Badr Hari Discusses K-1 DQ Loss, Blames Emotions

Badr Hari discusses his DQ loss in K-1 – Watch more free videos

Badr Hari doesn’t seem too concerned about his disqualification loss in the finals of this weekend’s K-1 World GP.  In case you missed it, Hari took Remy Bonjasky down, which is already illegal in K-1, but then he decided that as long as he was down there he might as well punch him a couple of times and then stomp on his face.  When the interviewer here points out to him that this is “prohibited,” Hari responds: “Yeah, but cycling on the pavement is prohibited too.”

Seriously?  That’s his response to illegally attacking an opponent who was under the referee’s care?  Apparently Hari didn’t feel that his actions in the fight made him unlikeable enough.  No, better go ahead and follow that up with a dismissive statement that reveals your amoral thought process to the world, just to be sure.

The argument that I absolutely don’t buy in this case is that he let his emotions get the better of him because Bonjasky didn’t come to fight.  First of all, when Bonjasky dropped him in the first, that seemed an awful lot like fighting.  Second, if you get mad in a kickboxing match, why not kick or punch the other guy in the head, torso, or leg region while you’re both standing?  It’s an effective expression of anger, and it’s legal!

Then again, if you fight only within the scope of the rules, how is everyone supposed to know what an asshole you are?

why don't you say that mano to mano white trash?
kalows- January 27, 2009 at 8:01 pm
badr is just a solid example of muslim trash- that explain it all
Blaphtome- December 17, 2008 at 10:32 am
Hari would crush Kimbo, and anyone who thinks otherwise is likely to be either black or a wigger. That is all.

Those subtitles were wrong.

What he really said was: "I have nothing to apologize about. He is an infidel and Mohammed tells us that we can do with them what we want. I wouldnt treat cattle that way but someone whose very presence on this earth is a direct insult to Allah Baba is less than cattle. Besides that, Bojansky sounds jewish so I'm halfway to getting those 72 hairy one eyebrowed virgins (no, not the isreali one eyebrowed virgins but the arab one eyebrowed virgins."

Bonjaski dropped Hari with ONE Punch and was rocking him with Leg Kicks...Badr was tired and hurt and so he decided to take the dirty way out.

Remi is now THREE time K1 champ!!!...he is an incredible talent and most deserving of the K1 Title after years of trying to reclaim his title from the monster Semi Shilt.

P.S "Dirty" Hari is well known for his poor sportsmanship and nasty tactics.. just the other day he pushed a nun down the stairs, stole a blindmans seeing eye dog and stole a retards icecream. He is one BAD[r] Mother.

@ geoff

Petruzelli isn't an amateur striker. He even competed in K1?

But ofcourse, Hari's striking is on another level. But can you say... takedown? Hari only weighed in at 210 pounds I believe...
vrane- December 8, 2008 at 11:30 pm
He's way too cocky. I don't like him at all. He should just disapear or something.
geoff- December 8, 2008 at 10:51 pm
im sorry, but im pretty sure kimbo would lose to hari. i mean he got knocked down by a jab from an amateur striker; hari is quite a step up from that.
hmmm- December 8, 2008 at 10:43 pm
News Flash, Hari is a fighter and a pretty awesome one at that, most of the worlds best fighters are assholes, exception to Fedor, look at bj penn the guys slapped people in bjj tournaments for less. Hari made a dumb decision but Remy is just a giant douche f%&k who needs his vag slayed. I think Hari's a badass, should start calling him Dirty Hari
MaskedMan- December 8, 2008 at 9:11 pm
Badr Hari is a possessed man.Kimbo vs Hari may be become a good match!
Clue-by-Four- December 8, 2008 at 9:01 pm
This just in...

Badr Hari is still a steaming pile of shit.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

What a turd. I love how he tries to justify his temper tantrum by saying that "the fans enjoyed the fights", as if to say he's the peoples champ, and he fucked up that fight as a token of appreciation toward us...
So he shits on our heads and wants us to say thanks for the hat?

