Sportsnoavi reported about FEG's press conference in Tokyo on December 17. In the conference, FEG announced the penalties against Badr Hari's action in K-1 World GP 2008 on December 6.

Sadaharu Tanikawa K-1 event producer:
“After having a meeting with Nobuaki Kakuda rule director, judges and FEG, we decided to give him the heaviest penalties in K-1 history. He is stripped of his heavyweight title and not paid for his participation in K-1 World GP. We don't suspend his license in K-1 because our current rules don't allow us to do that. We are going to modify the rules to allow for suspensions starting 2009. We take back our plan of offering him fights in Dynamite and K-1 event in March. We haven't reached a decision when he comes back. We expect a lot from him. We hope he gets mentally stronger, and regain the title of K-1 champion someday.”

Badr Hari accepted the FEG's decision and made an apology for his action.
“I'm sorry that my action disappointed my fans. I truly regret what I did. I hope I can come back to K-1 ring soon.”

Tanikawa also commented about Satoshi Ishii.
“I'm very disappointed to hear his decision of challenging to the UFC. If he hasn't contracted with them yet, I don't give up. I will try to convince him to stay in Japan. It's great for him to pursue his dream, but he is too good to let go easily.”

Definitely! But at the same time the damage remy took on the ground didn't look that bad to me. I think he could have go on, but prefered to take the belt through disqualification..

If u have the time, u can go on mmalinker.com and watch the fight. In the 2rd (maybe 3rd, im not completey sure) Hari had remy rocked and did a sort of leg sweep to take him down but instead of stopping there he did a stomp to remy's face when remy was his back while the ref was tryin to split them up. I somewhat agree with blacksheep but only remy knows how hard the K-1 hw champ can actually stomp someone in the face plus remy is a well-respected guy

It was a little dirty. But I think that this much action is unnecessary.

I think the main reason they went this far is because it was in the GP final
