The match that Alistair Overeem has been saying he'd be in on his website is now official for K-1 Dynamite!! FEG has officially announced Overeem vs. Badr Hari in a K-1 Rules match.

Considering Alistair has a 4-2 kickboxing record, and hari was the K1champ, I have to go will Hari(though if is was MMA rules I'd go will Overeem)

Overeem gets wrecked by good K-1 guys under K-1 rules. It surprised me that Overeem would be willing to lose his momentum by getting KOed.

Man this is gonna be a hell of a fight. I'm torn though, good thing we dont have to pick it Everyone's been right IMO Hari has the kickboxing edge, id say only a slight one though. Overeem just keeps improving with every with and im sure he'll come out with a monsterlike performance in this one. Hari has mad skills though, crap attitude but maaad skilets.

This is a bad fight for Overeem, He has a chance to win, but not a great one.

Hari. TKO rnd 2

Everyone's giving Alistair way too much credit. Yes he's improved his all around MMA game, but this is K-1 and Hari is arguably the #1 K1 fighter in the world. Alistair is way overmatched, and I'd be surprised if he makes it out of the first round.

When Overeem fought Feitosa under K-1 rules it looked like a man abusing a child. I don't expect this to be any different.

I agre Wolf. I think everyone who's saying it should be a close fight needs to go watch Badr's fights, I absolutly hate the guy but 69 wins with 56 coming by way of t/ko while Alistair has been out classed on the feet in mma. Alistair also won't have a height and reach advantage and despite Badr's slim build he packs huge power, while Alistair has a weak chin. Badr's chin isn't the greatest so there is a punchers chance for Overeem.

, although it seems Badr almost always gets back up unfazed... his fight with zimmerman at the last k-1 event for instance.

Second hardest shot of the tournament, 1rst belonging to Bojansky's Knee to flying body kick combo.

on a side note, what ever happened to Hari getting suspension for the WGP final DQ. WIth K-1 rules Hari has this hands down but there is always a punchers chance but man Hari is nasty on his feet.
