Ah man, what the hell? I wanted to see Tamura leg-kick fools and look uninterested while doing it.

Ah well, DREAM is still swank.

Yeah he broke his hand on the only punch thrown in the match (which knocked the gel out of Funaki's hair)

Tamura always looks like he had something much more interesting to do prior, but someone forced him to get into the ring and fight.

I've resigned myself to the fact that Saku/Tamura is just never going to happen even if Saku keeps fighting until he's 60 (which, sadly is quite possible). Instead we'll get to see Manhoef cave Saku's skull in.

DREAM still rocks though. It's only a matter of time until we get some sweet delicious freakshow matches.

Questionable logic to the rescue.
Works well enough for me.

Dude, how can you not be excited for DREAM? Did you see Jacare with his gator walk? Or Shinya Aoki's heel strikes from DLR guard to JZ? Have you seen some of the upcoming match ups, such as Mach Sakurai vs Nick Diaz? Mayhem Miller vs Jacare? Damn man, I'm way stoked on DREAM, I'm just trying to be subtle about it b/c I don't wanna jinx it.




What a stud

mmawrestler I mean no disrespect, I think you are trying to say the right thing and I respect your opinion. I just don't want ther OP to feel disrespected. This was not so much a case of a better fighter defeating a lesser fighter but two amazing fighters locking it up an only one could come out the victor. Many people didn't know how how great a fighter Eddie Alvarez was before the tourney started or even after his defeat of Dida. I believe everyone's eyes have been opened now. Eddie Alvarez is for real and so is Joachim Hansen. Two great fighters went in and only one could come out the winner. Eddie fought the better and smarter fight that night. 95% of MMA fighters would have been KOd or given up after the beating that Eddie dished out early on, but not Joachim. He fought on and and did everything he could and almost won if not for the awesome escape from that amazing sub by Hellboy. It's sad that only one of these great fighters can move on, but such is the nature of a tournament. In my mind Eddie gained a bunch from that fight (and the one before) and Joachim lost nothing (in fact I have more respect for Hellboy than ever!). I'm not implying that you disrespected either fighter in any way, just trying to clear things up. When two men go into a fight like that and give it everything they absolutely have in my mind one man comes out the winner, but NO ONE COMES OUT THE LOSER.

Looks like Aoki is trying to hide his enormous junk in that picture.

My man, Norway1, I am very sorry that I have just now come across your cry for help. Yes, I am crushed as well that Ishida and Hellboy lost, however not all hope is lost my good friend.

Let's take a brief look at the line up for DREAM4.

Alistair Overeem vs. Tae Hyun Lee
- While I don't know much about Tae Hyun Lee, I do know the goods on Overeem. Overeem is the current Strikeforce HW champ and hasn't fought in a long time so this is always interesting, besides his last win was over The Headhunter which is always good.

Mirko CroCop Filipovic vs. Ralek Gracie in a submission grappling match, Oh my God, I've never predicted this day would come. While Gracie is the obvious favorite in this one, just the fact that Mr. Left Kick Cemetery is in a grappling match with a Gracie is quite intriguing. Although Mirko doesn't have any grappling credentials what-so-ever, just the fact that he can come in with a Gi would be quite delicious and could make for a great avatar, kinda like Scuba Wandy.

Now we move on to the DREAM MW GP. (Grand Prix btw, are always very fun stuff ^^)

Kazushi Sakuraba vs. Melvin Manhoef - Once again Kazushi shows his love for the fans as he steps in the ring against someone who will more than likely break his face in. That my friend, is unconditional love for his fans. Let's hope, once again, he lives to tell the tale.

Jason Miller vs. Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza - This is probably one of the most anticipated matches for many of the members here because Miller is always an interesting fight and Jacare, well he's looked at as the next big thing. This is a classic match of someone who's proven solid (Miller) and Jacare Souza, the Legendary BJJ Prospect. I'm very stoked for this one as I'm looking to see Jacare's performance against solid competition.

Gegard Mousasi vs Yoon Dong Sik - I can give you a HUGE paragraph about this but I can sum it up with this.. It's the Dongster and he's going to end up Dongbarring somebody. Nuff' said.

Taiei Kin vs Zelg “Benkei” Galesic - To be quite honest, I'm not too interested in this but they're in the GP, and remember GP's are always fun so whatever. The only reason I'm not too interested in this one is because I doubt either of them will win this GP but oh well, we'll find out.

Katsuhiko Nagata vs Shinya Aoki - This fight is going to be amazing, we're going to get to see some Aoki pants + lots of crazy flying sub attempts and some crazy pretzel like guard from Aoki. Very "boner inducing" if I may. (Fedor>All)

Darren Uyenoyama vs Hideo Tokoro - This fight is a featherweight fight and featherweight fights are rarely boring. Hideo Tokoro is a very interesting fighter. I look forward to seeing him fight. This guy is like a Gracie Hunter in training.. almost.

Alexandre Ferreira vs Alavutdin Gadzhiyev - I don't know much about Alavutdin but I do know that Alexandre has competed in ADCC and is a BTT fighter so this should be fun.

Lots of good stuff in this card man. Lots of em.
