K-1 Coming to Columbus, Feb. 28 at Arnold Sports Festival

Word has been swirling around for a bit now that K-1 would be coming back to the United States on February 28 in Columbus, Ohio, USA and now there's confirmation from K-1 themselves and the Arnold Sports Festival that this is indeed happening.

As mentioned above, the event takes place on February 28 at the Battelle Grand in Columbus as part of the Arnold Sports Festival, an annual festival in Columbus that draws many people. The UFC also used to hold events coinciding with the dates of the Arnold Sports Festival. This time, K-1 will officially be a part of the Arnold Sports Festival, on the first day, February 28.
