For the uninitiated the K-1 World Grand Prix Final 16 takes place on Sunday afternoon in Japan, which means for Americans and most in Europe, it will be starting a bit earlier. For Americans, it means staying up really, really late to watch a Japanese event, which hasn't been the case for quite a while and is actually a nice change of pace. We've been getting a lot of questions about how to watch the event, what time it is airing and exactly what is going on. Never fear, while information-tracking hasn't been entirely easy, here is what we've got for you.
The event goes down at 16:00 Tokyo time, which means 3:00am Eastern time in the US/12:00am Pacific.
How do you watch it? Well, Spike should be providing access to a stream at http://www.spike.com/shows/k-1/live. As the event draws near we'll keep you updated with how to watch.
