Sucks that K1 got cancelled. Mushin was supposed to fight and we were planning a road trip to go watch.

BALLSDEEP - Dana doesn't like the OAC, and said he would not bring his horse & pony show there again. Still, about every fighter & their mother is there. I heard K-1 is having an event there, but on Thursday night.
Why did he even say that. Because he does not like bodybuilding(something to be said for that though i am very much neutral on the whole thing myself) or is he just mad because it does not make sense from a business perspective to be there?

Or might it be that the whiff of PED emanating from the weekend is to just terrible PR wise?

Did he ever go on the record to say why he dislikes it. I personally really do not see the problem. Phone Post

I heard it here. I have friends on the OAC, but they never said much about it. But I heard it was over the same day weigh ins they had. All I know is after that, they never came back,to the Arnolds or any other time.

I've heard it's more of an issue with the Arnold's brass than the OAC. Ohio is an enormous market for mma. Would be a mistake to not have a live presence here IMO. Phone Post

I think they had a problem with that when the WEC came to ohio something about weighing in the day of the fight couldn't be x amount of pounds over from weigh ins.

Seriously? Or Sarcasm?

bc I'm sure it was canceled bc K-1 has absolutely nothing left in the tank, besides its final 8 show...which wouldn't surprise me, if it had the same fate as this one.

They will be done by summer. Phone Post

Could be a factor for sure (and your dead on about missing out on the Arnold weekend) but they haven't been to town since the WEC debacle, so could be both...

I live here and I also heard that the OAC demanded a ridiculous amount of tickets, dinners and hotel accommodations. Apparently it was more than 10 times the amount any other athletic commission asks for. Phone Post

Crazy when athletic commissions are more crooked than the fight promoters.

No. Apparently cancelled due to K1 being broke!

K1 has a history of financial problems as many of you know.

Best weekend of the year to live in Cbus. Excellent for people watching and laughing at others.
Don't forget the Ohio High School State Wrestling tournament is also this weekend. At Value City Arena on OSU campus. Phone Post

I would imagine Shogun will be there tomorrow if he is here, but I didnt see him today. Thanks BallsDeep, I appreciate the offer but I brought the kids. Cain was there today and I walked right up & got a picture- no line or waiting. He will be there Saturday.
