    Yup.

    Taiga vs Takeru III cancelled, Gonnapar vs Rukiya cancelled, Anpo Riku and Matsukura Shintaro on Big Bang cancelled. Fucking Japanese kickboxing.

    Try Hard gym--Hiroya's place--has cancelled its contract with K-1.

    We don't know why at the moment, but the running rumor is that they got pissed off cause Taiga wanted to fight Tenshin on NYE and K-1 wouldn't let them.

    Yikes. Where do all the Try Hard Gym fighters go from there? I mean I'm sure they will all find promotions to fight, but cancelling connections ( off all try hard fighters) over the Tenshin fight, sounds a bit much.

    I hope we going to see Taiga vs Tenshin atleast now.

    All the Try Hard guys have been tweeting passive aggressive shit all week and Tenshin has been liking every one of those posts.

    My money is on RISE/KNOCK OUT

    Who are all the big names from Try Hard? Could lead to some interesting matches in China.

    In so far as I'm speculating. RIZIN has made some noise about doing a spinoff kickboxing org to appease Tenshin and they've dropped hints that their year won't be structured around a GP but is planning "something else big that would cause controversy"

    @Karaev fan any idea why rizin does not use Japanese kb rules/mt and instead uses regular kb/k1 rules? You would figure since it was an mma organization they would allow elbows and clinch especially when the only fighter they are featuring is used to those rules

    No good answer for you I'm afraid. In the past Japanese TV promotions shied from allowing elbows cause they wanted to avoid cuts on national TV, but that explanation doesn't really make sense with them allowing elbows for some MMA bouts.

    My 2nd guess would be because they're interested in poaching talent from K-1/Krush/Rise that aren't used to elbows. We'll see what ruleset they go with when they actually start up doing kickboxing more. They had a few K-1 officiated bouts and a few 'RIZIN kick' bouts (whatever that means), but not sure what they land on on a consistent basis

    So you know how K-1 Japan doesn't have a 60kg champ now that Taiga has been stripped?

    We assumed that meant that Takeru would fight for a vacant title, NOPE! They put together a one night tournament for the mega card to decide their new champion

    QF1: Koji vs Urabe Hirotaka
    QF2: Komiyama Kosuke vs Suarek Rukkamui
    QF3: Takeru vs Stauros Exakoustidis
    QF4: Goshyu Masanobu vs Timur Nadrov

    Did K1 come out with an official statement why they parted ways with Taiga?
