Keep seeing really good KO sequences popping up in my various news feeds.
Had a nosey on their website and it's not overly clear what the athletes are fighting for (from season to season) and if there are current champions of different weight classes 🤷♂️
Karate Combat is a brand which promotes the first professional, full-contact karate league, hosting worldwide events since April 2018. The private company is headquartered in New York and was founded by Michael DePietro and Robert Bryan. The business also encompasses sports equipment, a worldwide Dojo network and mobile apps for viewers. Karate Combat was founded in order to promote karate as a sport and martial art. Former UFC heavyweight champion Bas Rutten hosts Karate Combat venues alongside special guests.
Also, all their events seem to stream for free on YouTube

Just in case you're wondering, I did saw the fight from Universal Studios Florida (via invitation, but still didn't obtained US visa at that time). And man, I'm enjoying that brawl. That could reminded me of that "Karate Kid/Cobra Kai".
You know, I am actually going to watch some of this later day, if you get there sooner please recommend some Karate Combat events that are worth watching, not sure I want to go through a whole back catalogue of seasons just yet.
First impressions after watching a couple of fights, conditioning is way different than MMA fighters, seen a few athletes crumble now when a hard kick lands on an elbow.
