Kid Yamamoto Enters Dream Grand Prix

Quote:


Dream on Friday announced the bouts for the quarterfinal round of its Featherweight Grand Prix scheduled for May 26 at the Yokohama Arena in Yokohama, Japan.

Receiving a bye in the opening round, Norifumi "Kid" Yamamoto enters the quarterfinal round to face wrestling standout Joe Warren. Warren defeated former WEC champion Chase Beebe in the opener.

Daiki "DJ Taiki" Hata is out of the quarterfinals with a fracture to his orbital bone. Hideo Tokoro will take his place, stepping in to face Abel Cullum. In a showdown between tough Japanese veterans, Yoshiro Maeda squares off against Hiroyuki Takaya. And Masakazu Imanari faces a stern test in Bibiano Fernandes.

Featherweight Grand Prix Quarterfinalists:
-Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto vs. Joe Warren
-Masakazu Imanari vs. Bibiano Fernandes
-Yoshiro Maeda vs. Hiroyuki Takaya
-Abel Cullum vs. Hideo Tokoro

Me likey- you get to see both "Kid" and JZ make their returns after long layoffs due to injury. Good to see them back at it.

I have a feeling he is going to brutally KO whoever he faces.

Maybe we will get to see Imanari vs. Kid, that'd be pretty cool.

He has an ideal opponent with a 15 month layoff, hopefully he's healthy. Should be able to clown Warren with his kickboxing, all assuming his knees are back

good stuff - thanks for the 411. crossing my fingers Kid stays healthy to fight and doesn't have too much rust from the longtime out of the ring. I assume this one will be on HDnet?...
