DREAM Featherweight GP Participants - Rumored and Confirmed fighters

Monday, 26 January 2009

There are a lot of speculation around who will participate in the DREAM featherweight GP. It seems to me that the weight will depend on "Kid", who I am sure they will make room for.

There is some other inside information that has come my way too, that I will share. DEEP 40 will have some qualifer fights. Some have already happened and so there are 2-3 participants that are ready.

Chase Beebe has announced his intentions to sign with Dream and participate, and this should be a very good addition.

Here are the fighters that I know are in:
-Takafumi Otsuka (confirmed by several sources, his fight in DEEP 39 was a qualifier)
-Chase Beebe
-Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto

Fighting at DEEP 40 to get in:
-Shoji Maruyama vs. Daiki "DJ Taiki" Hata
-A DREAM lightweight tournament participant will drop down in weight (HUGE surprise to me, if its true) and fight a qualifier at this event.

So, that is some of what I know.

the DREAM fighter will be having their qualifying match on DEEP 40?

There is with out a doubt a relationship between DREAM and DEEP. It is why you have seen fighters like Shibata taking DEEP fights, and from what I see it will become more common.

Sengoku is using Pancrase for the same purpose.

i wish shibata would stay in DEEP for a while.
