K-1 World Grand Prix champion, Semmy Schilt in talks with the UFC

Current K-1 World Grand Prix champion, Semmy Schilt looks is in talks with the UFC about rejoining the heavyweight division. Schilt was involved in an elaborate hoax last week claiming the K-1 title was stolen, Japanese officials didn’t appreciate the hoax, and are threatening to exclude him from this years tournament.

Schilt’s management, speaking to MixFight.nl, said::

“Schilt was sorry if someone was concerned about the belt gone missing and apologized on twitter. They are not happy with the statement made by the K1 and emphasize that they have the utmost respect for the belt and the fans. However, they still thought it was pretty damn funny.”

“Schilt has fought MMA in the past and says that he will be able to defeat Brock Lesnar. Talks with Dana White have already started and a 3 fight contract is a possibility.”
