This looks like a pretty nice card for kickboxing fans.




K-1 AMSTERDAM

K-1 Amsterdam/Showtime Promoter Simon Rutz has released a nearly complete card for K-1 Amsterdam, which is to take place on June 23. The event will feature both MMA and K-1 kickboxing bouts, as well as an 8-man K-1 Grand Prix tournament. The only uncertainty at this time is the name of the eighth and final contestant for the K-1 Amsterdam Grand Prix.

It looks like Overeem and Yvel are both being set up to squash their opponents; Knapp and Gouram both are unlisted on Fight Finder. No word on what weight Overeem will be competing at.

This isn't the show they were trying to book "The Worm" Dennis Rodman for is it?

Yeah. That is just a PR ploy from the looks of it though.

Isn't Mighty Mo on the 6/2 Dynamite card?

Isn't Mighty Mo on the 6/2 Dynamite card?

Yep, so is Manhoef. K-1 doesn't believe in long layoffs evidently.

I haven't watched K-1 in a long time but that card seems stacked.
