If this is right, then Hari - Bonjasky is certainly a loaded fight! It's gonna be war. Maybe FEG matched them up because It's Showtime already got Schilt - Hari. But now we wait to see if this source is correct.
Schilt versus Aerts.. wasn't really waiting to this one again. Schilt would love a rematch ofcourse. Let's hope Aerts' strategy will work once again. Saki - Manhoef is very cool. Too bad Spong's opponent is still unclear.

nothing on k-1 official website...just participating fighters, no match-ups

I received the info from a German, who got it from the German K1 site. However it is not on K-1.co.jp, so thats a bit strange. I havent got any experience with this, does someone know how K1 introduces the fights (video, website, conference)?

If this is correct I'm absolutely stoked. Was hoping they wouldn't pair up Spong and Karaev as I like them both too much. Teixeira though is from my biased point of view a great matchup for Karaev. Schilt vs Aerts is actually the least exciting matchup for me; but I would still love to see it :)

Bojasky vs Hari would be so hardcore - once and for all settling the 'score'...

Schilt vs. Aerts isn't very "thrilling" for me either. Fair enough, maybe Schilt wants revenge or a rematch but i don't know, it's not like they haven't fought enough times already.

If this is the way that the matchups are gonna be like il be verry disapionted. Aerts vs Sem is done, re done and done again and again and again, not sure i wanna se that fight one more time,, atleast not as an superfight.... Badr vs Remy is too soon IMO, id rather see that fight later this year. I would have preferd to see Remy vs Schilt and Aerts vs Badr re-match..

I could think of a lot better match-ups than Aerts vs. Schilt at this point. Bonjasky would be the logical choise, but also Feitosa, LeBanner, Sefo, Slowinsky, Hong-Man Choi... Of course if you want someone to actually beat Schilt it doesn't make sense with much other opponents than Aerts, but you have to accept that vs. Schilt you can't always expect the opponent to beat him.

Hmm, I think the match ups are great. Of course remy vs badr is a bit early, but it is very populair and otherwise people will wait for badr vs semmy (not from K1).
Aerts vs Schilt is not the best, but again what is more exciting seeing Sefo get KO again or a emotional fight with Peter? And as far as I know Feitosa, Bonjasky and LeBanner already fought Schilt twice.

Wow Semmy Schilt is a machine man!

Line up is not true. I think source is http://www.k-1sport.de/en/databas e/show_tournament.php?id=688, but is is only participating fighters (not paring).

Real Rumors
JLB vs Teixeira
4-man tournament Karaev, Saki, Manhoef, Chalid Arrab
Hari vs TBA
Aerts vs TBA
Spong vs TBA
Schilt vs TBA

Yes that was the source.
Too bad, but I still think they will fight like that.
And Spong vs Karaev.
