Controversial heavyweight Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson arrived in Japan today for his role as a guest commentator for HDNet’s broadcast of FiELDS K-1 WGP 2008 Final.
The event takes place at the Yokohama Arena in Yokohama, Japan and is slated to air on HDNet tomorrow, Saturday December 6th, beginning at 3am ET.
The eight-man tournament’s opening round features Peter Aerts vs. Badr Hari, Errol Zimmerman vs. Ewerton Teixeria, Gokhan Saki vs. Ruslan Karaev, and Remy Bonjasky vs. Jerome LeBanner. Hong Man Choi vs. Ray Sefo and Paul Slowinski vs. Melvin Manhoef are also slated for the card.
K-1 uses standup techniques from a variety of disciplines, but does not involve ground fighting.
Slice has reportedly been in negotiations with K-1 for a future fight in Japan and may announce his signing during tomorrow’s broadcast.
