Nieky Holzken vs. L'houcine "Aussie" Ouzgni Rematch On Sept. 2

Nieky Holzken and L'houcine "Aussie" Ouzgni met back in 2010 at an It's Showtime event, where Aussie prevailed via first round KO. Holzken has been on a roll since then, with only one loss, to Artur Kyshenko last year.

Holzken and Aussie will rematch on September 2 in The Hague, Netherlands. Holzken hinted at this after the last Glory event and now we have learned that he confirmed the news to our friends at staredown.nl.

This is a pretty big fight, as they're two of the best fighters around their weight classes. Holzken has been fighting at 76kg lately, saying that he can no longer make 72.5kg and even had to kill himself to make 73.9kg for his fight against David Kyria in March. Aussie hasn't been fighting much but his last fight was in January where he won the It's Showtime title at 73kg.

The first match-up doesn't reflect the overall difference between them in my opinion and I expect a competitive fight. I haven't heard anything on what promotion this will be under but it seems like just a local Dutch one, seeing as the major players can't even hold events in the Netherlands.

July 7 SuperKombat Features Londt vs. Kemayo, Rus vs. Ignashov

SuperKombat is holding a big card on July 7 in Varna, Bulgaria at the Varna Palace of Sports and we've learned some of the match-ups from them today.

Ismael Londt will be fighting Freddy Kemayo for the new SuperKombat World Heavyweight Title. SuperKombat is starting to introduce belts now, with Bogdan Stoica holding their 91kg belt and Albert Kraus holding their 70kg belt, which he won in November over Alex Schmitt. 

Also on the card is Corneliu Rus of Romania taking on Alexey Ignashov. While Ignashov has obviously struggled for a while now, you never know when he'll show up. Despite him being written off for so long, there still always remains a little hope that he can return to his prime form.

We also now know all four tournament participants. Mladen Brestovac, Konstantin Kostov, Benny Adegbuyi and Tsotne Rogava will fight in SuperKombat's third one night tournament of the year, with the winner qualifying for the year end World Grand Prix Final that already has Ismael Londt, Sergei Lascenko, Pavel Zhuravlev, Erhan Deniz, Raul Catinas and Catalin Morosanu.

Raul Catinas will be back fighting on this event, as he takes on Domagoj Ostojic, a former opponent of Badr Hari. Catinas is at Chakuriki Gym now and has rebounded well after a layoff of over a year.

Other names on the card without current opponents are Catalin Morosanu, Andrei Stoica, Hakan Aksoy, Daniel Sam and Petr Vondracek. Bogdan Stoica was supposed to be on the card but was injured.
