He's a huge MMA fanboy but something in the tone of his delivery tells me that K1 is nearest and dearest to his heart).
I love Schiavello. Goes a bit overboard but he is a good commentator imo. I'd agree he seems to love K-1 more. Just look at the way he reacted to Badr Hari stopping Overeem in the GP last year. He looked like he'd just won himself.

One of my favourite quotes of his is when someone gets KO'ed. He just repeatedly shouts 'AND IT'S GOODNIGHT IRENE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!'
