    Tatame writes that Jacare will fight on DREAM.9, it will be for the belt and the opponent will be most likely Jason Mayhem Miller http://www.tatame.com/2009/04/14/Jacare-vs-Miller-title-fight-possible-at-Dream-9
    Also Slash on kakutougi forum writes that Zelg Galesic will probably fight on DREAM.9 http://forum.kakutougi.info/showthread.php?p=194924#post194924

    It makes me wonder even more what Sasahare meant saying “superdreadnought fights”. The rest of the card is planned as 2 normal fights and 4 superdreadnought ones. Those 2 normal fights were expected to be JZ Calvan vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri and Gegard Mousasi vs. either Sokoudjou or Paulo Filho. Now we also have pretty much confirmed that Jacare will fight on DREAM.9. That makes 3 normal fights, not 2, unless on of these fights is the aforementioned superdreadnought fight. One of my first guesses was that it will be 2 normal fights and 4 title fights planned for DREAM.9 but the part in which Sasahara said that those 4 sepcial fights will make even people who never watched mma interested would suggest that indeed he meant HW or even SHW matches. What Tanigawa and Sasahara have planned, that is the question.

    I’m guessing 4 interesting fights, they don’t have to be between the best or freakiest fighters, just something for everyone. But when they separate them from 2 normal fights like that it feels more like a tournament. We will see though.
