YOKOHAMA, Japan, Sept. 17 -- K-1's 2007 HERO'S middleweight tournament saw its concluding chapter this evening at the Yokohama Arena, where American Top Team's "JZ Calvan" Gesias Calvancanti (Pictures) took the top spot once again, defeating two fellow Brazilians in "Dida" Andre Amade (Pictures) and the vaunted "Shaolin" Vitor Ribeiro (Pictures).

Sergei Kharitonov (Pictures) avenged his PRIDE loss to Alistair Overeem (Pictures) by KO in the first after an exciting round of back-and-forth stand-up action. With the striking favoring the Dutchman in the earlier portion of the fight, Overeem was able to tag Kharitonov with hard low kicks, winging right hooks, and stiff jabs.
