At age 21, Singh “Heart” Jaideep became the youngest fighter to qualify for the K-1 World Grand Prix (WGP).

He unfortunately did not endear himself to the fans with the lackluster, five-round snoozefest against Ewerton Teixeira at Olympic Park in Seoul, Korea. Unless he can stage an impressive comeback, he will not linger in the collective memory of the K-1 world for too long.

Nevertheless, his participation in the WGP bears the mark of an important milestone — given his ethnicity/nationality.

It's because of their stretchy limbs.

I've been at all of his live K-1 fights out of chance, and I think he's got a long way to go but he's a young kid, he's really tall and has a lot of time to work out some of his problems. He really took it to Teixeira in a bout that should have easily been Ewerton's to win. I think in a couple years he'll be someone to watch out for.

Also met the guy after that fight, nice dude. He was really funny too, he was just wandering around places aimlessly. I saw him like 4 times in places he really didnt need to be.

On a related note... how long do you have to take yoga until they show you how to breath fire? I have been training yoga for two months now at the mall and have been waiting patiently but am almost at the end of my rope.

I'm curious why we don't see more Thai fighters in K-1 max and more Thai standouts overall.
