Over at HeadKickLegend, we have news of Sergei Kharitonov's upcoming K-1 debut.

Chalid "Die Faust" Arrab has dropped out of the reserve fight against Daniel Ghita at the Grand Prix.  Replacing will be  Kharitonov.  Best known for his run in PRIDE, Kharitonov is an extremely odd choice for this fight, as this will be not only his K-1 debut, but also his first fight in a professional kickboxing organization. 

Kharitonov has been mostly on the sidelines for the past few years, competing only 3 times since the end of PRIDE and going 2-1, all in MMA competition.  Of note, one of those fights is a win over fellow MMA star turned kickboxer Alistair Overeem, who he defeated at a Hero's event in 2007.  The news of Kharitonov making a move to kicboxing is completely unexpected, and needless to say, he's diving in against a very tough opponent.
