I'll take that bet. Let me think of something sweet for you too put when JLB takes Semmy out.
I put earlier in the thread that I thought a Schilt reign would not be good for K-1, allow me to elaborate now.
IMO opinion Schilt came into K-1 in the dying days of the WGP. He has never beat any of the greats when they were in thier so to me he doesn't impress. I know its not his fault that he came in later but unfortunetly he missed the glory days of the WGP. He doesn't carry the same amount of respect into the ring with him as the legends do.
I would like to see his reign ended by JLB for several reasons. Obviously the number 1 reason is because I swing from JLB's nuts like a monkey from a tree. lol
Seriously though I think that at this point the WGP needs some of its old luster back to raise its popularity and JLB brings that element. After such a long career and so many memorable fights he brings something that Schilt can't. The fact that so many fans would be satisfied to see JLB get the "Big win" that has eluded him all these years leads me to believe that it would add the buzz the WGP needs at this point. I call it the "Couture Effect", something about an old time great coming in and pulling off what seems impossible leads to a euphoria that can't be matched any other way. That is what K-1 needs IMO.
