Underground Fighters of Cuba: Fightland.com

Subscribe to FIGHTLAND on YouTube: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Fightland Fightland went to Havana to check out the only mixed martial arts gym in Cuba. The Cuban government hasn't legalized MMA for fear of losing its best boxers, so the fighters on coach Evelio Padron Ferrier's team wrestle on concrete floors, use the ocean for endurance training, and practice techniques pulled from memory and bootlegged DVDs.

Fightland Ep.2:山本"KID"徳郁 お墨付き!堀口恭司 - Japan's Karate Kid: Kyoji Horiguchi
VICEの格闘技シリーズ「FIGHTLAND」エピソード2では、誰 が待ち望むMMA界の超新星 堀口恭司(ほりぐち・きょうじ)を紹介!「日本の選手 でスターがいない。自分がスターになって、格闘技を盛 り上げていく」と勇ましく語る23歳だ。 2010年のデビュー以来、「12勝1敗」という勝率を誇る堀 口。12勝中、実に8勝がKO勝ちという驚異的な強さを持 が、それには長年鍛練を積んできた空手の経験が活か れている。父の影響で5歳から始めた空手。高校時代 はインターハイにも出場。青春時代を空手と共に歩ん きた〝カラテ・キッド〟は、なぜMMAの道を選んだのか —。 ↓エピソード1はコチラから↓ ファイトランド Episode 1:澤田龍人 http://youtu.be/jBayTVkKD8o Kyoji Horiguchi is one of Japan's brightest prospects in MMA, currently based in Tokyo and training alongside legendary Kid Yamamoto at his gym, Krazy Bee. While lacking the professional guidance usually provided by coaches for UFC fighters in the US, he makes up for it by having Kid Yamamoto as his training partner. Horiguchi boasts a Karate background which he takes advantage of when moving about in the cage, making it difficult for his opponents to guess his next move. On top of that, he hits like Mack truck, which explains his record of 12 wins and 1 loss with 8 KOs - unusual for a flyweight fighter. VICE catches up with Horiguchi to find out what his day-to-day consists of, including his down time fishing down by the river 70 miles north of Tokyo. In person, it seems as if nothing could ever overwhelm him, whether it be the rigorous training he endures at the gym or the pressure to become the next UFC champion. It's obvious he has his eye fixed on the prize, and the wild parties thrown at the gym don't seem to distract him in the least. ↓Watch Fightland Japan Ep 1↓ Fightland Ep.1: A New Era : http://youtu.be/jBayTVkKD8o VICEチャンネル登録: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=VICEjpch VICEビデオ・リスト: http://www.youtube.com/user/VICEjpch/videos 公式ウェブサイト: http://vice.com/jp Facebook: http://fb.com/vice Twitter: https://twitter.com/VICEJapan Google+: https://plus.google.com/100639827441905861550/ Instagram: http://instagram.com/vicejapan

The Giants of Iceland
Subscribe to FIGHTLAND: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Fightland Despite its tiny population, Iceland has a reputation in the World's Strongest Man competition that stands higher than perhaps any other country's. This small, black rock in the middle of the ocean has produced a lineage of strongmen dating back to the Vikings. VICE went out there to investigate why this tiny island produces such strong people. Hanging out at Jakabol—a gym run by ex-champion Magnus Ver Magnusson—we met a whole host of Icelandic strongmen, which includes Hafthor "Thor" Bjornsson, the 6'9" star of Game of Thrones.

Underground Bare Knuckle Boxing in the UK
Subscribe to FIGHTLAND: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Fightland Once regarded as something that happens exclusively in Guy Ritchie films and on gypsy sites, bare knuckle boxing is fast becoming a thriving scene in the UK -- the ultimate British bloodsport. When Clive Martin embeds with the bare knuckle boxing elite, what he discovers is not dissimilar to Fight Club; IT technicians, builders, lifestyle coaches and even a solicitor, all throwing their unprotected fists into each other's faces. It's a subculture of honour, pride and violence. As the UK prepares to play host to the first US vs UK bare knuckle title fight in 150 years -- the biggest event the scene has known since it went underground in the 19th Century -- Clive tries to find out if violence is a cause or effect for these angry young men.
