K-1 : The New PRIDE?

So apparently Gomi and Sokoudjou are moving to hero's eventually.

Has Zuffa forgot to buy K-1 as well to get a rid of competition? Because if K-1 keeps going like this, while they are not getting the huge superstars, they are taking a lot of the rest that are availaible..

But K-1 is very japaneese oriented, if they would open up a bit, maybe they could become the new pride?

Bring back knees strikes on grounded opponents.. Give me good arguments for not having them for crying out loud.

K-1 actually is quite well known. It's been around for a long, long time. They don't really make a whole lot of money though apparently so this could be very good for them. I saw Hero*s as #3 anyway.

A question, couldn't this have been put in the K-1 forum? The K-1 forum has crap all topics..

Gomi is a MASSIVE addition to k1. The guy is the biggest Japanese star going . I mean how huge would Kid Yamamoto vs Gomi be? It won't be Pride but I can call Hero's the next competition for the UFC. They also have the added bonus of kick boxers crossing over and of course freak show matches.

Does Hero's allow knees to a downed opponent, stomps and soccer kicks?

Wow Takanori Gomi VS Norifumi Yamamoto... That'd be the Lightweight fight of the century!
