i think the punishment fits the crime. i wonder how long it will be before Hari gets the belt back(fighting for it if course). i also wonder how much money Hari lost because of it.

Well apparently He has no purse for the fight, it was all taken away so yea....I'm guessing that's quite a bit of money gone right their alone, and revoked title that's another chunk taken away, sponsors pulling out from him = some more money, and it can go on and on really, he's going to be hurt more because of the suspension and not being able to fight so, yea was it really worth it??? Idiotic move, Junie Browning probably isn't that stupid, and would have apologized.

a suspension should be onyl for K-1 nothing more. He has proved that hes comes back stronger after being knocked down and i hope thats the case with this. Wouldnt hurt for him to mature a little

hahaha i wish Overeem flying knees his ass.. but realistically, after watching this fight, i think Overeem should be allowed to guillotine choke Hari.

LOL at his interview..

Q : Do you remember what you did?

A : I kicked him in the face after the ref came between us

Q : In fact its prohibited.

A : yeah, but cycling on the pavement is prohibited too(use smile on his face)

Q : Do you have any regrets?

A: Of course, its an expensive joke, but we cant go in the past, its a lesson for next time

...

Q : But you will not do it the next time?

A : I dont know, but im going to stay calm in the future, thats for sure



Man that guy is an animal, both inside and outside.

I kind of understand more why Overeem and Hari is a matchup.. both likes to talk shit, so it could get interesting.. but after one hit, i predict Overeem will crumble again.. i hope not, but seeing how this guy hits..

Bring back knees strikes on grounded opponents.. Give me good arguments for not having them for crying out loud.

Ugh....I liked Hari before this, but after such crap and a response about it I cant respect the guy at all....I hope he looses until he realized his faults. What a prick!

Here's the thing about the punishment, Hari now has to win a tournament to get into the GP next year (or get a wildcard if he doesn't win a tournament). He would have automatically made the Final 16 by making it to the final like he did and/or him being the HW champion like he was.

Sounds like they are throwing the book at him which i am all for, but i also hope he remains with the organization. He's one of the most exciting members of the new K1 generation.

And the official statement from K-1

Quote:
During the Final Match of the “K-1 World GP 2008 Final” at the Yokohama Arena on Saturday, December 6, fighter Badr Hari twice punched opponent Remy Bonjasky, who was lying on the mat. After referee Nobuaki Kakuda intervened between the two fighters, Hari kicked Bonjasky. Hari was shown a red card (three point deduction) and thus disqualified because as a result of the foul.
The K-1 Rules Committee took this incident very seriously and held discussions with event promoter FEG. On Wednesday, December 17, 2008, K-1 Event Producer Sadaharu Tanikawa announced penalties that will be imposed on Badr Hari effective immediately.

Penalties
1. The confiscation of the full amount (100%) of Hari's fight money.
2. The confiscation of Hari's event prize money and the stripping of his title as K-1 World GP runner-up for the year 2008. (there will be no runner-up this year)
3. The stripping of Hari's K-1 Heavyweight Title and Belt.

Said Mr. Tanikawa: K-1 is now broadcast in about 150 countries worldwide. Such foul behavior should not be happened in the K-1 ring. In this regard, Badr Hari could be given an even more severe punishment, such as the suspension of his right to fight. However, after consulting with our attorney and judges, it was decided to penalize him in accordance with the K-1 Official Rules.
According to K-1 Official Rules, a fighter loses the full amount of his fight money when he receives a red card and is disqualified. In addition, the fighter is deprived of any event title and prize money when disqualified.
Regarding the deprivation of Hari's title as K-1 Heavyweight Champion: upon receiving the title belt, a fighter signs an agreement stating he will behave in a dignified manner befitting a champion. What Badr Hari did violated this agreement, and thus his title has been revoked.
Under the current K-1 Official Rules, there is no provision for the suspension of fighters. After consideration in light of this incident, we have decided to add to the rules new provisions for fighters' suspensions of three months to one year. These measures can be implemented when a fighter receives a red card/disqualification, in order to punish the fighter more strictly.
In the past, there have been fighters, such as Bob Sapp and Francois Botha, who have received penalties. However, Badr Hari has received the most severe penalties in K-1's history.
As Badr Hari has been deprived of the title of Heavyweight Champion, the championship is now vacant. FEG is planning to hold a title match, excluding Hari.
We hope Badr Hari will sincerely accept the punishment. I also hope he will perform voluntary social service, and show us that he regrets his behavior and has changed his attitude so that he can come back to K-1 soon.



Statement from Badr Hari

I apologize for using foul techniques at the K-1 World GP Final, and disappointing K-1 staff and all the fans of the world's most recognized fight event. I am upset at losing the title and the second-place prize money, as well as my fight money. It was only my hope to be the K-1 Champion.
I really regret what I did now and will fully accept the penalties FEG decided to give me. However, the only way that I can express my regret and apology is to fight and prove that I can show great fights under K-1 Rules. In addition, I would like to finish the fight against Remy Bonjasky cleanly and clearly in the ring.
I apologize to my fans who always lift my spirits. Please give me an opportunity to fight in front of them as soon as possible.

I hope they give Errol a shot at the title or just because I want it, maybe Spong.
