K-1 World GP Ends in Disqualification
Despite getting off to a great start, last night's K-1 World GP Finals ended in bizarre fashion, with Badr Hari getting disqualified for illegally taking Remy Bonjasky down and then attacking him while he was under the referee's care, finally stomping on his head before being shoved off by the ref. At first Hari looked like he'd just receive a yellow card, but with Bonjasky complaining of double-vision, the bout was stopped and Bonjasky declared the winner via disqualification.
Upon further review, the illegal blows don't look so bad. But that's easy for me to say since I didn't take them. Bonjasky's the guy who fought his way into the finals and was taking it to Hari for much of the first round, so you have to give him the benefit of the doubt as a tough bastard who would've continued if he could.
You hate to see it end that way, especially considering what a great show it was up until that point. If you're wondering how Kimbo Slice did in his commentating duties, you can check out the reply on HDNet tonight.
