K-1 Crash Course

Ok I have always been a UFC fan my whole life I have recently got into other orgs like Dream, Affliction, Strikeforce and I started checking out all the Pride FC fights I missed. I have no interest in Boxing in fact I probobly couldn't even list off 5 fighters but I like the idea of K-1.

That sounds cool to me!

The only problem is I don't know any fighters and don't know where to start. Can someone help me out and list of a few of the greatest fights ever? Maybe some backround info when K-1 started etc the best fighters I should know and all that?

Thanks.

As far as greatest fights ever i cant help you there sadly as i have only started watching a year ago. But i would recommend you go into the K-1 video thread as im sure MLS had added them while he was here. Names to look out for would be Peter Aerts, Ernesto Hoost and Andy hug while in there as they all have great fights.

For the back ground info its best to read the History of K-1 on wikipedia.

There are 2 types of K-1 GP's. The first and oldest one is the K-1 World Grand Prix which focuses on HW-SHW fighters(past champions). Some notable fighters would be Remy Bonjasky, Peter Aerts, Badr Hari, Gokhan Saki, Melvin Manhoef, and Tyrone Spong.

The second type of K-1 GP's would be K-1 World MAX GP. MAX stands for Middleweight Artistic Xtreme. Notable fighters would be Albert Kraus, Masato, Buakaw Por.Pramuk, Andy Souwer and Artur Kyshenko

All of the fighters metioned are in the Video thread. Hope this helps you out.

I'm definitely not a huge K-1 guy but for a decent UFC-K-1 tie-in with one of my favorite K-1 fighters check out Michael McDonald schooling a very young Mirko:
