Ben Edwards Says He's Fighting Jaideep at the K-1 WGP Final 16

  • Written by Rian Scalia

With the K-1 World Grand Prix Final 16 shrouded in mystery, things are finally starting to come together, apparently. It's a bit over three weeks before the event and no official announcements from K-1 have been made regarding the fight card. Hesdy Gerges has said he's fighting Errol Zimmerman and there are a few other rumored match-ups floating around, but nothing concrete.

We learned of one more fight today though, as Ben Edwards took to Facebook to announce that he'd be facing Singh "Heart" Jaideep at the Final 16 on October 29th. It's a match-up of two relatively unproven fighters in K-1. Ben Edwards is probably most remembered for getting destroyed by Alistair Overeem, but he did win the K-1 World Grand Prix 2010 in Canberra, with a good stoppage win over Paul Slowinski in the finals. This year, Edwards has picked up wins over Mighty Mo and Carter Williams. Jaideep won the K-1 World Grand Prix 2009 in Seoul, albeit over a very low level of competition. Aside from that, he did knock out Sergei Kharitonov. This year, Jaideep lost to fellow Final 16 participant Xhavit Bajrami in June and picked up a win over Tsutomu Takahagi at RISE 83 last month.



Hopefully the fight card gets announced soon, but you just never know in this current situation.
