Schilling vs. Kato II Headlining Bellator's Second Kickboxing Card

When Joe Schilling initially made the move to Bellator MMA's middleweight division many saw this as his opportunity to break out and really make a name for himself. His debut came against Melvin Manhoef in what was a crazy brawl of a fight that ended with Schilling knocking Manhoef out in spectacular fashion. Joe Schilling had arrived. His next fight against Rafael Carvalho saw Schilling demonstrate some of the grappling that he had been working on to spruce up his MMA game, but ultimately the judges gave the fight to Carvalho, which was not without some controversy. 

His next fight was against Hisaki Kato in Kato's Bellator debut in a fight that many saw as a foregone conclusion. The only problem was that no one told Kato that. Kato scored a rather crazy superman punch against Schilling, putting Schilling down and out. Interestingly enough, the superman punch has been one of Schilling's signature moves in the kickboxing realm, it being the punch that put down Artem Levin in their first meeting back at GLORY 10, leading to Schilling's big tournament victory. Since the June loss to Kato Schilling has been competing in kickboxing, working his way through the remainder of his GLORY contract with wins over Jason Wilnis and Mike Lemaire followed by a loss to Wilnis at the recent GLORY 30.

This past weekend it was announced that Bellator was setting up Hisaki Kato vs. Joe Schilling II, but that interestingly enough, it would headline Bellator's second kickboxing event. That event is set to take place directly following Bellator MMA: Dynamite 2 on June 24th. 


Absolutely Do Not Push Takeru While He's Wearing His K-1 Championship

K-1 Japan has another, star-studded and most likely knockout-filled card approaching on the 24th of June, featuring a 65kg tournament. Also featured on the card will be K-1 -55kg Champion Takeru taking on Ozawa Kaito. At a recent press conference for the event both men stared down and Kaito decided to get cute with Takeru. Takeru is, of course, a beautiful, violent soul, which is to say that it didn't work out too well. Here's the thing, don't come at Takeru while he's wearing his belt.

Apparently he's kind of invincible while wearing it, because this one-handed judo takedown is just a thing of beauty.


WATCH: Yohan Lidon Lands a Monster Head Kick KO

Yes, slow news day. That being said, this head kick KO from Yohan Lidon over Karapet Karapetyan from May 19th at Capital Fights in France is simply a thing of beauty. Does it match the Marat Grigorian one from the last GLORY show? Maybe, maybe not, but who cares? It's a beautiful head kick KO and that's the reason why we are here. 

Énorme KO de Lidon sur Karapetyan

Incroyable KO infligé par Yohan Lidon ! Rassurez-vous, son adversaire d'un soir s'est relevé quelques instants après. #boxe21
