Badr Hari Due Back in Court on October 10th

Badr Hari

For Badr Hari the nightmare of his legal problems has still yet to really end. While Hari might be a free man for the time being, there is still an upcoming trial that looms ahead for him in the brutal beating of Koen Everink. Everink was beaten within an inch of his life, with a plate in his head now and limited use of his ankle, which was damaged so severely in a night club attack, which he has pointed out Badr Hari as his attacker.

Hari served some prison time already in the case, but was let out on bail earlier this year, which allowed for him to return to the ring where he has competed twice this year so far. According to De Telegraaf Hari is due back in court starting on October 10th where his fate will be decided once and for all.

LEGEND Fighting's Second Event Scheduled for November Featuring Cro Cop vs. Aleks Emelianenko

Cro Cop/Aleks

The first LEGEND Fighting event was a bit of a mixed bag, but a success in many regards as it featured a solid 72kg Kickboxing tournament on top of the now infamous battle between Badr Hari and Zabit Samedov, where Samedov was able to do the impossible and toppled Badr Hari. It also appealed with the freakshow factor by putting Aleksander Elemianenko up against Bob Sapp, with the local hero making short work of the sham of a fighter known as Bob Sapp.

The second LEGEND Fighting event is scheduled for November now and is set to feature the rematch that is almost ten years in the making between Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic against Aleksander Emelianenko in Russia. This will be contested under MMA rules, where Emelianenko is more comfortable and where Cro Cop has not ventured since his release from the UFC in October, 2011, save for the IGF New Year's Even event against professional wrestler/former sumo Wakakirin Shinichi.

Here's hoping that they once again feature some bigger Kickboxing bouts on this card as well, as the last event turned out to be quite entertaining.

Final Fight 07: Poturak to Face Leko in Retirement Bout

Poturak

A few days ago Dzevad Poturak announced that he would be retiring come this September at Final Fight 07 in Sarajevo, although there was no opponent chosen yet. That has changed today as we find out that Poturak's final opponent will be Stefan "Blitz" Leko. This is an interesting fight for both men as Poturak has undoubtedly had better results over the past few years, while Leko has fallen upon hard times, having a hot and cold career since 2005 or so.

This makes Leko a perfect last opponent for Poturak, as a win over Leko will help to put a good bookend on his career, but a loss to Leko will not be seen as any sort of disgrace, either, as Leko still shows flashes of brilliance when he is motivated.
