SuperKombat World Grand Prix VI - Bucharest Fight Card

The last card of SuperKombat's 2016 season takes place this Saturday in Bucharest, Romania. The headliners are two title fights, one being a rematch between newfound SuperKombat Middleweight Champion Chris Ngimbi and Amansio Paraschiv. The two met on October 1st in a clash for the title with Ngimbi overcoming the Romanian favorite via unanimous decision. The other is a battle for the SuperKombat Lightweight (-63.5kg) Championship between The Hurricane Cristian Spetcu against the former WKN world champion Simon Santana.

Interestingly enough, there is talk going around about this being the last, or one of the last, live kickboxing events that will be on EuroSport. For fans in Europe this is the end of an era, as EuroSport was a huge supporter of the sport of kickboxing for years. SuperKombat has promised that there will be big announcements in the coming weeks and months in regards to new television deals that are currently being negotiated all around the world, with them looking to return next year bigger than ever. That'll include a television deal in the United States.

Always looking to provide a rounded event, they'll feature former UEFA Champions League player Jay Gunnar Solis performing during the event as DJ Solis as well as at Bamboo in Bucharest for the afterparty.

The event will start at 19:00 CET and the New Heroes part will be broadcasted live by Fight Box HD, while the World Grand Prix is live on Eurosport 1.

GLORY Announces Cards For GLORY Collision and GLORY 36

On December 10th GLORY will put forth their biggest show to date, the clash between GLORY Heavyweight Champion Rico Verhoeven and former K-1 superstar Badr Hari. What's interesting is that this will be three shows across three different platforms. GLORY 36 will air live on ESPN3, GLORY 36 SuperFight Series will air live on UFC Fight Pass and will be followed by GLORY Collision via iPPV. 

GLORY 36 itself is a fascinating card in a lot of ways, with the GLORY Lightweight title on the line between Sitthichai and Marat Grigorian, Mosab Amrani fighting Fabio Pinca at Featherweight and a Lightweight Contender's tournament featuring some new names like Yodkhunpon against Hysni Beqiri and the return of a former champion in Davit Kiria against Anatoly Moiseev. The SuperFight Series features the semi-finals of the year-long Super Bantamweight Grand Prix, with Isis Verbeek taking on Amel Dehby and Tiffany van Soest against Jessica Gladstone. Danyo Ilunga fights Michael Duut and Harut Grigorian fights Danijel Solaaja to round out the SuperFight Series.

Collision itself is an interesting card, with the Super Bantamweight finals opening the card, then Ismael Londt fighting Jamal Ben Saddik. Nieky Holzken looks to defend his GLORY Welterweight Championship against the very tough Cedric Doumbe and then, of course, the main event.

Former GLORY Welterweight Champion Marc de Bonte is Missing in the Netherlands

In what has been the most heartbreaking ongoing story of the weekend, former GLORY Welterweight Champion Marc de Bonte has been missing since late Friday night in Best, Netherlands. The reports claim that he had worked out at the gym, had a drink with friends and was en route to see his girlfriend but never appeared. There has been no word from de Bonte since then and officials have been searching for him all weekend.

The latest is that his car was found abandoned in Best with no sign of de Bonte. 

De Bonte had recently returned to the sport of kickboxing after leaving to focus on boxing after his loss to Joseph Valtellini in GLORY, qualifying for Kunlun's -80kg tournament and moving on to the next round. By all means, de Bonte is a down-to-Earth guy and has always been a pleasure to talk to and interact with. We're hoping that there is word of his whereabouts soon and that he is safe.



WATCH: Buakaw Banchamek vs. Yi Long's Second, Controversial Clash in China

The first bout between Buakaw Banchamek and Yi Long in China set records and helped to popularize the sport of kickboxing even further in China. So when WLF scheduled the rematch for this weekend everyone knew it would be a big deal. The fight went down and the ratings were apparently astronomical, with insane viewership.

As for the fight itself? Watch for yourself, but there is absolutely controversy over this one, with Yi Long walking away with the decision in his home country of China where he is a hero.
