Just because there wasn’t a UFC event this week, doesn’t mean there wasn’t any combat sports action worth watching. The MMA world never stops turning for the really hardcore fight fan. Throw in some kickboxing and some Muay Thai and there’s plenty action out there for those in need of a fix.
Jungle Fight, Absolute Championship Berkut, and Fight Nights Global – along with some smaller shows – all put on events this last week, providing plenty of high quality knockouts. Glory Kickboxing held their own event as well, along with Lion Fights Muay Thai. So, sit back and enjoy the finishes
