for those who said ANYTHING like: "K-1 is kickboxing" try reading the post, not just the title.
I think there should be a vBookie entry on HERO'S becoming Pride. Make the odds like 6/1 so I can make bank.
HERO'S is Japan's "F*** you" to the Fertittas. Pride is dead as hell, but somebody will be pissed off enough to reincarnate it through a different means.
And all it takes to pay fighters a shitload in Japan, is a contract with Fuji TV. Tell me that they aren't watching closely for the next Pride after the haul they made from the original.
