G13

GLORY 13 is rapidly-approaching, as in, it'll be live in Japan in about 12 hours, which is just insanity. The weigh-ins for GLORY 13 and the GLORY Tokyo SuperFight Series went down when I was sleeping, which makes a whole lot of sense as Japan is across the globe, so here are the weigh-in results. Note that Le Banner hadn't weighed in yet because, well, he's Jerome Le Banner and he tends to come and go as he pleases.

  • GLORY 13 TOKYO
  • Peter Aerts (104.6 kg - 230.6 lbs) vs. Rico Verhoeven (116 kg - 255.7 lbs)
  • Daniel Ghita (113.6 kg - 250.4 lbs) vs. Errol Zimmerman (108.6 kg - 239.4 lbs)
  • Dustin Jacoby (90 kg - 198.4 lbs) vs. Makoto Uehara (90.3 kg - 199.1 lbs)
  • Joseph Valtellini (77.1 kg - 170 lbs) vs. Raymond Daniels (76.7 kg - 169.1 lbs)
  • Nieky Holzken (77.2 kg - 170.2 lbs) vs. Karapet Karapetyan (76.3 kg - 168.2 lbs)
  • TOKYO SUPERFIGHT SERIES
  • Yuta Kubo (64.9 kg - 143.1 lbs) vs. Mosab Amrani (64.9 kg - 143.1 lbs)
  • Artur Kyshenko (77 kg - 169.8 lbs) vs. Kenmun (77 kg - 169.8 lbs)
  • Aleksandr Stetcurenko (76.8 kg - 169.3 lbs) vs. Karim Ghajji (77.5 kg - 170.9 lbs)
  • Remy Bojansky (108 kg - 238.1 lbs) vs. Anderson Silva (113 kg - 249.1 lbs)
  • Ewerton Teixeira (110.2 kg - 242.9 lbs) vs. Hesdy Gerges (107.6 kg - 237.2 lbs)
  • Jerome Le Banner (TBD*) vs. Sergei Kharitonov (122.2 kg - 269.4 lbs)

Badr

While everyone is pretty certain that Badr Hari will be booked on whatever LEGEND event pops up next, it looks like Badr Hari will be fighting in the Netherlands yet again, this time not under any familiar banner. If that sounds far-fetched to you, as Badr Hari is a top dollar Heavyweight fighter, I share those sentiments, but it appears to be legitimate. On May 17th in the Netherlands Badr Hari is scheduled to meet Ismael Londt in a Kickboxing bout for A1 WCC.

The event is being promoted by the Gunyar Brothers and will also feature a 16-man 70kg tournament. [source]

GLORY 13 Tokyo is this weekend, featuring the GLORY Welterweight tournament. The GLORY Welterweight tournament features some of the best and brightest in GLORY's Welterweight division,  including Nieky Holzken, Karapet Karapetyan, Raymond Daniels and Joseph Valtellini. I had the pleasure of speaking with Joe on Friday as he was preparing to leave for Japan where we discussed his upcoming fight(s) as well as how it feels to be fighting on yet another card with Kickboxing legends.

I also run down the GLORY 13 and SuperFight Series cards for you because, well, you really care what I think, right? Maybe?

Also, for those who have phones, etc. that don't support flash, here it is on SoundCloud.

Yokkao Pattaya

Yokkao have announced that their next big event -- Yokkao 6 -- will be starting off the year 2014 on January 3rd in Pattaya, Thailand. This will be right after the holidays and is set to feature some big names like Sittichai Sitsonpeenong as well as Thongchai Sitsonpeenong. It should come as no surprise that they'll be promoting the event alongside the Sitsonpeenong Yokkao Training Center, so expect more names from that gym.

We'll have more on Yokkao 6 in the coming weeks, including the fight card and much, much more. Make sure to follow the event on Facebook and Twitter via the hashtag #Yokkao6.

GLORY 13

Funny how time tends to get away with us, especially during the holiday season, huh? This weekend is a huge weekend for Kickboxing as GLORY will promote GLORY 13 as well as the Tokyo Super Fight Series event. I know that many are disappointed that in the United States we won't get to enjoy GLORY 13 live, as Spike TV will air the event on tape delay on the 21st here in the United States, but the good news is that if you have fond memories of staying up late to watch Japanese kakutougi you'll be able to do just that for the uber-stacked GLORY SuperFight Series card, which begins at 1:30am Eastern time.

Oh yeah, you can watch it here on LiverKick.com, as well as GLORY 13 if you are outside of the US, Japan and ex-YU nations. If you are in the US you won't be able to order GLORY 13, but you can order the SuperFight Series for $20. Not bad, right? If you are planning on ordering both event and worried about costs, don't worry, we've got you covered. Ordering both events here on LiverKick will get you a cool 50% discount off of the second event, which means $30 for both.

K-1

A bit of a streak of bad luck struck K-1, who has split the K-1 World MAX Final 8 into two upcoming events, this weekend as both Andy Souwer and Enriko Kehl were forced to pull out from the December 28th event in Foshan, China. Souwer, who was ready to go, suffered from a bout of appendicitis late last week which forced him into the hospital where they had to perform a routine but emergency surgical procedure to remove the troubled organ. Souwer is resting comfortably and healing up but will not be ready in time for either event, so he has had to pull out. Enriko Kehl fought Buakaw Banchamek last weekend and received a rather nasty cut on his forehead which will not be healed up in time for December 28th.

So the fight between Andy Souwer and Enriko Kehl will obviously not happen, but that doesn't mean that all hope is lost. Oh no. K-1 has been prepared in case of such an emergency and was quick to do some shuffling, as Shane Campbell will now be fighting on the December 28th event against the winner of the Reserve bout from September, Christopher Mena. That left Maximo Suarez without an opponent, which, yes, you figured it out, his new opponent is Enriko Kehl.

So that means that the awesome fight between Shane Campbell and Maximo Suarez won't happen, but who knows, there is always next round, right?
