Embrace lyrical violence

The Guardian had an article yesterday about the sport of K-1 and its reigning champion, Bob Sapp. K-1 is a 3-round melange of martial arts and boxing which the author describes as a "spectacular synergy of several disciplines". Is that another way of saying that competitors have multiple means by which they can mash each other into pulp? Sounds like more of the same to me, but the author predicts it's going to take over the world.
