GLORY 11 Chicago Live Results and Discussion

Glory

GLORY 11 Chicago goes down tonight, live on Spike TV at 9pm Eastern in the United States, or you can watch the PPV stream live on LiverKick if you are out of the US! This is a huge deal for Kickboxing and a huge card to go along with the occasion. Essentially, this is not something that you want to miss. So join us tonight at 9pm Eastern time to watch GLORY 11 live. I'll be tweeting from @LiverKickdotcom and will be updating Facebook as well, but feel free to discuss the event within the comments section as well.

The GLORY 11 undercard will NOT be airing live, but instead GLORY will be posting it in two weeks to their website for free, much like they did with GLORY 10.

 

 

  • GLORY 11 CHICAGO
  • Heavyweight Finals: Rico Verhoeven (R3 - Dec.) Daniel Ghita -- Wow, just wow. Tremendous action from both men, back and forth. Every round was insanely close, with Ghita probably winning the first round and Rico taking the 2nd and 3rd. Tremendous action, with Rico looking better than he's ever looked before.
  • Tyrone Spong (R2 - TKO) Nathan Corbett -- Wow, both guys just came in looking to lay some heavy leather. Lots of body work with Tyrone's body punches visibly doing damage to Corbett in R1. Spong just absolutely floored Carnage in R2, but Carnage got back up. A second knockdown was all that she wrote, as the ref stopped the bout. Wow, Tyrone.
  • Joseph Valtellini (R3 - TKO) Karim Ghajji -- Really exciting fight between both guys. Very solid, technical affair that saw both men exchanging and looking extremely solid. Joe came up with a rather incredible series of strikes in R3 to put Ghajji down. Great, great fight.
  • Heavyweight Reserve Bout: Errol Zimmerman (R3 - TKO) Hesdy Gerges -- Errol Zimmerman came into the fight in great shape and looked focused, which is all you can ask for from Errol. He knocked Gerges down hard, but Gerges fought back to his feet. Round 2 saw Gerges control most of the ring and action, but Zimmerman flattened him in R3, only for him to fight back to his feet. Zimmerman scored one last knockdown and made a huge statement.
  • Heavyweight Tournament: Daniel Ghita (R1 - KO) Anderson Silva -- Wow, Daniel Ghita is super focused with his new trainer. Ghita was favoring using his hands over his kicks, but set up the right hook with a left body kick that put Braddock down for the count. The finals is Ghita vs. Rico!
  • Heavyweight Tournament: Rico Verhoeven (R3 - Majority Decision) Gokhan Saki -- Saki fans are going to be really upset over this one, but GLORY's flash knockdown rule played a huge factor here, and yes, it was a knockdown. Rico knocked Saki down in R1 almost immediately, with Saki protesting and threatening the ref (which he should have been DQ'd for, honestly). Rico controlled the rest of the round. Rico controlled R2 for the most part, but Saki landed some huge shots near the end which didn't put Rico down. Rico should have, but he didn't. You could argue that Saki gets that round because of that. Then R3 was mostly controlled by Rico, gaining him the HUGE win. What an upset. Very proud of how much Verhoeven has advanced.
  • GLORY 11 Chicago Undercard
  • Sergei Kharitonov (R3 - UD) Daniel Sam
  • Danyo Ilunga (R1 - TKO) Michael Duut

glory

You get to watch all of the action go down live and get to support GLORY as well as LiverKick. So don't forget to tune in live with us.

Here is the televised card for tonight.

  • GLORY 10 LOS ANGELES
  • Tournament Finals: Joe Schilling (Ext.R - Unanimous Decision) Artem Levin - Wow, this fight just had it all. It was super dramatic as Levin fought like Levin fights in R1 and things were looking like Joe might have some problems, then in the second round Joe landed an amazing overhand right followed by a knee that almost knocked Levin out. Levin beat the count and held on. Then in the third round Levin scored a few great shots on Joe, but Joe kept in the fight. It was ruled a draw and both men came back out, exhausted, for a fourth round, with it being dead even throughout until Joe landed a big right hand that scored a flash knockdown on Levin before he let the clock run out and Joe Schilling is your new Middleweight Champion of the world. Wow!
  • Robin van Roosmalen (R3 - Unanimous Decision) Shemsi Beqiri - Great back and forth fight between the two, exactly what you would expect from them. Robin was landing some amazing blows, but Shemsi was always in the fight. This was the kind of fight that sells a sport to newer fans.
  • Davit Kiria (R3 - Unanimous Decision) Murthel Groenhart - Very close brawl between the two, but Kiria was pushing the action more and landed the better shots, getting him the super close decision victory.
  • Reserve Bout: Wayne Barrett (R1 - TKO) Rob Plotkin - Well damn, Wayne Barrett just cleaned Rob Plotkin's clock with a right hand followed by a knee that put him down once, then a right hand that was two knockdowns and it for him.
  • Tournament: Joe Schilling (R3 - Unanimous Decision) Kengo Shimizu - My god, Joe put a serious beating on Shimizu. I mean, tons of clinch knees and big kicks from Joe, as well as letting his hands go. Shimizu was a tough guy, just would not go down.
  • Tournament: Artem Levin (R3 - Unanimous Decision) Jason Wilnis - Wilnis put up a good fight, but Levin just had the better angles and was connecting throughout the fight. It was an Artem Levin clinic, basically.
  • Facebook Prelims:
  • Brian Collette (R3 - Unanimous Decision) Randy Blake - This fight was just ugly as hell. Lots of clinching, lots of trying to counter, yeah.
  • Ky Hollenbeck (R3 - Unanimous Decision) Albert Kraus - You really gotta give it up to Ky Hollenbeck who just applied constant pressure on Kraus and had Kraus backing up for all three rounds. Kraus did have a great tan, though.
  • Hinata Watanabe (R3 - TKO - leg kicks) Johann Fauveau - This fight was all HINATA, as HINATA thundered Fauveau with leg kicks throughout the fight, landing them with ease. He scored what should have been a down in R1, but it didn't matter as HINATA kept pushing until he had Fauveau in the corner, bent over, trying to cover up, while HINATA was continuing to assault. Fauveau's corner was forced to throw in the towel in the third round.

