K-1 World MAX 2010 - Petrosyan makes history!
 
History was made in this year's K-1 World MAX Finals, when Giorgio Petrosyan became the first fighter to win two consecutive titles.
In the final, reigning champion Giorgio Petrosyan defeated Yoshihiro Sato to claim his 2nd MAX GP crown.

Quote:

The fight began with them feeling out the distance, and Sato throwing the odd low kick. Petrosyan avoiding Sato's punches for the most part, but managed to power in several of his own that threaded through the guard.
Sato came out a little harder in the next round, but he certainly looked a lot more tired than Petrosyan. The Italian's boxing looked crisp, while Sato's low kicks all but faded away completely. He tried to keep up with the knees that brought him victory over DRAGO, but even they didn't seem to be the same, and they were getting countered.
Sato came out with everything he had in the final round, but "The Doctor" used his distancing perfectly to duck in and out of range ensuring he stayed out of danger while scoring some points. When the final bell rang, the judges' cards were barely needed as the look on Yoshihiro Sato's face told the entire story.
The first ever consecutive champion in K-1World MAX was final crowned. His Name, Giorgio Petrosyan. He said, "I don't know what to say. This year my goal was to become the first champion winning two belts in a row. Now, I truly feel like I have become number 1!"

My thoughts: Petrosyan was the favorite, i had him winning this tournament, but i was hoping for Sato to finally win this!
PS: Osmium - good prediction!:thumbsup:

That dude is incredible. He is so dominant, he is like the mw version of Semmy, he seems untouchable right now. Petroysan and Buakaw need to go at it again and in K1 this time.

The K1 Max fighters are incredible: amazing technique + cardio + skill + ...everything.
It's a pleasure watching them fight!

A shame Souwer and Buakaw didn't participate in this year's tournament!
