K-1's Dynamite!!! events often feature fights that pit MMA fighters against K-1 fighters in either discipline, often with expected results. However, Dynamite!!! 2008 resulted in a clean sweep for MMA, with Alistar Overeem's huge upset over Badr Hari, Tatsuya Kawajiri and Gegard Mousasi taking wins over fading Japanese kickboxing legends Kozo Takeda and Musashi, respectively, and Minowaman's quick win over Errol Zimmerman. The night also held three other bouts featuring fighters who have made a name for themselves in kickboxing and MMA, with Melvin Manhoef battling Mark Hunt, Mirko Crocop taking on Hong-man Choi and Semmy Schilt facing Mighty Mo, all under MMA rules.
