Francisco Filho made his proffessional fighting debut at the K-1 Dreams tournament against the legendary Kyokushin and Seido Kaikan Fighter Andy Hug. This was their second encounter the first being at the 1991 Kyokushin world tournament that resulted in a KO victory for Filho. The second fight was also won by Filho quickly earning the Brazilian a large fan base in the K-1 world as well as making him one of the then top contenders for the K-1 heavy weight championship title. Filho has since held championship titles in both K-1 as well as in IKO-Kyokushin Kaikan.

I think that his age is the deciding factor his his absense from K-1, but you can often see him commentating or standing in Glaubes corner...

Anyway another legendary K-1 fighter.

I realy liked his fighting style. He participated in the 100 man fighting competition (kumite) and was still standing after having fought 100 men!!!
Incredible.
OSU!

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.
