Global FC 3 Immediately Updates Tournament: Badr Hari, Graham, Oborotov and Leko

GFC

Now that is some quick turnaround. Last night at about 1:30am I received a press release announcing Global FC 3, then just hours later they announced their full line-up for their tournament. It turns out that Peter Aerts is not participating in the tournament, instead he will be featured on the card, as will American Dewey Cooper. So the question arises of who is in this tournament?

Right now the names are Badr Hari, Peter Graham, Arnold Oborotov and Stefan Leko. Definitely an eclectic mix here, with Peter Graham fighting MMA of late in Bellator, Oborotov has been relatively quiet after getting his hype train derailed by Jarrell Miller and Andrei Stoica and Stefan Leko is, well, Stefan Leko. Leko's career has had a few interesting twists and turns, but it is safe to say that Stefan Leko's time at the top has come and gone.

Badr Hari, Peter Aerts and Peter Graham Participating in Global FC 3 on May 29th

Badr Hari

This kind of came out of nowhere and is a bit strange.

On May 29th in Dubai an event is happening, called Global FC 3, which will feature a one night, four man Kickboxing tournament. The winner of the tournament will take home 1 million UAE dirhams (approximately $272,000 USD). The participants thus far are strange, to say the least. Announced for the card are Badr Hari, Peter Graham and Peter Aerts. The other big name announced via a press release was ring announcer Michael Buffer.

When we know more about this we will be sure to report on it.

Badr Hari vs. Ismael Londt Cancelled

Badr Hari

In what might be the least shocking bit of news to Kickboxing fans, the fight in May between Badr Hari and Ismael Londt has been cancelled. This confirms reports that we've been hearing for at least the past few weeks that the Gunyar brothers, who were promoting the fight, were having issues acquiring a license to promote an event in Eindhoven (which shares Amsterdam's laws in this case). This, of course, comes as zero shock if you've been following Dutch Kickboxing.

There have been incredibly heavy restrictions set on Kickboxing events in Amsterdam and neighboring cities thanks to a law called BIBOB that is targeted at organized crime. The school of thought was that Kickboxing events held within the city would always pander to certain "VIPs" from the world of organized crime, thus making them meeting places for criminals. The city of Amsterdam wanted to clean up their reputation and saw this as a natural way to do so.

It didn't matter how legitimate of a business the Gunyars were going to run, trying to promote a convicted criminal with known ties to organized crime in an event in Amsterdam was never, ever going to work. According to Badr Hari's Facebook page, "May 29th in Dubai" seems to be his next stop.
