At 4am Eastern time Saturday morning live on HDNet the K-1 Grand Prix is set to take place. As the first K-1 show of the year K-1 has gone ahead and set the bar quite high for this non-tournament show. This show opens up the K-1 heavyweight season with a bang, featuring two title fights and a rematch years in the making between Alexey Ignashov and Badr Hari. On top of that, longtime K-1 Japanese stalwart Musashi gets a heartfelt retirement ceremony.
The big draw for the MMA fans here is Alistair Overeem entering into K-1 competition again in 2010 just about a month away from defending his Strikeforce Heavyweight Championship for the first time in years and fighting in the United States again. At Head Kick Legend I take a look at this fight as well as the rest of the card.
#4: Alistair Overeem v. Dzevad Poturak
Alistair Overeem is set to defend his Strikeforce Heavyweight Championship in May against Brett "The Grimm" Rogers, but first he takes on a very game challenge of Poturak in a tune-up fight. His manager, Bas Boon has done a tremendous job over the past few years of raising Overeem's stock by having him compete often in both K-1 and MMA and rack up impressive win after win. Overeem is looking to possibly take part in this year's World Grand Prix if his schedule permits, look for him to be on fire against Poturak.
Head Kick Legend will have live coverage tonight as the show unfolds and more coverage can be foundas well of the FieLDS K-1 World Grand Prix 2010.
