4/5 DREAM 8 - "Shaolin" Returns

Wednesday, 1 April 2009

FEG said that there might be an additional fight on the DREAM 8 card, and it was announced today. Vitor "Shaolin" Ribeiro is the latest star added to the DREAM roster, and he returns after almost 2 years away. His last fight was against JZ Calvan September 2007.

In his return the 19-2 Brazilian will take on Japanese wrestler Katsuhiko Nagata. Nagata lost in the 2nd round in the DREAM lightweight tournament last year. After that he has fought twice, in ZST and Cage Force. The results have not been good, Nagata went 1-2-1 in 2008 and "Shaolin" will go into this fight as a huge favorite.
