Watch Chris Ngimbi Take to the Air From It's Showtime Lyon

It's Showtime Lyon is in the books now, with Badr Hari officially back in action against a less-than-game Gregory Tony, disappointing some, but doing as expected and taking out Tony within the first round. In a night that was largely filled by bigger names against up-and-comers there were a few big knockouts and TKO victories, but one of them really sticks out, and that is Chris Ngimbi and Will Borrel's scrap at 70kg.

Chris Ngimbi is hilariously underrated in the 70kg weight class, mainly because the bigger names have all competed for K-1 MAX and Ngimbi has not, but that does not mean that he is a slouch. He is It's Showtime's 70kg Champion and will actually be fighting Giorgio Petrosyan soon, as was announced on the broadcast tonight. Many fans enjoyed Remy Bonjasky's style of fighting for his flying kicks, and Chris Ngimbi showed in this fight against Willy Borrel that he is not afraid to take to the air and throw a flying knee when it's open. This was without a doubt the KO of the night. [source]

Watch Masato's Return to the Ring

Stand Up Japan was an event a few days ago held in Japan that was featuring some of the biggest names in Japan's combat sports in exhibition bouts. The two big names at the event were KID Yamamoto and Masato. Masato retired at the ripe age of 30, during the peak of his career and did it on his own terms. Masato retired as a legend, while Yamamoto continues to fight past what many consider his prime and has had no success in the United States fighting for the UFC.

Daniel Herbertson of AOL's MMAFighting.com was live at the event and captured it on video, so sit back and watch clips from this great event. [source]

Gregory Tony's Boxing Matches and Injury From Yesterday

If you didn't know yet, Badr Hari's opponent for It's Showtime Lyon on May 14, Gregory Tony, fought in the PrizeFighter Heavyweight International Tournament yesterday. Tony won in the first round with a controversial split decision over Russian Evgeny Orlov. In the second round he faced rising prospect Mike Perez, who stopped Tony in the first round quite easily. Now on the first knockdown, Tony seemed to injure his left arm. Right as he started getting up he was moving his left arm around in a manner that would suggest it was injured while he landed on the canvas. No one has any idea if Tony is still going to fight Badr Hari. As of now we can only speculate.
