to be a lot better).

So to get prepared for this weekend's It's Showtime event, watch Daniel Ghita from last year, where he absolutely decimated Errol Zimmerman.

Watch Yuichiro "Jienotsu" Nagashima's Pro Wrestling Debut

Japan's kickboxing world is finally starting to kick back into gear it seems with It's Showtime Japan being announced and K-1 running their first show of the year next month. Of course, that show is at 63kg and the fighters who are loyal to K-1 are looking for work elsewhere. Jienotsu is not only one of the most interesting fighters in K-1's roster, but he tries to keep himself busy. In May he made his professional wrestling debut against former SHOOTO prospect turned pro wrestler Kohei Sato for Zero-One MAX. It is actually a very, very entertaining bout.

Ekapop Sor Klinmme vs Frederic Berbichon 2011

It's common for Thai boxers at the heavier weights above 60-65 kg to take fights in Europe. The pay, once converted to Thai baht, is substantial, and three rounds can be a nice change from five.

Ekapop fights at 72.5 kg, which is huge in Thailand. Most of the small handful of Thai nationals who have competed internationally at this weight are well known. Among them, Lamskongkram Chuwattana, Kaoklai Kaennorsing, Yodsenklai Fairtex, Pajunsuk Lukprabat, and Changpuek Kiatsongrit.

This fight was a semi-final bout in a four man tournament in Bagnolet, France. Where that is, I'm not sure. Google Maps tells me it's somewhere in France.

The fight is quite nice to watch, with the fighters having entertaining and well-matched styles. Ekapap wears black gloves, Frederich red.

Watch the Rest of "Profile: Badr Hari"

You want to watch this. If you weren't afraid of what Badr Hari was capable before, you probably will be after this. Part two begins with his very candid retelling of a 2005 incident where his neighbors called the police to complain about the noise coming form Badr Hari's home and he went over and beat them. He talks about his self control -- or lack thereof and there is so much more in this. Wow.

Watch Part 1 of Badr Hari's "Profile" From Dutch TV

When I heard about this "profile" show, I made sure to speak to one of the producers, and was sad to find out it would not be found anywhere anytime soon with english subtitles. Thankfully, someone out there (YouTube user Undubately) decided to do the dirty work and go through subtitling the interview. This is just part one of three, but the other parts will soon follow! This is really top notch stuff, so watch it already. [source]
