Warman's Kickfighting Show #57: Fight Code, SuperKombat and K-1

  • Published in Interviews

Another week and another episode of Warman's Kickfighting show where I join Steven Wright to discuss the goings on of the worlds of kickboxing and muay thai. This week we look at the results from this past weekend's Fight Code event as well as the fallout from it, including Fight Code organizing two rematches from the show and the one disqualification being overturned. We also go into depth on SuperKombat's last GP event which did not feature the same level of talent as per the last few shows but still delivered on a few different levels, as well as their business model going forward and why it is vital for them to get their act together.

And of course, you can't talk about the last week in the Kickboxing world without talking about K-1. This means talk about the show being cancelled, possibly postponed and the news finally being released that there are many potential buyers for the company but Master Ishii seems to be the lone force holding the company back. As always, the show can be downloaded on iTunes (search: LordGaul) or on the PodBean site. As always, I'm going to embed it, but there does seem to be a timeout with these files, so if it isn't working make sure to go and download it yourself.

Warman's Kickfighting Show #54 and #55, Listen to Us Dissect the Kickboxing World

  • Published in Interviews

podcast

In episode 54 of the Warman Kickfighting Show I once again join Steven Wright to discuss the happenings of the Kickboxing and Muay Thai worlds. As Steven was in attendance at the UFC event over the weekend cornering Shane Roller of Team Takedown, which meant travel, this show which was supposed to be up sooner took a little bit longer, but it was worth it. We work out any technical issues we had the first time around and take a look at the recent K-1 MAX, It's Showtime and Thai Fight events, as well as SuperKombat and Mike Zambidis having a successful comeback fight after the loss to JWP.

It was a lot to cover and we did so in the course of an hour, with a look at how stars are made within the tournament format and how there are a lot of bright spots coming up in the kickboxing world, especially at 70kg. (Direct Download)

There is a whole lot to cover and we do our best, which leads us into the next episode! The next episode we take a long, hard look at the loss of Badr Hari, Gokhan Saki and possibly Tyrone Spong from the kickboxing world and just what that means. We also look at how Hari and Saki would potentially make a Boxing career work and what impact they could really have. There has been a lot of negative stuff going around focusing on lack of depth of talent and a lot of that simply is not true, as we go into depth on these issues and more. (Direct Download)

GLORY Announces GLORY 16 Denver in May

  • Published in Glory

GLORY

As someone who lives in the Southwest I can say that it is sometimes difficult to be a fan of combat sports out here. Going to live events is kept to local and smaller events, which let's be honest, isn't everyone's cup of tea. Sometimes you want to see high level stuff and your only choice is to make a long trek to Las Vegas, Texas or California, which, also isn't great. Well, GLORY is going to make good on their promise to come to Denver, Colorado. They originally were talking about GLORY 14 happening in Denver, but circumstances obviously changed and now we instead will get GLORY 16 Denver on May 3rd at the 1STBANK Center.

Still no information on the card just yet, but as it is a major GLORY event and knowing their plans for the year, we can expect something big.

Hero Legends went down on the 3rd of January in Jinan, China, including some big names.

  • Xu Yan (R3 - UD) Mike Zambidis
  • Artur Kyshenko (R1 - TKO) Shi Yanzi

Science of 8 Limbs Says Goodbye to Lumpinee

  • Published in Muay Thai

Lumpinee

When you think about Muay Thai chances are that Lumpinee Stadium will pop into your head at some point, at least it should. Lumpinee Stadium is perhaps the most famous stadium in all of Muay Thai, as it has housed some of the biggest stars in the sport of Muay Thai and some truly classic fights. Sure, there are other stadiums that have housed some tremendous talent and great fights as well, but Lumpinee's history made it stand out. Lumpinee Stadium opened in 1956 and the old warhorse was showing some serious wear, which led to a new, improved Lumpinee Stadium being built.

On Friday the last event at Lumpinee Stadium was held and the Science of 8 Limbs' Mike LNg spoke with Michael "Chase" Corley, Mark DeLuca, Wayne Gregory and Dave Zuninga about their memories and experiences at Lumpinee Stadium and I highly recommend that you check it out.

Video: When Muay Thai Gets Ridiculous and Stupid

  • Published in Muay Thai

So, muay thai. Muay Thai is a sport that is widely respected the world over for demonstrating some of the best fighting technique and skill, as well as being one of the most exciting sports in the world. Muay Thai has spread throughout the entire world and has taken on a life of its own in different nations, gaining popularity in places like the United Kingdom, Australia and the United States.

Of course, not everything muay thai is high level. There are some places in Thailand that like to take advantage of the national sport and lure in tourists with ridiculous spectacles. This video is just that. This video is from the Reggae Bar in Koh Phi Phi that is best known for letting tourists step into the ring for free booze or food. As you can see, this is not what you'd expect at Lumpinee or Rajadamnern. Trash can lids are definitely not a part of your standard muay thai fight.

GLORY Adds Aikpracha vs. Kraus at GLORY 14

  • Published in Glory

Glory

GLORY has been scooping up talent from across the world left and right but has had some issues when it comes to getting some bigger name Thais under a contract, but all of that has changed as at GLORY 14 in Zagreb Aikpracha will make his debut for the organization against Albert Kraus. This is a huge signing for GLORY as the 28 year old Aikpracha is still in the prime of his career, holding the Lumpinee Stadium Welterweight Championship in 2012.

Aikpracha has been testing the waters outside of Thailand over the past few years, fighting under the banners of La Nuits de Titans, Yokkao, Thai Fight and most recently MAX Muay Thai.
