The biggest fight event of the year in Japan will feature their two most prominent MMA promotions joining together for “Dynamite!! 2009.” New Year’s Eve in Japan is huge every year, which is why Fedor Emelianenko was so adamant about fighting on December 31st in Japan in years past.
Unfortunately, Dream vs. Sengoku won’t be able to have Fedor on their card this year, but from what has been announced, they might not need him.
