7/21 DREAM 5 - "Kid" Fighting

Tuesday 3 June 2008

July 21 is the finals for the DREAM Lightweight Tournament. These fights alone should justify the enterance fee, but today Sherdog has an article confirming one of the other fights.

Japanese favorite and definitly one of the biggest stars in the MMA circus will take on Joseph Benavidez who is undefeated.

NoB is also reporting that DREAM 5 will mark the return of DREAM to Prime Time TV in Japan. And we are likely to find even more big stars on this card.

Another thing that came out, that I am not happy about... FEG is saying they want
an open draw to determine the match-ups for the Lightweight Semi-finals... Why ask the fans to vote if you are just going to disregard it? Maybe the vote didn't go the way they wanted...

Anyway, announced for DREAM 5:

Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto 17-1-0 vs. 7-0-0 Joseph Benavidez

Lightweight Tournament Semi-Finalists:
Caol Uno 25-10-4
Eddie Alvarez 14-1-0
Tatsuya Kawajiri 22-4-2
Shinya Aoki/Katsuhiko Nagata
