No rest for weary MMA fans.

If UFC 79: "Nemesis" and the IFL Grand Prix Finals didn't quench your thirst for combat sports this weekend then there's still more to come.

Yarennoka! — also known as "Fedor Returns" -- will be broadcast live on the HDNet network at 6 a.m. ET on Monday, December 31. It's super early, however, there's no excuse not to set the DVR today if you receive the HDNet network.

The New Year's Eve show will take place at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. Pride FC Heavyweight Champion Fedor Emelianenko will headline the show against the gigantic Korean, Hong Man Choi.

The rest of the card is filled with a nice line up of fights, which would have been made even better if Gesias "JZ Calvan" Calvancante was going up against Aoki as originally thought.

Regardless, there are some great fighters competing on this card. Catch it if you can.

Update: Results are in -- click the jump below to get the skinny.

In shocking news (sarcasm), Fedor Emelianenko defeated Hong Man Choi via submission (armbar) in round one. By all accounts it seemed rather easy as expected.

Here are the rest of the results:

Shinya Aoki defeated Bu-Kyung Jung via unanimous decision
Hayato "Mach" Sakurai defeated Hidehiko Hasegawa via unanimous decision
Kazuo Misaki defeated Yoshihiro Akiyama via technical knockout (strikes) in round one
Mitsuhiro Ishida defeats Gilbert Melendez via unanimous decision
Makoto Takimoto defeated Murilo Bustamante via split decision
Tatsuya Kawajiri defeated Luiz Azeredo via unanimous decision
