Harut Grigorian PIcks Chris Ngimbi Apart at It's Showtime 55

GrigorianThis fight is a rematch from 2009 in It’s Showtime where Harut Grigorian took an extra round decision over Ngimbi. Since then Ngimbi went on to win the It’s Showtime 70kg MAX title from Murat Direcki and has gotten a lot of international attention.

The first rounds saw Grigorian controlling the pace and changing levels with his strikes connecting with low kicks and shots to the body almost at will. Ngimbi working his flying knee from the inside, not off of the breaks and seeing about the same level of success, missing those shots. Grigorian starts opening up with his hands and is finding some success beginning to bully Ngimbi into the corners.

Grigorian opens up aggressive in the second round, actually going for a flying knee of his own. Grigorian once again bullying Ngimbi into the corners and opening up with his hands while Ngimbi looking to clinch to get separated. A big cut gets opened up on Ngimbi’s eye from keeping his head down and taking a knee to the face and the fight is called off.

Harut Grigorian wins via stoppage.


Giorgio Petrosyan is Not Dead

A part of me feels like that is the dumbest headline I'll write all week, but then again, it apparently is a story that needs some traction. There was an earthquake in Italy earlier today that was around 5.1 on the richter scale that sent shock through Northern Italy. To compound the issue, someone started a chain message that has spread throughout the fight industry in Europe that two-time K-1 World MAX Champion Giorgio Petrosyan was dead.

This happens all of the time, as I'm sure we all remember TMZ reporting that former UFC fighter Kimo Leopoldo was dead in 2009 and the amount of strange rumors that go around twitter daily revolving around Justin Bieber being a pedophile disguised as a child singer or of course being deceased. The good news is that not only is Kimo alive and kicking, but Giorgio Petrosyan is completely fine as well. Carlo DiBlasi sent out an email earlier today confirming that Petrosyan is fine and also asking anyone who has received a message stating Petrosyan is dead to try to help find the person responsible for spreading the rumor and to notify authorities.


Watch the Cro Cop Final Fight Press Conference Here

Mirko Cro Cop's return to Kickboxing is rapidly approaching and yesterday Final Fight held a press conference in Croatia to discuss the event at length with Mirko, some of the other fighters and promoters there. Cro Cop talks about not wanting to fool Croatian fans by bringing in some can for him to fight (yes, he uses the word can) and that Ray Sefo is a worth and difficult opponent. At this point in both of their careers it is safe to say that this fight is a competitive one, so he is not simply blowing smoke with that statement. Watch the rest of the video here as a humble and subdued Mirko discusses his return to kickboxing. On top of his return this is a crazy stacked card, so for more information hit up the official site.


It's Showtime Will Stream All 12 Fights Including Spong vs. Manhoef Live On January 28

Many fans have took to Twitter and Facebook to let It's Showtime know that they want the full fight card featuring 12 fights to be shown, rather than just 6 fights on the main card. It's Showtime has responded to the requests from its fans with some great news.

All 12 fights on this Saturday's It's Showtime card will be streamed on We'll all be able to see the great fights that we thought we never would, like Tyrone Spong vs. Melvin Manhoef and Yohan Lidon vs. L'houcine "Aussie" Ouzgni for the It's Showtime 73MAX World Title.

It's Showtime's undercard fights usually never see the light of day. With such a stacked card like this though, it was a good move to listen to the fans and stream the entire fight card.

HDNet will be showing the six fight main card portion featuring Badr Hari vs. Gokhan Saki and Daniel Ghita live. The undercard featuring Melvin Manhoef vs. Tyrone Spong and L'houcine "Aussie" Ouzgni vs. Yohan Lidon will be aired on February 3rd.

Great job by both It's Showtime and HDNet here in making the whole fight card available.
