The K-1 World Grand Prix Final 2010 will air live on HDNet starting at 2 a.m. ET. For the 18th-straight year, K-1 will look to crown a World GP champion. Last year’s champion Semmy Schilt has a chance to break the record for most titles with five.
He got off to a bit of a rocky start in the quarterfinals, looked much better in the semifinals, and by the time he faced off with K-1 legend Peter Aerts in the finals, “Ubereem” was in full effect.
Following his defeat of Ben Edwards at this weekend’s K-1 2010 World Grand Prix Final 16, Alistair Overeem advances to the Final 8 where he will face Tyrone Spong on Dec. 11 in Japan.
It is that time of year again. The first round of the K-1 World Grand Prix Final kicks off with the Final 16 card tonight and airs LIVE at 2 a.m. ET live on HDNet from Seoul, South Korea.
