It's already been a busy combat sports weekend, with Bellator, UFC, and Glory representing kickboxing, but we're not done yet. Join us here at Bloody Elbow today to discuss all the action as K-1 returns for K-1 Rising 2012 in Madrid, Spain. Featuring the opening round of the 2012 K-1 World MAX Grand Prix along with Heavyweight fights from Badr Hari, Mirko Cro Cop, and Daniel Ghita, this is a great all-around card.
The show is available as a live stream on K-1's UStream channel (K1GlobalTV) and begins today at 12:15 p.m. ET / 9:15 a.m. PT. There is a bit of confusion over that start time though, as they have opening fights set to start at that time, and an "opening ceremony" scheduled for roughly two hours later, so we'll have to see what happens.
Originally, it was going to cost you $20, but on Friday, K-1 announced that the stream would in fact be free. So what excuse do you have not to watch? Even better, you don't even have to leave Bloody Elbow as you can watch the live streaming video after the jump
Here's the complete fight card, and for a more in-depth look, be sure to check out my preview.
Welcome back K-1 - we missed you!

Editor's note by Brent Brookhouse: I added the video stream for Fraser, when I was previewing it before posting it, it was working. If it ends up not working, we'll still have this post up for discussion but you'll have to go to the uSteam page to watch it. The stream will start around 4 p.m. ET.