I used to like him, in fact I didn't even care that he got DQed. It wasn't until he called us all idiots by expecting us to believe that crock of shit that came out of his mouth that I decided he's an arrogant turd who thinks we're all retarded... I'd have a ton more respect for him if he just said "I just can't stand that Pussy, I'll hurt him any way I possibly can" rather than lying and saying he did it to give us a show. Be a man.
Frank- December 8, 2008 at 7:30 pm
Hari's brand of sportsmanship is certainly on the Machiavellian side. "It's only illegal if you get caught." Of course, his transgression was just plain dumb. Nobody could ignore that and he deserved the DQ. Sometimes, though, breaking the rules is effective. Years ago, I competed in a karate tournament where the rules specifically prohibited any direct hand strike to the face. Damn if my first opponent didn't punch me square on the jaw as soon as the ref said go. He only got a point deducted and I got my bell rung so bad I was dead on my feet. In a perfect world everybody plays fair and follows the rules, but that ain't the real world.
geoff- December 8, 2008 at 5:34 pm
i just really hope the DQ makes him learn his lesson
geoff- December 8, 2008 at 5:26 pm
the thing is...yea maybe remy could have continued (but none of us will never know), but if hari didnt get DQ'd...he most likely would do that cheap shit again.

oh and judging by his comment when asked if he'll do it again saying, "i dont know"
yea id say theres a chance he'll be an asshole in future fights..
Sodak- December 8, 2008 at 4:28 pm
cool i've been waiting to hear what he had to say before pasing judgement but yeah its official hes a dumb ass and a piece of shit. i see his point remy could of kept going but by DQing yourself with intentional illegal strikes you become the one whos not coming to fight, and we the fans get screwed.
fuckin tuff- December 8, 2008 at 4:28 pm
this shit was gay. the whole freakin tourney war exciting as hell! then w/a brainfart from badr, he fucks the whole thing up! i was fuckin pissed cuz we now have a semi-paper champ. i believe remi could of won the fight given that his fighting did change from the previous years and was more aggressive than normal. but even though, i was bitchin a little about remy not continuing but then again, i never did get stomped on the temple before so who am i to judge. fucking badr, why the hell did you have to fuck everything up?
Kissenger- December 8, 2008 at 4:10 pm
Wow! Did you guys bitching about Hari actually see the fight?

Yes, what he did was disrespectful and stupid (it pretty much ruined the show's climax), but he did NO actual damage to Remy. Remy could have fought on if he wanted but he didn't want to. He wanted to be paper champ. I liked Remy before this fight. I don't like him anymore. What a pussy. I hope Badr botty-smashes Kimbo, then Chill Dawgs Remy.
Anonymous- December 8, 2008 at 4:07 pm
its easy to say that when your not the one getting stomped in the face
dogmaticdiscordian- December 8, 2008 at 4:02 pm
I would have got away with it too if wasn't for you meddling emotions!
Pfff- December 8, 2008 at 3:52 pm
Being a little over-sensitive aren't we?

Badr Hari didn't sleep with your girlfriend for crying out loud.

I loved the interview. I wish more people took life less seriously. Badr Hari fought like a man possessed. I thoroughly enjoyed the tournament, DQ and all.

Getting all butt-hurt about his brain-snap and his interview (which was pretty entertaining imo) is just a little whiny, isn't it?
B- December 8, 2008 at 3:04 pm
Haha Kimbo yeah right. Also even though its justified Bonjasky was kind of a bitch there.
JMart- December 8, 2008 at 3:00 pm

Poor Bonjasky can't get a break. He also fought Bob Sapp, who was DQ'd after he did similar things like Hari did to him.

For once, I'd like to see Kimbo light up Hari like a Christmas tree.

/First, beotches
B- December 8, 2008 at 2:57 pm
Badr is still awesome for the same reason that Tyson was awesome. What are you going to do? It happened and it was still an exciting event even with the iffy (imo) reffing and judging early on.
