No, K-1 and US don't really go together. In fact I don't even think the K-1's website for the US works anymore.

Actually, Mighty Mo is good. I consider him in the current top 10 of the big boys (WGP)

Like MLS said though, the US and K-1 don't go well together. Its a shame that its not bigger here.

Eh, I'm not to big on Mighty Mo because he is very one dimensional. If he doesn't land that big right his chances of winning go way down. He also can't handle leg kicks (Aerts showed us that ).

Even the K-1 events that they have in the US were/are usually fighters from other countries.

They weren't spectatcular but weren't horrible, mediocre is probably the best term. Since there isn't a great US fighter there isn't much of a draw here. They are having an event in Hawaii in a month or so.

Mighty Mo would really be a bottom guy if the division wasn't so freakin crappy right now. I said it because he's really all we got.

In the old school Rick Roufas was fun to watch. He wasn't bad ass but he was decent.
