I don't know about Miguel Torres but the loving nutso Dustin Jacoby suicide cult, trying to put Ky Hollenbeck in a title fight, and literally paying Marc de Bonte to not fight so they could put Raymond Daniels in the tournament were all Spike's doing

Also apparently K-1's Chinese TV deals haven't happened yet because of lawsuits, and they're implying that Glory are funding this, which is reasonable since there was a lot of confusion over the video library. In any case, K-1's going to be dogshit until they can get some investment, but in the meantime there's nothing from Chinese TV and their staff are already owed money again

Literally every kickboxing organization is unable to stay open for more than like 2 years, meanwhile a fat boxercise instructor who maybe met a mob guy once turned HUMAN COCKFIGHTING into a massively profitable sport. It'd be hilarious if it didn't deny us cool fights.

Mirko Cro Cop vs Sergei Kharitonov to headline Glory 17 Los Angeles June 21

quote:

Sergei Kharitonov is out of the Glory 17 main event. The Pride and Strikeforce veteran was scheduled to take on fellow Pride star Mirko Cro Cop at the main event of Glory 17 Los Angeles, however, a finger injury has forced Kharitonov to the sidelines for the next two months.

Prior to the Cro Cop vs. Kharitonov announcement, the much rumored main event was Cro Cop vs. Pat Barry, however, Barry's KO loss to Zack Mwekassa at Glory 16 put an end to that fight. Now, with the Kharitonov injury, Cro Cop is again without an opponent.

Glory is currently looking for a suitable replacement and an announcement is due soon. One strange name being tossed around is former UFC Heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia. Sylvia is 7-6 (1) since his 2008 departure from the UFC and has been fighting largely at Super Heavyweight. He's an interesting choice as it sets up a UFC vs. PRIDE showdown, but this is firmly in the camp of rumor, so don't bank on that Cro Cop vs. Sylvia showdown just yet.

Doesn't seem very credible, but if this happens.

I heard this rumour too, but Tim posted on twitter begging for support, so it probably came from him. Personally I think it'll probably be some busted old timer like JLB, but you never know given their penchant for bad MMA guys.

Speaking of which, Miguel Torres is signed, Noiri is no longer under contract. Lmao.

No.

Noiri was supposed to fight in Krush a couple of weeks ago for the 65kg belt but got injured. I guess he'll fight in Japan until the end of time. I'm really curious to know why he's no longer with Glory, if it's something on their side they're dumb for letting him go.

This is a very bizarre B-level Romanian kickboxing card where dudes have enough skill to defend and avoid getting KO'd but at the same time lack the skill to actually finish the fight. Really nearest anyone got to a fight-finishing move is a dick-kick that got a point deducted.

1. Crocop is now having a rematch with Jarrell Miller, the American boxer who beat him at the last "K-1" WGP and lost an absurd hometown decision

2. that tournament in Dubai went exactly as expected

3. The K-1 show in Thailand has been postponed due to the coup

4. Possibly related to the Noiri business, but something called the K-1 World League was announced, and as with all "world leagues" it naturally is Japanese fighters in Japan. It's being run by the guys who do Krush, and Krush owns. Dave Walsh doesn't seem to think it has anything to do with the other K-1 too.
