4/29 M-1 Challenge 3rd Edition Japan - Results

Wednesday 29 April 2009

First off, apologies for not being able to stream the event, as I had promised. The reason, as I mentioned yesterday was the rights in a couple of countries. I was not able to set up a something to exclude those viewers from my site. I hope most fans have been able to view the event, if not it will be streaming at the M-1 site for 24 hours so the fans can watch it. On Monday 4th May they will also show the Aoki vs. Fedor fight on same site.

I was not able to see much of the event, but what I saw looked very good. A few of my friends were in the crowd and enjoyed the event. It was clear that there has been an increase in the popularity of these events.

The team from across the Pacific, USA Team West has made the headlines. Defeating the Koreans 5-0 is a very good performance.
