Saulo Cavalari Looking to Make MMA Debut Soon

The lure of mixed martial arts will always be one of the biggest threats to modern kickboxing, but will also serve to ensnare fighters looking to make some more money during the brief window of time that is their professional fighting career. We've seen Robin van Roosmalen, Rico Verhoeven and Tenshin Nasukawa all dip their toes into MMA of late and there will always be more. Gabriel Varga, who just recently jumped to Bellator Kickboxing, has spoken about possibly exploring MMA as well while under the umbrella of Scott Coker's Bellator. 

According to MMAFighting, the latest to be eye-balling a transition into the realm of MMA is none other than former GLORY Light Heavyweight Champion Saulo Cavalari. Cavalari, who is just coming off of a loss to GLORY Light Heavyweight Champion Artem Vakhitov at GLORY 38, has been training in jiu-jitsu for years and had been considering MMA as far back as 2013. What kept him in kickboxing? GLORY made him an offer and from there he's gone 7-2, including a run as the GLORY Light Heavyweight Champion. 

He's still currently under contract with GLORY and has his eyes set on regaining the GLORY Light Heavyweight Championship, but says he'd like to make his transition this year and would ultimately like to become a UFC champion.

Bellator Kickboxing 6 Results: Ghajji Reclaims Title While Varga Falters

On Friday in Budapest Bellator returned just under a week after their last kickboxing event with Bellator Kickboxing 6. Gabriel Varga, the former GLORY Featherweight Champion, made his debut for the promotion against the very tough Gabor Gorbics. Many were expecting an easy fight for Varga, but Gorbics came to fight and was applying pressure wherever he could to one of the best fighters in the world, taking a narrow split decision over Varga. Jorina Baars on the other hand put on a blistering performance against Irene Martens with a huge decision victory.

Raymond Daniels wowed international crowds yet again with a spinning back kick KO in the third round. Gyorfi proved game against Daniels, absorbing punishment and fighting back, but Daniels had a knockout in mind, as he is prone to doing, and executed it flawlessly in the third. Joe Schilling was back in action against the very tough Alexandru Negrea, picking up a win over the Romanian with a decision. Chalk that one up to Negrea's toughness. 

In the main event, Karim Ghajji won back the Bellator Kickboxing Welterweight Championchip from Zoltan Laszak in a close fight that went to a decision, with the judges split, but awarding the win to Ghajji.

Bellator Kickboxing Welterweight Championship: Karim Ghajji (R5 - Split Decision) Zoltan Laszak(C)
