    This could be HUUUUUGE news if only kickboxing can get its shit together. It looks like Hari is probably gone due to attitude.

    about time someone took advantage of kickboxing

    that shit should have been mainstream so long ago

    dudes kicking each other in the fucking head is awesome and if you don't love it you're probably a pussy

    Spike is doing big things, I wonder if they are still going to obtain Bellator now (in a TV deal)?

    yes, bellator is a go in 2013.

    they already got king mo lined up for lhw tourney

    i think people still largely associate spiketv with mma, so it could be a boost for both sports. whenever spike goes head to head with ufc's live programming, they do quite well. goes to show how retarded the mma fanbase is.

    UNFORTUNATELY I think they DON'T now. Everyone is just getting on the "wtf I don't have any of the 'free' ufc channels" phase. BUT I think most people still have that station, but even with that said, most may have switched it out of their plan by now (I know afew older UFC watchers with families in these situations).

    Either way, K-1 should get a wave of new fans, which is great for them, and Bellator and claim what is left of the UFC fans...This is sick news for the station, I just fear it is a bit to late for Spike unless these things are VERY popular from the get-go, and make people want to purchase the station.

    i just think it's a bit too late for k1. i don't really understand how all these recent purchases work out in the end, but a lot of the good fighters are sore with the company because they didnt get paid in the past.

    wish all good kickboxers fought for one company

    Bellator is getting a reality TV show as well on Spike TV in 2013...
    Bellator may be able to claim #2 from OneFC with this...

    I thought It's Showtime bought K1 so all of the good ones should be now

    that's what i thought, but everything i've read indicates that talent won't be freely shared.
