The new episode of Alistair Overeem's documentary series, The Reem just came out today. It features some great exclusive footage from back in PRIDE and from the present day at Golden Glory. This has to be the best MMA documentary out there. Check it out.
Both of the Petrosyan brothers star in this Italian rap video. Although it's in Italian and most of you probably won't understand anything, check out the video. It's the only time you'll see Giorgio Petrosyan get beat up.
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]
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]
