Mousasi was fighting in DREAM for at least a year before he fought in SF. And Overeem had a contract with FEG through both K-1 and K-1 Heros before DREAM was even formed by FEG and Real Entertainment. Though I don't think either of them were technically part of the talent exchange
since it didn't start until late 2009.
But SF got Mayhem, Jacare, Zaromskis, Manhoef, JZ Cavalcante, Shaolin, Aoki and they're getting Sergei for their HW tourney. That's a lot that I can think of, including two of DREAM's champions and one fighter that won a SF belt.
I think DREAM has only really received Diaz and Thomson that I can recall.
But Yea if Dream do set up a LW tournament would be great to see Melendez chosen, I would like to see Dream bring Nagashima into MMA also to compete in there Tourney.
Be nice to see Bellator join this little union and get Alvarez out there then things could really get interesting.
It'd be great to see Alvarez in there. Bellator seemed to be good with letting him fight both DREAM and SF fighters too, so that might be possible.
This could be a really fun tourney if they get the top LWs from DREAM, SF and Bellator together.
