DREAM.1 is barely even a memory, but that hasn’t stopped FEG from announcing more information about DREAM.2 on April 29th. I can’t tell you how fucking sweet it is to have a big Japanese promotion again that’s as regular as All Bran. Fight fans might bitch and whine about ‘budo’ and how this ‘isn’t the same as PRIDE’, but overall I was happy with the first DREAM. While it was no OWGP Final, it was still just as good if not better than your average Bushido event (which is basically what this first show was).
Anyways, back to DREAM2. Here’s the lineup thus far:
OLYMPIA DREAM.2 Middleweight GP 2008 1st Round
Date: April 29th, 2008
Place: Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan
Middleweight GP Participants:
Yoon Dong Sik
I’m sure many people are going to be dissapointed at the fact that there’s no whiteys on the card – Denis Kang comes the closest, since he’s a half-French half-Korean born off the coast of Newfoundland. Me, I’m just hoping that Minowaman actually ends up in the tournament bracket for this one against a legitimate fighter. Also keep in mind that the opening bracket consists of 16 fighters, so I’m sure there’ll be a decent number of Brazilians and Europeans added down the road.
