K-1 MAX FINAL8 Takes Shape! HINATA Returns

Four new fights were announced for K-1 MAX FINAL8 at a press conference today. In a GP reserve fight, Yoshihiro Sato will be taking on Joeri Mes. In the other reserve fight, Yasuhiro Kido will look to get his second straight victory since his awful Japan GP as he takes on Leroy Kaestner, who lost to Andy Souwer in the FINAL16. HINATA finally returns to take on The Contender Asia and FINAL16 participant Dzhabar ”Chengiskhan” Askerov. In an opening fight, Go Yokoyama will battle Korean Jae Gil Noh.

Update: The winners of the reserve fights will fight in the reserve fight in the finals in October.

    Awesome to see Hinata return. He took it to Kido in the Japan Tournament. I bet we’ll see him in the World MAX soon.
