How awesome is DREAM.5 gonna be!!?
With the Nick Diaz vs. Hayato Sakurai fight for the Welterweight Belt, Mirko Cro Cop vs. Jerome LeBanner and of course the Lightweight Semi Final's and Finals.... Ridiculous stuff right here.

Share your thoughts, maybe give a pick for the Diaz-Sakurai and Cro Cop-JLB fights and how will the Lightweight tourney go?

Assuming that Shinya Aoki beats Katsuhiko Nagata it will be...

(The Tournament Final) - Dream Lightweight GP and Belt
Nick Diaz vs. Hayato "Mach" Sakurai - Dream Welterweight Belt
Mirko Cro Cop vs. Jerome LeBanner
Shinya Aoki vs. Caol Uno
Tatsuya Kawajiri vs. Eddie Alvarez

I'm going with Mach Sakurai, Cro Cop, Shinya Aoki, and Kawajiri although Alvarez could really prove he is top 5 with a win over Kawajiri.

Which would give a Shinya Aoki vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri final which is kick ass. I'll go with the man, Shinya Aoki - he's a nutcase. I'm not confident with my picks, I think all these fights are real close ones. Which is why it is so awesome...

Who is pumped for this card!!!!!:thumbsup::thumb02:

DREAM is awesome! Simply awesome.

I hope SHinya wins his next fight, because Uno vs Aoki is pretty damn interesting. I also think Aoki beats Uno, probably not by sub, though he could, but by exciting decision. I also see Aoki getting Uno's back, because Uno always gives up his back.

Kawajiri should beat Alvarez, as he's a fighter who just shuts dudes down. Kawajiri is pretty much the favorite to win this thing, and I hope we do get to see Aoki vs Kawajiri in the finals, because man, I love me some SHINYA!

I hope Mirko goes all Yoshida on us, and starts rocking a gi in his fights.

Diaz vs Sakurai is pretty interesting, and I like Hayato in this one. Sure, he lost his last fight, but Hayato can be a great fighter when he's "on." Diaz is game as hell, but I think Sakurai can take him down and avoid subs all night long. Should be fun.

Now adding the fact that Kid Yamamoto and Akiyama are on the card aswell :O:O:O

Possibly one of the best events this year. Event better now that Kid is added. Just wish he had a bigger name opponent.

I can't express my love for this Org. they really know how to put things together. The only thing that I slightly object to is Mirko fighting Ralek Gracie in a BJJ Match, which is useless and stupid in the eyes of American UFC fans.

Damone 06-05-2008 01:27 PM

But, let's say Mirko wears a gi, would you slightly object to it then?

plazzman 06-05-2008 01:38 PM

Absolutely not, especially if it was red and white checkers.
