Not seen here since 2015, the New Zealand cruiserweights are back for the eight man, last man standing, battle for the crown.

Eight of New Zealand’s top stand up fighters in the 86kg weight division, square off, bringing together their own techniques born from kickboxing, boxing, muay Thai, MMA, and other martial arts, fought under international K-1 rules.

On November 17th, a survival series of explosive, three-round elimination bouts, will decide who takes home the coveted King in the Ring 86kg title.

Who will join the ranks with TY Williams and Israel ‘The Stylebender’ Adesanya, as the next cruiserweight King?

Eight Fighters. Only ONE will be King.
