File - In this July 14, 2011 file photo, Spanish bullfighter Julian Lopez 'El Juli' aims his sword to kill a bull during a bullfight in Pamplona, Spain. Bullfights return live to Spanish state TV Wednesday Sept. 5, 2012, six years after the fights were banned from the widely watched public channel with the broadcast featuring one of Spain's most storied bullfighters and giving a boost to a tradition hit hard by declining popularity and a dire economic crisis. Julian Lopez, known by his nickname “El Juli,” will kill hulking half-ton bulls raised by a renowned breeder. He and other fighters are waiving payments demanded in better economic times for the right to broadcast their battles, a decision that helped Spain's new austerity-minded conservative government in its drive to get the fights back on national TV and promote bullfighting as important cultural heritage.
