Yoshiro Maeda! DREAM.12 Next?
Yoshiro Maeda didn’t win in a way he would’ve liked to yesterday in his fight against Kleber Koike at DEEP Osaka Impact. He first got hit by a thumb in the eye, and later in the first round by a knee to the groin, which made him unable to continue. Maeda won by DQ.
While still in pain after the fight he still took the mike and said: “My battle still continues. Is an Osaka event participation next?”, appealing to the DREAM officials at ringside.
Also on the card, a fighter I like, Young “RYO” Choi, won another fight as he stopped Yuya Aikawa by punches in the second round. I would like to see him in bigger events or in a DEEP title fight soon. Could he be a participant in DEEP’s upcoming Light Heavyweight tournament?
