Seriously,It's in 24 days or so and the matchups is STILL not revealed? All other shows with a date set later than June 14:th (affliction, ufc 85, etc.) are out with complete cards already?

Anyone knows why the DREAMers are so freakin' slow? Or are there any updates?

Mirko is off the card, not sure if JLB will get another opponenet or not, and KID has been confirmed. Aoki has also been confirmed to still be in the tournament, as well as Saku.

Mirko is off the card because JLB couldn't fight because he has a fight with Semmy before Dream 4 and wouldn't be ready, so their fight is postponed to Dream 5.

I thought Mayhem is in the MW tournament, As anything been said if he will be fighting at Dream 4 or not?

I was looking forward to the CroCop fight as well, but Still looks like it will be a good card though.

Official line-up:

DREAM announced Friday the matchups for the second round of its middleweight grand prix scheduled for June 15 at the Yokohama Arena in Japan.

Since Kiyoshi Tamura is out of the tournament due to a broken hand suffered in the first round against Masakatsu Funaki, Melvin Manhoef, who won the reserve bout at DREAM 3, will enter the tournament. Manhoef's opponent will be Japanese superstar Kazushi Sakuraba.

Jason "Mayhem" Miller will take on grappling wizard Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza. Miller debuted for DREAM on May 10, stopping Katsuyori Shibata in the first round.

PRIDE veteran Gegard Mousasi will face off against Yoon Sik Dong.

And finally, Zelg Galesic, who put himself on the map with the UK's Cage Rage promotion, will fight Taiei Kin.

Previously announced was the second round lightweight bout between Shinya Aoki and Katsuhiko Nagata.

DREAM 4 will be televised live in the US on HDNet.

And we get to see Jacare tested!!! Yess, GO JACARE!

That's exactly what PRIDE used to do as well, and since DREAM is run by similar guys to PRIDE, it's expected they'd follow the same trend. Why PRIDE was so slow, who knows?

I think they give the fighters enough time to know their opponents, but DREAM/PRIDE decides to keep it a secret until later as an element of surprise.

Looks like Overeem is back at it, looking forward to watch him fight as I didn't catch the Buentello fight and always enjoyed watching Overeem go at it.
