This Friday, March 15, Bloody Elbow presents live coverage of the K-1 World Grand Prix 2013 (or 2012, depending on how you want t look at it). For the first time since Alistair Overeem took the title in 2010, K-1 will crown a new Heavyweight Grand Prix champion. Tournament participants include Badr Hari and Mirko Cro Cop among others. The K-1 World Grand Prix 2013 airs this Friday, March 15 live from Zagreb, Croatia at 3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT. Bloody Elbow will have live fight coverage, including results and discussion. The K-1 World Grand Prix is available as a live stream online.
Obviously, it's been a tough road to get here, but now that the GP is finally upon us, we can look forward to a pretty good tournament. Two big stories have emerged to watch in this tournament. First, is Badr Hari back for real? This is his first fight since spending some real jail time last year, and it came seemingly out of nowhere. Is he in shape to fight? Second, what does Cro Cop have left? The K-1 and MMA legend has had a solid run since returning to kickboxing last year, and there is no better story here than the longtime legend finally winning the K-1 crown in front of his Croatian fans. Can the fairy tale ending come true?
Here is the complete fight card:
