GLORY 31 Sees Major Changes: Saenchai Debut, Interim Light Heavyweight Title

Big news today as the upcoming GLORY 31 has had a few changes to the SuperFight Series portion of the card. Mosab Amrani has been forced to pull out of his fight with Eddy Nait-Slimani and in perhaps one of the best late replacements ever announced, Saenchai will be taking his place. Yes, that Saenchai. Eddy Nait-Slimani went from having to face a popular Dutch fighter in the Netherlands to having to fight a living legend in Saenchai PKSaenchaiMuayThaiGym. Ouch.

Another change is that due to Artem Vakhitov suffering an injury, he'll be out for an undisclosed amount of time. That means that Zack Mwekassa vs. Mourad Bouzidi is now for the Interim Light Heavyweight Championship. If that seems like a bit of a sudden decision, remember that Gokhan Saki held the GLORY Light Heavyweight title for 471 days without a single defense and GLORY is looking to keep their titles active. They've promised a bout between Vakhitov and the winner here when Vakhitov is healthy.

GLORY 32 SuperFight Series: Chopper's Comin'

After being forced to pull out of a recent bout with Guto Inocente, Chi-Lewis Parry will finally be making his return to the GLORY ring at GLORY 32 on Friday, July 22nd in Virginia against Maurice Greene. That will be an interesting fight as Greene is coming off of a loss to Anderson "Braddock" Silva, but will be looking to dust himself off and take a win from the mouthy Brit. Chopper, on the other hand, he's just always itching for a fight. Francois Ambang returns after making it to the finals of the GLORY 30 qualifying tournament only to lose a close decision to Richard Abraham. 

Brian Collette will once again step into the GLORY ring against Karl Roberson who has had a rather rough go of things of late. The next Super Bantamweight bout will also happen between Funda Alkayis taking on Vanessa De Waele.

Oh yeah, and Shane Oblonsky will be back in action against Giga Chikadze in what is looking to be the best match-up on the entire card thus far. That really should be an incredible fight.

May 2016 LiverKick Rankings Update: Ch-ch-ch-changes Galore

There has been a lot going on this year for both Jay and I, so we waited for the rankings to really need an update. The thing is, now that we got to tackle them, they needed a lot of changes. After a rather uneventful early part of the year we are seeing major changes in quite a few divisions. While at times we've been able to let entire divisions stand as they are, this time around each division has at least one big change.

The LiverKick rankings date back to 2010 when Fraser Coffeen and myself began ranking fighters across multiple divisions, with the only way to move up the rankings (or being added to them) being defeating a ranked opponent. Therefore, these rankings are based upon who beats who, not talent, potential or anything else. They are also current, meaning that past wins or losses are not taken into account when ranking a fighter. 

Heavyweight saw some changes, some were good, others were questionable. Brian Douwes had a win over Jamal Ben Saddik to earn his spot, then had an incredible slide that bumped him out. Easy come, easy go. New additions are in WFL tournament winner Fabio Kwasi and GLORY newcomer Guto Inocente. Both had ranked wins that put them on the map here and have taken hold of the middle of the division. Their addition means that Badr Hari once again slides out of the rankings, mirroring his lack of activity against, well, anyone. 

Light Heavyweight saw a big departure in the way of Gokhan Saki. In a way, that was a long time coming. Saki hasn't competed at this weight in a very long time and his last fight was now well over a year ago now, meaning that he has finally been dropped. This makes Artem Vakhitov the undisputed #1 Light Heavyweight in the world. There are two additions to the rankings at this point, one being Mladen Kujundzic thanks to his recent win over Andrei Stoica and Luis Tavares. Middleweight only saw movement really at the top with Marcus and Levin swapping, Wilnis and Schilling swapping and the addition of Cedric Doumbe who is a rare case of a fighter ranked in two divisions.

Welterweight is another division that has seen some shake-ups. While Holzken is still unmoving, Artur Kyshenko is on an incredible run and Cedric Doumbe hasn't tasted defeat in a while now. Mustapha Haida has made some big strides and makes his debut. Lightweight has seen only a few changes, notably the slide of Davit Kiria. Enriko Gogokhia's win over him earns him a rather high spot on the list. Tayfun Ozcan has quietly been making his way into the top ten for a while now and once again, Davit Kiria is welcoming new names into the rankings.

Featherweight is, well, Featherweight. That'll probably change again soon after the next K-1 Japan event.
