    watched the whole K-1 Tournament

    Superfights delivered but The tournament had a lot of wrong judging and inexistent knockdowns, apart from this it had good fights

    My pick for the tournament winner was the winner of the quarter final fight Haruma Saikyo(favorite to win) vs Asahisa Hirotaka(2nd favorite)

    not sure why people were so upset at YT on their fight,it was a competitive fight but for me Saikyo won fair

    Too bad the tournament final ended up in a early injury

    Judging in K-1 has been inconsistent since 1993. One day it is the number of strikes, another day it is aggression,
    another day it is the number of significant strikes, another day it is damages, etc. The sad thing is that you can actually tell which judges are inconsistent, but just like boxing there is no punishment for the judges so you have CJ Ross and Adalaide Byrd in every event.

    I must've been sleepy when first watching this. Tenshin did his best work in round 2; his round.

    That's because we drop that uncut raw, not that promotion pandering like you'll find from those elitists on Twitter...

    Fun fact
    Tenshin is now dating his training partner Asakura Kanna, who is fighting Rena next in a highly-anticipated rematch.

    Tenshin, Taiga, Horiguchi, Rodtung, etc.? That is actually not a bad 8-man tournament.

    I hope they get Rodtung, would be so good, even though it would virtually guarantee a Tenshin-Rodtung II rematch in the final lol

    Didn't Rodtung sign an exclusive contract with ONE's new Kickboxing promotion? Or is non-exclusive? I know that Andy Souwer recently had to pull out of his Rizin fight because he signed a similar sort of deal. Be awesome if the rematch was in a Rizin tournament though.

    We will see in time. ONE CEO is quite flippant. Also, Rodthung is fighting again in Thai stadium, if he loses Rizin/Rise could just brush him aside.
