Two things:
1-WTF? All k1 fighters KOed by MMA fighters? Even in k1 rules?
2-Bob Sapp vs Cartoon guy is the fight of the year! The Cartoon guy has potential to beat Fedor and Lesnar.

Was impressed with Overeem and Mousasi. Big performances by both.

Oh and Manhoef looked rusty comin back from retirement…cough

OMC

The real WTF is Hunt getting KO’d.

Takeda and Musashi losing was not surprising, those guys are way past their prime.

Overeem looked great. He comes out of Golden Glory so his striking is extremely good, and keeps getting better. Golden Glory has Schilt and is one of the top Dutch gyms, so their guys can strike at a high level.

Mousasi also trains out of Holland so his striking should be very good.

Aoki buttscoot

yeah i think it’d be really cool to checkout the dutch gyms. Golden Glory and I think VOS is really good? I might be confused here though.

Aoki buttscoot

That was funny!!

Melvin looked great. Cro Cop still has a very odd way of defending punches even if his opponent had a 20 ft reach advantage. Overeem looked very very good. I loved his head movement and left hook counters off it. Very nice combinations too. Good show!
