Hoost is one of the greatest K1 fighters ever but he is retired now. If you dont go by rankings Semmy Schilt still is the clear best. The guy hasnt been really troubled by anyone and two of his three losses are very questionable by the judges.

Franklin,Gouveia,Maia,Kharitonov,Hunt,Liddell,Pari syan,Hardy,Shlemenko,Machida,Gomi,Bustamante,Evans ,Edgar,Hathaway,Bonnar,Murray,S.Carter,Ludwig,Pett is,K.Gill,Sobral,Mousasi,D.Cruz,Arona,Nogueiras,Co te,Ole Laursen,Kawajiri,Sakuraba & K1 Lebanner!

Great list just gonna add Le Banner (great ******* boxing skills) to the GP fighters. And he has fought in K-1 before but is like Manhoef and Spong (these two NEED to fight each other) Nathan Corbett.

Also add Yod to the not really in K-1 but has fought there before list to and if you add Hiroya I'm gonna add Urabe and Yudai to for the young fighters.

Damn, how could I forget "The Kind without a crown" JLB?

Also, good good call on Urabe. At first we thought it would just be HIROYA~! as the stand out champ, but both those dudes are serious studs.

Have you watched the final since because I've watched it a couple times and every time I score it differently. That was a pretty close fight that coud have gone either way.

Also to add to some Under 18 fighters that if they develop could be good MAX fighters would be Kizaemon Saiga, Kenji Kubo, Taishi Hiratsuka, and Ryuya Kusakabe.

Hiroya wants a rematch with Yudai.

Yeah, I watched it about twice, and Yudai really puts it on Hiroya, and if I'm not mistaken, even rocks him. It was pretty back and forth. I thought Hiroya really works his kicks and counters well, so I'm not hatin on the decision.

I actually heard of Saiga and Kizaemon before Hiroya. Saiga is tiny though.
