Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member
of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com
blog. This week, Breen is joined by FightOpinion.com founder Zach Arnold.
New Year's Eve just passed and the only show the MMA show that the
Japanese fight industry offered up was the anemic Inoki Bom-Ba-Ye
2013 card. With this in mind, Breen and Arnold reflect on New
Year's Eve in Japan and its crucial role in MMA history, recalling
some of the greatest and strangest fights from Pride, K-1, Inoki
and others and how combat sports came to occupy such an important
part in Japan's biggest night of TV watching.
