K-1 12/11 Tokyo, Ariake Colosseum final card

By Zach Arnold | November 27, 2010

With all the chaos surrounding the upcoming Dynamite event at Saitama Super Arena on 12/31, the promotion is putting the final touches for their 12/11 event in Tokyo at Ariake Colosseum. They have their work cut out for them. Here’s how the final card looks:

    Would it have made more sense to have changed things up this year and run the GP Quarters, Semis, and Finals on the Dynamite card? I know that is not what has been traditional for the K-1 Finals. But at this point, they may need to throw tradition out the window in order to have some of their stars able to compete at full health. Mix in the Dream MMA fights and that Dynamite card looks much better, maybe getting TBS to foot the bill

    Just 20 days separate these two cards, with the second one in trouble.

    • Two events to sell advertising on versus one.

      • Gygax says:

        Very true. But if we are to take Zach’s previous story on FEG having to pay TBS to air Dynamite as a distinct possibility, they are going to receive very little in the way of advertising revenue against the cost of producing and airing the NYE show. Combining the two shows could get the best ratings overall for TBS and thus better advertising revenue.

        • If they’ve already sold advertising for the K-1 GP, why bother cancelling that and trying to shift over the advertisers to a more competitive time slot? Its a lot more complicated than that.

          Personally I think they should just abandon doing New Years Shows and look for a different date with less TV competition.

    That would make complete sense, which is probably why it won’t happen. Mixing the finals and Dynamite would make a tremendous card.

    MMA Related comment….

    Yesterday on Amazon.com, EA MMA was as low as $30 for a few hours during one of their black friday “lightning deals”. While many games and movies featured for this sell out or do well….. The EA MMA game only sold around 25% of the inventory they were putting at that discounted price. Not good at all…. Especially considering it is basically still a new release and for half the original price.

    I picked up a copy…..

    Is there a chance somebody can be trying to give K-1 bad publicity by making the rumor of paying for a time slot?

    I love their promotion and really look forward to this GP card!!
