    As long as nobody knocks Cro Cop out he'll probably win the weakest K1 WGP

    Also, I've heard that Pavel Zhuravlev may replace Makoto Uehara. That makes him favorite for the win in my opinion

    March 15th? Ben Edwards fights in Australia on March 23rd but he qualified for the WGP finals.

    Mmm looks like Kim had a big debt with Crocop management. Positive thing is it will be a sell out in Zagreb. But Kim selling another K1-sticker.

    so basically its SuperKombat and Orkut licensing the K1 name because they can or because they are owed money or whatever. Super.

    a win is a win.

    To become champion, he'll have to win 3 fights in one night against some pretty good guys.

    If they REALLY go ahead and award that prize money than something is really weird. If they have this kind of money than they should have definitely got some top fighters in their promotion. Like for example Spong who, as we know, "if there's good green involved he will fight".

    I strongly hope this will not be just another scam to trash the K-1 name even more.
