I'm with you and I'm sure Yaca is to. We'd love the new version of K-1 to get back to the glory days of the last two decades, but Glory really do have most of the top names fighting under their banner these days and the Madrid event was enjoyable, but not as good IMO as the Glory event put on the same weekend.
The States has never particularly been a hotbed of MT or quality Kickboxing, but maybe this is where the new version of K-1 will capture the imagination of a few guys over there and some stars will be born, maybe Ky Hollenback can shake things up a bit who knows...but he's fighting under the Glory banner.
It's got to be a long term view for K-1 as they can't really compete with Glory at the Moment and good luck to them I'd love to see K-1 not only rise but soar!
