The K-1 World Grand Prix 2013 is only days away as a new heavyweight champion will be crowned.
In addition to the tournament, five other fights are planned. Two of those are still in need of opponents.
One of the major names in the tournament is Mirko Filipovi?, who returned to kickboxing last year. He won his three return fights, with two going to a decision. For 11 years, he spent a lengthy part of his career for PRIDE and the UFC. He returned to MMA in December with a submission win over Shinichi Suzukawa for Inoki Bom-Ba-Ye.
The event is this Friday, March 15, and comes from Croatia. It starts at 3 p.m. ET and will be streamed online.
