Glory 18: Extended Trailer and Zack Mwekassa Pre Fight Interview

Glory has given us two more videos to prepare us for Glory 18. We will start with the pre-fight interview with African boxer Zack Mwekassa who shocked the world with his vicious knockout of Pat Barry in his last Glory appearance. Mwekassa wil be taking on Brian Collette in the first round of the 4-man light heavyweight tournament. Now, when Mwekassa fought Barry he fought at heavyweight but gave up at least 20lbs, so the light heavyweight division will be a perfect fit for him. He's very charismatic and well spoken which always makes his interviews interesting, but in the ring hes a different person, and as Zack puts it, hes just in there to create mayhem. (PS. Keep an eye out in the background of the video at 1:36 for a little surprise.)

We also have the 3 minute extended trailer for Glory 18, where we get to hear to a bit of fight analysis, and watch people get skillfully knocked all over the ring in traditional Glory fashion.

Former K-1 Champion Mark Hunt Gets a Crack at UFC Gold

On November 15th at UFC 180 in Mexico the unthinkable will happen; 40 year old Mark Hunt will have a shot to become UFC [Interim] Heavyweight Champion. The injury-prone Champion, Cain Velasquez, has been forced to pull out of his scheduled title defense against Fabricio Werdum and who else would step forward on a few weeks notice for the shot of his life? Of course Mark Hunt would jump at the chance to be called UFC Heavyweight Champion.

Mark Hunt got his spot with the UFC via a technicality thanks to his contract with PRIDE FC, the UFC opting to honor said contract and give Hunt a shot at the UFC. At the time there were no real hopes to Hunt impressing anyone. Hunt was 36 and he stepped into the ring with Sean McCorkle coming off of a five fight losing streak. McCorkle would make six. Hunt swore that he'd do better and Dana White gave him another shot. What followed was a crazy four-fight winning streak that was finally derailed by former UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior Dos Santos. Many would claim that JDS won via knockout, but it always just seemed that Hunt was just exhausted and the kick just put him onto the mat, where he was just too wiped out to stand up.

His next fight was against perennial title contender and one of the men who beat the unbeatable Fedor Emelianenko in Bigfoot Silva. It was a bloodbath of a fight, one of the most beautiful things that a fan could witness, ending in a rare majority draw after five rounds of action. Afterwards Bigfoot Silva tested positive for banned substances, which didn't come as much of a surprise. Hunt's next fight was in Japan against Roy Nelson. Nelson had always been knocking at the door of being a top guy in the division, but was always held back by his stubbornness. Mark Hunt laid him out in just two rounds.

Now Mark Hunt is the man to fill in and is given the opportunity of a lifetime. Fabricio Werdum will no doubt be in better shape, is younger and more well-rounded, but Mark Hunt is Mark Hunt.

Check Out GLORY's 20 Best Knockouts on Spike TV This Friday

This Friday at 11pm Eastern time Spike TV will present a special one hour piece of programming highlighting some of the best action to happen thus far in a GLORY ring. Sure, it might be hard to contain all of that action into one hour, but they've opted to do a special on the 20 best knockouts, which is awesome. We've kind of been begging Spike for quite a while to give GLORY some more air time to promote their events and they are giving it to us right after Bellator this Friday.

This is all to promote GLORY 18, which goes down on November 7th live on Spike TV.

Glory 18: Kiria Vs Van Roosmalen and Saulo Cavalari Hype Videos

We are 3 weeks away from Glory 18, which means its time for the hype videos to begin. First of all we have the title fight between Robin van Roosmalen and Davit Kiria. Glory has given us their version of a small 24/7 type video for these 2 fighters. I can't help but feel that Roosmalen is a big favourite in this fight considering he has already beaten Kiria twice, both times by unanimous decision. Then again I think most people including myself underestimated the Georgian fighter against Ristie and we all saw how that went. The difference is Ristie is known to get tired in fights, he used to even have a hard time with 3 round fights, but hes adapted to those, where as Roosmalen has never really had a problem with his cardio, so the whole weather the storm game plan won't work this time for Kiria. I'd say Kiria has to capitalize on Roosmalen standing flat footed in front of him, he will have to move in and out and not get sucked into standing and trading combos or else hes likely to have a bad night.

