Peter Aerts HL reel

Mirko Crocop HL reel

i hadn't heard much about peter aerts before, since i'm not a die-hard k-1 fan, but he looks very impressive!

Feel free to comment other headkickers..
i personally like the yvel vs goodridge headkick, my favorite

haven't seen a lot of Aerts. Nice highlight reel though. Aerts may actually have better high kicks. Iid like to see them in a K-1 fight. I'd bet Cro-cop would win an MMa fight. He's been training ground with Werdum for a few years now, and is supposedlyu pretty good there now. I know they fought a long time ago and cr0-cop won , but I've never seen it. i'll search youtube. Still, they are both probably different fighters now.

Aerts probably has a better high kick than Cro Cop, I think that would be the general consensus within the K1 elite fans.

Other notable highkickers...

dont know much about aerts. but i think u can open a big can of worms if we go beyond the pride/ufc universe. for instance, there are many muay thai and san shou fighters with solid kicking games. ever hear of Buakaw Por Pramuk?

Buakaw is one of the greatest kickboxers I have ever, ever seen. I would of loved to of seen a match up against Dekkers in his prime.

Great links. Thanks for sharing. Im not sure if I got this correctly. This is the first time I've really seen big blows in K-1 since I've never really watched them or none are available on my cable. In K-1, elbows are now allowed? I did not see any elbow prep or targeting shots or something related. If it's now allowed, any inputs why?

Well, i'm not entirely sure, but I can make a guess as to why.

In K1, especially in the GP's the fighters fight numerous times a night, delivering elbows are liekly to cause cuts and prevent fighters from advancing or being able to fight the second fight of the night even if they do get past the first opponent.

Other than that, it's something i've always wondered myself, they are the essence of Muay Thai and this is the main discipline that is practised in K1, if anybody has a better insight I too would be interested to find out.

evilslut, if i understand your question, the reason for your confusion is because k1 has two different sets of rules. one set is kickboxing rules (without elbows), and the other set is mma rules (with elbows).
