FEG have announced the fight order for DREAM 12, which will take place in the White Cage in Osaka. Personally, I am really looking forward to seeing how that looks and there are some very interesting fights on the card too.
The main event this time goes to the heavyweight battle between Alistair Overeem and James Thompson. Overeem have been looking great lately, and is therefore a huge favorite, but Thompson always gives it a 100% and it will be an entertaining fight.
Personally, I am really looking forward to seeing DEEP champion Katsunori Kikuno take on Eddie Alvarez. I think it is the best matchup of this event, and it should be a very competitive fight.
It is also confirmed that Tarec Saffiedine will step in for Paulo Filho on short notice. No easy fight for Dong and it is another fight to look forward to on this card.
