**ALSO Check this out:

One of the best and most attractive kickboxing fighters in the world and by far the biggest global kickboxing star, Badr Hari, will fight at the K-1 WGP Final to be held in Zagreb on March 15.

This sensational news that will give a whole new dimension to the Zagreb combat spectacle was exclusively revealed to Fight Site by the main producer of the event and head of Fight Channel, Orsat Zovko.

The Moroccan will enter the Grand Prix quarterfinal as the substitute for Ben Edwards. This also means that we will see Hari in the first fight against Azerbaijani Zabit Samedov and that he will face the winner of the Londt-Gerges bout if he goes through to the semis. Hari and Samedov have already battled each other before. At the K-1 WGP Final 16 in 2009, Hari knocked out Samedov after only 2 minutes and 15 seconds of the first round.

There is no need to emphasize what the arrival of a star of this caliber means for the whole tournament. In his professional career, Hari had 111 fights with an incredible score of 100 wins and only 11 losses. Even more impressive is his knockout statistics: 88% of his wins came by "putting the other guy to sleep." It was this attractive and uncompromising style that won him millions of fans and an army of followers all over the world.

It's hard to count all the great names Hari defeated in his rich career, but his biggest wins certainly came against quadruple K-1 WGP winner Semmy Schilt, triple K-1 WGP winner Peter Aerts, K-1, Dream and Strikeforce champion Alistair Overeem, as well as the likes of Sefo, Feitosa, Karaev, Ignashov, Saki, Leko, Zimmerman, Akhramenko, Slowinski and Graham
