The return of Ruslan Karaev!!

The return of no one else but the very popular Ruslan Karaev. Taken from liverkick.com

Look, there aren't many fighters out there that can take some time away from the ring and when they announce their return people get legitimately excited over. But then, there aren't many guys who are named Ruslan Karaev and are as exciting in the ring as he is. It's really difficult to explain the magnetism that Karaev possesses or why there are so many fans who are such huge Ruslan Karaev fans, but his return to the ring truly feels like a big deal.Ruslan Karaev cut his teeth on the K-1 circuit for years, being an undersized Heavyweight who still held his own against all of the greats. His most notable fights were his ones against Badr Hari, with one of Badr's few losses being to Karaev before they had a few dramatic rematches. Karaev was known to be a part of the Golden Glory stable, which was in part why he was away from the ring for so long, as he did indeed suffer a bad knee injury, but also had a falling out with Golden Glory which kept him away from competition for a while. Now, finally, someone has found him and convinced him to return to the ring. KOK, based out of Moldova, will house Ruslan Karaev for his return bout and it is something of a big win for them.

You can say what you want about this guy, but even with his flaws he is a great and entertaining fighter. I'm glad he is back. Hopefully this means that his name is cleared from that case of theft.

It is good news that Karaev can come back, because he is really entertaining. Good speed, and a really creative offensive mindset, something rarely seen in the top of the sport. I hope he can climb his way back to the top 20 perhaps, because the sport always needs the entertainers as much as the champions. And his fights almost alwys end in a K.O. (win or loose, somebody gets knocked out)

@JonnieSunshine Wow, who would have thought, Ruslan linked with a mafia? Still, one of my all-time favorites, great looking, great personality. So glad he is back. He should aim for the GG LHW division, lacks the power of a true HW.

The best K-1 community online!

The focus is on building a community that offers more to the users than any other K-1 website. The focus is also on that the community should be totally user driven, with the users as main writers of content. Who would for example write a better fight report than a fan who actually was at the fight? Or who could write a more interesting fighter profile than the fan who loves and really knows about a fighter? We believe that this approach will lead to that fansofk1.com has the most interesting K-1 information.
