    when did HDNet start doing the english commentary?

    i ask because my MMA Club is going to start hosting MMA Viewing parties where we watch previous MMA Events (eg. Pride FC, old UFC, etc.) and i wanted to include DREAM in it, but i don't know when they started doing English commentary.

    From what i remember, they didn't do english commentary for the first event right?

    Why do you need commentary? I would imagine people in such a club knowing what is going on there. I sometimes would watch Pride in Japanese. I only understand a little Japanese, but the structure of the production is not so out there that you couldn't follow what was happening.

    yeah but there are some somewhat ignorant "rednecks" :)mamoru:) that would probably complain about the Japanese.

    Well they should be open minded. If close minded people were in Mixed Martial Arts we would still be working on our karate kick.

    Edit: Sorry pet peeve of mine. I went and saw hero with some friends and on the way out one said "Would have been better if I didn't have to read what they were saying". I hate dubbed shit, they make orthodox christian russians angry.

    on a side note, my roommate and i are really debating on whether we'd want to go to Japan after we graduate in 2011 to see a DREAM event live and ringside.

    it'd be about 1200 for the tickets (roundtrip from BWI) and another 300 for the event tickets.

    anyone been to Japan for an MMA show? what's it like?

    I know a cage member did go, but who it was is slipping me now :)420: memory) I may be starting a rumor right here, but I thought Loco went with Mayhem to one, probably wrong though.

    The person that went had a blast though and saw Sakuraba outside with a cig all depressed. :rofl:

    I'm pretty sure Dream has had English commentary from the beginning.

    I went to Dream 6 and got the $300 tickets on the floor near the entrance, 12 rows back from the ring. If your going to travel all the way to japan to see a dream event, you should wait until dream puts on a big main event and get VIP tickets, that way you're guaranteed to have great seats. Thats where everyone like Fedor, Barnett, Kid, Jerome LeBanner, and Badr Hari were sitting. Overall, it was really fun. I've always been a pride nuthugger, so seeing all the old pride fighters and japanese fighters was pretty cool.... except seeing crocop getting hit in the nuts 3 times by overeem. Other highlights from the night. Melvin Manhoef's shirt was thrown my way when he fought Mousasi and I got his sweaty, icey hot smelling 'olympia' t-shirt. I got pictures of Jerome Lebanner and Bas Rutten giving me the thumbs up. And Gomi sat right behind my seat half way through the show. I found myself being distracted from being involved with the fights, I was more worried about getting great photos. I ended up downloading the event after it was over just to watch the fights.

    Haha. I was recording a video on my camera when I got it. You see the shirt fly in my direction but as he starts to run toward the ring and my camera follows him then you can hear me yelling "aww yeah!" cuz it lands on me.
