I've seen a few K-1's and had a look at the k-1 photo thread and I've hardly ever seen any lightweight fighters. Why? It seems like most of the guys are well above 200lbs and have been hitting the weights quite a bit. Is all the muscle really necessary for a k-1 fight?
The Japanese like larger than life fighter's who have a character.
Maybe it is because they have no weight divisions.
That would make sense to me.
The 1 in K1 means one weightclass although now they have added another class too.
