12/6 K-1 World GP - Finals

Monday 1 December 2008


The upcoming weekend will be big in Japan, and it should be a fun one! Saturday there are 2 events (if you count this one), K-1 and Cage Force. Sunday we will have Pancrase.

I will sit out Saturday (probably catch K-1 on TV), then get to the Pancrase event.

But the K-1 World GP Finals are always big and this year you can watch it on HDNet (if you're in the states).

This year the big favorite Semmy Schilt was knocked out in the previous round, a very good performance by Peter Aerts saw him taking the decision. Aerts will take on Badr Hari, in my eyes the winner could very well come for this fight. It could also result in injury to both fighters, so as always, keep an eye on the reserve fights.

As for Semmy Schilt, I would expect to see him on NYE in the Dynamite event. Maybe even fighting MMA rules.

The fights on Saturday:
Main-Event - Final: Winner Semi-Final 1 vs. Winner Semi-Final 2
Semi-Final 2: Winner Quarter-Final 3 vs. Winner Quarter-Final 4
Semi-Final 1: Winner Quarter-Final 1 vs. Winner Quarter-Final 2

Reserve Fight (2): Paul Slowinski vs. Melvin Manhoef
Reserve Fight (1): Hong Man Choi vs. Ray Sefo
