Enfusion Live ran their first event of the year today in the Netherlands, featuring a -54kgs Women's World Title fight between Ilona Wijmans (defending champion) and Denise Kiel Holtz. The fight went the distance with Ilona Wijmans proving any of the doubters wrong with a big win.
We are live! K-1 World MAX 2013 Quarter Final 2 in Gran Canaria is airing right now. Head over to the main page and check out up top where you'll find a link to watch the event live. As always, we'll be providing you with live results from the event, so stay tuned.
The year 2014 has had a bit of an odd start, as the first scheduled GLORY event for February is no longer scheduled and we won't get our first GLORY fix until March in Croatia. K-1 holds an event on January 11th in Gran Canaria, Spain, although the card has come down in prominence a bit with the loss of the Maximo Suarez vs. Shane Campbell fight. Hero Legends went down on the 3rd of January in Jinan, China, including some big names.
Yokkao 6 went down today in Thailand, with Yokkao pushing forward with their sixth numbered event which will hopefully be appearing on their YouTube channel some time soon. Here are the quick results from Pattaya, Thailand courtesy of Yokkao.
Honestly I'm really not sure what happened here, but the official start time was listed on Epicentre.tv at 20:00 AEST, which is Australian time, which translated to 6am Eastern time. Then it was magically changed to 15:00 or so, which is significantly earlier so if you are like me, you missed a good chunk of this show. The big news from the portions that I didn't get to see as I had no clue that the show was airing was that Saenchai has apparently lost, but I'm not sure the means in which it happened.
The bigger news is of course the two K-1 World MAX Quarter Final bouts, where Buakaw Banchamek and Zhou Zhi Peng squared off and Shane Campbell met Christopher Mena from Colombia. The first bout to air was Buakaw Banchamek vs. Zhou Zhi Peng, which served as the main event on Thai and Chinese television as both men were very hyped up in the local markets, as they should be. It was a knock down, drag out affair that saw Zhou fight up to Buakaw's level and the referees deciding that it should go to an extra round. There was some controversy as Buakaw was potentially injured and couldn't go on, but he sucked it up and got back in the ring, only to suffer an accidental headbutt from Zhou that opened him up. Buakaw went into full beast mode after that and walked away with the decision and Angry Buakaw was a sight to behold. Props to Zhou for a great fight, though.
Then in the second Quarter Final Shane Campbell showed the world that he's perhaps the most slept-upon talent at 70kg in the world as he just made Christopher Mena look like an amateur with his strikes. Campbell's hands and kicks were just too much and the body shots did most of the damage. Campbell dropped Mena twice, once in round two and once in round threebefore the bout went to a decision with Campbell taking it.
SuperKombat held their World Grand Prix Finals today in Romania, an event that saw their World Grand Prix tournament conclude in dramatic fashion and saw some SuperKombat favorites in some competitive, interesting bouts. There were two champions crowned in the Cruiserweight and Super Cruiserweight divisions, with Andrei Stoica winning the Super Cruiserweight Championship and Igor Bugaenko defeating his brother, Bogdan Stoica, to capture the Cruiserweight Championship. Frank Munoz went on to win the one night tournament, making him the SuperKombat 2013 WGP Champion.
Oh, and Lungu. Always Lungu.

GLORY 13 went down last night in the wee hours of the morning, I thank those of you that stayed up to watch the PPV here on LiverKick and apologize for my absence, but sometimes a man gets sick and things happen. Then sometimes you guys overload the site with traffic, which is really cool. Bravo (except for the downtime!). So I'm sure you are wondering who won what, right? Here is a rundown of both the GLORY SuperFight Series and GLORY 13 Tokyo.
If you are waiting for Spike TV later tonight then obviously you should not read the GLORY 13 section, which I'm going to place after a jump for those on the main page.
When Nathan "Carnage" Corbett made his GLORY debut at GLORY 11 Chicago against Tyrone Spong there were high hopes among seasoned Kickboxing and Muay Thai fans as Nathan Corbett has been tearing up opponents at Light Heavyweight for years now, but mostly in Australia. He's been the guy that everyone has wanted to switch over to Kickboxing for years, but honestly, his few stints into Heavyweight Kickboxing didn't bear fruit. With GLORY promoting more weight classes it seemed like a perfect fit, the only problem was he ran into Tyrone Spong in the prime of his fighting career and things didn't work out for him.
Carnage came back with a vengeance this weekend at Total Carnage IV from Gold Coast where he met Henriques Zowa from the Netherlands. How did it go? Well, it's Carnage and he's allowed to throw elbows. Carnage scored a stoppage via an elbow strike in the second round.Add a comment
MAX Muay Thai held their last event of the year, MAX Muay Thai The Final Chapter in Thailand today, which saw a huge main event featuring Buakaw Banchamek vs. Enriko Kehl, which always struck me as odd knowing that both Buakaw and Kehl will be fighting for K-1 on December 28th in separate fights, but hey, the more fights featuring these two the better, I say. There was also a 4-man tournament featuring Sagetdao, Andrei Kubelin, Victor Ngabe and Dylan Salvador.
Buakaw and Kehl fought a very tough fight, with Kehl looking good at first, but Buakaw really running away with the fight as it went on, opening up a nasty cut on Kehl's forehead which almost stopped the fight, but the doctors decided that he could continue. Kehl still landed some solid blows throughout, but Buakaw seemed to be on form and had an answer for everything Kehl threw at him.
