A fairly lackluster year if you ask me… I feel bad, I feel conflicted. We get so little Muay Thai/Kickboxing I feel compelled to support it. Like most of you guys I don’t like the direction K-1 is going. I came across this article about a week ago. It asks why K-1 isn’t the biggest sport going? I think it’s safe to say, that anyone who watched these fights (experienced or noob) found them wholly unremarkable.
That being said, I think Badr vs Remy was pretty good. I’d love to see more fighters like them in K-1…
I don’t remember a final tournament that was as uneventful as this one. It doesn’t help that I’m not a fan of its champion either. I just don’t like him as a fighter; I find his fighting awkward and unrefined. It’s not a dig on Kyokushin at all; it’s more to do with his gargantuan size.
Did you see how happy he was that Aerts was injured? I would have thought a champion would have disappointed that he didn’t get to chance to battle it out.
I read in a post fight interview that Schilt is expressing interest in fighting Fedor. Give me an effing break…
I took a look at our official poll from way back when. From what I can tell Semmy was favored to win with 30% of the vote. From my records the only people who correctly predicted the outcome were:
I’m including 2 more matches I forgot to upload.
Mighty Mo vs. Paul Slowinsky
Musashi vs. David Decrade
