Grand Prix '95 1st Round
Kirkwood "Fire" Walker vs. Peter Aerts
Sam Greco vs. Vjatcheslav Soukhanov
John Kleijn vs. Sergio Augusto Machado. Kleijn put Machado down twice within 30 seconds.
Ernesto Hoost vs. Hubert Numrich. Numrich seems to be a tough guy, but he had no defense for Hoost's low kicks and Hoost is also too quick for him.
Andy Hug vs. Mike Bernardo. Best match on the show. Hug put Bernardo down toward the end of the first round and put the heat on him, but he couldn't connect with a big blow to finish him off. Bernardo battled back, and wound up having a huge third round. The difference in the fight was when Bernardo went in for the kill, he was able to get a 2nd knockdown and then he got even more aggresive throwing punch after punch with great power and speed at his groggy opponent.
Patrick Smith vs. Stan The Man. Smith is not that good, but his fights are fun to watch because he takes a lot of chances and isn't very good at preventing his opponents from connecting with heavy blows. Stan actually knocked him down with a big left hook two seconds into the fight. Either Smith suffered a few legit injuries in this match or he was selling as an excuse to take a dive. I don't see why Stan couldn't beat him without any help, but all the knockdowns in this match were at least somewhat questionable.
Nokveed Devy vs. Jerome Le Banner. This was the most surprising match. Le Banner is way bigger and stronger, but somehow Devy didn't succumb to his power like most everyone else. Devy hung in there due to his defense and quickness. He wasn't just trying to hang in there though, he would stand toe to toe with Le Banner and answer his heavy blows. Devy even gave Le Banner a bloody nose.
Masaaki Satake vs. Kimo. Kimo had no technique and either didn't know the rules or just didn't care about them. Satake isn't the guy you want to try to rough up though. It was a pretty sad performance by Satake when you consider it took him almost two whole rounds to beat a guy that was totally out of his element and didn't know what he was doing. Kimo is a tough guy, but on this day he was mainly an embarrassment.

Jerome Le Banner vs. Masaaki Satake. Satake did a good job in defense and counter punching. He was fighting one of his best fights, but one big Le Banner punch and it was over.
Mike Bernardo vs. Stan The Man. Stan's strategy was to stick and move so he woudln't be caught in front of Bernardo, where he'd be prone to Bernardo's punches. Even though Stan is much quicker, since he's pretty short it's hard for him to pull this off because he has to get inside for his strikes to land with optimum force, then get right back out before Bernardo can hit him. Bernardo became the aggressor after putting Stan down with a high kick. Stan was doing a pretty good job of hitting him as he was coming in, but Bernardo eventually caught him with a left high kick and that was it.
Ernesto Hoost vs. John Kleijn. Kleijn threw a looping left hook and Hoost just came inside of it with a right to the side of the jaw for the KO.
Peter Aerts vs. Toshiyuki Atokawa
K-3 Match: Yoshihisa Tagami vs. Akbar Talei
K-1 Match: Andy Hug vs. Peter Kramer. Kramer hitting his head hard on the canvas may have caused the KO rather than Hug's blow, which wasn't clean.
Jerome Le Banner vs. Mike Bernardo. Both of these guys want to stand toe to toe and beat their opponent with their punching power. Le Banner got a bloody nose again, but he still won because he has more kicking skill than Bernardo.
Peter Aerts vs. Ernesto Hoost. It's too bad this wasn't the final because these were the two best fighters, and this was one of the closest K-1 fights I've ever seen. It's great watching these guys fight because both are capable of doing damage from any position, and it takes this kind of matchup to really bring that out because, for the most part, they have their way with the rest of their opposition. Hoost was cut from an Aerts high kick. I thought Aerts won two of the three rounds, but one judge had it for each and the other had it a tie, so it went overtime.
Final: Jerome Le Banner vs. Peter Aerts. Le Banner didn't seem to have anything left. Aerts was beating him to the punch. He opened the cut on Le Banner's nose up right away.
