AMSTERDAM SET FOR K-1 GRAND PRIX

Several participants have been confirmed for the Amsterdam K-1 Grand Prix on Friday, April 24 at the Amsterdam Arena in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Regarded by many as the biggest yearly combat sports event in Europe, the grand prix features both MMA and K-1 bouts.

Jerome Le Banner will challenge reigning K-1 champion Semmy Schilt in the main event. Touted as the best fighter never to win a grand prix, Le Banner has become known as a ferocious single-bout competitor, and many believe he stands a good chance of upsetting Schilt.

In other action, Poland’s Pawel Slowinski will square off with Holland’s Gokhan Sakhi, and kickboxing legend Peter Aerts will collide with Melvin Manhoef. Both matches will be contested under K-1 rules. Other confirmed participants include Buakaw Por Pramuk, Andy Souwer, Albert Kraus and Gago “Drago” Aroetjunian.

No MMA fights have been announced yet, but rumours have surfaced regarding Pride veteran and current Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem’s participation.

Wow, sweet. But wasn't Hunt supposed to take on Schilt?

And I don't think JLB is the dude he used to be, he's kinda garbage now, plus Schilts already beat him before.

But the rest of the card looks solid, Aerts vs Manhoef?!?! SICK, I heard it was supposed to be MMA, but now that it's K-1, well that rocks even more, this should be freakin crazy.

^Hunt is still fighting Schilt. That fight takes place on the 13th this event is on the 26th. I know the article says it's on the 24th, but K-1's official fight has it scheduled for the 26th, so I'll go with them.

valheruking has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Bonjasky is fighting Manhoef, Aerts is injured.
