I'm one of the very few. Gilbert never hurt Aoki or ever had him in any kind of danger, he just overwhelmingly outpointed him. I think Aoki grabs him and holds on this time.

New match added to the card:

Quote:
A title fight and rematch between DREAM featherweight champion Bibiano Fernandes (8-2 MMA, 5-0 DREAM) and Hiroyuki Takaya (14-8-1 MMA, 5-2 DREAM) is now official for the year-end "DREAM!! 2010" event.

It's the first officially announced bout for the Dec. 31 fight card.

DREAM "Dynamite!! 2010" takes place at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, and is expected to air on HDNet in the U.S.

The show continues Japan's and DREAM's tradition of blockbuster year-end shows. Many other notables are expected to be part of the card.

Fernandes brings a seven-fight win streak to the bout. In 2009, he won the organization's season-long featherweight grand prix and topped Takaya via split decision in the finale.

Earlier this year at DREAM.13, he made his first successful title defense and narrowly edged former champ Joachim Hansen. However, he's been on the sidelines since then due to alleged issues with DREAM officials paying him.

The 30-year-old Brazilian-jiu-jitsu black belt now again meets Takaya. Following the title loss to Fernandes, the Japanese WEC vet suffered a TKO loss to Michihiro Omigawa. However, he's since rebounded and earned a second shot at the belt with back-to-back first round knockouts of Hansen and Chase Beebe.

As MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) reported on Thursday, "Dynamite!! 2010" also could feature an MMA-rules bout between Gegard Mousasi (30-3-1 MMA, 8-0 DREAM) and K-1 kickboxer Jerome Le Banner (3-1-1 MMA, 0-0 DREAM).

There have also been rumors that Asashoryu will make his MMA debut at this event. Considering his sumo career and his family background I think he'll do good in MMA. He will at least do better than Akebono Taro and Sentoryu Miller!

That is true considering that Akebono went 0-4 in MMA before dropping out for prowrestling and that Sentoryu Miller is 6-10-1. I think it would be an interesting match to see Akebono and Sentoryu fight each other and probably commical. Maybe Asashoryu coming onto the scene may bring Akebono out of his MMA retirment or Sentoryu into the lime light!

The latest fights added to the Dyanamite card inclue a weltherweight title fight. DREAM's champ Zaromskis vs... Sakuraba!?

Quote:
"The Gracie Hunter" returns on New Year's Eve.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned from sources close to the event that MMA legend Kazushi Sakuraba (26-14-1 MMA, 3-3 DREAM) has been granted a title shot against DREAM welterweight champ Marius Zaromskis (13-5 MMA, 3-0 DREAM) at the year-end "DREAM!! 2010" event.

DREAM "Dynamite!! 2010" takes place at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, and airs on HDNet in the U.S.

The company has yet to officially announce the matchup.

The 41-year-old Sakuraba enters the contest on a two-fight loss streak. The 27-time PRIDE veteran, who also fought twice (on the same night) under the UFC banner, suffered a submission loss to Jason "Mayhem" Miller in September, and he was also defeated by Ralek Gracie via decision.

The loss to Ralek brought Sakuraba's career tally against the famed Gracie family down to 4-2. Original UFC champion Royce also defeated Sakuraba via decision in 2007. Prior to the skid, Sakuraba earned his nickname by defeating Ryan, Renzo, Royce and Royler Gracie in a span of just 13 months. Sakuraba also holds wins over an array of notables that includes Vito Belfort, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, Guy Mezger, Ikuhisa Minowa, Carlos Newton, Kevin Randleman and Ken Shamrock, among others.

Meanwhile, Zaromskis looks to rebuild his status after suffering two-straight defeats and a no contest result in three fights in the U.S.

Zarmoskis came to the U.S. on the strength of five-stright victories – a run that included four wins under the DREAM banner and saw the Lithuanian striker claim DREAM's welterweight title. "The Whitemare" struggled while competing for Strikeforce, though, and suffered TKO losses to Nick Diaz and Evangelista "Cyborg" Santos. The no contest came just six seconds into Zarmoskis' November fight with Waachim Spiritwolf when an eyepoke forced a quick stoppage.

And a lightweight Strikeforce/DREAM showdown between two other lightweights this time, Thomson vs Crusher:

Quote:
Fans won't get a chance to see Gilbert Melendez vs. Shinya Aoki at Dynamite!!, but there will be an important lightweight DREAM vs. Strikeforce fight on the card after all.

Josh Thomson vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri has been signed for the Dec. 31 event, MMA Fighting has learned from sources. The bout will take place at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

Fighting and Entertainment Group, the parent company of DREAM, is expected to officially announce the fight in the coming days.

Thomson, 18-3 (1 no contest), has won two in a row since losing the Strikeforce 155-pound title to Melendez last December. He most recently defeated "JZ" Cavalcante in October.

The fight will mark just the second time in Thomson's 10-year career that he will be competing in Japan. He defeated Daisuke Sugie via submission at PRIDE Bushido 8.

Kawajiri, 26-6-2, most recently lost to Aoki at DREAM.15. Prior to that loss, "Crusher" had won four fights in a row.

In November, Thomson told the Las Vegas Sun that he wanted to fight Kawajiri.

"That's a fight I might kick back and wait for. I've wanted that fight forever. He's somebody that excites me."

Bibiano Fernandes is scheduled to defend his DREAM featherweight title against Hiroyuki Takaya on the card, along with a whole host of other uannounced fights.
