Rumors continue to fly regarding the K-1 Grand Prix Final 16 on September 26. Latest rumors indicate that Alistair Overeem may have turned down the proposed fight with Peter Aerts and will not be participating in the Grand Prix. Instead, Aerts will face Junichi Sawayashiki.
In addition, two other fights have been discussed: Tyrone Spong v. Glaube Feitosa and Paul Slowinski v. Takumi Sato, with the winners of these two fights moving on to the reserve fight at the final 8. Readers of K-1 Legend will note that last week we mentioned Catalin Morosanu v. Taiei Kin for a reserve spot instead. We also reported that Slowinski had to drop out of an event this weekend due to injury, and that this injury would keep him out of action for a few months, so rumors of Slowinski v. Sato may be premature.
All of this Final 16 confusion will be cleared up tomorrow, as K-1 will officially announce the final card:
In an unprecedented move for K-1 the line-up for the FieLDS K-1 GRAND PRIX IN SEOUL -FINAL 16- to be held in Seoul, Korea in the Olympic Gymnasium on September 26 will be simultaneously announced around the globe on Septmeber 21 from 3:00 P.M.(Tokyo, JAPAN GMT +9:00)
