  • Podcast: UFC Fight Night "Hunt vs. Nelson" Roundtable By: Sherdog.com Staff

    The Octagon touches down in the vaunted Saitama Super Arena on Saturday, and Mark Hunt looks to rekindle his memorable run of classic battles on Japanese soil against fellow slugger Roy Nelson. The Sherdog Radio Network "Roundtable" convened to break it all down and came to different conclusions as to which heavy will get his hand raised after 25 minutes.

    Host Jack Encarnacao welcomed Sherdog.com's Jordan Breen, SiriusXM's RJ Clifford, and Sherdog.com. Asia correspondent James Goyder for a detailed breakdown of the entire Fight Pass card, including a series of dissenting picks.

    Learn who the panel handicaps to make a successful UFC return after two-plus years on the shelf between Yoshihiro Akiyama and Amir Sadollah, which young Japanese prospect they're highest on and the chances of native favorites Takanori Gomi and Rin Nakai against very serviceable opposition in Myles Jury and Miesha Tate.

    The global authority in mixed martial arts once again gets you prepped for a super fight night in Saitama. So download the latest Roundtable here.

  • Glory World Series to Release Kickboxing Archive on YouTube By: C.J. Tuttle



    Instead of continuing to sell its past fights for a fee, Glory World Series has decided to begin unlocking its entire fight archive on YouTube for free.

    The kickboxing promotion announced the move on Monday through its website. Glory has not held an event since June, staging both Glory 17 and its foray into pay-per-view “Last Man Standing.”

    "Glory owns one of the largest fight libraries in the world, featuring more than 2,000 videos of classic and current hard-hitting encounters between the world's top combatants,” the promotion stated on its website. “World-class fights, high-definition quality =- and now we're letting fans access it for free."

    The archive will include fights from the glory days of kickboxing, with events from United Glory, Ultimate Glory and It's Showtime. On Monday, the promotion got the rollout started with Glory 1: Stockholm.

    You can view the first event above.
