Fight Order for Final 16: Hari v. Samedov to Main Event

K-1 posted the fight card order for the Final 16. Weird choice for a main event, as Hari v. Samedov is one of the least competative fights on the card, but it really shows just how much stock K-1 officials have in Hari.

    This also shows how little faith they have in Bonjasky.

    GREAT MOVE by K-1
    well, its evident Who is the best Striker in the planet
    the real K-1 champion is Badr Hari
    and Samedov is underestimated a little bit

    I agree that Samedov is underestimated a bit, but Hari is just a really bad match-up for him. Samedov is an undersized HW with no power who works a strong point game for his wins. I think that works well against a lot of people, and there are a lot of guys in the Final 16 I think he would have a shot against. But that’s not the recipe to defeat Hari, and K-1 knows it – this is last to give Hari a highlight reel KO to end the show. Which, you are right, is a smart move to keep interest high for the Final 8.
