K-1 World Grand Prix 2010 Final 16 Live Results and Discussion

Stay up late tonight with for live results and discussion of the heavyweight half of this weekend's K-1 double-header in South Korea. (Tomorrow night, we'll have coverage of the K-1 MAX Final 16.)

Sixteen fighters - including Strikeforce heavyweight titlist Alistair Overeem and reigning K-1 champ Semmy Schilt - will be in action to determine who moves on to the final round of kickboxing's most prestigious tournament on Dec. 11.

The live HDNet broadcast kicks off at 2 a.m. ET / 11 p.m. PT.

Quick results:

Final 16 Tournament Bouts - 3R x 3 min. + 2R Ext.
Alistair Overeem def. Ben Edwards via TKO (punches) R1, 2:06
Overeem scored his first knockdown about one minute into the match and was never in trouble here. Ninety seconds in, a crushing overhand right sent Edwards to the canvas again. Edwards was somehow able to make it to his feet and beat the eight count, only to be sent down for the final time by a one-two pair of vicious Overeem hooks. Utter domination for the Strikeforce champion.

Semmy Schilt def. Hesdy Gerges via split decision, R3
"Mighty Mo" Siligia def. Raul Catinas via unanimous decision, R3
Peter Aerts def. Ewerton Teixeira via split decision, R4

Keijiro Maeda def. Jerome Le Banner via DQ (Le Banner left ring) R3, 3:00
After three rounds, the judges declared the bout a draw, sending the match into overtime. Le Banner and his corner vehemently disagreed with the decision. "JLB" walked out of the ring almost immediately after the scores had been read and walked back to his dressing room, leaving a shocked "Kyotaro" with a technical victory.

Gokhan Saki def. Freddy Kemayo via TKO (punches) R1, 1:30
