Bellator Fighting Championships won't be the only combat-sports organization broadcasting their 2013 events on Spike TV.

Spike TV officials today announced a multi-platform broadcast deal with leading kickboxing promotion K-1 that sees four 2012 events stream on Spike.com and a series of 2013 events broadcast on Spike TV.

"We are thrilled to be in business with the world's preeminent kickboxing organization," Spike TV Senior Vice President of Sports and Multi-platform Events Jon Slusser stated. "Spike has the most passionate and knowledgeable fans of combat sports, and we are confident that they will enjoy the high-octane action of K-1, which serves as the perfect complement to our Bellator coverage next year."

Be cool if Cro Cop is still under contract with them by the time they're on Spike.

This is the best news I have heard in a long long time! I'm more excited about this then the UFC Fox deal. I was so high on K1 right before it fell apart. I hope they can get it going strong.
