Aerts Challenges Hari to MMA Bout

Aerts challenges Hari to MMA bout

Three-time K-1 World Grand Prix champion Peter Aerts (Pictures) has challenged the current K-1 heavyweight titleholder Badr Hari to an MMA fight on New Year's Eve.

In an interview with the Japanese media, the 37-year-old Dutchman, who is widely considered the best kickboxer of the 1990s, boasted that he'd beat Hari.

"He has zero experience in MMA," Aerts said, "whereas I've been practicing Brazilian jiu-jitsu for quite a while and know a couple of submissions."

Knowing the brash nature of the just 23-year-old "bad boy" of K-1, Hari could accept the challenge. Promoter Fighting Entertainment Group is looking for another three or four bouts for its Dynamite!! Show, and a battle between the old guard against the new would certainly fit the bill.

Hari's acceptance aside, there is another uncertainty that could thwart a possibly very entertaining encounter: Aerts badly sprained ligaments in his knee in the K-1 World Grand Prix final against Semmy Schilt (Pictures). It is uncertain how long he needs to fully recover from the injury.

But even if the fight doesn't make this year's card, there's always the chance it will be included in a HERO'S show next year.

Aerts knowing a "couple submissions" is better than most fighters now, lol. Weird he would challenge Hari to a mma bout, since both guys are kick boxers, but eh this is k1 baby!

Wow, as Damone would say, "my junk is hard". Love the freakshowy goodness coming straight out of the land of the rising sun.

Dynamite already looks solid, and this would just add to it. I'd love to see Aerts pulling off a submission or something crazy.

I am digging this, since it's just off the wall random. If Aerts pulls off a gogoplata, then I will officially crap my pants with joy.

I'm going to go with Aerts on this one. Neither guy really has a ground game and Peter Aerts is a hero of mine and, in my opinion, the best kickboxer in the history of K-1.

All hail the Lumberjack.
