11 Participants Announced! Detailed DREAM 2009 Schedule
11 participants for the DREAM Featherweight GP were announced today. The only surprises are Hiroyuki Takaya and very talented Greco-Roman Wrestler Joe Warren who received a two-year doping suspension in 2007 when he failed a drug test (for the second time) which made him miss the 2008 Olympics. The rest are as expected and it looks like another quality Featherweight GP.
Update #1: DREAM EP Sasahara said that the participation of KID is still undecided. If he participates he will probably be seeded into the second round. If he doesn’t, there will be 8 FWGP fights in March.
Update #2: The weight of the GP will be announced next week. It will most likely be around 63-63.5 kg.
