I was at the fight sat night and had a conversation with someone who reminded me the KOTC was a strong third behind Pride and UFC just a couple years ago. In fact, many people on this here little message board thought they were a legit contender to the UFC for the US market.
If I have my info right, they had their PPV deal before Zuffa got theirs back. And they had that crazy deal with pride to bring fighters over for US fights.
What in the hell happened?
