I have the 2010 HW GP on tape, and watch the 4 1/2 hours worth of combat on a regular basis.. Overeem v Spong, and Saki v Ghita were great matchups.. I had a K1 card that was on New Years Day, 2005 that I deleted, and wish I held onto.. My interest is peaking in world class striking.. This thread couldn't have come at a better time.
Hoost, Aerts and Semmy are pretty much locked in as the top 3, just depends on who you prefer really. From there you have guys like Bonjasky, Hug, Le Banner, Bernardo, Hari etc.

Also, check out the '99 GP if you haven't, best Grand Prix in my opinion, it's all on youtube.
