  1. Going into this card I thought it a shame that Tatsuya Kawajiri, Alistair Overeem and Gegard Mousasi were fighting in K-1 rules matches and would probably get beat by more experienced K-1 competition. But not only did all three win the upsets, but they were the best fights of the night. The only shame is that the wins don't go on their MMA records.

    The rest of the card was somewhat lackluster.
