Some love for Cruiserweights - The Carnage...

I saw Tyrone Spong mentioned in another thread and it reminded me about Nathan Corbett.

2007 K-1 Scandinavia champion - he is just not quite big enough to challenge the big K-1 boys (tho im sure he'd give them a go) and obviously too big for max. Check out his record...

and some highlights

He has crazy skills n power, but its hard to find good fights for him. The next logical fight i think is Tyrone, and would be a cracker

Corbett has got some vicious elbows and the fight with Spong is long overdue.

Corbett is a freakin stud. I wish that K-1 would use some of the other weight classes so that we could see more of the fighters that are to small for WGP and too big for MAX.

Spong and Corbett would be an awesome fight. Reckless abandon galore!

phew! im glad some ppl on here appreciate his talents.

Good point about K-1 weight classes. I mean how crazy was that lightweight (I think) Japanese dude that fought at the last Max tourny.

Even if they just added a mini lightweight and cruiserweight tourny to undercard max/heavyweight respectively. I reckon this would be ideal.

cheers for the clip MLS, it reminded me of how much I love full thai rules also. Props to Carnage too for his attitude, epitomizes the spirit of a fighter.

Bring on Spong!
