K-1

K-1 returned to one of their host cities of the past year in Mallorca, Spain where they hosted The Battle for Spain. The Battle for Spain streamed live around the world for free thanks to an agreement with Australia betting site TopBetta. The event saw many Spanish mainstays in a very fan-friendly event that sent everyone home happy. The main event saw Maximo Saurez defeat Sergio Sanchez in a three-round war, with Suarez announcing post-fight his intentions to fight Buakaw Banchamek soon. It is unclear if this is an official fight or not seeing as though K-1 still has Buakaw vs. Enriko Kehl for the K-1 World MAX Finals on the burner, waiting to simmer.

 

  • Maximo Suarez (R3 - Decision) Sergio Sanchez
  • Moises Ruibal (R3 - Decision) Denis Marjanovic
  • Mario Agatic (KO) George Colin
  • El Medhi (R3 - Decision) Juan Taltavull
  • Moises Baute (R3 - Decision) Carmelo Fernández
  • Miodrag Olar (R3 - Decision) Dario Ibañez
  • Cristian Barrionuevo (TKO) Xavier Flotats

Glory

Yes, it is that time. For those outside of the United States, GLORY 15 goes live right now. We'll be running live results throughout the event, so be warned that yes, there will be spoilers for those waiting to watch the event on Spike TV or other tape delayed markets. Don't say that we didn't warn you.

  • GLORY SuperFight Series
  • Hedsy Gerges (R2 - TKO) Jhnota Diniz
  • Mourad Bouzidi (R3 - Decision) Randy Blake
  • Filip Verlinden (R3 - Decision) Israel Adesanya
  • Jonatan Oliveira (R3 - Decision) Atakan Arslan
  • Niclas Larsen (R2 - TKO) Steve Moxon
  • Yodkhunpon Sitmonchai (R3 - Decision) Raz Sarkisjan
  • GLORY 15 ISTANBUL
  • Light Heavyweight Tournament: Gokhan Saki (R1 - TKO) Nathan Corbett - Saki looked pretty good thus far, but honestly we didn't see much of anything here. Saki hit a big left hook that hit Corbett's ear, then Corbett's chest was covered in blood. Either his cauliflower ear exploded or he ruptured an ear drum. Ouch.
  • Light Heavyweight Tournament: Tyrone Spong (R3 - Decision) Saulo Cavalari - What a brutal, all-out war. Saulo easily took round one before Spong came back in round two. This fight was incredible, with Saulo showing the world that he should not have been overlooked at all.
  • Danyo Ilungo (R1 - KO) Andrei Stoica - This went exactly as planned. Ilunga looked on-point and composed, landed a counter right hand that dropped Stoica who was unable to answer the referee's count.
  • Robin van Roosmalen (R3 - Decision) Marat Grigorian - Very good, back-and-forth fight that Robin should feel lucky that he was declared the winner in it. If Marat had more fans this fight would be considered a very controversial decision, but since Robin was the fan favorite, we won't hear much about it.
  • Light Heavyweight Tournament Finals: Gokhan Saki (R1 - TKO/Injury) Tyrone Spong - Ugh. Just no words to describe this. Spong was going for an outside leg kick when his shin made contact with Saki's knee early into round one. That was all that she wrote for his shin, which snapped on contact.

Cyborg

My god, this fight was just insanity. Cris Cyborg came into this fight as the favorite due to her MMA career, but Kickboxing fans knows who Jorina Baars is and knew that she'd cause some serious problems for Cyborg. Referee Tony Weeks had a hard time following the action and missed at least two knockdowns that should have been scored for Baars, one in round one, another in round four.

Baars

That being said, Baars dropped Cyborg in round one with a huge head kick after a push kick should have been considered a down. Jorina Baars put on the fight of her life, though. The spinning back kick that put Cyborg down in round five secured the fight for Baars in a fight that we were all fearing hearing the scorecards. Incredible fight and, c'mon, let's be honest here, this just makes Cris Cyborg vs. Ronda Rousey hype seem like a distant memory now.

Hoost

Ernesto Hoost made his return to the ring this weekend against Thomas Stanley where he was able to drop Stanley twice on the road to picking up a decision victory. This marks the first time that Hoost has competed in over eight years, marking a somewhat remarkable comeback. There are rumors of GLORY being interested in signing Hoost, but at 48 years old I think it's time to let Mr. Perfect do as he pleases and not worry about fighting guys like Daniel Ghita, Gokhan Saki or Tyrone Spong right now.

Yokkao

This weekend if there was one thing that I noticed, it was that fight fans in the UK were going ballistic over Yokkao 8, with everyone's favorite commentator Vinny Shoreman even calling it one of the best cards that he's ever witnessed, which comes as very high praise indeed. Yokkao once again proved to be one of the most consistent promotions in the world with churning out quality events, even working around some last minute visa issues and putting on a great show.

GLORY

Paul Daley

You could make a pretty good argument for Paul Daley to turn some heads within the GLORY organization with this weekend's bout with one of the top Welterweights within the organization at Siam Warriors in Cork, Ireland. It was Paul Daley's second Muay Thai/Kickboxing bout of the year and his second win, but this one is pretty huge as it was over #3 ranked (in GLORY) Alexander Stetsurenko in just fifteen seconds, which is a huge, huge win.

I'm not sure that it'll be enough for GLORY to overlook his inability to fight in the United States at the moment, but he'd make for a solid attraction for European events, right? ZProphet has the video.

FNF

Friday Night Fights bid February farewell last night with a card that featured a highly anticipated match between two well known professional female fighters. The main event of the evening, Ashley Nichols versus Angela Hill, highlighted the distinctive fighting styles of both women to full effect, and showed why both have struck such a strong chord within the North American Muay Thai community. For the first three rounds, Hill demonstrated the aggressive punching and clinching style that inspired her fight name of “Overkill.” The beautiful technique of Nichols was more visible in rounds four and five, when she used front push kicks and long knees to keep Hill from closing in as much, but it was too little too late. Hill won a split decision victory over Nichols, maintaining her undefeated record and winning the WKA North American Flyweight title.

The other pro fight of the evening featured another Canadian from MAS Academy, Robert “White Dragon” Thomas, versus Tarek Rached, the Lebanese Tiger. The powerful Rached bullied his much taller opponent until Thomas gained control of the distance in round two and three. Rached was rocked by a knee and saved by the bell in round two, but not before getting an 8-count. Another crisp right knee from Thomas ended the fight 59 seconds into round three, giving him the win by TKO.
