Who takes the Max Tournament?

Now this is who you think wins not who you want to win (unless they are the same person). Give your reason for who takes it and if you want say who you want to win.

Yeah I'm not a big fan of the rule change.

I'm thinking Masato takes it but Souwer wouldn't suprise me if he took it either.

Now the guy I want to take it is Artur. He is a long shot but I'm cheering for him. When he fought Masato he did pretty good and even rocked Masato twice but then he got caught.

Arthur Kyshenko 4% [ 11 ]
Yasuhiro Kido 2% [ 5 ]
Andy Souwer 21% [ 48 ]
Warren Stevelmans 1% [ 4 ]
Buakaw Por. Pramuk 39% [ 87 ]
Gago Drago 1% [ 3 ]
Masato 26% [ 59 ]
Yoshihiro Sato 2% [ 5 ]

kinda suprised how much of a favourite BPP is thought masato and him wd be around equal, the winner of BPP vs Masato very may well be badly banged up after that fight, which wd hurt their chances in the final against souwer

the results of k-1fans.com poll
also tbh i still havent seen much at all of Warren Stevelmans

BPP has the ability to beat Masato since Masato doesn't like to block low kick so I'm not that suprised to not see him close. The main reason I see Masato beating BPP is the rule change.

Well in turn, Bakauw doesn't know how to block punches, and who throws punches better than Masato?

PS: I haven't heard of this rule change, what is it?

Oh I agree BPP sucks at blocking punches. I was more or less just finding reason for the difference in people seeing BPP winning over Masato.

Quote:
When a fighter is holding a neck of his opponent with both hands, the fighter is limited to kick or knee kick his opponent to only one time. Therefore, continuous attack is judged as a foul. Attacking the opponent continuously while holding the neck with one hand is authorized. However, referee may call a break if judges the attack does not give any damage to the opponent.
Passive holding or clinching is prohibited. However, the referee can permit it only when it is accompanied by an authorized attack. A fighter can be penalized if he resorts to holding or clinching after an authorized attack or in order to avoid attacks.

Oh yeah and the no elbow thing too, so you pretty much can't knee either.

These are all commonly called the Masato Rules.
