Yodsanklai Fairtex

Emelianenko Fedor

Mirko CroCop

Peter Aerts

Naoki Ishikawa

Daisuke Nakamura

Someone else (Mail FEG)

I advise everyone to vote for Yodsaenklai Fairtex.  He is the only elite 70kg (154) fighter that K-1 MAX do not currently have and even if they don't have him fight Masato, which they won't, at least they will know he has a following.  It could lead to him beign signed in the future as he is obviously still on their radar. 

for reference, anyone reading this it's a moral imperative that you vote for Yod

 LOL....moral imperative....I love it.


FYI Yod is 10 names below DJ.taiki.  He's also the longest entry on the list besides "other-mail FEG"

seriously who should I vote for ? I'd love to see him against Musashi but most likely it will be Kid or Kawajiri? I wish we can see him revenge his losses to Sauwer (that might be GOOD) but then again if he wins the tourney this year Masato's last fight will be against whoever the 2009 MAX champ is at Dynamite on NYE

who are you guys voting for?

wait a second, why isnt Sauwer on that list? now I REALLLLLY hope Andy wins the 2009 Max tournament this year

um, GEVORG?? lol @ that list

Probably because he will be training/competing in that tournament around the time of this bout.

Kraus, Buakow, and Zambidis aren't on there as well.  For some reason Kohi is.

 Vote for Yodsanklai.

the Japanese will bombard the thing anyway, so at least let them know people want to see Yod in there.

Petroysan and Souwer and anyone else in the Final 8 are not listed as they are already fighting that night in the GP.


Yodsanklai Fairtex vs. Silver Wolf = EPIC

I'd like to see another Buakaw fight personally.

 well that fight may happen anyway on NYE.

oh thats right about the Sauwer thing hes fighting the same night haha my bad

 lol @ Fedor and Aerts.

Is this K-1 rules, I assume? Why is almost everyone on the list an MMA fighter?

I vote Gomi.


Yod tears the pretty boy a new a-hole.

more people should be voting
