It was only a matter of time before K-1 finalized their May 27th fight card, and now they've done just that. On top of the MAX line-up which was announced earlier on Friday, additional Superfights were announced late Friday evening via press release. A big question is the inclusion of Mosab Amrani vs. Zeben Diaz and how both men seem like a better fit than a fighter like Gago Drago who has fallen on tough times of late and might not belong in the K-1 World MAX Grand Prix. The big fights are at Heavyweight and are worth marveling at. The additional fights are as follows:
Superfight: Mosab Amrani vs. Zeben Diaz
Heavyweight: Badr Hari vs. Anderson "Braddock" Silva
Heavyweight: Mirko Cro Cop vs. Loren Javier Jorge
Heavyweight: Daniel Ghita vs. Paul Slowinski
Heavyweight: Rico Verhoeven vs. Sergei Laschenko
