Never in its extraordinary 10-year history has K-1 seen a draw filled with both depth and combatants from such a wide array of disciplines and experiences as it did during in its 2002 K-1 World Grand Prix Finals. From a three-time champion to veteran
fixtures in the tournament circuit, to a mixed martial arts powerhouse to a former professional football player and wrester, this end of the year showdown had it all.
2001 champion Mark Hunt returns to defend his crown, one that he seized a year prior as a little known kickboxer and shocked the Japanese world in doing so. Standing in his way of repeat success, though, is nothing less than a brigade of experience and sheer power. Peter Aerts and Ernesto Hoost, the most decorated fighters in the history of the sport, each shoot for a record fourth title while K-1 veterans Ray Sefo and Jerome LeBanner aim for their first. And rest assured that a loud impression will be made when 350-pound former NFL lineman and professional wrestler Bob Sapp attempts to become the first American to capture the most prestigious possession in the martial arts.
