Those athletes who are continuing to improve and not already past their prime are preparing for a transition to MMA. Case in point, GLORY Kickboxing Heavyweight Champion Rico Verhoeven.

Verhoeven, a 6’5″ 250 lb. Dutch kickboxer, made his MMA debut in October 2015 against Viktor Bogutzki in Romania. The “Prince of Kickboxing” won by ground and pound TKO in the first round after taking his opponent down.
