Badr Hari Confesses Guilt in Latest Assault Case

BadrIt appears that the bad boy himself, Badr Hari has finally given up the fight when it comes to his latest assault case against him. Hari, no stranger to controversy or even assault cases, has found himself accused of an assault on businessman Koen Everink at the Amsterdam ArenA during a recent event in a skybox. The assault left him with problems with an ankle and damage to his face, with doctors telling him that he'll never walk normally again. Hari turned himself in last week after a vacation with his new girlfriend, former wife of Ruud Gullit, Estelle Cruijff. That love affair, of course, was not without rumors as well, as Gullit claimed it was an extramarital affair on behalf of his wife, and for Badr his girlfriend just gave birth to their child in May.

Badr has only fought twice in the past three years, in part because of a previous assault case from a nightclub in Holland in February of 2010. There, it was claimed a similar incident happened, and Hari was unable to compete for the entire year, with issues finally being sorted out by December when he was released. Now it appears, in this case, that Badr has admitted to his guilt to police, which for fans of Hari means not to expect to see him in the ring any time soon or ever again. It is not clear what the punishment wil be, so keep visiting for updates on what will happen to Hari now that he's confessed.

K-1 MAX Final in Athens Dec. 7, WGP Final in New York Dec. 26

K-1 has released their full schedule for the rest of the year on their website, now displaying the dates and locations for their MAX Final and World Grand Prix Final events.

The K-1 MAX Final 8 will take place in Athens, Greece on December 7. Obviously with Mike Zambidis expected to take part, this location is a no-brainer, business-wise. Zambidis always draws huge crowds in Greece and this should probably be no different.

The K-1 World Grand Prix Final 8 will take place in New York City as we already know, and it'll be on December 26. A few things to note here: December 26 is a Wednesday. It's also the day after Christmas and right in the middle of the holiday season, after Christmas and before New Years.

The rest of K-1's events this year are upcoming. The first one will take place in Los Angeles on September 8, featuring the American Grand Prix. The World Grand Prix Final 16 takes place in Tokyo on October 14.
