    Default K-1 WGP 2008 Final 16 Bouts Announced

    K-1 World GP 2008 in SEOUL - FINAL 16
    September 27, 2008
    Olympic Gymnasium 1, Seoul, Korea



    Final 16
    -Semmy Schilt vs. Peter Aerts
    -Badr Hari vs. Hong Man Choi
    -Jerome Le Banner vs. Junichi Sawayashiki
    -Ewerton Teixeira vs. MUSASHI
    -Ruslan Karaev vs. Chalid "Die Faust" Arrab
    -Remy Bonjasky vs. Paul Slowinski
    -Glaube Feitosa vs. Errol Zimmerman
    -Gokhan Saki vs. Ray Sefo

    Opening Fights
    -Zabit Samedov vs. Fabiano Da Silva
    -Randy Kim vs. Yong Soo Park
    Source - K-1 OFFICIAL WEB SITE



    Well, it would appear that Aerts and Schilt are going to fight from the get go. There can be only one lol


    I can't deny that I like how the matches are set up (minus Choi who just got fed to the wolves on his come back). Aerts and Schilt get to do their thing, while Remy, Gokhan, LeBanner, and Hari are all going to head into the final 8 (more than likely).

    Hopefully, K-1 will also grant Saki his wish by letting him settle the score with Hari (though I doubt he will win).

    Could be a really good show. Much of the same, but at least we are not seeing Schilt vs. Aerts in the finals for sure. I honestly think they are going to make sure Badr gets to the finals.

    Yeah but remember Choi is fighting in Korea, and we've seen how that works before, Badr will have to give a strong performance.

    i'm hearing alot of rumors that Musashi has improved immensely. can't wait to see him fight that night.

    Gegard Mousasi- 25-2-1

    "However great the kindness and the efficiency, in every hospital death there will be some cruel, squalid detail, something perhaps too small to be told but leaving terribly painful memories behind, arising out of the haste, the crowding, the impersonality of a place where every day people are dying among strangers"

    True, but Badr is going to go to work on Choi for sure. I don't think it will end up happening, but who knows.

    Definitely. K-1 needs a new winner so bad. As much as I want to see someone set a new record (breaking Hoost's), I'd rather see a new winner. I want things mixed up a bit lol

    I really hadn't heard anything. Do you have any links? (I am not calling you out, I just want to see lol).




    So, if Schilt or Aerts gets to the finals, who do you see being on the otherside of the ring from them... and will that other person win? lol

    Please let Jerome win this one, not kept up with K-1 much recently, but I take it LeBanner is yet to win a WGP?

    I wouldn't mind if JLB won it at all. In fact, if LeBanner could beat Schilt in the process like he wanted to. I would be even happier.

    If JLB does get eliminated, that does open him to fight Sylvia if Affliction still wanted to do it. Which I would also love to see.



    Now, if HMC or Saki or some crazy underdog won it, that would almost be better than if Remy won it lol. I would love nothing more than to see the foundation of the K-1 Elite get shaken up.
