But now K-1 is in a strange position: On the one hand, any reasonable sports league would suspend Hari for his actions. On the other hand, Hari is now more famous than ever, and K-1 would like to cash in on that fame. So should K-1 do the right thing from a sporting perspective, or cash in on that fame?
That fight would be a big draw, but it would also call into question the integrity of the promotion -- Hari would basically be rewarded for his actions. My own view is that Hari should be suspended and shouldn't be fighting on New Year's Eve, but with K-1, money talks.
