K1 fighter Leko signs with Pride

From CroCop page -

Croatian kickboxer Stefan Leko has signed a two year deal with Pride. He apparently rejected a K1 contract after he was left out of the GP and signed the deal with Pride. His first fight should on the April 20 card.

I thought Leko was German.

He is Croatian. K-1 made him say he was German because they already had a popular Croatian and wanted to make it more popular in Germany.

He is an Croatian who lives in Germany.

I hope they bring him in like they brought in Mirko. A few modified MMA fights before thowing him to the lions.
