Friday, 23 May 2008

I'm kind of worried about sakuraba fighting melvin. I was hoping he'd fight Dong. Oh well.

Yeah... Manhoef could end up being very bad for his career...

Hope he does well though, if it goes past the first round, or even the first 5 minutes I think it could get interesting.

what about the rumored Crocop v Lebanner fight?

There has been no official mention of Crocop fighting. But there has been rumors of injuries... I have a feeling he will be in the next Dream, but there is nothing official.

Yeah I agree. If he could bring it late into the fight and submit him that would be awesome!!!

As a Sakuraba fan this is the worst possible fight :(
Melwin is gonna pummel him
