FFC 30 Kickboxing Results: Shkodran Veseli New Welterweight Contender

FFC 30 happened this Saturday in another mixed-bout card that saw the big MMA appeal in Satoshi Ishii picking up another quick submission victory in round one, but the kickboxing portion is what we are interested in, in a night that saw Shkodran Veseli score a round two TKO victory over Dimitrios Chiotis to score himself a Welterweight Championship bout against Eyevan Danenberg  in the future. Samo Petje scored a win over Eduard Chelariu, Rene Wimmer TKO’d Budimir Bajbic in R1, Meletis Kuboubavas with a TKO over Giorgi Bazanov in R3. Formerly-ranked in the LiverKick Rankings lightweight Teo Mikelic picked [read more]

WGP 41 Sees Draw in Super Lightweight Championship Bout

WGP held their 41st event on Saturday, in an event that saw the semifinals and finals of their Super Lightweight Challenger Grand Prix. Nicolas Vega picked up the win in the finals over Vitor Oristanio via unanimous decision to challenge the winner of the main event in the future. The main event saw two-division champion Paulo Tebar take on challenger Jordan Kranio in a bout that actually ended in a draw, making things a bit ambiguous moving forward for the division. Sure, there’s a new challenger, but Kranio perhaps deserves another crack at that title now. WGP # 41 – [read more]

It’s been three months, which means that it’s once again that time for the quarterly LiverKick Rankings update. Jay Jauncey and myself (Dave Walsh) have gone through the records for each fighter and updated the Official LiverKick Rankings accordingly. Let’s dive right into the changes.

Giorgio Petrosyan Scores 100th Career Victory Over Chris Ngimbi

This past weekend at a Giorgio Petrosyan-promoted event, Petrosyanmania, Giorgio Petrosyan scored his 100th professional career win over former It’s Showtime Lightweight Champion Chris Ngimbi. Ngimbi had initially announced his shocking retirement in 2012, only to rescind on that where he’s continued to compete on the fringes of the top of the 70kg heap. Needless to say, Giorgio Petrosyan was perhaps too strong of a challenge for him at this point, although he put forth a valiant effort. The match, which was a rematch from 2008 where Petrosyan defeated Ngimbi, saw Petrosyan once again have his hand raised.

LiverKick Podcast October 16, 2017: GLORY 45 and 46 Extravaganza

With GLORY pumping out big events in rapid-succession we decided to hold off on covering GLORY 45 via podcast until GLORY 46 happened to give everyone a one-two-punch. Plus Jay may have been sick and without much of a voice for a week. Maybe. Anyway, a lot has been going on in the world of kickboxing, from Sitthichai’s WLF tournament win to challenge Yi Long, a new Enfusion Heavyweight Champion and of course the two big GLORY events. That left us with a lot to talk about, although we tried to not go on too long. Because while I’m sure [read more]
