Sorry if this has been done before, but considering how we always have countless fantasy matchup threads popping up through the years I thought maybe this would be a change of pace.

Pick any MMA fighters you wish. regardless of weightclass and make a fantasy matchup. However, these fantasy matches take place in K1. with only kickboxing rules. I can't help but to picture this one:


Melvin Manhoef vs Roy Nelson.

Sure the weight difference is absured but just imagine how entertaining that would be. could Nelson withstand an onslaught of Manhoefs leg kicks?
Or would the power behind Nelson's size take down the smaller fighter?



Who else has got one?

Bob Sapp vs. Frankie Edgar
I'd probably pick Frankie via shoryuken.
I reckon a good one would be Daley vs. Lawler

Jon Jones .vs. Stefan Struve

I want to see how those spinning back fists and elbows work on a fighter the length of Struve.

Kimbo Slice .vs. Rampage

The battle of the streets! Both fighters have that street persona where they want everyone to know that they have respect on the streets. Well, time for some (more) black on black crime!

BJ Penn .vs. Jose Aldo

Anyone else agree that this fight will be nothing but epic? Sure, Edgar WON his fight against Penn, but I want to see someone DESTROY Penn, to really dominate him, and I think Aldo would do just that. Penn needs more motivation as he ages, and the ass whooping from Aldo should do wonders.

(Prime) Chuck Liddell .vs. Forrest Griffin

Nothing better than a teacher .vs. student match up. I was really hoping that this fight would come up after Liddell beat Wanderlei, but nothing happened. I honestly think this fight would be exciting for the fans, since both fighters have a huge fan base, and the style clash would be interesting to watch. Oh well. At least I can go back and play this fight as much as I want on Undisputed.

Tito Ortiz .vs. Ryan Bader

Dana White, if you somehow stumble across this, PLEASE MAKE IT HAPPEN! This would be nothing short of amazing, considering I think Bader would put a beating on Ortiz. If Bader loses to Jones, and Ortiz dominates Hamill, I would love to see this fight happen!

The list just goes on and on, but I'll stop here..

Mark Hominick vs. Sam Stout would be a barn burner I think.

if it was K1 rules, Stout vs Edgar, boxer vs kickboxer
stout vs fisher II was spectacular, this would be the same.

I wracked my brain for potential K1 vs. MMA fighters (to even make the twist cooler) but the closest I could come to fun fights, Overeem aside, are Spong/Silva and Aldo/Buakaw, but even then the MMA fighter would get beat up pretty bad.

Anderson Silva vs. Cung Le

Petrosyan v. Thiago Alves

The weight difference would be key for Alves

I dont think he could take him down, nor last 3 minutes on the feet.

Liddell vs. Cro Cop



That would be very interesting indeed!

CC definently has the experince advantage considering he's K1 level, but I think one thing Chuck has still got that CC doesn't is the "kill switch".

Oh man, Silva would do things to Cung Le that are illegal in most countries
