HDNet’s popularity with hardcore MMA fans has a lot to do with their dedication to airing overseas events from the Land of the Rising Sun and beyond. This new year’s eve will be no different, as the network plans to bring “DREAM: Fight for Japan: Genkidesuka!! Oomisoka!! 2011” to the masses (for those who are lucky enough to have this in their sports package).
Beginning at 1 a.m. EST on Saturday, December 31, HDNet will crank up this Japanese smorgasbord of MMA action and continue forward for nine continuous hours. Headlining the event will be Fedor Emelianenko taking on Olympic Judo medalist Satoshi Ishii, will a slew of other great matches support up this massive fight card. As if this wasn’t enough to whet your appetite, feel free to oogle over the following promo poster.
