    Long time MMA fan here but the circus that has been the UFC as of late has been a major buzz kill.

    I’d like to get into kickboxing though. Does anyone have any tips in terms of like crash-course type highlights and whatnot. Also how and when to watch live.

    Thanks guys.

    Superfight Series is on UFC Fightpass. Main Card should be on ESPN 3 and ESPN 2 for US viewers.

    Glory is taking January off and next even is February 16 in Chicago, no full card yet but a couple good fights on it at least. Usually it's about an event per month kind of pace. Glory events are basically split into 2 parts, the numbered "main card" and Superfight Series part before that. SFS isn't really any lower quality than the main card so don't think of it as an under card or anything like that.

    You seem US based so, main cards stream live on ESPN 3, delayed or sometimes live on ESPN2. SFS live on Fight Pass with the subscription.

    The last event was pretty good and at least the SFS part is on Fight pass if you are a subscriber and want to watch something then maybe check that out.

    That event they also had a special 4 fight extra PPV portion at the top of the card titled Glory Redemption. The main event was great so maybe see if that's available somewhere, it is on Fight Pass too but might have to pay extra for that. Rico Verhoeven vs. Jamal Ben Saddik.

    Oh here's a short couple months out of date video about the top of the divisions.

    After that Tiffany timebomb lost her title to Anissa Meksen and Simon Marcus lost his to Alex Pereira. Vakhitov defended against Machado and Verhoeven beat Bigfoot.

    Last event condenced into an hour.


    During fight week Glory does some short videos leading up to the fights, guess those could be quite good to watch specially if you're just trying to get into it.

    What about both sittichai vs robin van roosmalen fights, both simon marcus vs jason wilnis fights, and all of cedric doumbes title defenses and when he won the title from nieky holzken, RVR is my favorite dutch kickboxer he is such a inspiration to me taking on guys who are bigger then him and putting on a beatdown on them knocking them down even when their stronger or taller then him.

    The main organisations to follow are Glory, Kunlun and K-1 I would say. You can find information about the next Glory events and how to watch live on their site: https://www.glorykickboxing.com and Twitter page: https://twitter.com/GLORY_WS?ref_src=twsrc^google|twcamp^serp|twgr^author

    This sub-forum (Muay Thai and Kickboxing) is pretty good to keep up to date with the upcoming fights and news, especially those threads:

    What kind of highlights are you looking for?

    If you want fight highlights here's an example:



    That channel will actually give you a bit of background and info about kickboxing, its history, its stars etc. https://vimeo.com/user15671629

    Also if you have UFC Fight Pass you should be able to watch all the K-1 and It's Showtime events.

    Now if you want to follow active kickboxers in Glory, I'd recommend following Rico Verhoeven, Artem Vakhitov, Alex Pereira, Yousri Belgaroui, Murthel Groenhart, Cédric Doumbé, Nieky Holzken, Sitthichai Sitsongpeenong, Robin Van Roosmalen, Petchpanomrung Kiatmookao, Serhiy Adamchuk, etc.

    Outside of Glory, Buakaw is good to follow (one of my personal favourites), here's some of his recent fights:





    Another fighter I'd recommend checking out, who unfortunately is now retired from Kickboxing is Tyrone Spong (again another of my favourites). He had some great fights showing great technique, combos and power.

    Start watching old K-1 fights and fall in love with Kickboxing. Feel dissapointed when K-1 vanishes, but enjoy the next best thing called It's Showtime. Not as good as K-1 but still pretty awesome.
    Feel dissapointed again as Glory buys It's Showtime, so focus also on Glory and SuperKombat. after watching a few events... head back to UFC/Bellator and appreciate what they have going on there!

    I fucking love kickboxing now, and there is a ton of it to watch on UFC Fight Pass! Almost all the K-1 events up to 2010, almost all the It's Showtime events and all the Glory events! Started from the beginning of K-1, so far the 94' & 95' K-1 GP's have been fucking great! Starting the 1996 K-1 World Grand Prix right now.

    Start by watching K-1 max 2004, 2005, 2006



    FYI Glory is not the only kickboxing promotion out there. Kunlun Fight and K-1 also put on good fights. Liverkick and Combatpress have news and rankings (although somewhat flawed) for current fighters.

    I should have also stated Musashi vs Bernardo was thrilling as well. Bernardo has been KO'ing dudes left and right in every GP. Then he runs into Musashi who looks like a Lightweight in comparison, and the much smaller Asian Rocky gives him a fight! It was close too until the knockdown, still couldn't stop him though. I look forward to more of Musashi's career hopefully there are other fights of his available on Fight Pass.

    Damn Hug could throw bombs with them hands, great great fight, but I thought Hoost controlled more of the fight and should have won. Still, not mad at the result.

    Wait a second, they raised Hug's hand after 3 rounds but than both Hug and Hoost went back to their corners and got ready for another round?? I thought they declared Hug the winner, why are they fighting another round? I'm at work which is why it's taking so long to get through this fight, but I don't understand why they would raise Hug's arm when reading the decision, then send the fighters back out for round 4.

    *edit* And they just did it again? Now there is going to be a round 5?? I mean don't get me wrong it's been a great fight so I don't mind the bonus rounds. I would just like to understand why they are doing them.
