Rules:

The LiverKick.com rankings are living rankings that have existed in one form or another since 2009. After the initial rankings were tabulated, they moved on from there. If one fighter beats a fighter ranked above them, they take their place. If a new fighter is introduced, that means that said fighter is ranked above whomever he beat, moving everyone else down. 

Fighters can drop or move up in the rankings without losing or winning, depending on the division in general. After 12 months of inactivity, or if a retirement is announced, fighters can be removed from the rankings. These rankings are also at our discretion.

Video: Simon Marcus gets Annihilated by China's Fang Bian

  • Published in Video

Canada's Simon Marcus fought in China on the WKF world championship card on Jan 31 against China's Fang Bian and lets say that Marcus did not have a good day. It seems as though Joe Schilling exposed a weakness in Simon's boxing defense, mainly due to the way he pressures forwards so hard with his hands down. This fight shows us that Simon has still not changed the mistakes that got him KO'd before, but there is no denying how tough he is still getting up after being knocked down at least 4 times. Of course Fang Bian is super happy and celebrates by flinging himself on the ground and flailing, while Marcus is upset but does little push ups... slightly awkward situations at the end.

China Making Big Plays for Kickboxing in 2015

  • Published in Kickboxing

If you've been paying attention to kickboxing, you'll probably recognize that 2014 has been a strange year for the sport. We started things off with GLORY as the clear #1 promotion in the world, with the top talents, biggest events and the most promise. As we enter into 2015 things are a bit more muddy and confusing. In fact, they are a lot more confusing. 

GLORY 19 is in February, featuring Rico Verhoeven vs. Errol Zimmerman for the GLORY Heavyweight Championship, but to say that things seem to be in disarray in the GLORY camp is an understatement. The postponement of the show raised a lot of eyebrows and now we are seeing more and more GLORY contracted fighters taking fights somewhere else, or, like Joe Valtellini, petitioning for a shot at the UFC against CM Punk. I wouldn't count GLORY out just yet, but at the same time, if we look at the upcoming Kunlun and Wu Lei Feng cards in China, it's hard not to notice the sheer amount of GLORY talent on those cards

On January 3rd and 4th
#Kunlun Fight 15
– Rico Verhoeven vs Andrei Herasimchuk
– Sittichai Sitsongpeenong vs Murthel Groenhart
– Jafharr Wilnis vs Alireza Karbasi
Other fights:
– Andy Souwer vs Jaio Fukai
– Steve Moxon vs Aikpracha Meenayothin
– Tomas Hron vs Roman Kryklia
– Victor Nagbe vs Mostafa Rajabi
 
On January 31 and February 1st
Kunlun Fight 16 and WLF
– Albert Kraus vs ??
– Simon Marcus vs ??
– Arthur Kyshenko vs Bai Jinbin
– Andy Ristie vs Aikpracha Meenayothin
– Robin van Roosmalen vs Dzianis Zuev
 
Other fights:
– Hesdy Gerges vs Alexy Ignashov
– Colin George vs Mighty Mo
– Cosmo Alexandre vs Li Yankun
 

This is kind of revealing. In addition to that, on K-1's USA vs. China event happening in China on January 1st the #1 contender for GLORY's Featherweight Championship, Gabriel Varga, will be fighting with GLORY's blessing. K-1 also announced a huge partnership with some of the biggest networks in China for ten live events in 2015. While it isn't clear if K-1 will be making big money from that just yet, the potential viewership for them is out-of-this-world. 

As of right now it is looking like China is making huge moves to be the new home of kickboxing and could potentially be the "new" Japan, possibly even ushering in a boom period. We'll just have to wait and see.

VIDEO: Buakaw vs. Yi Long From WLF

  • Published in Video

This weekend WLF ran what they had been billing as the fight of the century. No, not Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather (although they did promote it as on part with that), but instead Buakaw Banchamek vs. Yi Long. It was muay thai legend vs. kung fu legend and of course, only in China. China has seen a steady rise in interest in kickboxing over the past few years, helped in part by Wu Lin Feng, K-1 and Kunlun airing on national television there. 

So this fight happened and I dunno, take from it what you will.

Full Card for Jan. 23 Wu Lin Feng Card Featuring Petrosyan and More

  • Published in Kickboxing

China, man, are they starting to get a vice grip on kickboxing or what? Wu Lin Feng's upcoming show on January 23rd is proof enough that they are doing some big things. That 67kg tournament is truly interesting, with names like Andrei Kubelin, Xie Lei, UMA and Nathan Robson. On top of that the legendary Yi Long is competing against Eyedisa Alamdarnezam and Pakorn is fighting Wei Rui.

