I don't think that's the plan. Maybe some knockdown rules like what happens in Shooto. But I maybe wrong!

You got a link to back that up because Dana White said they signed him and they wouldn't sign a guy who still has fights left with somebody else. I am 90% positive right now that Kid is UFC bound and has no obligations left with Dream.

Either I read an article wrong or the article I read was just trumped by the one you were talking about. Either way I read the same article and you are right. It looks like the Kid is UFC bound!

Melendez vs Aoki 2 is a waste. Aoki obviously was outclassed in his own supposed realm of superiority.

Also: Sakuraba is a badass mofo...but why exactly is he fighting for the Dream WW title if he's on a two fight losing streak. No sense is made...unless! Sakuraba has in fact upgraded to Chuck Norris status, and in fact won the fights with Miller and Gracie on sheer badassitude...

Well technically Melendez never went into Aoki's realm cause he refused to go to the ground with him. As for Sakuraba, him fighting for the title definately doesn't make sense. Then again alot of what the Japanese do doesn't make sense!

More crazy fight news for Dynamite!!, though it looks like this one is actually happening and not just a rumor. Daniel Herbertson at MMAFighting reports that Shinya Aoki will face the K-1 MAX 2010 Japan champion Yuichiro Nagashima as part of the year end show. With Aoki being a Dream champion and Nagashima a MAX champion, the big question of course is - under which set of rules? The answer: both, as the bout will alternate between rounds of K-1 and MMA rules.

How this fight goes depends largely on how they start. If round 1 is MMA, then Nagashima is screwed. Aoki has made a career out of latching on to his opponent, dragging them to the ground, and twisting them until they submit. And as we learned last year, if you don't submit, he'll twist until you break. Many of the sport's best have been unable to stop Aoki's submission game, and an MMA novice like Nagashima will stand little chance of surviving long in an MMA round. I see that going down much like Minowaman v. Errol Zimmerman two years ago.

Where things get interesting is the K-1 rounds. Nagashima has a significant advantage here, but I think many fans are being too quick to write Aoki out standing. Is the Dream champ's standing a weakness? Yes, clearly. But in his weird kickboxing-styled fight with Shaolin, Aoki demonstrated patience on his feet. Combine that with a serious reach advantage and I think Aoki can survive 3 minutes of stand up. And survive is all he has to do because again, once that K-1 round ends, Nagashima is in a world of trouble.

So, is this somewhat of a freakshow fight? Absolutely. And no, it doesn't really have much significance at all. But it is exactly the kind of odd thing that I love about fighting in Japan, and I'm looking forward to the weirdness of it.

I don't know about that dude..

Sounds interesting but also totally stupid lol^^


I would rather like to see Aoki vs. any top level LW they can come up with and put Nagashima against Kikuno

This is just twitter based info, so far from official, but apparently if Lashley takes the offer he will be Alistair's opponent at the Dynamite show. If he doesn't it would apparently be Satoshi Ishii.

I hope to god Lashley doesn't take this fight. I like him a lot but Overeem would embarrass him!
