It's Showtime 55 is tomorrow and it is a huge card. This week on Warman's Kickfighting Show we switched things up a bit and held a roundtable to discuss the results from the Yokkao Extreme card in Italy and then do a blow-by-blow on the It's Showtime 55 card that will hit the airwaves tomorrow afternoon at 3pm Eastern time on HDnet or at ShowtimeFights.com. Steven and myself are joined by our own Rian Scalia as well as Ryan Ventura as we run down the card and take a look at what the future might hold for Badr Hari.

As always, the show can be accessed on Steven's blog or via iTunes [search: LordGaul].

Before the main Part 2 portion of the card headlined by Badr Hari vs. Gokhan Saki kicks off, a stacked undercard, Part 1, will be taking place. Featuring six fights, including a title fight at 73kg and a match-up between two of kickboxing's most popular fighters, Tyrone Spong and Melvin Manhoef, the Part 1 portion of the card could be its own event.

We'll preview all six fights on Part 1 of the card. The fights will be broken down and an outcome will be predicted. Click "Read More" to see the previews and predictions of all six fights.

The biggest kickboxing event since the 2010 K-1 World Grand Prix is happening on Saturday. Headlined by a clash of elite heavyweights that pits Gokhan Saki against Badr Hari, the rest of the fight card is just as good, featuring 12 great fights.

The card is split into two portions, Part 1 and Part 2. Part 1 is the undercard, which will be on It's Showtime's live stream and the Fight Network in Canada. It will be aired in the US on HDNet on February 3. Part 2 is the main card featuring Badr Hari vs. Gokhan Saki and will be aired live on all three platforms; It's Showtime's live stream, Fight Network in Canada and HDNet in the US.

This is an overview of the full fight card for fans or casual viewers interested in tuning in but not quite sure who's fighting. Once again, it's a stacked card and any fan of combat sports should be tuning in on Saturday. It's during the late morning/afternoon so it won't get in the way of UFC on Fox. You'll have a whole day of combat sports. Full fight card below.

Part 1:

-70kg: Henri van Opstal vs. Hafid el Boustati

-70kg: Andy Ristie vs. Hinata Watanabe

-95kg: Sahak Parparyan vs. Mourad Bouzidi

Heavyweight: Ricardo van den Bos vs. Ben Edwards

The showdown between Badr Hari and Gokhan Saki is just two days away now, with things reaching a critical mass for both fighters. At this point both men are done training and are simply wading through the final preparations before the big fight. In an interesting interview with Fighters Only, Gokhan Saki interrupted his training earlier in the week to discuss the upcoming bout with Badr Hari as well as a bunch of other issues. One of the big topics was K-1, and he says that he knows "many things" about K-1, but that he can't talk about them right now. This goes along with a lot of the rumblings we've been hearing behind the scenes.

When asked about MMA and if he is interested, his answer is simply, "Yes, of course, I'm a fighter, you know?" Saki mentioned maybe MMA, maybe Boxing, that he has been training in both, but that his "thing is K-1" and that is his main focus for right now. [source]

Big news coming from the Netherlands as Simon Rutz has been making the media rounds to promote the huge It's Showtime 55 event taking place in Leeuwarden. Leeuwarden was an interesting choice, as it was obviously not It's Showtime's home base when compared to Amsterdam. Apparently Rutz is upset with the recent events within his home country that revolve around the BIBOB law. BIBOB, for those unaware, is a law where local officials are able to require local businesspeople to acquire  a license through them after going through a background check to ensure that there are no criminal elements within the organization. For It's Showtime we've seen this law rear its ugly head in Amsterdam, canceling the December event on short notice due to BIBOB restrictions.
