Golden Glory’s 10th anniversary show is in the books, and our friends at BloodyElbow stayed in on this lovely afternoon to give us the results to this event, which was strange to say the least. The big stories coming out of this are Gerges defeating K-1 World Grand Prix entrant Ruslan Karev by decision, Alistair Overeem crushing YAMMA vet (lol) Tony Sylvester with clinch knees into a standing guillotine choke, Semmy Schilt being Semmy Schilt over Alexey Ignashov, the guy that people used to talk a lot about but don’t anymore.
The Nieky Holzken/Faldir Chahbari bout was easily the best of the evening, with Holzken opening up a nasty cut before the third round was up and going into the extension round like a house on fire. It was a great back and forth contest that kickboxing fans should seek out. The even itself was strange, as it took place in what looked like a giant night club to an invite-only audience who were fed a meal while they watched and Bas Rutten provided the ringside announcing as well as provided some absolutely out there commentary. Bas Rutten doing one-man commentary included him talking about the music and how he hates that people want the “Old Bas” back, because he never left, he just doesn’t care about being professional anymore. Basically, he is nuts.
