DREAM Lightweight Tournament - Rumor Confirmed

Monday, 5 May 2008

It is official, Aoki is still in the tournament! His fight with Nagata will take place on June 15 in DREAM 4. I have to say that this is a good decision by FEG and I hope he is able to get through that fight uninjured. It is also the first fight announced for the June event.

Great news!
Thanks!

I had one question. Why are Sato's pre-fight videos not allowed in the broadcasts outside of Japan? I noticed the Korean broadcast did not show them, and HDNet didnt as well. HDNet said they are willing to show everything FEG gives them, and I guess those videos are not part of the feed that is given to them. Any insight on this, as it really adds A LOT to the production. Thanks!

Dont you mean that Aoki will fight in DREAM 3?? You said DREAM 4. DREAM 4 is the MW GP.

The fight is pushed back to DREAM 4. Doctors does not allow Aoki to fight in DREAM 3, in order for him to recover, the fight is postponed

Yes!!!

Aoki will still be the favorite to win, as no one left in the tournament can match his submission skills.

I would like to see Alvarez/hansen vs. Aoki in the semis...see if Aoki can submit Hellboy AGAIN!!!
