DREAM 18 airing on CBS Sports

Fans with the resolve to avoid spoilers and a hankering for some MMA action on New Year’s Eve got a treat today when it was confirmed the upcoming super-show between DREAM/Glory Sports International would see light on American airwaves. The card is set to take place live in Japan and is available via PPV for hardcore enthusiasts. However, folks uninterested in catching things before sunrise can see all the action via tape delay on CBS Sports starting at 10:00 PM EST.

MMAFighting was first to report the matter, stating the kickboxing portion would start things off with MMA taking over at 1:00 AM EST. A subsequent press release from the promotion has confirmed things.

A replay of DREAM 18 will also be broadcast the following day as well.

The card is scheduled to feature a single-evening, sixteen-man heavyweight kickboxing tournament with hundreds of thousands of dollars up for grabs, as well as a slew of interesting MMA scraps. Among the notable match-ups slated to unfold in the ring at the year-end extravaganza are the likes of Melvin Manhoef-Denis Kang, Tatsuya Kawajiri-Michihiro Omigawa, Phil Baroni-Hayato Sakurai, Bibiano Fernandes-Yoshiro Maeda, and Shinya Aoki-Antonio McKee.
