Starting aaaany minute now
Combat League event live as well http://live.qq.com/10079130
To what, Romulan?
It has all of their names translated right there...
Any vod's? I missed the live stream.
Little revamped website again. Think you need flash, cause that's still a thing in China :x
Kunlun Fight 79 starting now.
EM-Legend live also. This time streaming on Kunlun's app too, whatever that might mean.
Sergey/Sergei/Sergeii Kulyaba/Kuliaba, however you want to spell his name, won the 66 kg tournament. Always was a bit small for 70kg so guess this weight fits him much better. Basically all the tournament fights were quite even and fun.
Zuev vs. Yodwicha Jan 12 on EM-Legend, streamed by Kunlun again.
Today were awarded the only meaningful fight awards in China. Held for the 3rd time.
Awards for the promotions were kind of made up to please everyone kind of shit so I won't even bother posting them here.
The other awards were okay though I suppose, and maybe can give a glimpse into how the local liverkick.com and their readers might see things in China.

Some other stuff from the event:
Yodwichas kb fight last week. Sometime im reminded why he's still competing kickboxing under the radar. He still has a bit of work to do.
Zuev is a pretty solid opponent that can give anyone a good fight but I don't think he has anything special to beat Yodwicha.
He doesn't seem to take his opponent seriously, just trying to knock him out. Of course it will look bad when he doesn't get the knock out. If he fights better (non thai) guys like Allazov, Grigorian, Petrosyan i think it'll look different, whether he wins or not. The reason he "still has a bit of work to do" is probably because he is mostly facing bums and got used to this walking forward with punches style. He tried it against Mazzeti who is a solid fighter and almost paid for it, in muay thai rules.
Think young Yod is fighting someone else now
EM-Legend year ender show live now:
I missed EM, hopefully the Yodwicha fight gets posted.
he'll always have work to do if we're expecting him to reach the levels he achieved in muay thai but he could jump into Glory's LW division and automatically be a top 5 guy
the thing is he probably needs to get KTFO by Marat in order to change that reckless walk-forward style but other than that, outside of a robbery via bullshit point deduction, he looks ready to beat the second tier Glory LW guys.
the WLF 67kg tournament is this saturday
from what i understood, will be semi finals and final in the same night
Petchtanong vs Zhuo
Jomthong vs Toy
is it right?
