DREAM Featherweight GP In 2009?! Who Will Akiyama Face On NYE?

DREAM Featherweight GP In 2009?

There was a Hiroyuki Takaya interview in a new MMA magazine in Japan called Real Battle Talk. It says that DREAM’s intentions is to hold a Featherweight GP next year with 8 Japanese and 8 foreign fighters. Takaya says that the limit is 63 kg and that it is difficult for him. However, he goes on to say that he is grateful that SENGOKU went with the 65 kg limit. He also says that the WEC contract is top priority right now.

It says that Yoshiro Maeda and Masakazu Imanari are among the DREAM tournament prospects.

Yoshihiro Akiyama Vs. ?

At the kamipro.com blog it says that as of right now, two candidates are rumored to face Yoshihiro Akiyama on NYE. One of them is Shinya Aoki and the other is not named in the post.

But I wouldn’t be 100% sure just yet that Akiyama will fight on NYE.

    He isn’t supposed, but he might. Unless it is official by the organizations or the fighters themselves, everything here is just rumors or possibilities. Just like this is also just a possibility/rumor.
