Allah be praised, HDNet has confirmed that ‘Genki Desu Ka Omisoka 2011’ aka ‘Fight for Japan: How are you! New Year!’, aka ‘That goofy MMA / pro wrestling NYE event’ will be aired live and uncut in it’s entire 9 hours of glory. If you were one of the 7 people who stayed up to watch last year’s equivalent event you may remember some serious bullshit involving a two hour tape delay. Not gonna happen this year, which is nice since it made witty banter via the Fightlinker chat and twitter nearly impossible without dreaded spoilers.
It all goes down at 1AM, just a short hour or two after Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem are set to slam together like giant horny alpha bucks.
