7/21 DREAM 5 - Hunt's Opponent annouced

Saturday 19 July 2008

From HDNet's site, it looks like Hunt's oppnent is Alisair Overeem.

I have not seen a Japanese source for this yet, but looks like that's the fight missing on the card. Should be a good fight, Overeem coming off a victory in DREAM 4, and Hunt returning to the MMA ring.

RougueMag.com has an interview with Hunt before his flight out to Japan. He among other things, he says that in the original contract there was a fight with Fedor this year. Let's see if it happens.

Either way, Monday is the big event and I am heading down to Osaka tomorrow.

I am seeing this fight confirmed in Japanese media as well now, Hunt vs. Overeem is on!

Also, looks like they are still looking for an opponent to face Joseph Benavidez, lets hope they find someone.
