Muay Thai Grand Prix Launching Kickboxing Grand Prix in 2017

UK-based Muay Thai Grand Prix has made a splash on the world muay thai scene with their exciting series of events this year, partnering up with Lion Fight based out of the United States to bring a more international feel to the largely British events. Now, after seeing success with muay thai, the promotion announced today that starting in 2017 they will also be promoting kickboxing events as well. 

Both promotions will operate together under the title of Grand Prix Combat Sports, with the first show being on April 1st at the O2 featuring both Muay Thai GP and Kickboxing GP events. They will be launching titles and be showcasing unique talents for the card, with the featured names for the league as follows; Jamie Whelan, Liam Wells, Luke Whelan, Kelly Haynes, Sarah Worsfold, Sevket Cerkez, Connor Stewart, Marley Zwanenberg, Paul Karpowicz and Rory Crawford.

The promotion will be working with Xplosion Fight Series based out of Europe as well and will hopefully have further partners to exchange talent with moving forward.

GLORY 34 DENVER RESULTS

Welterweight Title: Nieky Holzken def. Murthel Groenhart by Unanimous Dec - Round 1: Feeling out round for the most part until the last minute of the round, Murthel landing nice jabs and a nice uppercut through the round while Holzken is landing hard inside leg kicks and looking busier than his usual first round. Round 2: All Holzken this round landing lots and lots of low kicks which are taking their toll now. Round 3: More of the same from Holzken hes running away with this fight. Murthel is not throwing enough and standing around too much to get low kicked. This is a different Holzken that we have seen in the past 2 years, no more standing around covering up, hes moving and kicking much more. Round 4: Closer round with Groenhart starting to go for broke, nothing landing clean though but Nieky keeps just losing his balance and getting up very slowly but that's been happening for the past 3 rounds. Round 5: Great round for Groenhart but it seems like too little too late he sat back too many rounds in the beginning of the fight, he landed lots of punches and some hard knees to the body but couldn't put hurt Nieky enough to drop him.

Middleweight Co-Headline Bout: Israel Adesanya  def. Yousri Belgaroui by Split Dec- Round 1: Israel looking calm slipping punches and trying to counter but not landing too many clean strikes but still lands more than Belgaroui who is missing a lot. Round 2: Emotions getting to Israel a bit making him stand and trade instead of picking Belgaroui off like the first round allowing himself to be hit more, very close round. Round 3: Ugh, another close round Israel landing the cleaner, harder shots but Belgaroui throwing more and landing more little shots, hard fight to judge.

Simon Marcus def. Dustin Jacoby by TKO Rd 1 (doctor stoppage) - Round 1: Great round for Jacoby, countering kicks with his front kick (teep) and landing nice punches but Marcus lands a hard knee and hurts Jacoby right at the end of the round. Doctor ends up stopping the right before the 2nd round due to Jacoby having an injured (possibly broken) right arm.

Middleweight Tournament Semi-Final: Israel Adesanya def. Robert Thomas by Unanimous Dec - Round 1: Entertaining first feel out round for the 2 fighters Israel wobbling Thomas once during the round with a right hand giving him the round. Round 2: Hesitant Thomas ends up walking into a really hard left knee to the body and gets an 8 count. Israel didn't push too hard to finish the fight though so Thomas makes it through. Round 3: Again and all Adesanya fight controlling the fight and keeping Thomas guessing. With 15 seconds left in the round Israel lands a left high kick and drops Thomas for the 2nd time in the fight.

Middleweight  Tournament Semi-Final: Yousri Belgaroui def. Ariel Machado by Unanimous Dec - Round 1: Even round, Belgaroui trying to keep distance while Machado landing good low kicks, fighters exchange some slightly angry nudges after the bell. Round 2: Machado slowing down a lot this round could be because he was a late replacement. Belgaroui trying many flying knees and just being the busier fighter but needs to start blocking low kicks. Round 3: Both guys looking extremely tired, I cant imagine either of them fighting again tonight. Machado landed all the more damaging shots this round Belgaroui took tired to throw any power at all. Lets hope for their sake there isn't an extra round.

GLORY 34 SUPERFIGHT SERIES RESULTS

Featherweight Title: Robin van Roosmalen def. Gabriel Varga by TKO Rd 4 (corner stoppage) - Round 1: Varga looking great with his hands keeping his punches long but still ends the round with a cut over the right eye and Robin with blood coming from his nose but varga still much more active, Vargas round. Round 2: Varga gets dropped with a left hook early and he stands up and tells the ref his corner had forgot to put his mouth guard in so that hook chipped his tooth. Robin drops Varga again with a combo, liver punch doing the most damage. Varga up at 8, not looking good but survives the round. Round 3: Another rough round for Varga getting pushed around the ring but Robin. Robin really looks strong at this weight and now hes landing a lot of leg kicks. Round 4: Robin again pressing Varga again and landing some hooks and seems to be gaining momentum. End of the round has Robin unleashing hell on Varga on the ropes, Varga is so tough and staying up. Vargas corner stops the fight after round 4.

Saulo Cavalari def. Brian Douwes by Unanimous Dec - Round 1: Both guys throwing heavy hands all round but Cavalari landing hard leg kicks as well. Douwes clinching a little too much and getting warned by the ref. Round 2: All Cavalari low kicking a tiring Douwes to hell. Round 3: Both guys tiring and nothing significant this round but still Cavalari's round.

Thongchai Sitsongpeenong def. Casey Greene by KO Rd 2 - Round 1: One sided round with Sitsongpeenong landing many punches and hurting Greene twice even dropping him at the end of the round but the ref called no down. Round 2: Sitsongpeenong smashes Greene with a few more right hands and knocks him down for an 8 count. Greene stands up and is on terribly wobbly legs but the ref lets him keep going and take some unnecessary punishment as the commission is waving it off from outside the ring, Greene gets floored with another left hook. 

Richard Abraham def. Mike "Blood Diamond" Mathetha by Unanimous Dec - Round 1: Awkward first round for both guys Mathetha landing some hard left kicks though. Round 2: was going well for Blood Diamond until Abraham landed a front kick to his knee and hyper extended Mathetha's knee now hes got a nasty limp. Round 3: Mathetha has ridiculous heart, his leg was buckling with every kick he threw but he kept kicking all round and firing back at Abraham. Abraham really should have been kicking more he may have been able to at least score a knockdown.

Justin Houghton def. Jonathon Wyderko by Split Dec - Round 1: pretty even round Houghton throwing many flying knees with no success but probably won the round on being active. Round 2: no more flying knees by Houghton and a much closer round but his chin is getting very high he needs to be careful. Round 3: Both too tired tired to throw anything of note not a very good round.
