Last Saturday, the largest competitive series in kickboxing history hit the LA Sports Arena. K-1 is a special type of fight. If you’re familiar with Muay Thai, then you’re on the right track, but K-1 does not allow clinching. These fights are… fights. No wrestling, no clinching, no takedowns and no BJJ strategy. These are non-stop action, and to help out, the ring is very small.
World Grand Prix Champions of K-1 include Alistair Overeem, Mark Hunt, and a ton of other big names. Saturday gave us 30 fighters on 15 cards, including 4 heavyweight, 4 Max fights, 4 Super fights, and 3 undercard bouts. What I love about the K-1 series is that for many of the winners, Saturday was just the beginning. Click “Read More” for more photos…

Exciting news, Laker Nation! This just in: the Lakers have been retroactively awarded the 2007 NBA title, reversing the beatdown they suffered in the NBA Finals and passing That Which Is Most Evil as the most decorated team in hoop history with their 17th NBA championship (the Celtics now being reduced to 16 rings). That’s why they hopped in their H.G. Wells Time Machine and scooped up the finest point guard Canada has ever produced, right?
You don’t actually believe the Forum Blue & Gold are now on track to take the cheese in 2013, do you?
I had the chance to shoot photos of some amateur Muay Thai competitions last Saturday. A few guys that train at the same Dojo as I do were fighting, and I thought it would be fun to try and shoot some fast moving sports – but I normally shoot concerts. Fighters move much faster than rock stars. I did get a few shots…
Yeah L.A. Kings! And congratulations to all of our K-CAL Rockers who have been faithful fans for all these years. Awesome! Got more on where the cup went when you read more.
So for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals at Staples Center, the Kings fans sitting behind the New Jersey Devils’ box brought cutouts of the cast of Jersey Shore (see earlier post) to mess with the visiting team. How do you top that for Game 4 last night? Bring in some porn star boobs of course!…
