It's hard to argue with the sheer quality of the Kunlun cards that they are putting together in China, the next of which goes down on February 1st in Guangzhou. Kunlun 19 is shaping up to be pretty fascinating with the finals of their 70kg tournament taking place and more on their Heavyweight tournament. I'm not sure that Kunlun will be sustainable into the future, but have fun with it while it lasts because we sure as hell will be.
Here's a breakdown of what they'll be offering. The list of name talent is long, including Konstantin Ghulov, mighty Mo, Hesdy Gerges, Ashwin Balrak, Andrei Herasimchuk, Marat Grigorian, Aikpracha Meenayothin, Davit Kirita, Artur Kyshenko and more. I mean, wow. It's also fair to note that Kunlun is making an effort at getting their stuff out there in English, although it's a bit rough around the edges.
