so how about that K-1 GP line up
just saw the final eliminations the other day. I really feel sorry for ignashov, he looked in bad shape. obviously carrying some extra weight, **** he hadnt even shaved. poor bastard had a goodm shot this year as well imo, he has been doing real well lately. I dont know what that little thai dude is doing. hes good obviously, no one wins in thailand without being good, but there is no fucking way he will win. he fluked out on getting an almost dead ignashov, if he ends up against someone like Sefo or Bonjasky... they better have an ambulance waiting.
speaking of, Sefo is looking outstanding. he physically looks MUCH better than he ever has (you can almost see his abs :D) and he was on fire against that japanese guy. three rounds, very active, and he was still running on full by the end. he was just toying with his opponent and playing for the crowd. its nice to see someone who loves their sport like he does.
the other fights were good- I didnt see the second round of Aerts vs mcdonald but the two I saw were pretty even. I like mike but I dont think he will ever win K-1, he is simply too small and not aggressive enough. Aerts needs to retire imo before someone else retires him. hoost was fighting a predictably smart fight, no surprise that he won. I personally dont like watching hoost fight, sure he can rake up the points but hes so boring.
Musashi also looks much better (although I like his blue hair better) with his hands, despite how stunted his arms are. he certainly gave abidi a good thrashing. LeBanner fought a dumb fight and really deserved to lose(he thought so as well obviously) but at least he wasnt as dumb as goodridge. mighty moe has ONE weapon and he walked right into it. jesus.
as for the superfight between remy and akebono, well what can I say. between them akebono and sapp are destroying the myth that bigger always means better. he set that kick up for the whole fight and akebono, too busy cuddling himself, never saw it coming. maybe this is the push he needs to **** off out of K-1 for good, I am tired of watching him cheat and have the most boring fights ever. props to remy for fucking his **** up good and proper, and how gross was the slow mo replay from behind where you saw all his neck fat wobbling. apparently he lost 50 pounds for that fight- guess he skipped lunch.
