During the K-1 World Grand Prix 2009 post-fight press conference held on Sunday, Dec. 6, K-1 event producer, Sadaharu Tanigawa, hinted at the continuation of the "K-1 vs. MMA" clash that began in earnest with the Dynamite!! 2008.In the annual K-1/MMA hybrid fight card on New Year's Eve last year, MMA fighters accomplished a clean sweep of the K-1 squad in a series of matches contested under MMA and K-1 rules.In the MMA matches, Mirko Cro Cop chopped down the "Techno Goliath," Hong Man Choi, with leg kicks and Minowaman submitted the K-1 fighter and MMA debutant, Errol Zimmerman, in 61 seconds. Then, the MMA trio of Alistair Overeem, Gegard Mousasi, and Tatsuya Kawajiri stepped up to the K-1 turf to hand dispiriting losses to the proud K-1 vets, Badr Hari, Musashi and Kozo Takeda.

Fedor already crushed Schilt. Overeem will happen in Japan only though.

I don't even think Semmy's kickboxing that great, technically speaking. It's good, don't get me wrong, but I think most of his success is a result of his height and reach. Guys like Hoost and Bonjasky are far more technically sound IMO. Semmy might have a chance in a k-1 fight, but he would get crushed by Fedor in an MMA contest even worse than last time.

Your right, it's not that great. If he was smaller even like 6'6 he would get destroyed.
