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.
