Remy Bonjasky wins K-1 World GP title

Remy Bonjasky is the champion of the K-1 World GP 2008, an event held at the Yokohama Arena, in Yokohama, Japan and this Saturday morning, Brasília time. The Dutchman won his third title in the tournament by beating Jerrome Le Banner in the quarterfinals, Gokhan Saki in the semis, and won the belt by defeating Badr Hari after a huge controversy. Hari landed a stomp on Bonjasky when he was on the ground, who claimed he was unable to continue in the fight, which led to the Moroccan's disqualification.

The only Brazilian representative in the tournament, Ewerton Teixeira was eliminated in the quarter-finals by Errol Zimmerman.
