SuperKombat's 2013 came to a close after their last SuperKombat WGP event that saw new champions crowned in many divisions, including a SuperKombat WGP Champion for the third year running. As SuperKombat looks ahead into 2014 they have decided to begin licensing out the brand to interested promoters to help to bring SuperKombat to more cities than they alone could do. It's an interesting idea that we've seen other promotions do, namely K-1 over the past year with their K-1 World Tour events, which can make everyone happy.
SuperKombat gets money from licensing out the brand, as well as finds new talent from these promoters, while the promoters get to promote a larger brand with their own local stars. Fighters also get experience on a show with a solid name brand and can leverage that for more opportunities in the future. It's a win-win for everyone.
“Those kind of events are not organized by SUPERKOMBAT® Fighting Championship but the promoters can get the license to host the elimination bouts. The winners of these qualification fights will have their places in SUPERKOMBAT® Fighting Championship’s events, including the New Heroes and the World Grand Prix series. On the other hand, all the events and qualification fights included in other events will be announced exclusively on SUPERKOMBAT® Fighting Championship’s website at www.superkombat.com," added Eduard Irimia.

This Friday, January 3rd, at the PAttaya World Boxing Stadium in Thailand Yokkao will present their sixth major event, their first of this year. We've been hearing about it for a while and now we have the full matchmaking for Friday's event, including a few interesting fights! The main event between Sittichai and Wanchalerm also includes the carrot of a KO bonus for either man if they can knock the other one add, an added incentive for sure.
GLORY likes to wrap up events by posting videos showing what went down at them and GLORY 13 was no different. GLORY 13 saw Nieky Holzken hold onto his top spot in GLORY's Welterweight division as well as legends squaring off in the Heavyweight division. So watch the highlights of GLORY's last show for 2013 while you celebrate the new year.Add a comment

At least we know for sure that Denver isn't happening now, right? I mean, sure, that is a bummer as I live 6 hours from Denver proper, about seven from Broomfield, but then again, I'm not sure that I'd want to drive to Denver in the middle of February. Anyway, this means that we now have a bit of an extended break that GLORY was planning to do originally with their first show of the year being in Zagreb, Croatia on March 8th. This means that yes, the long-rumored Remy Bonjasky vs. Mirko Cro Cop fight is indeed going down as the main event.
There is no further information about the event yet, but word has been that this will be Remy Bonjasky's retirement bout, although you can never tell. GLORY 13 was supposed to be Peter Aerts' retirement and it's not clear if that will hold up at all in Japan.Add a comment
This weekend the K-1 World MAX Quarter Finals in Foshan will be coming your way live via Epicentre.tv's PPV if you live outside of China, and if my traffic records indicate anything, you probably do. So you might not want to miss this awesome card from K-1, including Buakaw Banchamek, Saenchai, Shane Campbell and more. The event costs $20 and takes place on December 28th at 6am Eastern time.
UPDATE: The event has started now, much earlier than projected time.

When it comes to television ratings on Kickboxing events, we've been forced to be extremely patient as American fans both warm up to the sport of Kickboxing and learn when and where to watch it, something that all combat sports fans are familiar with. So while GLORY has had a bit of a slow start on Spike TV, the ratings have shown improvement for every single event. Going into GLORY 13 there were definitely some lingering concerns that any momentum gained would be lost due to the nature of the event; tape delayed from Japan with results readily available 12 hours before the broadcast.
Yet, those fears seem to be unfounded as GLORY 13 was able to pull in what I'd consider a tremendous number at 659,000 viewers on average. Take into account UFC's ratings on Fox Sports 1 fall within this range and that the UFC is a well-established brand and this is even more amazing to consider. Also consider that it is in the range of Bellator events on Spike TV as well. The final factor to consider is that it was on tape delay which will of course deter some viewers, yet, there was still an increase of 38% from the previous event.
When talking television there is also talk of peak numbers, the numbers when there are the most viewers for the given program. The last few events have seen a lone peak early on, which we consider a bleedover effect from the previous program, COPS, which always tends to pull in a million and a half or so. So the first peak was at 9:11 at 905,000 which is expected. The thing is, there was a second peak that came at 10:42pm, near the tail end of the event, and that was 873,000, which is nothing short of tremendous.Add a comment
