Not only is Dream returning to close the year out in style, but the Japanese promotion is coming back with one of the longest event titles in MMA history. “Dream: Fight for Japan. How are you! New Year! 2011” takes place December 31st inside the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama.

On Thursday, the organization announced a pair of featherweight bouts for the card. Tatsuya Kawajiri will meet Kazuyuki Miyata, while 145-pound champion Hiroyuki Takaya defends his title against Takeshi Inoue.

In addition to showcasing mixed martial arts fights, the show is also expected to feature kickboxing and pro-wrestling scraps.

It is anticipated that HDNet will broadcast the card in North America, but it hasn’t been determined whether the extravaganza will air live or via tape-delay.

Additional bouts will be added to the roster shortly.
