“DREAM: New Year! 2011!” Fighters All Make Weight

DREAM: New Year! 2011! is official after all fighters on the 17-fight card made weight in Saitama, Japan earlier this week. HDNet will televise the entire card, live, beginning Saturday morning at 1 a.m. ET (Friday night for those late-night people).

In the main event Fedor Emelianenko will collide with Satoshi Ishii. Fedor hit the scales at just over 233 pounds, while Ishii, an Olympic medalist for Japan, came in at 214.

This will be the only time to see the complete card straight through, as HDNet will break it down into smaller television shows in the future. Several pro wrestling bouts are also slated for the event, including the likes of Josh Barnett and Tim Sylvia, but those fighters did not have to weigh in.
