DREAM Title Fight Announced! Fedor Vs. Aoki Exhibition Set
Gegard Mousasi has relinquished his DREAM Middleweight title to move up to the Light Heavyweight division. To crown a new champion it was announced today that Ronaldo Jacare and Jason “Mayhem” Miller will fight for the second time at DREAM.9 in May. Jacare defeated Miller last year in the quarterfinals of the DREAM Middleweight GP.
DREAM EP Sasahara said that the plan is to announce another DREAM.9 fight tomorrow. He says they have a “secret plan” since the event is going to air on prime time on TBS.
Also announced today, Fedor Emelianenko will face DREAM’s Shinya Aoki in an exhibition match at the DEEP M-1 Challenge event in Japan on April 29th.
Update: I’m not sure if Fedor vs. Aoki is a sambo exhibition, it could also be just an exhibition with sambo-like rules. The detailed rules will be revealed like a day before the fight.
Update #2: Fedor vs. Aoki will be 3-5 minutes long. On GBRing.com it says Exhibition Sambo-Rules.
Update #3: The card will consist of 10 fights with 4 of them being GP fights, 1 title fight, and 5 normal fights.
