Friday is finally here, and it arrived just in time to slap all those other days of the week directly in their smug little face. Shark Fights 17 goes down tonight on HDNet and DREAM: Fight for Japan GP will go down hours later. Unfortunately, HDNet will not be airing it live, so expect results to eventually trickle down the interweb and ultimately to the front page of MiddleEasy. In the meantime, enjoy your Friday Morning MMA Link Party. Cups are on the table. Please, do not spill.
