Watch StillWill's K-1: Imagine and Pick Your Jaw Up off the Ground @StillW1ll

Look, there are a lot of people out there who make fine highlight reels in the realm of combat sports, people who do their best to put together cohesive and exciting highlight packages of their favorite fighters, promotions, sports or anything else they can think of. There reaches a certain point where you want more, and I think that StillWill -- Will Prescott -- currently does the best work. Not only the best, but the work with the most impact. There is no comparison, art is art and everything else is everything else. Will's videos started out like everything else, but over the past year they have evolved into much more and provide emotional impact and go places you don't think they would go. That being said, watch his latest K-1 video and try not to make a fool of yourself, pick up your jaw and wipe your mouth.


Video: Aziz Kallah vs. Alim Nabiev - Future of the Sport

Aziz Kallah has been hailed as one of the future figures of kickboxing by Steven Wright and October 22nd just seemed like another fight for him. No one knew his opponent, everyone figured it would be a walk in the park for the Lucien Carbin pupil. It turned out to be anything but a walk in the park. Kallah just couldn't get off at all against the tall Russian opponent, Alim Nabiev, who used his height to throw Kallah off. Nabiev looked like a mixture of Yoshihiro Sato and Artem Levin in the ring, blasting step-up knees at Kallah and took a clear decision.

Not only did Nabiev beat a fighter who is supposed to be the next big thing, he did at at 17 years old. Yes, I repeat, Alim Nabiev is 17 years old. It's amazing how he already has such a great skillset at such a young age, even younger than Kallah. With this win, Nabiev really cemented himself as one to look out for in the future. I have a feeling we'll be hearing his name more in years to come. Who said kickboxing is dead?


Shoot the Shooto 2011 Preview: Ramon Dekkers in MMA; Genki Sudo in K-1

Today's preview looks at Dutch kickboxing legend Ramon Dekkers' lone MMA bout in K-1 HERO's against Japanese MMA legend Genki Sudo and Sudo's own foray into the kickboxing world. Dekkers retired initially in 2001 before signing a contract with K-1 in 2005 to take on Sudo at the first HERO's event. Sudo, known for his aggressive, entertaining grappling style started out in Pancrase and went on to the UFC, going 2-1 in his time with the company. Sudo didn't reach his peak of stardom until signing with K-1, where he actually started as a kickboxer for the company, competing in the first two Japan MAX qualifying tournaments in 2002 and 2003, losing to Taishin Kohiruimaki and Masato in the quarterfinals of each event, respectively. A win over Royler Gracie and "freakshow" fight wins over Eric "Butterbean" Esch and the aforementioned Dekkers, along with his run to the finals of the K-1 HERO's 2005 Lightweight GP sealed Sudo's fame and he has since retired, becoming a musician. Sudo's overall kickboxing record in K-1 was 2-4.

Roche is a fighter who has had some struggles within the past few years, including lack of motivation and having some excess weight on him.
