With mlsman putting in so much effort to get the K-1 board some action ( Thanks mls!! ) I thought I would assist and put up a thread as well.
As many of you know, the K-1 board has been dead for some time and a few of us are really pumped to get some exchanges going in here.
If you are a fan of MMA and you find yourself drawn to the fighters that are predominantly strikers then K-1 is the place for you. K-1 showcases the worlds greatest strikers in a yearly GP. Even if you are an MMA fan that isn't really a fan of the striking, K-1 may just change your point of view.....These guys are the definition of WORLD CLASS strikers so make sure you take the time to check out the fighters being showcased around the K-1 forum.
For those of you that are fans of K-1 already I thought that I would ask for your opinions on who you think is the greatest fighter that has NEVER won the WGP.
My nomination goes to my boy Jerome LeBanner. This juggernaut has fought and beaten everybody who is anybody in the world of K-1 at some point in his career, as a matter of fact he has beaten many of them more than once. Its a shame that Geronimo was never able to capitalize and take a WGP. LeBanner was a respected and feared competitor that brought the very real possibility of a brutal KO every time he stepped into the ring. The fact that he came back and competed after what should have been a career ending injury at the hands ( or should I say feet ) of Ernesto Hoost is testament to his toughness and love of the sport. With that said I think Jerome was more than talented enough to have a WGP title and it surprises me that he never did and others that were less worthy do.
Check out this LeBanner KO HL showcasing one of the most prolific KO artists in the history of K-1.
Please post your opinions gentleman and keep the K-1 love coming!!!
