7/21 DREAM 5 - Hideo Tokoro Not able to Fight???

Friday, 18 July 2008

Hideo Tokoro was in a traffic accident on Wednesday afternoon. He was rear-ended but it does not sound too serious. However, he will have a medical check and it will be announced today or tomorrow whether he will be able to fight.

This could turn out to be a big blow to DREAM 5, there are 8 fights confirmed on th the card with Mark Hunt still being without an opponent. Lets hope they dont make Yamazaki fight Hunt...
