As you are most likely already aware, the K-1 WGP Finale is going down this Friday in Zagreb, Croatia. Earlier today the press conference for the event took place, with most of the emphasis put on the bigger names in the tournament: Badr Hari, Hesdy Gerges, and Mirko Cro Cop. Also making an appearance was the man with the greatest grey hair in the world- Michael Buffer (He's got a pretty decent voice too).
The most interesting part of the conference for me was the way Badr Hari described his mind-set going into the WGP as opposed to years prior. He referred to fighting Cro Cop in his home country as an "honor," and repeatedly harped on the mistakes of his "younger" self. While I think it's a little early to be calling Hari a changed man by any stretch of the imagination, it sounds as though his stint in prison forced him to restructure his outlook on life. But then again, that may just be me.
