Updated Bellator Kickboxing 10 Card: Petrosyan vs. Allazov, Ross vs. Varga

This weekend at Bellator Kickboxing 10 we’re set to see one of the best fights of the year in Giorgio Petrosyan vs. Chingiz Allazov. Allazov has been rising up the ranks at lightweight, losing to Sitthichai in 2014 and going on — get this — a 28-fight win streak. Heading into this bout with Petrosyan there’s no doubt that this is the best competition that Petrosyan has faced since either 2015 or 2016 (depending on your view of Josh Jauncey or Jordan Watson), and one of those rare dream matches in kickboxing that is looking like it might actually happen.

Bellator Heads to Rome For Bellator Kickboxing 10 Featuring Two Title Fights

On July 14th Bellator heads to Rome and will be presenting Bellator Kickboxing 10. Thus far two fights have been made for the card and these two are a doozy. The first is a Lightweight World Championship bout between Giorgio Petrosyan and Chingiz Allazov. This is a tough fight for Petrosyan, with Allazov perhaps one of the best lightweights in the world right now (we currently have him ranked at #6) and a real test of where he’s at in his career. The second fight is one that Bellator has been looking to put together for a while now in [read more]

Full Bellator Kickboxing 9 Fight Card

Bellator Kickboxing has released the full fight card for Bellator Kickboxing 9, which happens this Friday, April 6th, airing at 11pm eastern on the Paramount Network (nee Spike TV).

Bellator Kickboxing 9 Main Event Revealed: Raymond Daniels vs. Djibril Ehouo

On Friday, April 6th Bellator Kickboxing returns with Bellator Kickboxing 9. The card has yet to be fully filled-out yet, but what has been officially announced is interesting, to say the least. The main event sees Raymond Daniels looking to defend the Bellator Welterweight Championship against Djibril Ehouo. Jorina Baars is also in action against Julie Burton. Perhaps the most interesting part of the whole card is the inclusion of heavyweight Alexey Ignashov. Ignashov has a storied career of ups and downs, mostly downs, sadly. Yet he’s still a fan favorite for the hardcore fans from yesteryear because of just [read more]

Bellator Kickboxing 8 Results: Schilling Defeats Verlinden, Varga Back on Winning Track

Bellator Kickboxing held their 8th event tonight, piggybacking off of Bellator MMA 190, in Florence, Italy. The card was packed with fan-favorite fighters who mostly did what they went out to do by picking up big wins, with the one anomaly being Kevin Ross losing via split decision to Hamza Imane. Gabriel Varga got back on the winning track with a TKO win over Roberto Gheorghita, after refocusing himself on the sport of kickboxing. Here’s a look at Varga.

Bellator Kickboxing 8 Features Joe Schilling vs. Filip Verlinden, Finally

For Filip Verlinden, it felt like his big break was never really going to happen. The Belgian fighter has fought wherever he was needed, from middleweight to heavyweight and everywhere in between, racking up wins and losses that never quite equated much of a streak in the bigger leagues, but was enough to keep him in the conversation as one of the elite fighters in kickboxing. After a few disappointing showings at light heavyweight, he finally made the drop to middleweight in 2014 and saw an interesting thing happen: he wasn’t just winning, he was beating some of the best [read more]

Kickboxing: In Need of Heroes Featuring Bellator Kickboxing’s Joe Schilling, Kevin Ross and Raymond Daniels

Nine years ago I made a conscious decision, one that I’ve second-guessed and celebrated, one that has helped me to become known as an “expert” in a field while feeling simultaneously curious to what would have happened if I had taken a different path. That, in a nutshell, is the sport of kickboxing. There are ups and downs, with the extremes being just that: extremes. Nine years ago, after almost fifteen years of consuming everything that I could in the realm of martial arts, from pro wrestling to early MMA to kickboxing and muay thai, I made the decision that [read more]
