We have all heard of the money troubles FEG has been having, so I figure we may as well start collecting the death notices.
If (when) FEG does die I hope they release their fighters before hand, and don’t try to sell their contracts with the library(ex Pride) in order to make some quick cash. Give the fighters a chance to negotiate for a good contract if they are not happy with their current pay scale.
I hope that someone with brains buys the K-1 portion of FEG, and keeps it alive.
It could be a bad business model, or it could be idiots running the company. I tend to lean towards the latter. Look at the lack of new talent coming out of Japan. They have to put the same ole Pride fighters to get any coverage, and fail to develop new talent.
Same thing with K-1.
Zuffa will keep mma alive.
FEG dying will kill K-1, and pro kick boxing on a global level (some countries [Holland] have strong Kick Boxing circles, BUT limited GLOBAL appeal).
