12/6 K-1 World GP Final - Reserve Fights Announced

Tuesday 11 November 2008

K-1 have added reserve fights to their World GP Final. The event is being held in Yokohama Arena Saturday December 6, and should be a very good event.

The fights added today also answers a question regarding Manhoef's retirement, because he is fighting! Does that mean he is retiring only from MMA? We will see, might have been the disappointment of losing in the Semi-final. Either way, it is good to see him back in Japan.

For those that remember, the round in Korea provided some upsets. Semmy Schilt lost to Peter Aerts and was knocked out of this year's tournement. Also Musashi suffered a loss that means there are no Japanese fighters in the finals.

On side note, it looks like Schilt is scheduled for a fight on NYE (Dynamite!).

Of Course, this event will include the semi-finals and final as well.
