    that's a shame but I was really surprised in the first place when it was supposed to happen.

    and when did van Roosmalen gain his nickname "Pokerface"? who the fuck calls him "Pokerface"?

    He's had that nickname for ages and his team mates who gave him that nickname because they can't read his emotions, for example they can't tell when he's tired or hurt. He always has the same face expression.

    He talks about it in this interview:

    And a lot of them in Europe, that's great news. This means not only I can watch the events live from home or travel to them, but also this should make for better cards with more skilled fighters.

    @Mafanofe

    Hey man how are you doing?

    I just saw a headline in a local website saying "gaúcho fighter gets fight in biggest kickboxing organization in the world" but I can't open the full article. do you have any idea who this might be and which org they're talking about? I would guess Diego Gaúcho who fights ~85kg iirc in WGP but not sure at all.

    hey bro,im good,just a lot busy

    i dont heard anything about it but its probably going to be added on glory,since glory have some former wgp names on their roaster

    @Kanka
    your post about the cholitas luchadoras from bolivia revealed a future plot twist on my life,i am going to live in Corumbá now,2 minutes car distance from bolivia,the city is in the famous Brazillian Pantanal by itself,there were literally jaguars and Anacondas walking around the city,drug dealers in each corner and one of the worst internet services of the country :(

    at least i am going to attend all the Chollitas fights i can get,i will invade this thread with her fights that i am going to record

    hahaha that is old school soccer narrator Silvio Luiz don't you know him? he was the best soccer narrator in the 90's and is still kicking ass it seems!

    I had no idea he had ever done kickboxing narration, great call by Band Sports. they probably brought him simply due to flavor text, he's always had the best sense of humor and funny tirades.

    it's an awesome idea as every kickboxing broadcast is uninformative and unfunny to boot so with Silvio it is at least funny and exciting. just have him read a press release before the fights and he's light years ahead of grisham.
