Awakened! DREAM 2009 Plans

Dynamite!! is over and it was a good event. The DREAM fighters who fought under K-1 rules did awesome. It was a real pity that Hansen couldn’t fight but hopefully we will see the fight in a DREAM event in 2009 for the belt. Speaking of DREAM in 2009, the initial plans have already been spoken about…

  • As expected there will be a Featherweight GP and a Welterweight GP in 2009. It is not clear yet if the Welterweight GP will be 8 or 16-man, but it will most likely revolve around Shinya Aoki and Hayato “Mach” Sakurai.
  • The first DREAM event of 2009 will be held in early March. The Featherweight GP might start at this event.
  • There will be around the same number of DREAM events in 2009 as in 2008.
  • Champions in the Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight divisions are planned to be crowned in 2009.

FEG president Tanigawa also said that there were plans of holding the new years eve event together with World Victory Road but in the end it didn’t happen.
