Nieky Holzken Forced Out of GLORY 16 Title Fight

  • Published in Glory

GLORY 16

One of the big bouts at GLORY 16 Denver was scheduled to be Nieky Holzken vs. Marc de Bonte, but it looks like Nieky Holzken will be forced to pull out of his fight with de Bonte yet again. It turns out that Holzken was involved in a car accident in January, which injured his shoulder. Holzken has been working through the injury, but upon a doctor's recommendation he will not compete in May at GLORY 16 Denver against de Bonte.

As they say, though, the show much go on. Marc de Bonte will still have a chance at being crowned the first ever GLORY Welterweight Champion as he will square off against Karapet Karapetyan with the winner walking away as the first ever GLORY Welterweight Champion. Both men are coming off of wins, Karapetyan against Artur Kyshenko and de Bonte against L'houcine Ouzgni last April.

Of course, GLORY 15 goes down on Saturday live from Istanbul if you are outside of America, in America it will air on Spike TV at 9pm Eastern.

Andre Dida to Return to Fighting This Summer

  • Published in Kickboxing

Dida

Andre Dida is one of those guys that most of us know from our time staying up super late to watch Japanese events from here in the United States and rightfully so. Dida cut his teeth in Brazil before being called up by K-1 for their HERO*s organization, where he took place in their first Lightweight GP. Dida, who was a relative unknown to Japanese fans at the time, made it all the way to the Finals. From there he went on to appear in DREAM as well as K-1 MAX.

His K-1 MAX stint was weird, to say the least, as K-1 threw him to the wolves early on, so to speak. His first fight was a crazy KO, so then he was moved up in competition. When I say moved up, I mean that his second K-1 fight was against Buakaw Banchamek (then Por. Pramuk). What was crazy was that he nailed Buakaw with some great shots, Buakaw was a king at the time. Buakaw went on to win via decision in an extra round, but Dida earned some serious respect there. He had two more fights in K-1 after that, both of which were still steep climbs up the talent ranks, against Yuichiro Nagashima and Hinata Watanabe.

Dida announced his return today, claiming that he not only wanted to come back to MMA, but to Kickboxing. I'm not sure that he'd be able to just jump right into the deep waters at 70kg right away, but if GLORY or K-1 were to pick him up they'd be able to build him up until he's comfortable and see where he stands, at least. Dida is planning this comeback with Champions Sports Management based out of Stoney Creek, Ontario, a brand of House of Champions gym, headed by Alin Halmagean and Nenad Kuruc.

Free Unlocked Video: GLORY 11 Chicago - Rico Verhoeven vs. Daniel Ghita

  • Published in Glory

Glory World Series has unlocked the video of the four man heavyweight tournament final from October 12th last year, between Rico Verhoeven and Daniel Ghita to get us ready for the rematch. This is one of the highest paced and exciting heavyweight fights I have seen for a long time. After watching this fight multiple times I still have a hard time choosing a winner. Ghita and Verhoeven used to be sparring partners, which explains why they seem to know each other so well and neither of them could land their signature techniques. Ghita is definitely the harder hitting fighter with more knockouts to his name, but his power seemed to fade early on in this fight due to Verhoeven pulling him into his technical and grinding style.

Will Ghita be able to get the knockout this time, or will Verhoeven grind out a 5 round decision, What do you think?

Lion Fight 18 Competes For Your Time on Friday Night

  • Published in Muay Thai

This Friday night is pretty much unprecedented for Lion Fight. Usually when they are running events they are clear of most competition. There might be a minor Bellator card here and there, but it’s usually nothing of consequence. This time around, well, things are a bit different. On September 5th combat sports fans are treated to an onslaught of programming that means that inevitably, only one event can be watched at a time. You can DVR what you want to watch later, for sure, but three events at the same time? Some DVRs aren’t even capable of such feats. 

This Friday we get to see the first real event from Bellator that will have his fingerprints all over it. Cokertor will finally make its debut with a card featuring King Mo Lawal against GLORY kickboxer Dustin Jacoby. The Bellator Featherweight Champinoship is on the line in a rematch betweeen Patricio Pitbull and Pat Curran, then you have both Cheick Kongo and Bobby Lashley in action. This is probably one of the bigger Bellator events that we’ve ever seen on free TV, at least since they canceled that PPV and moved the show to Spike. 

Then, on the other side of the spectrum, we have the UFC. The UFC goes down the street from Bellator to Foxwoods in Connecticut with what is a really stacked card for hardcore fans on free TV. The main event is Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza vs. Gegard Mousasi, a rematch from 2008. Then you have 2010 K-1 World Grand Prix Champion and former Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion Alistair Overeem against Ben Rothwell, which is an awesome fight. Add in Matt Mitrione and Joe Lauzon into the mix and you have an appealing free card for fight fans.

This is a lot of direct competition for Lion Fight this weekend. A lot. 

The Lion Fight Middleweight Championship is on the line as champion Yodsanklai Fairtex will square off against the game challenger that is Salah Khalifa from the UK. Then you have all-around bad ass Jason Andrada taking on Stan Mancebo in a bout that should feature excitement from beginning to end. Those are just the top two fights. The rest of the card is bound to provide quite a bit of excitement. In fact, to date, Lion Fight has yet to put on an event that would come anywhere close to considered dull. 

Nick Chasteen vs. Jose Palacios is another fight that you might not recognize their names unless you follow American muay thai and kickboxing closely, but this fight has the potential to be one of the better bouts of the night -- that’s across all three events -- and all you gotta do is tune in. Lion Fight has yet to disappoint and on Friday will have a lot of competition, but this fact alone, that Lion Fight has never disappointed, is reason enough to say that the rest can wait.
