Hopefully but so far it has always fallen apart when they have tried to make it.

It would be nice, but it has been speculated that if Buakaw takes this K-1 Max once again that his trainer will force him out in favor of another Thai being brought over so someone else can shine. If that is the case, then we will never see it in K-1. Either way- Buakaw via low-kicks off the breaks...
