Am I the only one guilty of wanting to see this fight?

Some good things happening in Japan for the guys not heading to UFC (Sylvia/Rogers/Fedor/Moussasi/Aoki/ etc.)

I wanted to see it.

The fight is off because Rogers can't go to Japan thereore Sylvia has been taken off the card as well.

Kazushi Sakuraba and Josh Barnett are going to ... wrestle... at the DREAM show:

Quote:
The lineup for "DREAM: New Year! 2011" continues to fill, and former UFC legend Josh Barnett (31-5) and MMA legend Kazushi Sakuraba (26-16-1) are among the latest additions to the year-end event.

DREAM executives recently announced both notables will take part in pro-wrestling contests, with Barnett facing Hideki Suzuki while Sakuraba and Katsuyori Shibata take on Shinichi Suzukawa and Atsushi Sawada in a tag-team affair.

DREAM also added a pair of kickboxing contests to the card with Yuta Kubo vs. Nils Widlund and Masaaki Noiri vs. Kengo Sonoda.

The event, officially dubbed "DREAM: Fight for Japan: Genkidesuka!! Oomisoka!! 2011!," is set for Dec. 31 at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. The event airs live in the early morning in North America on HDNet.

The 42-year-old Sakuraba, who was a professional wrestler prior to his mixed-martial-arts career, last competed in an MMA contest at September's DREAM.17 event, where he was submitted by Yan Cabral. It was the fourth-consecutive loss for the Japanese superstar, who was dubbed "The Gracie Hunter" during his glory days for wins over Gracie family members Royce, Renzo, Royler and Ryan.

Meanwhile, Barnett will keep himself busy while waiting on Strikeforce brass to officially announce the date for his Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix final contest with Daniel Cormier. Barnett punched his ticket to the finals with Strikeforce wins over Sergei Kharitonov and Brett Rogers.

With the additions to the card, the "DREAM: New Year! 2011" lineup now includes:

Fedor Emelianenko vs. Satoshi Ishii
Ryo Chonan vs. Hayato "Mach" Sakurai
Champ Shinya Aoki vs. Satoru Kitaoka (for lightweight title)
Yuichiro Nagashima vs. Katsunori Kikuno (mixed-rules bout)
Champ Hiroyuki Takaya vs. Takeshi "Lion" Inoue (for featherweight title)
Tatsuya Kawajiri vs. Kazuyuki Miyata
Rodolfo Marques Diniz vs. Bibiano Fernandes (bantamweight grand-prix semifinal)
Antonio Banuelos vs. Masakazu Imanari (bantamweight grand-prix semifinal)
Hideo Tokoro vs. Yusup Saadulaev (bantamweight grand-prix reserve match)
Karla Benitez vs. Megumi Fujii
Kazuyuki Fujita vs. Peter Aerts (pro-wrestling match)
Atsushi Sawada and Shinichi Suzukawa vs. Kazushi Sakuraba and Katsuyori Shibata (pro-wrestling match)
Josh Barnett vs. Hideki Suzuki (pro-wrestling match)
Yuta Kubo vs. Nils Widlund (kickboxing match)
Masaaki Noiri vs. Kengo Sonoda (kickboxing match)

This reminds me more of the Inoki Bon Ba Ye shows put on in the early 2000s. That actually makes sense considering IGF's involvement. Anyways I wonder if Fedor is going to make more risks.

This is the latest crazy addition:

Quote:
Former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia will face Jerome Le Banner in Japan.

DREAM officials recently announced the matchup for the year-ending "DREAM: New Year! 2011" event, but there's a catch: Sylvia and Le Banner won't meet in an MMA contest but rather a professional wrestling bout.

Headlined by a heavyweight matchup between Fedor Emelianenko and Satoshi Ishii, "DREAM: New Year! 2011" airs live in North America at 1 a.m. ET on Saturday morning, Dec. 31 (10 p.m. PT Friday evening, Dec. 30).

Officially dubbed "DREAM: Fight for Japan: Genkidesuka!! Oomisoka!! 2011!," the card features MMA bouts, kickboxing contests and three additional professional wrestling matches. The festivities take place at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

Due to the length of the show, the live broadcast will be the only time HDNet airs the fight card in its entirety. Future airings of the event will be broken up into smaller specials.

Sylvia was originally expected to face Brett Rogers at "DREAM: New Year! 2011" in actual MMA bout, but "The Grim" had difficulties obtaining a visa for the contest and was forced to withdraw. Sylvia, who is 6-1 in his past seven real fights, made his professional-wrestling debut in September 2010, facing Josh Barnett in a match for the Inoki Genome Federation, the same promotion overseeing the wrestling bouts on the DREAM card.

Le Banner, a French striking legend who made his mark as a professional kickboxer, also has experience as a professional boxer and mixed-martial-artist. Le Banner fought MMA most recently in a New Year's Eve loss to Satoshi Ishii one year ago.

With the addition to the card, the "DREAM: New Year! 2011" lineup now includes:

Fedor Emelianenko vs. Satoshi Ishii
Ryo Chonan vs. Hayato "Mach" Sakurai
Champ Shinya Aoki vs. Satoru Kitaoka (for lightweight title)
Yuichiro Nagashima vs. Katsunori Kikuno (mixed-rules bout)
Champ Hiroyuki Takaya vs. Takeshi "Lion" Inoue (for featherweight title)
Tatsuya Kawajiri vs. Kazuyuki Miyata
Rodolfo Marques Diniz vs. Bibiano Fernandes (bantamweight grand-prix semifinal)
Antonio Banuelos vs. Masakazu Imanari (bantamweight grand-prix semifinal)
Hideo Tokoro vs. Yusup Saadulaev (bantamweight grand-prix reserve match)
Karla Benitez vs. Megumi Fujii
Yuta Kubo vs. Nils Widlund (kickboxing match)
Masaaki Noiri vs. Kengo Sonoda (kickboxing match)
Kazuyuki Fujita vs. Peter Aerts (pro-wrestling match)
Atsushi Sawada and Shinichi Suzukawa vs. Kazushi Sakuraba and Katsuyori Shibata (pro-wrestling match)
Josh Barnett vs. Hideki Suzuki (pro-wrestling match)
Jerome Le Banner vs. Tim Sylvia (pro-wrestling match)

Well this is going to be an interesting New Years Even event. Though notice it's solely a Dream bout. I don't think K-1 is involved.

I wonder if that's going to make a difference.
