The way they went they should've gone one way or the other. That way this would've been an actual match and Aoki could drop down the ranks. Unfortunately the way the match was structured, Aoki's MMA rank will probably remain unscathed!

WTF was Aoki thinking, he survived a 3 minutes K1 round with the guy and took his back multiple times, why in the world did he shoot low....he should've kept the same strategy than on round 1 and eventually end up taking the back.

Yeah, that way he could've taken him down and submitted him. That would've been a good fight. Then again this was a freakshow!

Ratings are in

I had fun watching Dynamite, but I guess the ratings disappointed. From some articles linked in a bloodyelbow article:

Quote:
Quietly, the ratings number came out for the 2010 K-1 Dynamite show on Tokyo Broadcasting System and it was a 9.8% rating. A sub-10% rating was the very last thing K-1 needed. (Though it was nice to know that they ended up giving an attendance for the show - 26,729.)
Quote:
The first part of K-1 Dynamite: The Power of Courage 2010 aired from 9:00 p.m. to 10:50 p.m. and pulled an average of 9.8, while the second half ran from 10:50 p.m. to 11:39 p.m. and drew a 7.8 score. Both numbers fell short of the ratings for “Dynamite 2009,” which aired on TBS in three parts and scored averages of 16.7, 11.8 and 10.6.

Some of the articles quoted in the link also speculate that they'll lose their current TV deal. But on the bright side, they indicate they might have a station to go to should that happen.

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.

Which channel would they go to if they lost their contract with TBS?

Fuji TV was suggested as a destination here.

Tokyo Broadcasting System is the outlet for DREAM, K1 MAX, and Dynamite. Fuji TV is the outlet for K1 and fortunately, 2010 was a solid year for FEG. They also furthered their relationship with the network and what could be TBS's loss if they decide to cut ties with FEG could be FUJI's gain. The original plan for the shows on TBS were less about fighting about more about infiltrating the other shows on the network and this was a failure. Fuji appears to have a greater interest in combat sports and I would suspect that all of FEG's programming will find its way onto the network very soon.

Dynamite!!! needed to deliver in a big way and it didn't. There was no Sakuraba retirement match to garner media attention. Shinya Aoki, once the biggest draw in DREAM, lost the remaining luster he once had, and the one major Japanese heavyweight K1 star Kyotaro, was defeated by a blown up light heavyweight in a fight where the K1 Champ looked sluggish from a grueling K1 schedule. Unless there are major storylines in the future, I would expect the decline to continue. The K1 brand is still strong but the MMA aspect may be all but dead.

I thought Fuji was the home for Sengoku. Where is the home of Sengoku then?

It is. I'm guessing they can both survive there.
