hong basically dominated shilt which was a suprise but choi showed he has some skills and shilt is fucked with the new rules.
sefo KOed the shit out of Karaev again with a right hook
other then that the show was nothing to be excited about the gp was nothing. if fujimoto wins the fighters cant be very good. the only bad thing was kaoklai losing in the first round. he really need to turn it around if hes gonna stay in with the big boys of k1. this was set up for either kaoklai or fuji and koaklai lost so it was all fujis. they would love to have koaklai in the total elimination so will see but both shilt and choi will be in it and will see if they set them up with a rematch. shilt really has no hope with the new rules but will see.
i havent followed K1 much, wats this new rules that screwed Schilt?
basically if you know mma rules no muay thai clintch. i forget the exacts but you can not hold behind the head and knee more then once per fight or you are deducted a point or something along those lines. it used to be you could at least get one knee per clintch but now you cant even do that. they say its to keep the fights moving but it has really hurt schilt. the made the rule right after he won the gp.
that sucks, its part of the muay thai striking. i get maybe if theyre being inactive, but how you put it it almost sounds like this is their way of preventing Schilt from winning again
the new rules hurt a lot of fighters and i havent heard many people happy about it. the exact rules are; the fighters can clinch but once one knee is thrown the fighters are seperated. so basically it hurts all the tall fighers and the fighters skilled on their feet. schilt is hurt the most because he relies on the knee strike more then anyone but i really dont know why k-1 made this rule except maybe the japanese fighter wanted it.
yeah it sounds like an odd rule. i mean its not really much stalling done from there usually, and itd be a lot easier just seperating them if stalling. theres no need for eliminating the whole technique
you pretty much got it. they could just as easily seperate for stalling then make this rule and it takes away a vital part of the last 2 k1 champ. schilt and remy. so really the thing that is most bafflng is that none of the real k1 fans or purist understand the rule. its pretty much bullshit according to most people.
Yeah some people jokingly refer to the new rules as the anti-Schilt rule as it seems the rule was put in place almost specifically to sort of "level the playing fields" as Schilt was very effective with that technique prior to them changing the rules on it.
Didnt it used to be once per round and now its changed to once per fight?
