The punches in bareknuckle are generally less powerful because they don't have the added mass of gloves and fighters are worrying about breaking hands but I don't know how much that matters in the big picture when full bore headkicks are involved

I bet against K-1


I like how we're ignoring they're loving headbutting each other.

Also I spent days trying to penetrate the Burmese internet to figure out how to watch this event live and I'm coming up empty. Canal + Myanmar doesn't stream, fox sports Asia doesn't have the event on their schedule and Burmese streaming inst a big enough market for our Russian pirate friends. I think some Burmese people on youtube just youtube streamed the last event live which I assume worked because I doubt WLC has a big anti-piracy team but I don't even know when the event is airing EST to even look for the streams. I was going to try and skype some random Burmese WLC fans to figure out how to watch this but I've been busy.

Heroic effort

Yes, the pay cut is probably not worth it, but I don't think a decently wrapped fist is any less damaging (in the rock your brain sense) than big gloves. Smaller surface area could mean better chance of cracking an orbital or jaw. Though it is somewhat gated by trying not to punch so hard as to break your hand during the fight.

That and the knees, elbows, and kicks are all the same as normal kickboxing.

Definitely looked to me like they were trying to glance their punches to set up other stuff instead of turning their hands into bags of sand and blood

I find your lack of faith... disturbing

I remember watching some of that years ago and being impressed with the body punching. I saw a lot of long hooks to the ribs that you don't really see in other sports

I also remember there being basically no warning when a child fight was starting, a tradition that is probably going to be a problem for syndication

Lol yikes

Another thing to consider with the head punches is that since they donít make all that much, a hand injury is even worse news. In boxing a guy can let loose a bit when he gets big cause a million dollar purse takes you a long way. These guysí checks, not so much

Not too sure anyone cares but Khaos did an event today.

Khaos.6

Results are on this page and I'm looking for any of the stream VODs or whatever to link as well.

https://www.k-1.co.jp/schedule/16476/



In addition K-1 is doing a 90kg Tournament on the 24th.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018_...orld_Tournament

Cruiserweight 90 kg (Quarterfinals) - OD-KEN vs. Sina Karimian
Cruiserweight 90 kg (Quarterfinals) - K-JEE vs. Brian McGrath
Cruiserweight 90 kg (Quarterfinals) - Hitoshi Sugimoto vs. England Aundre Groce
Cruiserweight 90 kg (Quarterfinals) - Makoto Uehara vs. Masinissa Hamaili
Cruiserweight 90 kg (Reserve) - RUI vs. Furuta Taichi

Kind of wish I knew there was an event a bit earlier because I could've gone to Japan for that event.

If anyone speaks mandarin, Guo Chendong has a book coming out about his time running Glory of Heroes. He's promising to name names but I kind of doubt he will do anything other than jerk himself off for 200 pages.

Also, everyone else might have seen this but Philip Kimura, the Japanese guy who looks exactly like rory macdonald, proposed to his pornstar girlfriend last month. I don't know if that means he's taking time off or what

I want to believe that you searching so hard for lethwei tricked WLC into thinking there's Western demand for it

You singlehandedly brought lethwei to the world
