On March 16, K-1 will be coming to Eastern Europe, as a handful of its star fighters compete in the K-1 East Europe MAX tournament held in scenic Vilnius, Lithuania.

The event will feature an eight-man elimination tournament with Latvia’s Jurig Boreiko, Germany’s Denis Schneidmiller and Lithuania’s very own Tadas Jonkus competing for a reserve spot in the K-1 MAX World Tournament finals.

In superfight action, current K-1 MAX champion Buakaw Por Pramuk will battle Russia’s Maxsim Grechkin, while K-1 HERO’s veteran Kestutis Smirnovas fights Valerijus Golubovskis under MMA rules for the Bushido Lithuania middleweight title.
