4/29 DREAM 2 - Fights Announced

Friday, 18 April 2008

Most of the Middleweight tournament fights are now annouced with 4 fights announced today, and there will be some surprise additions in this. There are also some fighters that were expected.

Only 1 more fight in the tournament... Will someone get a "free" pass to the 2nd round here too?

Annouced today (all tournament fights):
Ikuhisa Minowa 39-27-8 vs. 2-2-0 Taiei Kin
Magomed Sultanakhmadov 4-1-0 vs. 7-3-0 Zelg “Benkei” Galesic
Yoon Dong Sik 3-4-0 vs. 7-10-0 Shungo Oyama
Ronaldo Jacare vs. 16-6-0 Frank Trigg

Previously announced:
Tournament fights
Kazushi Sakuraba 23-10-1 vs. Andrews Nakahara
Kiyoshi Tamura 28-14-0 vs. 38-12-1 Masakatsu Funaki
Denis Kang 29-9-1 vs. 20-2-1 Gegard Mousasi

Shinya Aoki 14-2-0 vs. 14-1-1 JZ Calvan

Also rumored for this card is Nick Diaz, he had agreed to fight Marcelo Garcia but that did not work out. Hopefully DREAM finds an opponent for him.


Akiyama is gettting his knee checked, there should be an official next week but he might not be able to participate. FEG has now also denied that Akiyama will get a pass to the 2nd round like Caol Uno did.

Haven;t Daniel Accacio and Yoshihiro Akiyama both been confirmed for this event?

These are all the fights that are official. There are so many rumored fighters and fights that its hard to keep track of, but I would be surprised if Akiyama is not in this tournament. Then there would be 3-4 possible fighters for the last spot.

Its Japan, last minute changes/announcements will happen...

Maybe Akiyama vs Misaki????

I hear they are triyng to bring Misaki at any price??

Maybe that's why they have one unannounced fight. Doubt he will be in DREAM though, after they judged his NYE fight a No contest. Think he prefers Sengoku after taht...

Akiyama's knee is still messed up from the million leg kicks Misaki put on him, there's an article about it on Kamipro