Secondly we have a pre fight interview with Brazilian Saulo "Cassius Clay" Cavalari. He has probably the hardest first fight of the tournament against the favourite Danyo Ilunga. If he can get past Ilunga in the first fight he has a good chance to win the whole thing, Unless Mwekassa's left uppercut puts a dent in those plans.

Photo of the Day: Aerts and Hoost Stare Down

There is so much history between Peter Aerts and Ernesto Hoost, with most of it taking place in the K-1 ring. This weekend in Japan the two will meet in a WKO ring; World Kumite Organization. It doesn't matter if you haven't heard of it before, it doesn't matter if both Aerts and Hoost are older, this is pure nostalgia on so many levels and a chance for a final in-ring chapter to play out between two of the all-time greats in K-1 history. 

Most of our attention over the past few years has been on the future and present stars, but it is safe to say that most of us wouldn't be here right now as fans if it weren't for Peter Aerts and Ernesto Hoost.

Badr Hari Getting Mystery Opponent for GFC 4, Quateron Not Conducive to 'Family Environment'

Over the past few days rumors have been swirling around that Badr Hari vs. Patrice Quateron would not happen at GFC 4, that Badr Hari had refused to fight Quateron. Of course most of that came from Quateron and his camp, who are very vocal on social media. Today GFC and Badr Hari released a statement in regards to the event.

According to this statement Badr Hari will be fighting at GFC 4, just against a mystery opponent. The explanation as to why he isn't fighting Patrice Quateron? Patrice was not conducive to a "family environment" that GFC was going for with their promotion. I don't even know. Decipher that for yourself.

Badr Hari Rumor to Have Pulled Out of GFC 4 Fight with Patrice Quateron

Okay now, do this with me, breathe deep. Exhale. Good. The past few days have been marred by the confusing antics of Buakaw Banchamek in Thailand and for now we as a whole are moving on from that story. What are we moving on to? Apparently Badr Hari drama. Badr Hari drama is always the least shocking thing in the world of kickboxing and it is the thing that keeps him from appearing in the ring with top competition like everyone would like to see.

On October 16th Badr Hari was scheduled to meet Patrice Quateron at GFC 4 in Dubai. Things began to get fishy in the lead-up to the event when Quateron released a recording of a conversation between Mike Passenier and himself where Passenier attempted to pay Quateron to pull out of the fight and to accept another opponent. The promise was that they would instead fight in Morocco under a show promoted by Kader Marouf for bigger money and a bigger audience. 

Instead of "playing ball" with them, Quateron released the phone call to the public and peppered it with insults to Badr's manhood. At the press conference earlier today Badr Hari was a no-show, leaving Quateron dressed in a silly costume with no one to troll. Shame.

According to our friends at MixFight, RTL7 is no longer airing the event and are claiming that Badr Hari has pulled out of the fight against Quateron. It's still not 100% clear considering that whomever is handling Badr Hari's social media posted just a few moments ago that Badr fights in two days. They might not have gotten the memo or maybe Badr has already fallen out of favor with them. There's also a chance that he's still fighting, who knows.

GFC 4: Badr Hari Vs. Patrice Quarteron Press Conference

The GFC 4 press conference was held today and once again we see Quarteron dressed up in another disguise, this time as a Sheikh. He showed up shouting, singing and dancing but once he sat down he realized Badr wasn't there. He began to yell out Badr's name but Mr. Hari still didn't show up, he did amuse the crowd though and they seemed to enjoy his antics.

So here is a video of the press conference or more like the "Patrice Conference"

Here is an upset Quarteron after the Conference
