Live streaming from Thailand can be a pain in the ass, i just don´t get why don´t stream their fights delayed, just record them, upload to a good server and stream from there?

k-1 had all these WGP Local tournaments. WGP Regional Tournamnets. Final 16 WGP. Final 8 WGP. The name. The logo. The music. The PR. And of course most of thier events were held in Asia, when the atmosphere/feeling was incredible. The fans, The entrance, the light, fire special effect show, the the girls, the japanese ring announcers. That was mad.
Actually they sold the rights (they gave their word and shook hands) to Glory first but within 24 hours they changed their mind and sold it to Mr. Kim.

My guess is Mr. Kim lost a lot of money with the previous events so he is doing what he can given his limited resources.

K-1 is not dead, but at this point its popularity is at rock bottom.

I don't get the people on this forum at all. Yokkao and K-1 getting shit from people for seemingly running a stable enough organizations but because they aren't throwing huge moneyburner shows they are shit. Then Legend being raised to be something awesome for kickboxing when all they are doing is burning money with no future in sight. Stability is hugely underrated here.
Good pount, never thought of that.

It's not dead it just sucks , you need to move on from what your memory tells you K-1 is and realize that now it's something different

What was the decision behind breaking up the actual tournament? I was looking at the final 4 videos trying to find the actual final but it didn't happen on that card????

Buakaw vs Khel will be another one sided beating and hopefully Buakaw will sign with Glory, even Cro Cop left K1 despite them gift wrapping a tourney for him

I havnt given up on it, but I'm not necessarily excited when they announce an event. It's kinda like "Hey cool, another event I can watch, hope it's entertaining". If they didn't have Buakaw, I'd watch their events like I would an Enfusion event; hoping to see decent fights, but not expecting a whole lot... then again it's sort've how I watch them now. The production quality is comparable too.
