How class was that?? Pick MW GP/LW GP

Didn't you just seriously enjoy DREAM.4?
I was loving it.

Was loving some of the awesome ground skill showed on this card, Ralek Gracie, Jacare and the sick Gogoplata from mount by Shinya Aoki.

Tokoro - Uyenoyama fight was class, was loving every second of it.

Mousasi vs. Dong especially the 1st round was awesome, Mousasi looked like he was breaking Dong down with the low kicks, but then nearly gets armbarred, great escape from Mousasi, showing well rounded game in this fight, just like with his sub win over Kang.. Then having Dong in a body triangle for most of the 2nd, really good performance from Mousasi against a very tough opponent.

Alistair Overeem's striking looks awesome, although against a legitimate bum. Was fun to watch, his fight with Cro Cop could be seriously class if a good Mirko turns up.

Aoki was dominant.. Hated watching Saku get beat up, still ******* stopping that shit late, jeez.

We saw a sick arm brake, it's very unforunate not just for Taiei Kin, but for Galesic because he says he's going to have another rematch with Kin now, seems silly to me, even though these two fights have been controversial, Galesic is on a different level to Kin tbh, he will just beat him easily.

Jacare/Miller great fight aswell, Jacare showing just how strong he is when he is on top of you, and he will mount you quickly. Once he's there, although Miller managed to shake him off once, he normally sticks to you like glue.

*CLAP CLAP* for Dream, I hope they are getting some good ratings back in Japan, it really is a quality product with quality fighters.

So looking onwards, DREAM.5 will be a sick card.
Kawajiri vs. Alvarez
Aoki vs. Uno

Aoki vs. Kawajiri

I really don't have a clue.

Then at DREAM.6 we will see the MW Finals.
Ronaldo "Jacare"
Gegard Mousasi
Melvin Manhoef
Zelg Galesic

I say put...
Melvin Manhoef vs. Zelg Galesic
Ronaldo "Jacare" vs. Gegard Mousasi

I think both these fights would be awesome, where as if you do it any other way I think that Mousasi and Jacare would come out top, Manhoef vs. Galesic would be a great stand up fight, probably - unless Galesic decides to take it to the ground. And Mousasi vs. Jacare would be another sweet fight, so then again you could just let them fight in the Final. W/E

I'm picking Jacare to win the tourney.

DREAMS first champions i'm thinking will be...

HW - Mirko Cro Cop
LHW - ...Ricardo Arona?? - This is the division they lack huge amount of talent in, thanks to the UFC.
MW - Ronaldo "Jacare" De Souza
WW - Hayato "Mach" Sakurai
LW - Shinya Aoki
FW - Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto

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..

Jacare is proving himself to be the class of Dream's 185 pound division and has to be the favorite here. It depends on the matchups for the LW grand prix. I am standing by my pick of Kawajiri to win it all. Alvarez or Aoki could easily win it as well though. Uno is a bit of a longshot to me.

Jacare will probably win the MW GP and Aoki will win the LW GP.

I'm still pretty bummed that Kang AND Dong lost.



Pride of KOREA:

Yoshihiro Akiyama (Choo Sung Hoon)
Denis "The Super Korean" Kang
Yoon Dong Sik
Dong Hyun "Stun Gun" Kim
Bu Kyung Jung
Hong Man "The Techno Goliath" Choi

Aoki is simply awesome. I'm hoping he takes the whole GP.

Mousasi vs Manhoef would be fun.

Sakuraba, please, retire.

Galesic on another level than Kim? Are you ****in' joking me? Kim is a K-1 level striker. Galesic's strong point is his striking. Kim has a pretty good TDD to boot. Kim just had a chain of unfortunate events to prove his worth.


KAWAJIRI FTW in the LWGP BTW...


Why are you asking Sakuraba to quit? He does what he loves and you have no right to stop him. I enjoy all his fights and if he still wants to fight let him.

No, it's Kim. He's of korean ethnicity. The japanese just pronounce it Kin because he's a Zainichi.

Great great show, but Kenny Rice killed it for me.

Mousasi looked great, but the 2nd round was horrid, The Donger just fell asleep. Aoki lived up to his "Gogo" legend and Saku died.

Very good show.

I see Mousasi winning this whole thing.

Yep, Kenny Rice did kill it for me as well. He disrespects the fighters that are underdogs. Arent announcers suppose to hype the fight by saying both fighters have legitimate chance of winning?
