-Top 8 from last year make it automatically.
-4 tournament winners qualify.
-2 picked by K-1 organization/fan vote.
In the GP, the other 2 are the title holders, but I'm not sure how that works for the MAX GP. I'm sure somebody else can help you out.
Ah ok cool, thanks for the info. For some reason HDNet aired the Japan tournament but not the Netherlands tournament
The Japan tournament was a lot of fun though so I am looking forward to future ones.
