Blockbuster MMA event Strikeforce comes to Japan via live webcast

TOKYO —

Chicago’s Sears Centre Arena will explode with a high-profile event on Saturday Nov 7, showcasing four main bouts, pitting the legendary Fedor Emelianenko against undefeated challenger Brett Rogers, as well as Gegard Mousasi vs. Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, and others.

The good news for fans in Japan is that the action simultaneously begins Sunday, Nov 8 at 11 a.m. JST. Get ready to experience web TV like you never have before. The CBS nationwide broadcast will be transmitted by satellite to Japan and streamed on the Internet to bring a high quality, full-screen experience—free of charge.

This is the first time an event by partner American leagues Strikeforce and M-1 Global will be brought to fans in Japan live on the Internet at http://japan.m-1global.com. Although the website is accessible globally, video will be viewable only to residents of Japan.

Related news and videos can be found on the CBS Sports, Strikeforce, and M-1 Global websites.

David Adams is a 13-year resident of Japan who works in the communication management, sports marketing and online video businesses. www.gotchamedia.jp Send him an invitation on LinkedIn.

    Fedor better not lose...or else he can kiss his career goodbye. His refusal to join UFC without co-promotion only works if he keeps winning and only if he can find opponents.

    yeah terebiko, you're probably right.. no one cares about it... maybe that's why MMA and K-1 get five to seven hours of airtime on every New Year's Eve.

    There was a significant number of people watching the live. Anybody who missed it, the fights will be up later today on VOD for 30 days- if you are in Japan.
