The fight between two-time K-1 MAX champion Buakaw Por. Pramuk and MMA lightweight standout Andre "Dida" Amade has officially been rescheduled for April's K-1 World MAX Final 16 show, after an injury forced the Brazilian to back out out of their February date. "Dida" told Tatame last month that he's split with Universidade da Luta - the Curitiba-based team he founded with the Rua brothers - and opened his own gym, Evolução Thai, in Canada.
Other bouts added to the Final 16 feature the last man to defeat Pramuk, Albert Kraus, against flamboyant cosplay warrior Yuichiro Nagashima, as well as two-time K-1 MAX Japan champion Yoshihiro Sato against Armenia's perennial K-1 MAX contender Gago Drago.
