I know there has to be a few K-1 fans here, so hopefully this thread isn’t just otoko and me Anyways, this weekend is the K-1 World Grand Prix, and it looks like a great, albeit aging, card.
Semmy Schilt vs JLB
Ruslan Karaev vs Glaube Feitosa
Ernesto Hoost vs Chalid “Die Faust” Arrab
Remy Bojansky vs Stefan Leko
Melvin Manhoef vs Ray Sefo
Peter Aerts vs Musashi
I want JLB to take this whole freaking thing. I think he did the right thing by taking the prohibitive favorite first. He’s had such bad luck with injuries in the past, beating the reigning champion and having to drop out later would come across pretty well.
Winner of Schilt vs JLB is my favorite to take the whole thing. My longshot is Sefo to beat Manhoef and get an injury spot and wipe up. I also like Ruslan a lot, and hope he shows well.
And goddamn, I can’t believe Hoost is still fighting. I hope his knee doesn’t horrendously buckle from a low kick. Poor man needs to hang him up. His technical brillance always make him a threat though, but I don’t see him getting through Die Faust.
