Contender Asia to be on Versus

I know this isnt a K-1 topic but since its about MT fighting this is the only place for it really. Both Contenders boxing/MT will be on Versus.I have never seen the show maybe a few of you have,but i love that Versus it doing. This could be start to maybe getting Versus to show K-1. Its a bit of reach but they are looking to expand on what they are running on t.v and i for one will let them know that they should give it try.

This is great news! Thanks for posting that bro

And you posted that in the right section because this section is not for exclusively K-1, its for any Kickboxing, Muay Thai topics.

Good find Zero!

This is great, no more watching it on streams.

If you haven't checked it out yet watch the Yod/JWP fight I posted in the video thread. It's the final to the first season and a great fight.

Its about 6 episodes in here in Australia and i can tell you its great. As a purist there are things I would change but the fighters are top quality and theres plenty of drama.

Overall a good advertisement for the sport
