Kang Added to DREAM.5

The Dream.5 card just got even better with the addition of the talented Kang.

http://dreamfighters.com/site/?actio...&id=1213135100
Here is the text from the link..

"Denis Kang has confirmed that he will compete at DREAM.5 on Monday, July 21 at the Osaka Castle Hall in Osaka, Japan. At this time, DREAM has not releases who Kang will be fighting at DREAM.5


Kang this week will be flying back to Montreal to start a intense one month training camp with UFC welterweight champion, Georges St. Pierre, Nate Marquardt, Patrick Cote and Rashad Evans and a few others.


The bout will complete Kang's current contract with the Dream promotion, which was transferred from K-1 Hero's in 2007.

When asked if he will still fight for DREAM or head to another MMA organization, here is what he said.

I've talked to organizations, like Affliction and the UFC, in the past few months, but this visa thing is what's holding things up," Kang said. "It's tough. If can't fight in the U.S, how am I going to fight for them"


I'm really hoping that Kang gets back to winning ways here, no doubt they'll probably give him a fairly easy opponent to do just that. He's such a good fighter when he's on his game. His loss against Mousasi was just darn annoying - it seemed like he didn't understand what a triangle choke was.

So the card so far...

Mirko Cro Cop vs. Jerome LeBanner
Nick Diaz vs. Hayato Sakurai - Welterweight Title
Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto vs. Joseph Benavidez
Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. TBA
Denis Kang vs. TBA
Eddie Alvarez vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri - Semi Final
Caol Uno vs. Aoki/Nagata - Semi Final
LWGP Final

This card is nothing short of insane.

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..

I hope they don't give him a can, he should rebound against decents opponents, not against someone he is supposed to dominate.

Kang gave MOusasi that sub himself Love Kang but what the hell happened in that last fight? Hope he bounces back with some wins. Would be really sweet to see Diaz beat Sakurai

Well damn, that sucks. Oh well, thanks for the news. Lombard should be in either the UFC, WEC or DREAM. Dude's talented.
