    Overeem vs Teixeira

    Skip to 3:46 to see Overeem going to work with his trademark hammer.

    LeBanner vs Schilt

    Zimmerman vs Remy

    The vids are all pretty damn cool. Interesting to hear the interview with Schilt.

    My fight breakdowns of the first round:

    Remy vs Zimmerman
    I would love to see Zimmerman upset Bonjasky in the first round, and I think he has the punching power to do it, but it would have to be a perfect punch to get through Remy's defence. Remy is obvious strong favourite to win this fight.

    Le Banner vs Schilt
    Despite the massive amount of heart that LeBanner has, his body is wrecked and he seems to have lost the power and speed of his younger days, I see that he has very little chance of beating Schilt. I haven't seen betting odds but I'd guess that out of the first round, this fight would have the longest odds. I see Schilt taking this fairly easily.

    Teixeira vs Overeem
    I can't see what the hype is about Teixeira. He has solid heavy hands and good technique, but is generally slow and uninteresting. He reminds me of what Feitosa has become, a slow plodding workhorse without much flair. Overeem is pretty raw compared to most of these fighters, but even given this I think he will tear through Teixeira very quickly.

    Karaev vs Hari
    Their last fight was retardedly exciting, both of these guys are win- by-KO or go out guns a blazing fighters, this should be the most exciting fight of the first round. I see Hari taking it, Karaev can't take much of a punch, and Hari's punching power is these days pretty much unrivaled (except perhaps by Zimmerman).


    My picks

    1st round winners:


    Hari

    Overeem

    Schilt

    Bonjasky

    2nd round:

    Hari

    Schilt

    Final:

    Hari

    Dec 5, 3am est its on Live. HD Net fights

    I really like Karaev but I want to see Hari v Overreem, if I remember right I dont think Remy won the last fight as easy as the judges scored it but I think he'll win, I want to see Lebanner win but he wont beat Remy so Schilt makes for the best semi final fight

    You guys who think Overeem will take it all, probably have an overinflated view of him as a K1 fighter. Even though he is an unparalleled physical specimen, his run to victory would involve getting through some ridiculously tough opposition. I can't see him beating Schilt or Remy (who I am presuming to get to the final out of their side of the draw), even if he gets through Hari or Karaev. I think he should take Teixeira, but even that is not a given, Teixeira has solid technique.

    If he versus Schilt in the final, Schilt will own his soul.

    .
    Schilt will kill two people this month.




    The new and juiced overeem is very impressive, but I still cant imagine him not gassing after all that fighting. I wish I could see Hari KD him in the semi's.

    I was looking around for some betting odds (which were hard to find) and here are some from www.bet-at-home.com . I am having a hard time finding any value here. All the first round favourites are paying so short, I might fancy a punt on Zimmerman as a darkhorse to take out Remy in the first round.


    K-1, Tip
    Remy Bonjasky (NED) - Errol Zimmerman (SUR) 05/12/09 07:00 1,25 3,60
    Badr Hari (MAR) - Ruslan Karaev (RUS) 05/12/09 07:00 1,20 4,20
    Semi Schilt (NED) - Jerome Lebanner (FRA) 05/12/09 07:00 1,15 5,00
    Ewerton Teixeira (BRA) - Alistair Overeem (NED) 05/12/09 07:00 3,20 1,30

    K-1 Winner,

    Who will win the ´K-1 WORLD GP 2009 FINAL´ tournament in Japan? (05/12/09 07:00)
    Semi Schilt (NED) 2,50 Badr Hari (MAR) 2,85
    Alistair Overeem (NED) 4,00 Remy Bonjasky (NED) 7,00
    Ruslan Karaev (RUS) 25,00 Jerome Lebanner (FRA) 25,00
    Ewerton Teixeira (BRA) 25,00 Errol Zimmerman (SUR) 25,00


    Interesting to note that Overeem is ranked above Remy to win the GP, which is almost certainly because Remy is gonna have to face Schilt first to get to the final.

    Me too, at some point I seem to have started enjoying K-1 more than MMA, except when Fedor's fighting. It could have started happening around the time that Pride died (keep that shit out of this thread).

    in on this as well. I've been loving K-1 in late 08 and all of 09. Both the big boys and the little guys have a GREAT crop of fighters. No one is "dominating" every match, tons of great talent..

    MMA has become a gong show full of douchebag "bros"...

    Pure jiu jitsu and K1 > MMA
