Any current MMA fighters skilled enough in kickboxing to legitimately compete on a high level in the new GLORY fights that will be taking place in the US over the next few yrs hopefully?

Mma fighters can't hang in k-1 type of striking competition. Not too talk shut or anything but I was there live when Seth petruzellu fought in the k-1 event in LA against a kickboxer and their techniques were worlds apart and he got tko'd in the 1st round. Phone Post 3.0

Some guys could make the transition for sure but its a different spot. Different range, different pace, defence, etc. Love to see more guys cross over, I think Glory have JZ signed to a contract.

Edson Barboza was supposed to sign with K-1 Max before he got into MMA. Politics prevented him from signing with K-1 so he started training the other aspects of MMA. He is a very accomplished kick boxer.

Many guys from years past have crossed over and had success. Some have been mentioned above. i.e Kid, kawajiri etc.

But everbody seems to have forgoten a current UFC fighter who HAS ALREADY beat a K1 heavyweight champ IN k1. GEGARD MOUSASI

im sorry but thats just retarded, mirko cropcop just won k-1 and what about overeem? he beat sponge. both guys thats so-so in mma. overeem got ko'd like 10 times in pride, then wins k-1 grand prix. so by your logic k-1 champs cant hang in mma, not the other way around broskis

Diaz if he got his leg kick defense on point
Bisping
Pearson
Tom Watson
Dan Hardy
Terry Etim(most brits actually coz we have a strong Muay Thai scene here)
Barboza
Aldo (trains with Andy Souwer, former K1 MAX champ, in holland sometimes)

1st and 2nd round actually.. Cecil People's was the referee and gave Seth a 20 count after the 2nd knockdown at the end of the 1st round.. That was Xavier's pro debut..
