A Look at the Eclectic LEGEND: Invasion Fight Card

LEGEND

The mixture of Kickboxing and MMA has been around for a while now, with promoters trying to get a "best of both worlds" feel going, but I'm not sure that it has ever made much sense or been a great idea. With that being said, LEGEND Fight Show will be promoting their second event on November 8th and will feature both MMA and Kickboxing. It's obvious that they plan to spend some serious money on this event, as the main event of Alexander Emelianenko vs. Cro Cop must cost a lot and Badr Hari doesn't come cheap, either. The Light Heavyweight Kickboxing tournament is actually pretty awesome as well.

This is definitely something to keep your eye on.

UPDATE: Replaced Aleks Emelianenko.

Ruslan Karaev Announces Return to the Ring

Karaev

Look, there aren't many fighters out there that can take some time away from the ring and when they announce their return people get legitimately excited over. But then, there aren't many guys who are named Ruslan Karaev and are as exciting in the ring as he is. It's really difficult to explain the magnetism that Karaev possesses or why there are so many fans who are such huge Ruslan Karaev fans, but his return to the ring truly feels like a big deal.

Ruslan Karaev cut his teeth on the K-1 circuit for years, being an undersized Heavyweight who still held his own against all of the greats. His most notable fights were his ones against Badr Hari, with one of Badr's few losses being to Karaev before they had a few dramatic rematches. Karaev was known to be a part of the Golden Glory stable, which was in part why he was away from the ring for so long, as he did indeed suffer a bad knee injury, but also had a falling out with Golden Glory which kept him away from competition for a while. Now, finally, someone has found him and convinced him to return to the ring. KOK, based out of Moldova, will house Ruslan Karaev for his return bout and it is something of a big win for them.

Hell, this promo video that they released of Karaev is nothing short of amazing. I'm not kidding, it is really awesome.

SUPERKOMBAT WGP IV in Giurgiu Card Announced

SuperKOMBAT

SUPERKOMBAT will continue with their World Grand Prix series with the fourth event that is looking to qualify one man for the SUPERKOMBAT World Grand Prix at the end of this year. This is of course coming hot on the heels of the WGP III event that went down just over a week ago and saw more SUPERKOMBAT action. Outside of the tournament there are some big superfights, including Damian Garcia vs. James Wilson as well as Sebastian Ciobanu in action and a really great fight between Amir Zeyada and Bogdan Stoica.

The Stoica brothers are usually prominently featured in SuperKombat events, with this one being no different, but this time around Bogdan Stoica will have a tough challenge by the way of Amir Zeyada. Zeyada has not been super active over the past year, in fact he hasn't fought since 2011, but it will be great to see him back in action against a top competitor.

The event will be broadcast on EuroSport, Sport.ro in Romania, Fight Now TV in America and Epicentre.tv worldwide for $9.99.

Promotors and Promotions to Watch: Vinnie McWilliams

ESU

Hello all, in my continued attempts to get the sport of Muay Thai and kickboxing to the masses, I decided to do a segment called promoters and promotions to watch. My goal; to introduce the kickboxing public to new talent and ways to watch them, to encourage fighters, managers, and gyms to contact the promoter in hopes of creating opportunities for their athletes to compete, and finally, I hope to introduce the back bone to the sport, which is the local shows. Long before Giorgio Petrosyan, Jordan Watson, Andy Ristie, and Gohkan Saki were watched on Glory and K-1 cards, there were local promoters that gave them the opportunity to develop there skill set. I hope to tell people about such promoters and give them a forum to get their product out. First up, Vinnie McWilliams of the UK .
