Yeah for sure there is definitely a group of solid fans, just strange that it's not a very popular subject on an mma forum, most of the posters of which are big fans of the good strikers in mma, the very limited crossover is kinda odd I think.
K-1 is not really in a good place right now IMO, there are always quality fights but isn't really a great time to be a fan like it was when I first saw it. Read Kaman's recent interview and what he said about K-1, I pretty much agree with him.
Yeah I agree with some of the things he said, but they are creating a 135lb class too, so that should be fun to watch, and Max is usually entertaining despite the consistent appearance of certain names, and we always have Badr Hari to shake things up in the hw class, if he ever gets out of jail anytime soon lol
Yeah I would tend to agree, a big problem it has always had too is that the American track record on the world stage.....well it sucks, that is a pretty big factor when it comes to getting a following from that country. While there will always be people that watch it despite not having top names from their own particular country, it is a big help to have a big name that people can root for to draw in casual fans.
