7/20 DREAM 10 - Welterweight Reserve Fight Announced

Thursday 16 July 2009

Its only days before the event, and only now have they announced the welterweight tournament reserve fight. DEEP champion Seichi Ikemoto will take on the undefeated Tarec Saffiedine. Saffiedine fought on the War of Gods card on May 30, where he won a quick subimsson victory, but Ikemoto should be his best opponent to date. Ikemoto have fought in both Pride and DREAM, but does not hold a win in either organization. He will be looking to add one here, one that would keep him in the tournament.

DREAM have also announced plans to add one more fight to this card, making it a total of 8 fights. In my eyes its a bit thin, but every fight on this card so far is looking very good.

Welterweight Tournament:
Final: Sakurai/Zaromskis vs. Galvao/High
Semi-final 1: Hayato "Mach" Sakurai 35-8-2 vs. 9-2-0 Marius Zaromskis
Semi-final 2: Andre Galvao 3-0-0 vs. 7-1-0 Jason High
Reserve Fight: Seichi Ikemoto vs. 6-0-0 Tarec Saffiedine

Non-Tournament Fights:
Light: Shinya Aoki 20-4-0 vs. 20-2-0 Victor Ribeiro
Light: Katsunori Kikuno 11-1-1 vs. 6-3-1 Andre "Dida" Amade
Middle: Melvin Manhoef 23-5-1 vs. 16-1-0 Paulo Filho
