4/5 DREAM 8 - Fight Order

Thursday, 2 April 2009

FEG have announced the fight order for the event taking place in Nagoya on April 8.

The main event will be the re-match between the Japanese stars Hayato "Mach" Sakurai and Shinya Aoki.

Other than that, there were some fights I was expecting higher... The focus is clearly on the GPs, and the event starts with the non-tournament fights.

DREAM have put together a 10 fight card for this event, but more importantly I think the non-tournament fights on this one looks very interesting. Sakurai vs. Aoki is a big fight, add to that the Kharitonov vs. Monson another fight that could be the main-event on just about any card around the world. We will also have the return of "Shaolin" and "Ninja" to Japan, and the featherweight GP fight between Tokoro and "DJ Taiki" is a early pick for fight of the night. In addition, we also have the GP aspect.

This should be a very good event!

10. Main-Event: Hayato "Mach" Sakurai 34-8-2 vs. 20-3-0 Shinya Aoki
