Awakened! DREAM.1

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

DREAM.1 is over and it wasn’t the best of events, there were a few boring fights and the main event didn’t end the way we wanted, but that’s how it is sometimes. You probably know by now where to find the videos of the fights, so let’s look ahead, at the Middleweight GP opening round on April 29th…

Seven fighters were present and announced for the GP during DREAM.1, they were: Kazushi Sakuraba, Yoon Dong Sik, Yoshihiro Akiyama, Minowaman, Kiyoshi Tamura, Kin Taiei and Masakatsu Funaki. Also, Kiyoshi Tamura and Denis Kang are on the event poster, so expect them to participate.

    If I were Sakuraba I wouldn’t be that intrested in fighting in a tournament either. Not much of an incentive, really…

    Whoever draws Masakatsu Funaki is pretty much given a bye into the second round.

    Hopefully they can grab up more middleweights. How they are going to find 8 more I do not know. And that’s assuming that Sakuraba buys into the tournament structure, along with Kang and Tamura being secured.

    Either way, pretty exicted for anything Dream related. Hopefully Dream.2 will have 2 or 3 good superfights.

    It looks like they are trying to bring a few from eastern Europe. Mamed Khalidov, Zelg Galesic, mayne Kestutis Smirnovas, etc.
