12/31 Dynamite - Alvarez finally take on Aoki

Friday 12 December 2008

First up, appologies for being very late with this. I was busy yesterday and didn't have time to get the post written up. Hopefully, it will lead to better things down the road though.

The fights added are interesting, to say the least. Shinya Aoki was meant to face Eddie Alvarez in this year's Lightweight Tournament final. That didn't happen, and there should be a lot at stake in this fight! My guess is that the winner gets a shot at "HellBoy"'s title early next year.

The other fight announced is also MMA rules and will feature 2 K-1 stars. Of course Mark Hunt have gone on to improve his resume by including both Pride and Hustle ProWresting to that. Hunt's last performance in DREAM was something he would like to put behind him, and it will be interesting if he is able to bounce back against LeBanner. Based on it being MMA rules, Hunt might come in as the favorite, but his comback against Alistair Overeem left more questions than answers. Lets hope we get some answers in this one!
