K-1 World GP FINAL 16, September 27, Seoul Korea *OFFICIAL THREAD* (Image taken from K-1 website, http://www.k-1.co.jp/k-1gp/top869.htm) Going to be the best K1 event of the year to date, all the top fighters will be competing. Post your picks and opinions about the fights/matchups. My picks (I've never been a fan of picking specific outcomes for fights, I think it is always probabilistic, but I'll give it a shot since I made the thread): Schilt vs Aerts: I pray that Aerts can overcome Schilt but my head tells me it will not happen. I expect Schilt to take victory via point decision, but inside I pray that Aerts pulls off an upset to keep Snoozefest Schilt from reach-festing his way to a victory in the finals. Badr Hari vs Hong Man Choi This is the most interesting fight on the card. Badr Hari has seemed invincible recently, and I would favour his chances versus any other fighters on the card except for Schilt or Choi. Choi, while lacking in speed and skill, is retardedly huge, and has bones like rock. I expect that Hari will take this fight via decision from repeated leg kicks, but I hope that Hari wins via right hand on Choi's button. Jerome Lebanner vs Junichi Sawayashiki Jerome Lebanner via brutal KO in the first or second. Teixera vs Musashi I don't know enough about Teixera to call this fight, but he won the GP in Japan earlier this year, so he's no slouch. Musashi has been looking spectacular in the past year, I expect this will be a close and exciting fight. Musashi is really the only Japanese fighter with a skerrick of a chance of getting deep in this tourney. I pick Musashi via TKO. Karaev vs Chalid Karaev is a really inconsistent fighter, with great power and technique but a questionable jaw. Chalid should really test him. Nonetheless, I see this going to Karaev via decision. Bonjasky vs Slowinski Bonjasky should dispatch Slowinsky pretty handily, despite being Australian I've never been a big fan of Slowinski. Slowinski has a chance if he can hit Bonjasky with enough of his brutal leg kicks, but IMO Bonjasky has to much technique for Slowinski. Feitosa vs Zimmerman Feitosa via Brazilian kick! Sefo vs Saki Sefo has dropped his last 5 fights, and Saki has won his last 14 fights. Admittedly, Sefo has fought all the top competition and Saki has yet to fight any of the top guys. Unfortunately it seems that Sefo clearly over the hill, and I see this going to Saki by way of TKO. And to top it off, here's a funny picture I ripped from a Korean site with some bobble heads.
