JAPAN: K-1 versus Pride
 
Just an interesting note... i was speaking with a friend of mine from Japan who is visiting the US this week. He knows of both Pride and K-1, but said that K-1 is much more popular in Japan. I was very surprised.

Also, he mentioned that Japanese Pro Wrestling is really struggling right now. Its not doing very well.

K-1 is so huge in Japan that I believe it has actually dethroned Sumo as the most watched sporting event there. With the inception of K-1 Heroes (their MMA division), K-1 pretty much put a lock on their spot where combat sports is concerned.

Puroresu is on huge decline in Japan right now. With the inception of reality-based combat sports, the mystique of the unbeatable Pro Wrestlers has been broken. In turn, it has prompted many Pro Wrestlers to begin training earnestly in MMA. As we know, that has produced varied results in the actual level of skill amongst the fighters commonly matched up in Japan.

k-1 is kickboxing basicly.

3 minutes rounds, i think its 5 rounds, and im not sure about scoring systems, as the only thing i get when theres a decision is who won.

k-1 heroes is mma, rules are the same as pride, except its 5 minutes rounds.

In K1 you can punch, kick and knee all over the body. Clinching and elbows are not allowed.

It's three rounds off three minutes. If there is no winner judges will score the fight and if it's a draw there will be an extra round of three minutes. If there is no winner after that the judges will score again. This could result in a draw.

Same rules apllie for k1 max.

I think it's great there is atleast one country that knows how to organize a perfect event. Props for K1 and pride.

Hey guys....

If K-1 is so big, what do you think we can do on this board to make discussion a bit more popular?

Do we have 3 or 4 guys that would be interested in really helping to build this section? I think it would be cool to have 100 or 200 members that are big K-1 fanatics.

I'm very interested in learning more myself!!
