Is Sakurai vs. Monma in the GP?

As the title says..

I saw on another site that Sakurai vs. Monma is part of the LW GP, but i thought originally that it wasn't.

Anyone got an answer?

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

No, it's not a part of the LWGP. The fight is at 170 lbs.

Yes, because if it wasn't then there would be 7 tourny matches and you cant have that.

EDIT: Wait what?

It's not a GP match. Sakurai has said many times that he's not fighting in the GP and is fighting at welterweight. It's listed on both the dream official site and the k-1 official site as a non GP fight. Where are you getting the info that it's a part of the GP?

lol my head, I just figured since it's a tourny, that there should be an even number of matches, and without Sakurai/Monma, there would be 7.

That's because they haven't announced the final LWGP match yet.

َAhh, good point, I would have figured they would, since it's 4 days away and all.

But my bad.

Its probably going to be 2 guys that are a) Japanese and/or arn't very good. I'm hoping randomly its Gomi but that pretty close to being impossible.

*_*_*_*_*_UFC FANTASY TEAM*_*_*_*_*
Wanderlei Silva
Evan Tanner
Kenny Florian
Alan Belcher
Alessio Sakara

^I agree, it will probably be two fighters that aren't all that great. It's kind of disappointing that they haven't officially announced all the GP matches yet.

I read on some other forum earlier today that Shaolin is fighting in the last fight, but he is injured at the moment so will fight at the next Dream event in the last fight of the 1st round. Cool addition, at least its not two scrubs like we thought it maybe. This would probably happen at the 1st round of the MW GP - DREAM.2

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..
