SuperKombat is back on May 12 after a successful event on February 25 in Montenegro. This time the event is back in Romania, in Cluj Nopaca. Featured on the card are the usual top Romanian fighters, like the Stoica brothers, Raul Catinas and Benny Adegbuyi.
A very interesting part of the card is that Bogdan Stoica will be fighting for the new SuperKombat -85kg World Title. The title is starting off vacant and Stoica will be fighting a to be announced opponent for it. SuperKombat introduced a middleweight (-72kg) title last year, which Albert Kraus won. It's also good to see that Bogdan will be at -85kg where he is one of the best fighters.
As per usual, there will be a one night, four man tournament, with the winner qualifying for the SuperKombat World Grand Prix Final at the end of the year that as of right now features Catalin Morosanu, Ismael Londt, Sergei Lascenko, Pavel Zhuravlev and Erhan Deniz. The two semi-finals feature Raul Catinas against Daniel Sam and Jairzinho Rozenstruik against Wieslaw Kwaniewski. Benny Adegbuyi fights Sammy Tevette in the reserve match.
Some more SuperKombat regulars are in super fights. Andrei Stoica fights Rodney Glunder while Redouan Cairo fights Sebastian Ciobanu. Andrei Stoica and Redouan Cairo fought at the last SuperKombat event to a very controversial decision that ended up being a draw, and Cairo was promised a rematch but it appears that it won't happen at this event, at least.
