So the Japan MAX card is this Sunday at 5pm Osaka time (4am EST). It features three 63-kilo superfights in addition to the Japan MAX tournament:

Kizaemon Saiga vs. Valdrin Vatnikaj
Yuichiro Nagashima vs. Kenmun
Yuta Kubo vs. Andre Bruhl (70-7-3 in kickboxing)

Does anyone know if any TV deal was ever reached for this? Will K1 at least stream it on their Youtube and/or Ustream channel?

Nice, I will try and check this out. It's pretty much there for Kraus to take, but it's MAX so it should be a good show.

Happy to see there will be another K-1 GP in October! Btw was there a 2 KD rule in the second Overeem Hari fight? I think it was stopped too early.

Anyone watching the Japan GP? Kraus got dropped on his ass and eliminated from his first fight, if he had his mullet it would have been different .

Well, Yuji Nashiro ended up taking the whole thing, all in all a solid event.

Yuya Yamamoto vs Kenta was the shit, fight of the night definitely.

It's ShowtimeIt's Showtime just sent out a press release announcing a multi-year agreement between them and the new owners of K-1, effective immediately. What this means is that K-1 is looking to scoop up talent for upcoming shows, and has looked to fighters under It's Showtime's management as there are numerous ones. Many It's Showtime fighters have signed, with more to come, with the new K-1 Global Holdings paying fighters 50% of the money owed to them by FEG. It is not clear what, exactly, FEG's involvement will be, if anything.

Full press release follows.

IT'S SHOWTIME closes deal with new K-1 organization.

With immediate effect, IT'S SHOWTIME closed a multi-year deal with the new owner of the K-1 label, Mr. Mike Kim. The company of Mr. Kim is called K-1 Global and is established in Hong Kong.

Even though this new company didn’t have any obligations towards our company and our fighters, K-1 Global has paid all of our fighters this week. This means that every fighter received a signing bonus which consists of 50% of the money that was still owed to them by the old company FEG.

K-1 will organize 4 big events already this year, including the final 16 and final 8 in the 70kg and heavyweight division. The bonuses the fighters can win will be astronomically high, but we leave it up to the company of K-1 Global to announce these amounts. We will also leave it up to them to announce the event schedule, but three weeks from now everything will be announced.

The following fighters have already signed a contract with K-1 on behalf of IT’S SHOWTIME: Daniel Ghita, Tyrone Spong, Hesdy Gerges, Paul Slowinski, Rico Verhoeven, Anderson ‘Braddock’ Silva, Ben Edwards, Melvin Manhoef, Sergii Lashchenko, Mourad Bouzidi, Dzevad Poturak, Chahid Oulad El Hadj, Gago Drago and Andy Ristie.

Contracts which are ready to be signed with K-1 this week: Ruslan Karaev, Harut Grigorian, Chris Ngimbi, etc.

There have been several contracts signed with other big names in kickboxing, but these are not under contract with IT’S SHOWTIME, so we wait for K-1 Global to announce these names.

We are very happy with these positive developments in our sport and for all fighters in the world who now get the possibilities to show their talent in K-1.

K-1 Global held a press conference to unveal Masato as the new executive producer today, but they also revealed the locations of all their events this year.

K-1 will hold five events this year, downgraded from the seven originally planned. The shows in summer have been scrapped, but from September to December, there are four K-1 events. They are as follows:

Early September - Qualifying World GP 2012/World MAX 2012 in Los Angeles

October - K-1 World GP 2012 Final 16 in Miami

November - K-1 World MAX 2012 Final in Taipei

December - K-1 World GP 2012 Final in New York

So it looks like the World MAX tournament will stage the Final 8 in Taipei, while the World Grand Prix (Heavyweight) tournament gets started off with the Final 16 in Miami and then the Final 8 in New York. Pretty interesting, to say the least.

First, though, is the K-1 World MAX Final 16, which is on May 27 in Madrid, Spain. 16 fighters will fight to advance to the World MAX 2012 Final in Taipei.
Big goals. Kickboxing isnt big here in the US, and k1 really hasnt been promoting their product here. Im still excited for it!

I'm excited to. The Max show in Spain should be interesting with a new Thai on the circuit in Longern, and I imagine the Max final in Taipei should draw a big crowd.

In terms of the US, I think if the UFC hadn't come around K1 could have been big. Can you imagine if the Mexicans had taken to it, the wars you'd get between the Thais and Mexicans......
