DREAM New Years show announced

Fight For Japan: Genki Desu Ka Omisoka 2011 has been officially announced. They even put out a promo video featuring the one and only Fedor. The Japanse fans love them some Fedor.

You should be excited. I am. Fedor vs. Ishii is gonna be fun if nothing else. Aoki vs. Kitaoka will be interesting and Kawajiri vs. Miyata/Sakurai vs. Chonan will be awesome! Then we get the Bantamweight Tournament, I like the Japanese, love the tournament style. I miss the old Pride GP’s. This is a close as I will get to one of those for some time. There is no downside to this amazing card. None at all. There’s even a Pro Wrestling match for sh!ts and giggles. I love the Japanese and their programming. HDNet will be showing the event live! Of course that means 3am. Still, it’s live! There is still talk of the Tim Sylvia vs. Brett ‘The Grim’ Rogers on this card, for those of you interested in watching a convicted wife beater compete. See, it’s fun for everyone. Have I mentioned I love the Japanese?
