That is a bummer, they offer some replacement ideas in this article

The big question now is who K-1 will be able to find on short notice to replace Arlovski. Maybe Ruslan Karaev is doing better? Alexey Ignashov would love to get another shot at the K-1 World Grand Prix, I'm sure.

His replacement will be Migthy Mo.
Catinas vs Mo will be interesting - both have HUGE power in their fists. The one who strikes first, will take this.

Right you were, hopefully we can stop talking about replacements with this one if we're lucky, this article confirms but share opinion as well:

Quote:
As we reported earlier this week, former UFC Heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski will NOT be making his much discussed K-1 debut at the Final 16 this weekend. Kombat.ro has now revealed that it will be Mighty Mo taking Arlovski's spot against Raul Catinas in the Final 16. Kombat.ro has been a reliable source for fighter announcements in the past, so even though K-1 has yet to make this official (or even change their page to reflect the Ray Sefo/Ruslan Karaev swap), I would consider this a done deal.

Mo is a weird choice for this slot. A few years ago, Mo had the knockout power and aggression to be a real player in K-1, as best shown by his stunning KO victory over Hong-Man Choi back in 2007. But those days are behind him now. He's 2-7 in his last 9, and is coming off a definitive KO loss to Sebastian Ciobanu in the semi-finals of the Bucharest GP. He's simply not the fighter he once was, at even at his best he only qualified for the Final 8 once, in 2004.

What he does have going for him is name recognition and popularity. He's also American, and K-1 has made some efforts this year to establish an American representative - a smart move now that their shows are seen in America on HDNet. So it's not entirely shocking K-1 would turn to him, even if he won't be a factor.

The big winner here is Raul Catinas - I see no reason Catinas does not take the win here, earning himself an unlikely spot in the Final 8. This could be a breakout performance for Catinas, a rising prospect who has suddenly found himself in the spotlight.

I only heard it on a romanian sport television.
10x for the link.
It will be Mo's 3rd fight against a romanian fighter. He already has 2 losses to Ciobanu and Morosanu.
I think Catinas takes this one.
I had my money on him against Arlosvki annyway.

Damn, WGP sucks this year imo . I'll still watch it tho lol

Edit: Max 70 show streamed for free on K-1 website

Quote:
Great news here - K-1 has announced that Sunday's MAX Grand Prix Final 16 event will be streamed live on their website. The show begins at 3:00 pm Tokyo time Sunday afternoon, which translates to 2:00 am Sunday morning Eastern time in the US (Tokyo time is +9 GMT). No further details yet, though they should be available at their site when they are set. This is especially good news because MAX shows traditionally are not aired live or on any sort of reasonable schedule. In the US, this show won't air on TV until October 22 when HDNet finally airs it. Great chance here to finally watch some MAX action live.

MMafighting try to talk Americans into staying up late, and give their picks for the fights on the show (Final 16 only):

Quote:
Many American fans are disappointed that former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski has pulled out of the K-1 World Grand Prix 2010 Final 16 in Seoul. But the event still includes (by my count) eight of the Top 10 heavyweight kickboxers in the world, a collection of talent you almost never see on one fight card, in any combat sport.

So if you're an American fan staying up very late Friday night or getting up very early Saturday morning to watch on HDNet, you're not going to be disappointed. We've got the full preview and predictions below.

What: K-1 World Grand Prix 2010 in Seoul Final 16

Where: Olympic Gymnastics Arena, Seoul, South Korea

When: The event starts at 2 AM ET and is broadcast live on HDNet in the United States.

Predictions on the eight tournament bouts:

Ray Sefo vs Tyrone Spong
The 39-year-old Sefo is one of K-1's greats, but I don't think he has enough left to beat the 25-year-old Spong, who's a little undersized but still getting better while Sefo is past his prime.
Pick: Spong

Gökhan Saki vs Freddy Kemayo
Saki is both younger and more accomplished than Kemayo, and Saki is coming off a very good performance in a TKO win over Melvin Manhoef. But I like Kemayo to use his height and reach advantage and pull off what should probably be considered a small upset.
Pick: Kemayo

Errol Zimmerman vs Daniel Ghiţă
This is a tough draw for Ghita: I think he's good enough to beat most of the kickboxers in the Final 16, but Zimmerman is among the sport's truly elite, looked like an absolute beast in his last fight, and probably wins this one handily.
Pick: Zimmerman

Jérôme Le Banner vs Kyotaro
The French Le Banner is a longtime fan favorite in K-1, but Kyotaro is coming off a great showing in defending his K-1 heavyweight title by knocking out Peter Aerts, and I expect Kyotaro to roll into the Final 8.
Pick: Kyotaro

Ewerton Teixeira vs Peter Aerts
This is yet another match-up of an up-and-comer in his 20s taking on an aging legend of the sport, and although it would be great to see Aerts -- who will turn 40 this month -- in the Final 8, I just don't see him being at a stage in his career when he can still beat an opponent at the level of Teixeira.
Pick: Teixeira

Mighty Mo vs Raul Cătinaş
The short and portly Mighty Mo is a late replacement for Arlovski, and it's hard to see him having much of a chance against Catinas. This doesn't look to me like a competitive match-up.
Pick: Catinas

Semmy Schilt vs Hesdy Gerges
Schilt is without a doubt the best heavyweight kickboxer in the world, and the biggest question about this year's World Grand Prix is whether anyone can stop Schilt from becoming the first five-time K-1 World Grand Prix champion. The two guys who had the best chance of derailing Schilt, Remy Bonjasky and Badr Hari, are both sitting this year's World Grand Prix out, which should mean Schilt rolls. Gerges is a fine kickboxer, but he's not the guy to beat Schilt.
Pick: Schilt

Alistair Overeem vs Ben Edwards
Most American fans wish Overeem would defend the Strikeforce heavyweight title instead of kickboxing in Japan, but I love seeing him test himself in the K-1 ring. Edwards is a heavy-hitting Australian who broke Jerome Le Banner's K-1 record for fastest tournament title, needing just 3 minutes, 28 seconds to win three fights in this year's K-1 World Grand Prix in Canberra -- so don't assume that Overeem is getting an easy knockout here. But I do believe Overeem's size and strength advantage will be too much for Edwards.
Pick: Overeem

Sato did not exactly seem to belong in there with Kharitonov, thankfully the Final 16 are coming up next.

Spong moves on to the final beating Sugar Ray Sefo with ease, Ray did not have as much notice of course. Was funny watching him throw those taunts at Spong even as he was eating those right crosses and leg kicks.
