Enfusion Live 26 Fight Card

Enfusion Live #26 will be taking place this Saturday, April 4th in The Hague, Netherlands. This will be the first of four 70kgs 4 man tournaments. They are doing a 16 man tournament but instead of using the old format where you have a single fight to qualify for the final 8 and then 3 fights in one night to win the whole thing, they are doing Four 4 man tournaments where the winners will have their own 4 man tournament. It sounds pretty exciting especially with all the top names involved including Hafid El Boustati, Nordin Ben Moh, Amansio Paraschiv, David Calvo and Mohammed Jaraya just to name a few.

Bill Goldberg Presents GLORY's Top Ten Knockouts This Friday on Spike TV

It didn't take long for GLORY to get Bill Goldberg involved with the organization now, did it? This Friday, March 27th on Spike TV, GLORY will air GLORY's Top Ten Knockouts and it will be hosted by none other than Bill Goldberg. This behind-the-scenes footage shows Goldberg in his gym, training as well as talking about kickboxing and his love for the sport, the GLORY product and how there is no way that a combat sports fan who gives GLORY a chance would be able to turn it off.

It's interesting to see GLORY embracing professional wrestling like this considering that the UFC would have never gotten huge if it wasn't for The Ultimate Fighter directly following Monday Night Raw on Spike TV. Lots of combat sports purists might hate wrestling, but if Bill Goldberg can draw eyes to GLORY we'll take it.

Bill Goldberg Claims He Turned Down a Fight with Alberto Del Rio

Bill Goldberg appeared on Ariel Helwani's MMA Hour this afternoon and the sole purpose was for Bill Goldberg to talk about his relationship with GLORY. That relationship has been much-publicized over the past few months after GLORY learned about Goldberg's admiration for the sport of kickboxing and the organization itself. Goldberg, of course, still trains seriously and there has been talk about a possible fight between Goldberg and an unnamed opponent.

According to Goldberg on the show the fight that was offered to him was none other than Alberto Del Rio/Alberto el Patron/Rodriguez, or the guy that was formerly Dos Caras Jr. and fought Mirko Cro Cop. The fight was offered to Goldberg for May 8th but he decided that it wasn't the right direction that he'd like to see GLORY move in but remains steadfast that he wants to work with GLORY in some capacity, possibly even fight if the situation was right. Apparently a fight with Del Rio was a bit too much of a freakshow fight for him to justify it.

Goldberg reiterated that he is willing to do whatever it takes to work with GLORY and to help promote the brand, even if it means working in the front office, hosting shoulder programming or appearing as a commentator on events. While Goldberg's heyday in WCW was just under 20 years ago now he still commands a loyal following and has been involved in Mixed Martial Arts and sports since departing the WWE. It'll be interesting to see where this goes from here.

Gokhan Saki Speaks About His Contract Status and Future

There are very few modern kickboxers who command an audience anymore, but without a doubt one of those names is Gokhan Saki. Saki, with a passionate fan base, has been one of the top Heavyweights and now Light Heavyweights for a while now. After the generation of Peter Aerts, Semmy Schilt and Jerome Le Banner were retired it was clear that Gokhan Saki was a part of the next generation of top kickboxing stars. Of course, things within FEG's K-1 fell apart and the kickboxing world fractured. It was then partially reassembled in the way of GLORY, where Saki competed until recently.

It's been no secret that GLORY has been restructuring and reevaluating their business and that fighters who were commanding hefty purses but weren't drawing ratings became quite a bit less valuable. Many fans see it as a slap in the face that GLORY no longer sees fighters like Gokhan Saki and Tyrone Spong worth hundreds of thousands of dollars per appearance, but the reality is that GLORY 15, which featured the two men in a Light Heavyweight tournament, drew the weakest ratings to date on Spike TV.

While GLORY has not abandoned their global audience, the dollars and cents boil down to the United States market being more profitable than anywhere else in the world for the promotion, which made the value of guys like Saki and Spong drop a bit. Understandably Gokhan Saki felt that he was worth more, which led to a rift between the promotion and the fighter, this ultimately led to Gokhan Saki fighting on an upcoming GFC event against Sebastian Ciobanu. While Ciobanu is a fine fighter, no one expects him to give Saki any trouble. 

In a new interview (in Dutch) Saki spoke about what has been going on from his point of view and it's interesting, to say the least. According to Saki he is still willing to fight for GLORY, but it has to be at the right price. He says that he will only fight when he is being paid what he is worth and not a dime less. On top of that, he had some pointed criticism towards GLORY's management, believing that they are still the top promotion and that they always treated him well, but he believes that the "American influence" has tainted the company and that the Americans are clueless in regards to promoting the sport. 

It's unfortunate that GLORY and Saki couldn't come to terms, but there is still hope for the future for fans. Of course, both sides have valid points in such a situation; the promotion shouldn't lose money on its fighters and should pay them what the market value is and for the fighters they should be compensated for their experience, talent and appeal. Fans have been bickering about who is right and who is wrong in this matter and the reality seems to be that everyone did what was best for themselves and that hopefully the situation changes in the future.

A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words: Bill Goldberg in Front of a GLORY Logo

They always say that a picture is worth 1,000 words, right? So how about this one?

Rumors of Bill Goldberg fighting for GLORY in an exhibition bout have been swirling around for the past few months and while nothing has been made official just yet, this photo tweeted out by GLORY this afternoon sure is telling us that there will be some level of involvement from the former WCW and WWE pro wrestler, MMA commentator, actor and NFL player Bill Goldberg. Even if that something is just in a promotional extent and not fighting, which I'm sure most people wouldn't mind.
