Ishida rules. He's also tiny, so hes like an underdog little dude.
I really hope he can do win the GP somehow.

I guess there is one Buscape fan on this board.

....It's okay, I have enough room to kick back and relax on the bandwagon.

They were booing when Aoki was making an issue of those elbows. I can dig the respect the Japanese crowd has, but I also like the energy and noise the American and UK crowds bring. Except for the idiots in attendance at the Kimbo/Tank fight, worst most ignorant crowd I've ever heard at a PPV. I think that PPV was in Florida.

So how does this work now with Aoki/JZ being a no contest in a GP? I'm really looking forward to seeing JZ hurt Aoki but are they going to fight again in this GP or will Dream have to force Aoki to fight him again at gunpoint?

What the hell are you talking about? Also the next one will probably air on HD.NET

Are you four years old or something? Here...


After a controversial stoppage to their March 15 match-up, Shinya Aoki and Gesias "JZ" Calvancante will rematch on April 29 to determine who advances in the Dream lightweight tournament. The Dream 2 show, scheduled to be held at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, also features the first round of a Dream Middleweight Grand Prix.



While the debut of DREAM.1 wasnít televised in the US, you can look forward to watching the rest of the DREAM events in 2008, live and in high definition.
The director of FEGUSA, Mike Kogan, informed Sherdog on Friday that FEG (Fight Entertainment Group) and Mark Cubanís HDNet are very close to sealing a deal that would televise a total of six DREAM events from Japan in 2008.
For those of you who missed the DREAM.1 Lightweight Grand Prix donít fret. If everything goes through with the deal, a delayed broadcast of DREAM.1 could air next week. The next event to air on the high definition network will be DREAM.2 on April 29 featuring the first round of the much anticipated Middleweight Grand Prix. All future events should be "near live" according to Kogan. Although the deal has not been officially signed yet, Kogan says that it is very close to being finalized and that the most important aspects of the deal are already agreed upon.
HDNet is already a huge player in the field of mixed martial arts promotion and is scheduled to air at least 24 live events in 2008. HDNet continues to grow and recently partnered with Strikeforce to air four events during 2008. Other partners that have been acquired by the network include Maximum Fighting Championships and the International Fight League.
HDNet also recently got involved with the UFC / Randy Couture debacle which has grown into a full fledged circus act over the past few months. HDNet sued Zuffa in February and signed Couture to a deal that will begin when his UFC contract expires. Mark Cubanís plan is to promote a fight between "The Natural" and of course "The Last Emperor" Fedor Emelianenko. The earliest the fight could take place would be in the fall.
And no, Lyoto Machida isn't on the card.
