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 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.

I can't wait to see K-1 on national tv,last time I heard they were abandoning the K-1 name?

Have the playground record for most perfectly predicted fights. I think :)

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.
