In a move that has the potential to greatly impact the 2010 K-1 Grand Prix, Hesdy Gerges's team has filed a formal complaint against Semmy Schilt stemming from their Final 16 match last weekend. Filed by Black Label Fighting and It's Showtime, the complaint argues that Schilt received illegal medical attention between rounds of the October 2 fight and calls for Schilt to be disqualified from the December 11 Grand Prix finals.

In the K-1 regulations is written that in case a fighter gets injured during the fight, the wound may not be treated by one of the cornermen without interference of the official physician and referee. However, this did happen right after the first round by [Schilt's manager] Bas Boon. Schilt, who received numerous lowkicks right from the beginning of the fight, didn't check one of those lowkicks very well so his right shinbone got torn open. If the referee had seen this right away, the doctor had to take a look at the wound and continuing the fight wouldn't have been medically responsible. The referee never discovered this wound, because Schilt's corner ‘secretly' applied a lot of tape on the wound.

I wonder if the Badr Hari death rumor today was in related to this story somehow, in some sort of pissing contest?
