There are some pretty sick fights on there... I can hardly wait.

What i'll be watching with great excitement:

Badr Hari vs. Zabit Samedov
Peter Aerts vs. Alistair Overeem
Remy Bonjasky vs. Melvin Manhoef
Jerome LeBanner vs. Musashi
Ewerton Teixeira vs. Singh "Heart" Jaideep

All in all though the whole card is just crazy.

Awesome card. My only complaint is no Gokhan Saki. But I like the match making for once, and I think we will see an epic tourney.

I guess Overeems hand is healed enough to fight in K1 but not quite healthy enough to defend his Strikeforce title.

Strange.

C'mon now... The Strikeforce card was almost a month ago and the GP isn't untill the end of this month... These things do heal, but it takes time and the need for a full training camp... That and a lot of people like seeing Alistar in K-1 too, as seen on the fan pole further down the page... I like what K-1 is doing
