With Badr Hari obviously in jail and not able to fight at the K-1 WGP Final 16 on October 14 in Tokyo, Japan, a replacement has been sought and found.
K-1 veteran Singh "Heart" Jaideep replaces Hari in the field of 16. Jaideep has fought in the past in K-1 seven times, holding a record of 5-2 in the organization with losses coming to Ewerton Teixeira and Gokhan Saki.
Since he last fought in K-1, he did lose a terrible decision to Xhavit Bajrami back in July of 2011. Later that year though, he ran through the RISE Heavyweight Tournament, stopping all three of his opponents in the first round.
