DREAM.12! Kikuno Vs. Alvarez Official!
The first two fights for DREAM.12 have been announced and they are high-level ones. In two Lightweight fights, DEEP Lightweight champion Katsunori Kikuno will take on Eddie Alvarez and Won Sik “Parky” Park will battle newly crowned Cage Force Lightweight champion Kuniyoshi Hironaka in a fight which I think might be a little too early for the young Korean.
Also announced as a participant of the card, Korean Myeon Ho Bae, who is 7-1 in his last 8, will make his DREAM debut.
Update: The fights will be fought in a hexagon cage and they will be 3 5 minute rounds(NO!!!).
Update #2: The current plan is to hold one special cage event like DREAM.12 each year from 2010 and onward.
Date: October 25th, 2009
