For some time now, a lot of us have wondered about the exact relationship between SUPERKOMBAT and K-1. Last year the two companies announced a joint partnershp moving forward into 2013. However, it seemed that K-1’s deals were potentially fated to go south, when we heard of rumblings within both organizations prior to the K-1 WGP 2013 in Croatia.
Today, Superkombat President, Eduard Irimia, sent out a press release officially announcing that the two companies were no longer working today. What this means for K-1 is ominous at best. The Heavyweight WGP was made up of mostly Superkombat fighters, and it seems as though SK had been K-1’s biggest backers until a series of unfortunate yet (probably) foreseen circumstances occurred during and afterwords the big show.
We’ll have an in-depth interview with Eduard Irimia on the particulars coming later this week, but for now check out his press release for full details leading up to the split.
