Dream 10 Pics and Fight Summaries

Monday 20 July 2009

Shinya Aoki defeated Victor Ribiero by decision
In a match with almost none of Aoki's signature groundwork. Although the crowd didn't really get into it Aoki was able to shut contian Ribiero well with a bunch of kicks to the right upper arm.

Near the end of the match Aoki did end up on the bottom and tried to put on a leg choke, but Ribiero fought out of it.

After the fight Aoki asked the crowd what they thought of his Muay Thai, which brought on more than a few boos. He then admitted it was not his most exciting match and promised that his next match would have the grappling back.

Jesse Taylor Def. Dong Sik Yoon by TKO
Yoon apparently broke a bone in his leg or ankle with an unlucky landing when he was thrown by Taylor early in the first round.

Paulo Filho Def. Melvin Manhoef
Manhoef pumped up the crowd with his barrage of punches.

Filho, however, was able to cover up long enough to get a takedown and from there put on an arm bar. Manhoef tried to twist out of it, but Filho folowed along and got the tap.

Katsunori Kikuno Def. Andre "Dida" Amade

The fighters did a bit of eyeballing each other at the start of the match. After some striking on both sides they started cirlcing, looking for a gap in the other's guard for almost a minute.

After getting a warning they both got alittle more aggressive and Kikuno's crescent kick was able to sap alot of "Dida's" power and he followed up pounding from the back position until the referee stop.

Jason High Def. Andre Galvao by decision

Some people say that this fight could have gone the other way considering how long Galvao was able to keep control in the second half of round 1. Galvao looked like he was about to get a tap from High on a heel hold but High was able to escape.

Jason High's strikes in the beginning of the match helped carry him through for the win.

Marius Zaromskis Def. Hayato "Mach" Sakurai by TKO Round 1
Zaromskis continued his Street Fighter themed entrance .

Although "Mach" opted for a more orthodox the fans were plenty pumped. Both fights started straight out of the gates firing off bursts of punches at each-other.

After a doctor check for bleeding over Sakurai's eye Zaromskis landed a high kick and followed up with a pound that resulted in a referre stop TKO.

Tarec Saffiedine Def. Seichi Ikemoto by decision
