I'd love to see Rizzo as a K-1 striker. The dude used to bring it.

Others would be Sergei, Aleksander, Yvel, Anderson, the Old Chuck, Arlovski, and hell even Rampage.

What about Wand? He would be a good choice. You saw his dismantling of Kazuski Sakuraba.

I'm surprised at the number of people who mentioned Wandy. I love theg uy and he's really entertaining but I can't see him lasting in K-1. Look at the most successful champs, all very disciplined fighters, crisp striking and excellent defense. I think Wandy's success remains with MMA.

Rampage has fought in K-1 and been successful, I'd be interested in seeing him fight Remy. If Machida would push the pace relentlessly, I could see him being a force for Heavyweight...

Anderson would do ok I think, Machida would be pretty successful if he got more agressive as other people have said. Rampage would do well, he has KO power and good hand skills, and has already been successfull in k1. Gomi,and yamamoto (he knocked down masato so you know he would do well in k1 tournaments).

I don't think franklin has the stand up skills on the level of k1 fighters, so I don't think he would struggle alot. Chuck has bad technique for k1 (too many openings) yeah he has ko power, but the top k1 fighters would exploit those openings and beat him in my opinion.

Silva is a bit light for k1 I think. Machida wouldnt be good because karate doesnt work with heavy gloves.

I am not too sure about that mate, almost half of the K1 titles have been won by Karate fighters like seidokaikan and kyokushin styles.
Actually come to think of it apart from karate and muay thai, I cant think of any other style that has won it!!

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!

Seidokaikan and kyokushin differs a lot from shotokan and pretty much the rest of karate. Kyo is full contact, no hand gloves but no punches to the head. These karate fighters took boxing for k1 to improve their hands. Machida does shotokan karate which is mma gloves, half contact and punches to the head. Completely different styles. Machida does not punch often enough for a k1 match. With bigger gloves there are smaller holes for a punch to sneak in. And its harder to ko someone with boxing gloves.

I heard during the last Dream broadcast that Kawajiri was maybe going to fight Masato in K-1 MAX. He was awesome at Dynamite last year. He has hard hands for sure. Does he have any K-1 experience beyond that one fight?
