Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

‘DREAM 18′ Full Fight Videos: Manhoef vs. Kang, Aoki vs. McKee, Baroni vs. Sakurai + More

(Melvin Manhoef def. Denis Kang via knee-to-the-body KO, 0:50 of round 1. Fight starts at the 3:44 mark, but we’ve got the video cued up to the *real* action.)

From Mirko Cro Cop arm-barring a professional wrestler, to Bob Sapp scoring a massive upset over Alistair Overeem (in arm-wrestling), New Year’s weekend in Japan was loaded with, shall we say, “sports entertainment.” But there was at least one legit event — the hybrid DREAM 18/Glory 4 MMA-kickboxing spectacular that went down December 31st at the Saitama Super Arena. Thanks to Suhwaniya Fight Club, we’ve got complete videos of all eight MMA fights that took place that night, which featured such stars as Shinya Aoki, Melvin Manhoef, Marloes Coenen, Phil Baroni, Michihiro Omigawa, and Bibiano Fernandes. Enjoy, and welcome to 2013 everybody.

Try to imagine how much booing there would be in the first 40 seconds of the Kang vs Manhoef fight if it was in the UFC (or anywhere outside Japan for that matter)

Damn shame about The Wereguido. Then again I don't know. He would be such an insufferable prick if he won fights like in the past.

The knee that dropped Kang was excellent. Didn't know Manhoef knew how to use a knee. Poor Kang, no luck once so ever.

Will Brooks looks like a future prospect who's moved up a notch.

Best fight was Marloes Coenen.

I love body shot TKOs. There seem to have been a lot more of them recently. Bring on the knees and kicks to solar plexii (?) and livers.
