K-1 Japan has slowly but surely been building up their popularity after the brand took a hit in 2011 when FEG folded up shop and owed most of their fighters a lot of money. While many thought that K-1 was done for, K-1 Japan sprung up and has been keeping the K-1 name alive with some of the very best shows anywhere in the world. After a few years in operation they feel like it’s time to return to K-1’s spiritual home of the Saitama Super Arena on March 21st, 2018 and the card that they are presenting is perhaps one of the strongest that we’ve seen in a very, very long time.
Getting Takeru vs. Taiga, again, just feels like fans are being spoiled in the best way possible.
