    Awesome. Eight fights announced so far including Mark Hunt’s fight. I wonder how many more they intend to have? It would be nice to see them pass DREAM.1’s count of ten.

    Also, if Diaz vs. Sakurai had remained on this card…and CroCop…what an over the top event this would’ve been.

    I think the plan is 10 fights. They should announce Hunt’s opponent (JLB is the rumor) and the last fight early next week.
