Yes sir. Actually they have started showing some of the IFL events on FSN, which is nice.

Unfortunately all they show of Pride on FSN are random fights from old events. It's ok for me since I own most of the dvd's, but for people who don't all they get to see is random fights.

There is always UFN on Spike, but they are so few and far between right now that it's hard to get your fix of new fights.

As far as K-1, all they have given us up untill this point is the same as Pride, just random fights from past events on ESPN.

Untill the various organizations start giving us more free events on tv, I guess we just have to keep paying what is starting to be crazy prices for their ppv shows and buying the dvds.

I agree. Frye is going to mess him up. I loved when Royce defeated Akebono with a wrist lock. That was classic! When will the Sumos realize that they have no place in MMA?

I do not think there is no place for sumos thier biggest problem I think would be in losing thier Ego, You think the Gracies think they are good? talk to some sumo grand champs and such they have egos that would put gods to shame. and they need alot of extra and I mean alot of extra training

Hopefully K-1 will have some more US events with their big stars, and not just US PayPerView.

DVD's and PPV are good for 'small-time' but if they want to become big-time they have to get on national TV (Spike or something) and have lots of events across the US.

I think it will all come with time.

They are just not in the shape needed to compete with the top athletes of the World. The training for Sumo is just not even in the same Universe as the training required to be a top contender in MMA. Basicaly ever time they enter a MMA ring they end up on their back getting punched untill they tap from strikes or get submitted.

Look at Henry Miller. He was submitted by a circus shideshow attraction who also should have never been in the ring.
