More recent results, this time from Japan’s KRUSH promotion. As K-1 considers adding smaller weight classes, Krush serves as a home to 65 kg and lower fighters, with winners in Krush looking to move up and take part in K-1 as the 65 kg division develops there. Think of it as K-1’s WEC.

Good win for Slowinski, and an unfortunate result for Parr who suffered a high profile loss at Champions of Champions 2 this summer, a loss in her MMA debut not long ago, and now a draw here. She is in need of a win soon to get back on track.

Ray Sefo made a successful return to MMA this weekend, defeating Kevin Jordan at the Strikeforce Challengers event. Despite earning the win, it was not a great showing for Sefo, who spent the latter half of round 1 on his back absorbing punches from the veteran Jordan. As round 2 got under way, Jordan suffered a knee injury, and Sefo was awarded the TKO victory. No footage is yet available online, but check out the photo highlights below:
One thing is clear – if Sefo plans to make the transition to MMA a permanent one, he needs to work on his ground game right away, as being controlled by the declining journeyman Jordan does not bode well for his long-term chances. Hopefully with some ring rust worked off he can tighten up his ground game, but at 38, time is certainly not on his side to implement large changes in his game. I like Sefo, and want to see him stick around, but I fear his time as a relevant fighter in either sport may be coming to a close.
So I set my alarm and actually ended up throwing my phone across the room. After waking up, piecing my phone back together, we are here with K-1 Final 16 results! These broadcasts tend to be a bit lengthy, so only 3 fights have been missed so far.
UPDATE: Filling in PBP for the fights I missed.
