    Hot damn, I didn’t realize this card was so stacked. Unfortunately for me, I’m going to have to watch it online the day after. Here’s hoping Kid Yamamoto can come back strong with a big win.

    I’m so glad HDNet is airing this. The card looks bad ass!

    I hope they show all the fights in what turns into a 6 hour marathon of combat sports. That would be sweet.

    Because if I’m not mistaken, these should come on very early New Years Eve, which means I can wake up that day and watch these at my convenience off the DVR…and then party that night.

    Sounds like a perfect plan for that day! :)

    A little to much info Hindsight, but funny.
    This is another pretty fun card to see for free, hopefully Fujita vs Overeem lasts a while but we will see,
    also looking forward to the finals of the super hulk tournament finals, hopefully Minowman takes it.

  • azsimp says:

    Kazuyuki Fujita is 1-3 in the past 3 years and is smallish for HW. When will Overeem fight in Strikeforce again? WTF, he is still listed as their HW title holder, I think there is some Russian guy on Strikeforces roster who would like a shot at that belt!

  • Bad Monkey says:

    THAT’S IT!!!!!! If Strikeforce doesn’t strip Overeem of the title immediately then having Fedor on their roster is f**king worthless. Alistair Overjuiced is NEVER coming back to fight in the States.

  • qat says:

    did mousasi requested to fight under k-1 rules?
    and yeah, overeem gets another easy fight, all for the record, baby!

  • hindsightufuk says:

    yeah from what i heard gegard wanted to do more k1 rules. dont be suprised to see him boxing at some point in the next couple years too
