10/6 DREAM 11 - Fights Added

Friday 18 September 2009

FEG have made a couple of changes to the DREAM 11 card. It is now official that JZ Calvan is out of the fight with Daisuke Nakamura, and they are looking for a replacement.

Kawajiri is returning to MMA after being unsuccessful in his last K-1 fight against Masato. He will take on Melchor "Barracuda", "Barracuda" will be the underdog here but they have a strong MMA community in Guam and I would not underestimate him.

Not unexpectedly, Bob Sapp have replaced Gegard Mousasi.

The event also has the Featherweight tournament and the reserve fight between D.J. Taiki and Kazuyuki Miyata. D.J. Taiki was unable to continue in he tournament due to injury, Miyata is cutting down to featherweight and should be a beast at this weight. This is my pick for fight of the night.

Light: Tatsuya Kawajiri 24-5-2 vs. 2-2-0 Melchor "Barracuda" Manibusan

Super-Hulk Tournament Semi-Final:
Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou 6-4-0 vs. 10-5-1 Bob Sapp

Ikuhisa Minowa 42-30-8 vs. 2-2-0 Hong Choi Man
