HDNet to carry DREAM "Dynamite!! 2010" live in the U.S.Posted on November 20, 2010, 05:12 PM by NeoSamurai
DREAM's year-end blockbuster show, "Dynamite!! 2010," is expected to air live in the U.S. on HDNet.
HDNet Fights CEO Andrew Simon confirmed the plans with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).
The event takes place Dec. 31 at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.
Currently, officials have announced only one fight for the card: a featherweight title bout and grand-prix-finale rematch between champion Bibiano Fernandes and Hiroyuki Takaya. However, as MMAjunkie.com recently reported, the show could feature an MMA-rules bout between DREAM champ Gegard Mousasi and K-1 kickboxing legend Jerome Le Banner, and many other notables are rumored for the show.
Japan's major MMA organizations – including the now-defunct K-1 HERO's and PRIDE Fighting Championships – traditionally close out the year with major shows.
Japan's other top current promotion, World Victory Road, hosts its show, "Soul of Fight," on Dec. 30 as part of an all-day martial-arts festival. Simon said the MMA portion of the day likely will air on HDNet in some form, but details still are being finalized.
