Oh the heels of announcing Fedor Emelianenko would make his anticipated return to Japan this New Year’s Eve, Dream has released a promo for their December 31st extravaganza featuring the legendary heavyweight.
Based on the organization’s official website, and considering Emelianenko’s highlights are plastered all over the hype video, it appears “The Last Emperor’s” scrap against Satoshi Ishii will headline the star-studded festivities.
Shinya Aoki also defends his lightweight crown against Satoru Kitaoka in the event.
HDNet will broadcast the show live in North America beginning at 1AM ET/10PM PT.
