Who do you think are the last two fighters? Shaolin and KID maybe? or Mach Sakurai who is signed.
I think Sakurai will fight in the 167 lbs. division, but I could be wrong. Kid is a major possibility since there is no weight division below 154 lbs. I'd love to see Shaolin enter the GP and redeem himself after his poor showing in last year's K-1 HERO'S GP. Either way it's looking damn good! I'm hoping they get a great line up for the MWGP also.

Aoki was lookin' seriously pimped out at that conference. Too bad he doesn't rock the banana pants in public.

I'm excited.

A banana suit would rule.

DREAM looks already to be the #2 org IMO. I mean their LW divison is stronger than the UFC's. They have at least two solid HW's which isn't far behind the UFC. Their MW divison is pretty close to the UFC since they do have Akiyama, Kang, and possibly Misaki.
Here are their current divisons and the guys that they could possibly add.

HW
Sergei Khartonov (signed with Dreams)
Cro Cop (signed with Dreams)
Overeem (signed with Dreams)

Possible signings
Barnett (non exclusive deal with WVR)
Monson (a bunch of non exclusives)
Ricco (non exclusive with Pro Elite)
Arlovski (soon to be a FA)
Aleks E. (Non exclusive with HCF and M-1
Fedor (Non Exclusive with M-1)


LHW
None known

Possible signings
Ricardo Arona (No contracts)
Rogerio Nogueira (non exclusive with HCF)
Babalu (numerous non exclusive deals)


MW
Denis Kang (signed)
Akiyama (signed)
Sakuraba (signed)
Melvin Manhoef (signed)
Dong sik Yoon (signed)
Carlos Newton(signed?)
Misaki (signed?)

Possible signings
Matt Lindland (non exclusive with Bodog)
Frank Trigg (HDNET nonexclusive)
Mayhem Miller (HDNET nonexclusive)
Frank Shamrock (nonexclusive Strikeforce)
Cung Le (nonexclusive Strikeforce)
Robbie Lawler (nonexclusive Pro Elite)
Ninja Rua (nonexclusive Pro Elite)

WW
Mach Sakurai (signed)

Possible signings
Paul Daley (Non Exclusive with Pro Elite)
Jake Shields (Non Exclusive with Pro Elite)
Nick Thompson (Non Exclusive with Bodog)

LW
Lots (signed)

Possible signings
Shaolin (idk if he is signed or not?)
Josh Thomson(non exclusive with Strikeforce)

BTW I'm sure I forgot a crap load of guys so if you can think of anyone mention them since I'm going to make a thread about the Dream Roster soon.

^I thought Overeem was already signed with K-1? He had his 1st fight which was the rematch with Sergei, then he's supposed to fight on a K-1 co-promoted card in Holland against Gilbert Yvel.

I know he's the Strikeforce HW champ, but like you say, his contract with them is non-exlusive.

Imagine if Yamamoto moved up again in weight for this, or hell if they signed Gomi. Still this is going to be awesome, except for JZ/Aoki fighting in one of the initial brackets.

I thought Akiyama had the most swagger.

That's right, I forgot about his MMA match last year at the K-1 World GP in Amsterdam.

His fight against Yvel is supposed to be at the K-1 World GP in Amsterdam 2008. The event is scheduled to take place on April 28.
