  • Lee Tae Hyun has dropped around 10 kg since his Pride debut (he has trained in Russia and Yoshida Dojo since then).
  • The weightlimit for the DREAM Featherweight division is still not set (the fight on this card is at 63 kg).
  • Ralek might get the takedown (which he needs to win) by being almost 7 kg larger.

Sherdog has a video and an article from the press conference here.

#7: Lightweight GP Lottery

The lottery will be held after the fourth fight tommorrow. Kawajiri, Uno, Aoki/Nagata and a representative for Alvarez will stand in the ring and choose balls with numbers in them. The reason they will do this lottery is because the votes for semifinals on the DREAM website were very close.

#6: Pre-Dream Multimedia Part II

Kakutou Ou (Hand-To-Hand Fighting/Grappling King) is a Japanese TV program mostly about K-1 and DREAM. Here are the two latest episode which contained a lot of DREAM.4 previewing, they are worth watching even if you don’t know Japanese. I especially liked Tokoro’s segment on the June 3rd show and the Jacare/Mayhem preview on the June 10th show. Thanks to the original uploader.
