This is what a lot of us have been waiting for; what will GLORY do with those "Super Fight Series" fights on their undercards? We spoke with them and found out that they'd be on their website, but it wasn't clear when they'd appear and if they'd cost money to watch or not. Well, today we stirred to find a nice surprise; the GLORY 10 undercard is up on their site and it is entirely free! That means that the fights that you missed can be viewed now on GLORY's website on demand for absolutely free while we get excited over GLORY 11 Chicago.
Here is the breakdown;
This weekend in Chicago at GLORY 11, Tyrone Spong will step into the ring against Nathan "Carnage" Corbett, the man that he met back in 2009. While the fight was officially ruled a draw, Tyrone looks at it as a loss, as he had lost the fight before Carnage kept going after the bell, which changed the official outcome of the bout. Spong has a chance to once again prove that he's the best in the world at Light Heavyweight, but why not take a look back to when he won the right to call himself that?
This latest episode of King of the Ring shows what went down backstage for Spong.Add a comment
GLORY 11 Chicago goes down this weekend, yes, this weekend! Saturday, starting at 9pm Eastern time GLORY 11 Chicago will be on, delivering a Heavyweight tournament featuring the best Heavyweights in the world as well as Tyrone Spong vs. Nathan "Carnage" Corbett. The event will be broadcast in North America on Spike TV, which is a landmark event for us here in America. For those of you not lucky enough to live here in the US and get Spike TV, LiverKick has you covered, as we'll be once again carrying a live stream of the event, which can be ordered from anyone around the world, excluding the United States and ex-YU nations due to television rights.
The PPV will feature the main GLORY 11 fight card only as well.Add a comment
This video is both fascinating and frustrating, as Albie Hecht, the founder of Spike TV sits down to talk about how the deal between Spike TV and the UFC first came to be. As we all know, the UFC's deal with Spike TV happened and it opened up the market to MMA and helped to save the UFC from an untimely demise. The UFC and MMA in general might have never "boomed" if it weren't for the support of Spike TV.
What's the worst part as a Kickboxing fan? Knowing that it could have been K-1 instead, but that Ishii and K-1 in general back then kind of blew it by being as shady as we all knew that they were. This video is utterly fascinating in that Spike went FIRST to Japan to speak with K-1 before the UFC and that Ishii believing that Hecht insulted his geisha led to K-1 being more than just a Japanese brand and possibly the biggest combat sports brand in the world went up in smoke just like that.
As we've known, K-1 rarely thought about the American market in a serious way, as multiple K-1 USA heads (Scott Coker and Mike Kogan) have spoke about how shows in the US were geared towards Japanese audiences and television and more for saying that they ran shows in the US than to build up the brand and sport here in America. Even when both tried to build up K-1 in the USA, K-1 seemed disinterested in any money coming from the US. Just bonkers. We all do remember K-1 blowing it in China a few years ago, too, right? FIKA? Thanks to our old mothership for the discovery.Add a comment
Tyrone Spong is a name that has jumped up in value over the past few years after cutting his teeth on the international muay thai and kickboxing circuit in a dizzying amount of weight classes. Spong has fought not only some of the best in the world in one or two weight classes, but in just about every weight class between 70kg and Super Heavyweight in the span of his career, with one fight against Nathan “Carnage” Corbett standing out as the one that fans wanted to see happen again. GLORY is making precisely this happen at GLORY 11 Chicago this weekend, live on Spike TV.
LiverKick.com caught up with Tyrone Spong earlier this week to discuss the fight with Carnage and he has a very mature way of viewing the first bout with Carnage, when asked if he considers it a draw or a loss; “Oh no, no man, for me personally it’s a loss. You know, according to the rules and the commission they call it a no contest. That’s not on me, you know, I don’t make the rules, I just fight according to them. To me personally though, I consider that a loss and now I have the chance to avenge that loss, so we’ll see.” Add a comment
