K-1 Rising May 27 Poster

It has been a while since we've had a K-1 poster, but it appears that the first poster issued by K-1 Global has leaked out, featuring Badr Hari and Cro Cop for the Heavyweights, Andy Souwer, Mike Zambidis as the big MAX names. It is from what appears to be an 'official' Facebook for K-1 Global's K-1 RISING series.

Peter Aerts Biography in the Works

AertsLiverKick is very proud to announce that our good friends, Daniel Dee and Karel ten Haaf, who run the "Short Circuit" blog and writers of the Dutch book, K-1: Of the Beauty and Power will be penning the biography of the legendary Dutch Lumberjack, Mr. K-1 himself, Peter Aerts. They released a statement earlier today on the book and will send out more updates as they come.

"Last Wednesday we spoke with martial arts legend Peter Aerts and his wife Esther. After a cozy and especially fruitful conversation, we with great pride announce that Peter Aerts agreed that we - Daniel Dee and Karel ten Haaf - are to write his biography.

The triple K-1 world champion is as famous in Japan as Johan Cruyff is in the Netherlands. Moreover, Peter Aerts is dearly loved and popular in Japan and the Netherlands. We have therefore agreed that the biography will not only be released in the Netherlands but also in Japan.

Esther and Peter Aerts believe that it is important that it is a richly illustrated book, which is logical, because martial arts is of course a prime spectator sport. The intention is that a large format book (say about A4) in full color. A coffee table book about the life and work of one of the largest Dutch athletes ever."


K-1 Announces Full May 27th Fight Card, Badr Hari vs. Anderson Silva

K-1 Rising

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
