    Fighting and Entertainment Group announced seven more bouts for the Dynamite!! 2009, which takes place on New Year's Eve at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

    The K-1 and MMA mixed card will air in North American on HDNet.

    Six of those announced match-ups include fighters from DREAM and World Victory Road's Sengoku Raiden Championships battling it out against each other.

    The match ups include Norifumi "KID" Yamamoto (DREAM) vs. Masanori Kanehara (Sengoku), Hayato "Mach" Sakurai (DREAM) vs. Akihiro Gono (Sengoku), Katsuyori Shibata (DREAM) vs. Hiroshi Izumi (Sengoku), Hideo Tokoro (DREAM) vs. Marlon Sandro (Sengoku), Hiroyuki Takaya (DREAM) vs. Michihiro Omigawa (Sengoku) and Alistair Overeem (DREAM) vs. Kazuyuki Fujita (Sengoku).

    The above mentioned fights will be conducted under MMA rules with three five-minute rounds.

    Also officially added to the card today was a K-1 bout between Yosuke Nishijima and Ray Sefo.

    Previously announced MMA bouts taking place at the event include Japanese gold-medalist judoka Satoshi Ishii making his MMA debut against fellow Olympic gold-medalist Hidehiko Yoshida and DREAM's "Super Hulk" finale of Ikuhisa "Minowaman" Minowa vs. Sokoudjou.

    With 14 of the planned 18/19 bouts confirmed for Dynamite!! 2009 thus far, expect the remaining card to be finalized within the week, as the New Year's Eve extravaganza rapidly approaches.

    This new year's card seems pretty 'meh' to some of their recent ones.

    it's "meh" compared to homemade backyard brawl videos

    they should've had Hioki fight instead of Kanehara

    Fujita is going to get guillotined in like 2 minutes

    Satoshii ishii is going to beat yoshida handedly. Yoshida hasn't fought seriously in a while I think, plus his age is definitely catching up with him.

    Alistair Overeem vs. Kazuyuki Fujita
    Satoshi Ishii vs. Hidehiko Yoshida

    Is no one excited for Ishii's debut? That was highly talked about for a while.. Takaya vs. Omigawa could be a war. Will be fun to see what Tokoro can do from underneath Sandro.. And any Minowaman fight is a fight I want to watch..

    I think the card looks great.

    But what in the fuck is old as balls Ray Sefo doing coming back to fight? Just be done dude, continue commentating you old saggy fucker.

    DirecTV and DishNetwork.

    How in the fuck do you live without HDNet? It's the best channel on TV. MMA and K1 on ALL of the time, tons of live concerts, good news programming, etc.

    I know no one cares about Nishijima, but i'm pretty entertained by anyone fighting based on boxing alone...his fight with Mark Hunt was pretty nuts

    the only way that these fights could be good is if the mediocreness of one fighter negates the mediocreness of the other fighter, resulting in an exciting fight


    or it could completely go the other direction as well, which is more likely

    this card will be riddled with decisions

    yeah, it would be so much more fun if we went back to the Pride days where you had the most lopsided, piece of shit match ups ever. Fedor vs. Hong Man Choi and Wanderlei Silva vs. Yet ANOTHER Unnamed, Untested Judoka.

    NYE and GPs are the pinnacle of japanese MMA events, and seeing how this NYE event pits Sengoku and DREAM fighters against one another, these matchups really fall flat

    There are some good fights on there but this card is nothing like the previous years imo.
