'Dynamite 2008!!' will not be available live in the US

The 19-fight "Dynamite!! 2008" card will not be available live in North America.

It appeared the event would be carried via a live stream on, but that's not the case, Mike Kogan of FEG USA told today.

"So unfortunately as of right now, there is no preferred way to watch this event at all," Kogan said., which describes itself as an "Online World Entertainment Channel," will instead provide a stream of the event beginning Jan. 6 for $29.95. The company was unable to acquire a satellite in time to connect the live feed from Japan.

Kogan told that FEG was working with HDNet to bring "Dynamite!!" to US fans through HDNet Fights, but by the time they were ready to make the deal, programming deadlines were missed.
