  1. word is the show is delayed 3 freaking hours due to technical issues. I’m gonna stick around for 30 minutes to figure this shit out and if it’s true I’m going to bed. ;-/

    Japan. Sheesh

  2. Scott White says:

    The televised portion of the show doesn’t start until 4 AM EST.

  3. Zack says:

    So it starts 2 hours before Yarrenoka, or Yarrenoka is on tape delay on HDnet?

  4. Zach Arnold says:

    K-1 started prelims at 4 PM at the Osaka Dome, DSE starts at 6 PM in Saitama (1 AM PST/4 AM EST) and goes head-to-head with K-1’s TV broadcast (starting at 6 PM JST).

  14. PizzaChef says:

    I always fucking Dynamite! Cause the crowds are always DEAD. No fucking atmosphere at all.

  15. Fujin says:

    Thanks for the results, guys. I was curious about this event.

  16. Andrej says:

    Just a thought, maybe Minowman, Ikuhisa Minowa or whatever you want to call him should fight in his own weight division. Just a simple idea ofcourse.

  17. liger05 says:

    nice job by sakuraba. Did he wear any mask on his entrance?

  18. Wouldn’t mind seeing the Ackah/Musashi fight, but I can’t find it anywhere.

  19. Mike David (Euthyphro) says:

    Saku did indeed wear a mask during his entrance. Couldn’t tell whose mask, but he came out with a double wearing the same mask. It was easily the best entrance of the night, surpassing Kid Yamamoto and Bobby Ologun.

  20. Zack says:

    Thanks for the vids!

  21. Mike David (Euthyphro) says:

    I’ve got some videos of my own:

  22. Zack says:

    Thanks Mike! Kid looked a lot smaller than Yahya.

  23. The Gaijin says:

    I wonder, if the numbers for Sak/Funaki are any good and taking into consideration Sak’s current physical state, whether there’s any chance we’ll see a Sak/Rickson NYE ’08?

    Seems like the perfect time for Rickson, which would be about the only time he’d actually accept the fight.

  24. ttt says:

    Mike:

    great work with the PbP on fightlinker and the vids here, the yamamoto fight doesn’t seem to be online anywhere else, excellent camera work too, not like most homemade videos with shakey hands
