Spike TV has officially confirmed to Bloody Elbow that their deal with K-1 is finished, and the network will not be airing K-1 in 2013. Will Glory step in and take their place?

I would love for Glory to step in. They certainly have the roster of fighters to make a significant impact in North America.

Speaking of Glory, Saki tweeted yesterday that him and Ghita will be fighting at Glory 6 in Istanbul (Saki is part Turkish). Can't wait for that sick rematch.

when the hell was K-1 ever on spike? There is no time with their daily marathons of CSI, Jail, Cops, 1000 Ways to Die and Deadliest Warrior

K1 is dead. Glory is the kickboxing organization of the future

I thought the same thing, looks like they were planing to show them on the network this year but something fell through. I blame the Yakuza.
