Before I head off to take a nap, I figured that I would get the jump and create the official discussion thread.

Why is it official?

Because I fucking said so!

Talk to you guys in about 5-6 hours.

Mighty Mo just got chopped down hard

that was a good fight

LeBanner/Choi next

Damn, I like Mighty Mo too. Nooooooooo I don't want to miss Choi/JLB!

*edit* stream is up!

JLB just on his way in?

yes sir, just got in and being checked by ref.

12-08-2007, 10:49 AM
Choi is a beast.

I hope he gets KO'd.

The French need to win something.

Edit:

Good round for Lebanner. He was good at finding his range, getting in and then slipping back out.

Gmunit
12-08-2007, 10:52 AM
Good Rnd for Le Banner

I wouldn't have known what to think if I didn't get Akebono's commentary

jesusatemyhotdog
12-08-2007, 10:55 AM
Two rounds for Lebanner.

Choi is slow as fuck, as long as JLB doesn't take a big shot, fight should be his.

What a great round!

Lebanner looked very strong.

JLB owned Choi that round. That was fuckin sweet.

I smell a big knockout coming.

Schilt is going to get him soon.

Wow, Glaube just rocked Semmy!

valheruking
12-08-2007, 11:15 AM
Sefo and Hoost are pretty good on the commentating team.


Feitosa rocks him with the Brazilian kick, damn.

NinjaShogunRua
12-08-2007, 11:15 AM
holy shit, semmy was rocked!

valheruking

Nobody has ever knocked out Semmy Schilt?, eh, Alexey Ignashov.

jesusatemyhotdog
12-08-2007, 11:17 AM
Seems Schilt has completely recovered.

valheruking
12-08-2007, 11:22 AM
Feitosa's a really good fighter, just a pity Semmy is so big, at least he didnt get ko'd this time, rocked Schilt in fact.

Semmy vs JLB in the first semi final.

I can't wait for that fight, both fighters looked great in their first matches.

(altough he could get ko'd right away lol)

(altough he could get ko'd right away lol)


I hope Bonjansky pulls out a rolling thunder a la Graham.

I love that kick.

Hari's entrance is up next. The fight will start in an hour.

valheruking
12-08-2007, 11:31 AM
lol i really like both these guys and i'll be happy for either, Badr would really kick some life into K-1 though, and he insults people that were fighting when he was in highschool lol, war Badr.


Hari's entrance is up next. The fight will start in an hour.

haha so true

Theres Melvin as usual, putting him in crazy mode lol.

valheruking
12-08-2007, 11:48 AM
Man that was fucking stupid, no way Badr lost that, Either Badr won or it was a draw.

jesusatemyhotdog
12-08-2007, 11:49 AM
Man that was fucking stupid, no way Badr lost that, Either Badr won or it was at least a draw.


Fucking Bojansky must blow the judges or something.

Remember the Terkay fight?

Same bullshit.

Gmunit
12-08-2007, 11:50 AM
Man that was fucking stupid, no way Badr lost that, Either Badr won or it was a draw.


i have to agree, but i guess they didn't have Badr "stealing" the first (?)

valheruking
12-08-2007, 11:51 AM
I think Bonjasky would have won in the extra round, cause Badr was looking tired, but at least give the decision we all just seen.


Oh and Junichi is getting ktfo lol

NinjaShogunRua
12-08-2007, 11:52 AM
I'd have to agree, it was a draw at least. I don't see how Remy won it. He was on the defense most of the fight.

Gmunit
12-08-2007, 11:54 AM
I fucking love this production

valheruking
12-08-2007, 11:56 AM
War Aerts

valheruking
12-08-2007, 12:01 PM
Haha didnt take long, pity for the young guy, but Aerts is the man.

NinjaShogunRua
12-08-2007, 12:01 PM
haha that was quick. Aerts wasn't fucking around.

valheruking
12-08-2007, 12:11 PM
JLB vs Choi - i wanted JLB to win, he won.

Remy vs Badr - i wanted Badr to win, he won in my eyes, and Ray Sefo and Ernesto Hoosts lol

Feitosa vs Semmy- i wanted Feitosa to win, he lost.

Junichi vs Aerts, i knew Aerts would win lol

Pretty good night so far lol, altough Badr was robbed, but i guess it wouldnt be K-1 without the trademark bs decision.

NinjaShogunRua
12-08-2007, 12:30 PM
Great 1st round for JLB. That knee from Semmy at the end was vicious though.

valheruking
12-08-2007, 12:37 PM
Fuck, i think Aerts is our only hope to beat Schilt, thats assuming he beats Bonjasky.

NinjaShogunRua
12-08-2007, 12:39 PM
damn, I know. JLB showed a lot of heart, but you could see how much pain he was in. That knee just wouldn't hold.

Aerts needs to take it home for the old skool!

valheruking
12-08-2007, 12:45 PM
Aerts looked good in the first.

Gmunit
12-08-2007, 12:51 PM
and the 2nd

Gmunit
12-08-2007, 12:52 PM
Semmy has a cakewalk IMO

valheruking
12-08-2007, 12:55 PM
Yeah, Aerts will be tired now, anything can happen though.

Gmunit
12-08-2007, 12:57 PM
Yeah, Aerts will be tired now, anything can happen though.

for sure, but he will be really tired

i hope he can pull it though

Semmy Schilt again. WOW. Am I the only one who seems to think the top guys just keep getting older and older and there isn't any new blood coming up? Just a thought, but it looks like MMA is the major focus and the K-1 is seeing a decline in prospects.

mmafan111
12-08-2007, 06:09 PM
thanks to admin for moving this post, i don't have the required Rep to post in the main page cause i pissed off Noob a while back and all my rep got taken away from me

anyway, i've learnt my lesson and will patiently work my rep back up so i can post important information like this

K-1 is getting stale. Same guys fighting over and over again it seems. I still watch, but it would be nice for some new blood.

I agree. Like I said, I think MMA is sucking up all the would-be talent.

valheruking
12-08-2007, 08:24 PM
Yeah Sefo, Aerts, LeBanner etc are all getting older, they need the young guys like Badr coming through who is a good fighter and has an attitude etc that draws fans, he beat Bonjasky in the finals too imo, it also doesn't help that Semmy is 6"11 as it pisses off a lot of people who think hes a champ because of his size and not because of his technique.

Thats why the Max division has been the focus of most fans the last few years.

SimpleJack
12-08-2007, 08:25 PM
I think that's why people were so big on guys like Carter Williams and such.

Ramma
12-08-2007, 08:42 PM
Poor Remy..


I was really pulling for him.


The biggest problem is now that MMA is so big, a lot of guys would probably still to K-1 to make a living are going to start in MMA or going to switch early in their careers.
