The event is the 2nd K-1 -63kg tournament. Last year's inaugural event was won by Tetsuya Yamato, and ended up being one of the best kickboxing shows of 2010. This year once again focuses on Japanese fighters, and while it lacks the big international names of the typical K-1 Grand Prix events, it is still a line-up that should deliver a great night of action. The complete card is as follows:
Quarter-Final #1: Tetsuya Yamato vs. HIROYA
Quarter-Final #2: Koya Urabe vs. Yuki
Quarter Final #3: Yuta Kubo vs. Kizaemon Saiga
Quarter-Final #4: Ryuji Kajiwara vs. Masaaki Noiri
Semi-Final #1: Yamato/Hiroya Winner vs. Urabe/Yuki Winner
Semi-Final #2: Kubo/Saiga Winner vs. Kajiwara/Noiri Winner
Reserve Fight: Yuto Watanabe vs. Toshiki Taniyama
Reserve Fight: Shohei Asahara vs. Koji Yoshimoto
Super Fight: Yoshihiro Sato vs. Albert Kraus
KOjiman vs. Hideto Fujii
Takayoshi Kitayama vs. Gentaro
Akihiro Kimura vs. Yuji Tanaka
Shingo Yokoyama vs. Yasuomi Soda

I can't wait to watch this. I've been in love with K-1 ever since I watched Sefo vs Hunt. I was 13 at the time, and when I woke up the next morning I was shocked to discover I had gone through puberty. My dad was so proud that he wept with joy, and I promptly punched him in the face for being a sissy.
Kizaemon Saiga to win for no logical reason whatsoever.
As for the super fight, I'm going with Sato over Kraus via KO. IIRC Kraus has beaten him in the past, but it's been awhile since the two have fought.
All fights (except for the final, its about to start) went to decision except for the first one, which was kinda weird. Still exciting, though.
EDIT: even the final went to a decision. That leg went through a lot.

Fights are avaliable on fightnext.com for those that missed the event
Urabe impressed me this tournament.He was able to stifle a dangerous Yamato by keeping him off balance with his combination punching.He showed a ton of heart in his fight with Kubo and was still landing punches despite the damage to his leg.I would love to see a rematch between Kubo and Urabe.
