Don't think so. Don't watch too much tv though. ESPN has just come over though and have done a fairly good job with football, some boxing and UFC. In fact I love that we get the UFC events at no extra cost other than the subscription to the channel and I forget that they are PPV over there in the US. I couldn't pay $50 for an event.

TBH I'm not surprised that K-1 and DREAM isn't widely available anywhere outside Japan. They are very insular in that they cater to the Japanese only and care little for the global fans, although that could be changing.
