Every fight from the 2009 K-1 World Grand Prix

K-1 World Grand Prix 2009 Final was a martial arts event held by the K-1 on Saturday, December 5, 2009, at the Yokohama Arena in Yokohama, Japan. It was the 17th K-1 World GP Final, the culmination of a year full of regional elimination tournaments. All fights followed K-1’s classic tournament format and were conducted under K-1 Rules, three rounds of three minutes each, with a possible tiebreaker.

Michael Buffer was the ring announcer for the night.

The matchups were held the day proceeding the World Grand Prix Final 16. All fighters drew a ball from a box with numbers on them and chose their spots in order from who drew ball number 1 to number 8. Ruslan Karaev who was first up chose spot number 1. Badr Hari was up next and decided to face Karaev for the third time. Errol Zimmerman was next and chose the 7th spot. Remy Bonjasky had the choice of fighting Zimmerman or picking another spot. Remy was tempted to take the 3rd spot so as to be given the chance to fight Badr in the semi-finals but was challenged by Zimmerman and Remy accepted. Jerome Lebanner decided to walk straight into the 5th spot. Semmy Schilt opted for the 4th match with Jerome. The last two finalists Ewerton Teixeira and Alistair Overeem will meet in the second quarter-final match.

On November 28, it was announced that Sergei Kharitonov would be replacing Chalid Arrab to face Daniel Ghita in the second reserve bout.
