Enfusion Introducing Modified MMA Rules in Near Future

Enfusion is, perhaps, an interesting experiment in combat sports. Risen from the ashes of the purchase of It’s Showtime by GLORY, run by a lot of similar faces as before and helping to keep European kickboxing thriving while GLORY was busy globe-trotting. Since then, Enfusion has filled an important gap for fans in the Netherlands and surrounding areas all while cultivating some top prospects. Interestingly enough, Enfusion’s rules were, at first, a bit strange. It was kickboxing rules, which meant NOT muay thai, but there were points awarded for sweeps, dumps and takedowns. Think Shootboxing without the standing submissions. As [read more]

I’m pretty excited about that. I’ve always been a huge fan of kickboxing. I’ve been a big fan of GLORY. Anybody that follows me knows that I go to a ton of their shows. So, we [read more]

WATCH: Tenshin Nasukawa’s Decimation of Saiga at RIZIN

Kickboxing and muay thai sensation Tenshin Nasukawa has made a name for himself with a series of amazing performances in both 2016 and 2017 and last night was no different. In a Mixed Rules bout against former K-1 kickboxer Kizaemon Saiga Tenshin was dead set on not even letting it escape the first round, which was kickboxing, to enter into the MMA rounds. Not that he has a problem with MMA, though, as he’s shown against any of the competition that RIZIN has tossed at him that he’s more than game.

Weird, right? Saki, 0-1 in MMA, has signed an exclusive contract [read more]
