    Nooooooo. One of the best sports never seemed to get the proper love. I know COVID effected them a lot but still

    Serious question?

    K-1 has long been dead, even if they put on tiny regional shows occasionally

    K-1 Japan has been doing bigger shows in recent years. decent crowds in Saitama. nothing compared to what it was but not totally insignificant

    Glory should apply the It's Showtime's tactic, remain only in Europe.

    Muay - thai and Kickbox is dying mainly in europe u can take Oktagon Underground as proove.. they bringed lot of standup fighters into pyramids with MMA gloves and inside of Octagon they gave them little bit of fame and hype ,,, what happend? just today 4 new signings -

    Daniel "DeeDee" Škvor (Glory) - signed with Oktagon

    Matěj "Money" Peňáz (Glory) - signed with Oktagon

    Tadeáš "Mawar" Růžička (K1 WAKO World champ,MuayThai IFMA World champ) - signed with Oktagon ( he said that he is tired of fighting in empty arenas)


    Marco Novak (WKU World and European Champ , WMC European Champ) - signed with Oktagon


    Its because of hype in MMA more fans .. more money... more fame.. more opportunities

    Glory was dope. Ristie’s run was a lot of fun.

    Never really got into Glory. I blame the fact that Fightpass region blocked it in Canada.

    ONE's KB/MT content is all amazing.
