K1 World GP 2007
Any thoughts? I'd be happiest if Lebanner can finally take it, and loose his "best to never have one the grand prix" title. Aerts or Bonjasky winning would still be cool though. I'll be pissed if the out of place Schilt wins this again.
Le Banner vs Choi
I think Lebanner will take this one by decision, much like their last bout. LeBanner might be one of the most devastating K1 punchers, but This will be a tough one however, and won't leave Lebanner very fresh for his next bout.
Schilt vs Feitosa
Schilt is a giant monster who should have a weight class of his own, and more than likely will crush Feitosa.
Schilt FTW I think, deadliest knees in the game I would say. But then again its not really much of a knee when your opponents only reach your belly button.
Not sure if there is a good site for tracking K-1 records, but I think this is a rematch. They first fought with Feitosa winning an alternate match over Gary Goodridge. Feitosa then lost against Schilt by massive knee to the jaw.

Man, Peter Aerts must be nearly 50 by now. I hope he does well but he's in a tough semi-final bracket.
Schilt is kyokushin isnt he?, wonder if he sticks to that completely or cross trains in another striking art.
According to wikipedia he's an Ashihara Karate fighter

Schilt is Ashihara karate (a kyokushin offshot) and student to Dave Jonkers -the head of the Ashihara international organization. Jonkers is also Schilts kickboxing coach and trainer at the Golden Glory Gym. Jonkers has been Schilts trainer ever since he first started doing martial arts, and all through the pancrase, pride years.

And now they faced in the quarter-final of the 2007 final event.
As for good site for tracking K-1 record. Try http://www.k-1sport.de/en/database/tournaments.php
It has excelent databases for both events and fighters. a few (very few) minor local events (k-1 hungary and so on) events are missing, but even most of those are there.
