Sergei just announced this on his official website.

Go Sergei! I hope he makes a good comeback

Sergei should have no problem with Gilbert in my opinion.

Yvel will always be considered an idiot for hitting a ref, though it was probably the best chance at a win he had in awhile(I think he is 1-6/7 in pride).... easy win for sergei, possible win for yvel if he recovers from the loss and can KO the ref.

Kharitonov has something to prove after his last two matches: both stopped due to strikes in the first round.
Since his gorgeous dismantling of a much smaller Ninja in April of "04, he's been a mediocre 5-3.
Victory over a well seasoned and always potent Yvel would offer much needed momentum.

Gilbert may have a chance standing if he can keep from disqualifying himself.

It's good to hear that he's going for a comeback and a match already. But it really pisses me off when fighters get D/Q bec. of stupidity. Sergie might have this one on for the easy ride up a win. I hope no refs go down faster than the fighters.

I am going for sergei. hope he really trains like he should, instead of doing that farmboy work that was said in his last fight.

They both can strike Yvel is more of a kickboxer with great high kicks but has a problem leaving his chin exposed and to a smart technical striker like Sergei it may spell trouble not to mention Segrei is very good on the ground. But both fighters need a win so it will be intense i'm sure but if i were to pick i would have to say Sergei.

I used to love Gilbert, he is such an exciting stand up fighter, yet he's not got the ground game for pride, stand up's just not good enough for K1. It's a shame.

If the fight goes to the mat and sergei doesn't submit him in five minutes, I will be really suprised.

Sergei has the better hands, and better ground skills. Gilbert only has his knees and kicks what might become a factor. Sergei by ko in round 1!

Although Yvel's attitude and actions are deplorable, this has no effect on his skills.

I could see him taking this via KO. It's a gut feeling.

Sergei has had a bad year in 2006. I expect him to be making his comeback to title contention. Expect Sergei to win by KO

I remember first seeing Yvel fight Tsuyoshi Khosaka on RINGS tape back in 2000 and was amazed at his striking.

When he moved to the big leauges,outisde of his highlight reel KO of Goodridge, he has lost practically every important fight he has been in (Belfort,Igor,Fujita,Frye,Horn).

I fully expect him to continue this trend against Sergei..

The Serg is going to ko him, standing or on the ground!

Sergei absolutley smashed Semmy, you ever seen the movie Sin City? It reminded me of when Bruce Willis smashed that creepy yellow rapist guys face into the barn floor.

Gilbert has absolutley nothing to offer on the ground. If the fight goes there then Sergei is in for an easy night.

eh semmy schilt doesnt know much from the ground, except to hold the wrists as hard as he can and try to buck out... in the stand-up he was winnin kharitonov, hence him bein the k1 gp winner.. its ok i think team golden glory will train him more to b e better on the ground

I agree, but there's really no reason for Semmy to leave K1, he owns that world right now and people are already buzzing about him breaking Hoost's record (4 GP's). I think he's better off staying on his feet and gong toe to toe with the world class strikers of K1.

Semmy is so boring as a K1 fighter however effective he is with those long limbs, it bores the hell out of me, limits the potential for ko's. However technically Semmy is spot on and I don't really see how anybody is going to have much luck beating him in the nearby future.

Ya... It was the same deal with Lennox Lewis, IMO... A lot of his fights were a little on the boring side, but technically he was where he needed to be.

I guess it just upsets people when you see the guy's got size and you know the guys got KO power, but doesn't necessarily use it, isn't the aggresive enough, and going after the finish...

Kinda reminds me of someone else in their last couple of fights...

In the eyes of fans, both casual and rabid, fighting to win and fighting not to lose are two completely different things, even though they'll both give you the W.

yeah, imo sergei has this one in the bag, unless he gets caught with some wild shot.

Apparently I'm in the minority, but I've got Yvel taking this one. Sergei is definitely better on the ground, but Yvel is very good at avoiding subs on the ground and has rarely been tapped out. Most ground fighters take him to decisions. On the feet, you'd be hard pressed to find someone with the KO power of Yvel, and Sergei has a nasty habit of standing with guys he really shouldn't. If Sergei sticks to his strong suit, I think he'll be fine, but if he wants to trade with Yvel, he'll be eating canvas.

I still have $50 left in my account. How about a friendly wager? Let me know , I'm a big Kharitanov fan.

Wager sent.

I actually hate Yvel as a person, after what he did to Don Frye, but he has undeniable KO power. I like Sergei, but he needs to stop standing with guys who are clearly superior strikers. Its ballsy, but its foolish.

Thanks for the wager, I don't think many people like Yvel. I actually wish he would get to fight Fedor just so I could see him get pounded.