The man that knocked out Simon Marcus, Fang Bian, is in action as well, taking on France's Cedric Doumbe. The big fight for most of us is Giorgio Petrosyan's first bout of the year against Jiao Fukai in what is looking to be an incredibly busy year for the Doctor early on.

Card is courtesy of our friends at Kiksie.

WATCH: Buakaw Banchamek vs. Yi Long's Second, Controversial Clash in China

  • Published in Kickboxing

The first bout between Buakaw Banchamek and Yi Long in China set records and helped to popularize the sport of kickboxing even further in China. So when WLF scheduled the rematch for this weekend everyone knew it would be a big deal. The fight went down and the ratings were apparently astronomical, with insane viewership.

As for the fight itself? Watch for yourself, but there is absolutely controversy over this one, with Yi Long walking away with the decision in his home country of China where he is a hero.

WLF - Glory of Heroes Fight Card

  • Published in Kickboxing

On April 2nd, WLF will be hosting their Glory of Heroes event in Shenzhen, China. WLF is the biggest fighting promotion in China at the moment and they don`t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.

For this card they had an interesting concept. They have 4 fighters (2 Chinese and 2 Foreigners) at the 63kgs, 67kgs, and 70kgs weight class and they allowed the fans to vote on the match ups. Pretty cool idea and it has made for some great match ups with the amazing talent they have.

Fight Card

Super Fight - Israel Adesanya vs Alex Pereira

70kgs - Enriko Kehl vs Yi Long

70kgs - Josh Jauncey vs Xu Yan

67kgs - Fabio Pinca vs Yinghua Tie

67kgs - Jomthong vs Qiujian Liang

63kgs - Yukiya Nakamura vs Wei Rui

63kgs - Emmanuel Lique Cañaveral vs Deng Zeqi

WLF Glory of Heroes Results: Jauncey Victorious with Headkick KO

  • Published in Asia

Shenzen was hopping tonight as WLF's Glory of Heroes card took place there and delivered some big action. Alex Pereira defeated Israel Adesanya via decision, Yi Long picked up every bit of sketch of a decision as you'd expect in China against poor Enriko Kehl and Josh Jauncey defeated Xu Yan in spectacular fashion. The big story here was Josh Jauncey picking up a KO victory over K-1 veteran Xu Yan. It happened in the third round via a headkick and it was quite a sight to behold. Xu Yan raised his hand to show that he was alright while he was on the way down to the mat, not to get up before the bell.

WLF Results: Giorgio Petrosyan Gets Things Done

  • Published in Asia

Wu Lin Feng returned with a big night of fights, headlined by the Doctor himself, Giorgio Petrosyan, against Jiao Fukai. Petrosyan fought against what seemed like immeasurable odds in China only to knock Jiao Fukai out in the second round. This is a rare knockout from Petrosyan and it's clear that he's still working up to the level that he was before the Ristie knockout. Is Petrosyan's full confidence back now? If so, look out. 

There was a big 67kg tournament that took place featuring eight men that saw Andrei Kulebin look great, but only to be bested by china's Qiu Jiangliang. Jiangliang is perhaps one of the best prospects out of China over the past few years, but of course, 67kg isn't exactly a normal weight class that you'll find in most kickboxing promotions at the moment, so he'd either need to move to 65kg or 70kg to fight some of the best in the world in either weight class.

67kg Tournament: Andrei Kulebin (Ext.R - Decision) Jie Feng

67kg Tournament: Qiu Jiangliang (R3 - Decision) Nathan Robson

67kg Tournament: Lu Jianbo (R2 - KO) Melsik Bagdasarayan

67kg Tournament: Xie Lei (R3 - Decision) Uma

Jomthong Chuwattana (R1 - KO) Zeqi Deng

Yang Zhuo (R1 - KO) Craig Dickson

Yi Long (R3 - Decision) Seyedisa Alamdarnezam

Wei Rui (R3 - Decision) Pakorn PK Saenchaimuaythaigym

67kg Tournament Semi-Final: Andrei Kulebin (R3 - Decision) Xie Lei

67kg Tournament Semi-Final: Qiu Jianglian (R1 - KO) Lu Jianbo

Wang Honxiang (R3 - Decision) King

Fang Bian (Ext.R - Decision) Cedric Doumbe

67kg Tournament Final: Qiu Jiangliang (R1 - KO) Andrei Kulebin

Giorgio Petrosyan (R2 - TKO) Jiao Fukai
