    As a former casual fan of K-1, I really enjoyed watching events.
    Considering the very high level of competition that I believe existed in K-1, I was hoping for some explanation as to where all the demand for that venue went? It seemed gargantuan and unbeatable...

    Did all the Japanese fans disappear with Masato?

    Now where can I watch kickboxing? It seems like there is no more money left in the sport, no more demand, and its literally dieing?

    What are the odds of another organization like K-1 being established?
    If your a young fighter do you think you would still be inclined to approach the kickboxing game over boxing or mma?

    What is the future of the sport?

    What are the major venues right now?

    Glory on Spike. Chinese promotions on laggy streams. K1 Japan via Japanese Proxy or Youtube.

    YouTube is the best. K-1 World GP uploads all the new K-1 fights in HD. Chinese promotions like WLF and Kunlun upload full events to YouTube. Glory has events live on Spike, and again also uploads full HD fights to YouTube a week after.
