"KID" Yamamoto NOT Fighting in DREAM in March

Monday 19 January 2009

Japanese media is writing today that "Kid" Yamamoto's knee injury is not yet fully healed, and he will not be able to participate in the upcoming DREAM event in March. This is of course another blow to DREAM who needs their Japanese star to return as soon as possible.

Currently he is training at 50%, and he does not want to risk possible injuries by stepping into the ring too early. This means that he is possibly out of the featherweight GP, but I have a feeling FEG will be able to keep a spot open for him. Currently he is rebuilding the muscles around his right knee, and working on his striking.

"Kid" is hinting at a return after April, but with all the injuries I am thinking it might go even longer than that. I hope we get to see a fully fit "Kid" soon, and DREAM needs the ratings that would bring too.
