Description

Chalid "The Fist" Arrab (born May 28, 1975) is a German kickboxer and mixed martial artist. He trains at Team Golden Glory in Amsterdam under famous Dutch trainer Cor Hemmers.

Chalid's Amateur boxing record of 34 Wins and 31 KOs out of 37 bouts has earned him the nickname "Die Faust". The Fist in german.

Career

On April 29, 2006 Chalid Arrab entered the K-1 World GP 2006 in Las Vegas as a heavy underdog. Just one week before the fight he was involved in serious car crash in Germany. Luckily Chalid walked away unharmed.

In the quarterfinals Arrab took on a former wrestler, Sean O'Haire. Arrab stepped in quickly firing with series of uppercuts and knocking out the American in first round.

In the semifinals he met Carter Williams. Midway through the second round Williams dropped Arrab with a right knee and Chalid ended up losing the fight with a split decision. Under K-1's substitution rule Williams could not continue due a broken nose and shin injury suffered in his fight with Chalid and the fortunate German was sent back in to face Gary Goodridge in the GP tournamnet final.

In the first round Goodridge threw in a quick left hook to score an early knock down. Heading into the third round, Die Faust was trailing badly on all cards due the two downs. The only thing that could possibly win it for Arrab was a KO. Midway through the third round he caught Goodridge with a right hook to the jaw and dropped him. "The Fist" capped his comeback in dramatic fashion and became the K-1 World GP 2006 USA Champion.

On September 30, 2006 at K-1 World Grand Prix 2006 Final Eliminations at Osaka, Japan Chalid Arrab earned himself a unanimous decision win over Japanese fighter Musashi and qualified for his first ever appearance at K-1 World Grand Prix 2006 Finals.

On December 2, 2006 at K-1 World GP quarterfinals Chalid met 4 times K-1 World Champion Ernesto Hoost and lost by unanimous decision.

He is married to Dutch actress Jorinde Moll.

Chalid was scheduled to fight on August 11 in Las Vegas, against Mighty Mo. However Chalid was unable to secure a visa in time, and was replaced by Stefan "Blitz" Leko

This guy is really enigma for me, he drives a Lamborghini, has tons of money and you know what he said? That he fighting in K-1 is a hobby for him! Still have to figure that one out.. :)

I guess driving the Lamborghini must be a serious occupation then :-)

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.
