What's going on with it this year? Is it happening? I can't seem to find any info online.

There was some talk awhile back that they were gonna revamp the GP and hold it every second year to make it a bigger deal. Not sure if that's what the new ownership has decided or not.

The Max GP starts in a few weeks.

The final 16 is supposed to take place in October, but right now there's no card or anything set in place to my knowledge. It was supposed to have Daniel Ghita vs. Badr Hari, but that fight was cancelled (I'm not sure if Hari was injured, or whether both guys were pulled because they're being put in the final 16).

Shorter version: it's happening, just nobody knows when, or what fights yet.

I think that's worded a little confusingly.

Ghita vs Badr Hari was supposed to take place in some European promotion. But then they both pulled out because they are going to be in the Final 16 in October. Ghita even talked about the Final 16.

I haven't really heard anything since then but I guess we'll see. Supposedly the K-1 was bought by Master Ishii (founder of K-1) and some Chinese company or something (while K-1 Max and K-1 Koshien and DREAM were retained by FEG).

Oh, my bad. I was under the impression Ghita vs. Hari was gonna be a GP Superfight or something.

Who would want to fight for K-1 given their poor track record for paying their fighters? Did the issues with K-1 not paying the GG fighters ever get resolved, or is GG still thinking of promoting their own fights in tiny venues?
