We're trying something a bit different this time. Instead of a show where we run down an upcoming card, we [possibly intentionally] waited and instead, Jay and myself talk about the fights that went down at GLORY 41. There's a lot of talk about Rico Verhoeven, the heavyweight division, Ismael Lazaar, who fits where and why Rico hasn't been defending his title.
We also talk about our gripes with kickboxing remaining three-three-minute rounds, the clinch rules and how kickboxing needs to find their guy to grow.
LiverKick Podcast June 15, 2017 – GLORY 42 Post Show, K-1 Japan Preview and More
That’s right we’re back with another edition of the LiverKick Podcast. This time we follow-up on what was GLORY 42, give a quick rundown of the upcoming KNOCKOUT card in Japan and preview what looks like another really awesome K-1 World Grand Prix in Japan event that is happening this weekend.
Some of the topics include how GLORY got perhaps some of the best press in years with the post-fight shenanigans in the Murthel Groenhart/Harut Grigorian fight, but is that really good press for the company? Also, didn’t the Mayweather/McGregor announcement just completely eclipse all of that? Also Nieky Holzken’s complaining about losing fair-and-square to Cedric Doumbe twice now and damn, that K-1 Japan card is great, but why not just call it MAX anymore?