Lion Fight 11 Results: Cyborg Crushes, Yamato and Ross Wow, Nampon Blahs.

Lion Fight

Forgive me for not posting results last night, but, you know, this was GTA V week and I do have a fiance who enjoys my company once in a while. These are the things that happen in life, alright? Last night did play host to Lion Fight 11, live from Las Vegas on AXS TV and saw a solid night of action with a few strange caveats here and there. As always, Lion Fight delivers in the end, but I might suggest that I understand that they want to include fighters from Thailand, but next time, be more selective. Nampon is a fine fighter, but last night was a pretty awful display and all for a fighter who has virtually no hype surrounding him.

The fight that most of us were looking forward to, Kevin Ross vs. Tetsuya Yamato delivered just like we thought it would, as they went all-out for the entire fight before the judges were forced to come to a decision and chose Yamato. I can see the arguments for Ross winning the fight, as he looked strong early and finished strong, but the rest of the fight saw Yamato really turn up the heat and deliver the better blows. It's hard to say that Ross walks away a "loser" in this one because he put his all into the fight and looked strong, although some fans might not know just how good Tetsuya Yamato really is. Yamato is really good, there is no shame in putting on a close fight with him.

Cosmo vs. Nampon was very much of a fight that was just "there" and that saw Nampon just show nothing of real value against Cosmo. The other feature bout of the evening saw Cris "Cyborg" Justino (formerly Santos) run roughshod over Jennifer Colomb, who filled in on late notice. Colomb is a tough fighter, but short notice is short notice.

  • Cosmo Alexander (R5 - UD) Nampon
  • Cris Justino (R3 - TKO) Jennifer Colomb
  • Tetsuya Yamoto (R5 - SD) Kevin Ross
  • Malaipet (R1 - TKO) Caio Uruguai
  • Angela Hill (R5 - UD) Monique Travis
  • Scott Leffler (R5 - UD) Jose Palacios

Friday Night Fights August 16, 2013 Recap

FNF

Friday Night Fights was back at the Broad Street Ballroom Friday night with a short but sweet card of great fights.  The action started with a scrappy, rock ‘em sock ‘em bout with very little kicking but a lot of punching, followed by a fight that had all the clinching, kneeing, and kicking that the first fight lacked.

The next two JR. Middleweight fights were very exciting, with Mike Koufalis kicking off a night of victories for Renzo Gracie NYC.  The southpaw used beautiful technique and striking combinations to break the three fight win streak of Weapons 9’s formerly undefeated Sean McCardle.  McCardle was rocked twice in round 2 and failed to answer the bell for round 3, giving Koufalis the win by TKO.  After that, N.J. McLaughlin made short work of Eric Broullet with a TKO 1 minute 22 seconds in round 1.  Then Jafar “Cookie Monster” Toshev won the crowd over with packs of cookies as well as the fight against Chris Tapia.  Tapia looked very powerful, but couldn’t seem to capitalize on most of their striking exchanges or in the clinch, while Toshev utilized a very nasty face teep and low kick and eventually took the win by UD.

The Main Event was a full rules pro bout between Joe Sampieri and James Martinez.  Martinez swept Sampieri immediately but Sampieri bounced right up and spent the rest of the round in beast mode and made Martinez pay; he dumped Martinez on the ground repeatedly and was very aggressive.  Martinez was visibly rocked at the end of the round, got an eight count and was only narrowly saved by the bell.  Sampieri continued to dominate in round two, dropping Martinez with a right head kick that gave him the win by TKO at 46 seconds into the round.

The next fight was a full rules five round bout between amateur featherweight fighters with hair statements, Joe ‘Mustache’ Mueller and Rudy ‘Flat Top’ Felix (not their actual fight names).  Both fighters started slowly but rapidly proceeded to flashier techniques and flying strikes, which were a pleasure to watch.  Felix dominated the first half of the fight but seemed to lose speed in the later rounds, which allowed Mueller to come back in the clinch.

Following was the only title fight of the night, a full rules five round fight for the JR. Middleweight Title Belt between Sean Fagan and Chris Williams.  Williams, who fought just a few weeks ago in New Jersey, controlled the fight and outmuscled Fagan in the clinch.  Fagan was very gritty and managed to cut Williams in round one, but couldn’t seem to get anything else started until round four, when his right cross started landing.  Williams continued to dominate but was docked a point in round five for an illegal knee, and judges opted to give the win to hometown favorite, Fagan, by UD.

The final Co-Main event fight was a full rules pro bout between Elijah Clarke and Michael Stevens.  Clarke had the reach advantage but Stevens was able to get in and force the fight into the clinch, and was not shy about throwing elbows either.  There was some confusion about the actual length of the fight, whether it was to be three rounds or five rounds, and while both fighters looked game to keep it going, much to everyone’s disappointment the fight was called at the end of three rounds.  Clarke got the final win of the night for Renzo Gracie NYC by split decision.
