DREAM.12 Update! Sakuraba Vs. Galesic

Three and one modified fights have been added to the white cage which will be set up just six days from now.

Zelg “Benkei” Galesic has got a change in opponent as he will now face Kazushi Sakuraba instead of Melvin Manhoef, who is out due to injury.

Katsuyori Shibata returns to take on fellow pro-wrestler Tokimitsu Ishizawa (Kendo Kashin) who is looking to get his second ever MMA victory.

In a Welterweight fight, champion Marius Zaromskis will face Korean Myeon Ho Bae in what looks to be a non-title affair.

And finally, in a Featherweight fight, ZST Bantamweight champion Keisuke Fujiwara will take on Tomoya Miyashita.

Update: It looks like Overeem’s fight will be the last one, they’re currently in the final stages of securing an opponent. Daisuke Nakamura’s participation will most likely not happen again.

Update #2: I like some of the added fights but some fans in Japan (people who have already bought tickets, ppv, etc.) aren’t too happy with them advertising fighters on their posters/videos, and not delivering. Especially this event and DREAM.11 there have been a lot of this going on.

Also, Sanae Kikuta recently said in an interview that he wants to fight Kiyoshi Tamura on NYE. Tamura isn’t on this card, Nakamura will most likely not be on it. Is something going on between Tamura’s camp and FEG? Will Kikuta fight on Dynamite!! this NYE?

    i agree, they screwed Nakamura and what happend to Tamura and Nakahara? lame sauce

    Katsuyori Shibata vs. Tokimitsu Ishizawa is a waste

    Keisuke Fujiwara vs. Tomoya Miyashita is interesting tho

    Likely with Tamura, money issues. Not sure with Nakahara and Nakamura.

    Yeah, Tamura himself said he knows nothing about a fight on DREAM.12 and the Zaromskis clash should be treated as a rumor. Don’t think that at this stage Tamura is cheap to have on a card either and above all, he wouldn’t have fought on both DREAM.12 and Dynamite!! and it’s better to have him on the latter. Having in mind all of this I would say; not enough money and not to good scheduling are the reasons.

    Nakahara was negotiating from what I read. Wonder if he may fight Marius on NYE? DREAM 11 and 12 were too little time apart.

    Well, is not the best card. But i hope they get a Overeem oponent.

    The best:

    Kikuno vs Alvarez
    Maeda vs Bebee
    Filho vs Sik

    Man…I’m really bummed. This card didn’t shape up how I was hoping. Losing Manhoef/Galesic sucks. Zaromskis vs. someone I’m not familiar with is kind of a let down. Ah well.

    They need to give overeem a good opponent for him to pown, for this card to shape up. The card is not as good as I expected, but I’m sure it will be a decent event. Dream Rocks!

    Keisuke looks like a Kawajiri if he was in a J-dorama.

    hopefully they get Mighty Mo or Sergei or Monson or some good match up for Overeem just for the Manhoef letdowm. but NYE is just around the corner!

    sakuraba has no chance against galesik, they should put him a different opponent, he is going to get hurt
