Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller vs Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza fight possible for DREAM 9 on May 26

Grappling phenom Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza is possibly slated to once again do battle with the charismatic Jason “Mayhem” Miller at “DREAM 9″ from the Yokohama Arena in Yokohama, Japan, on May 26, according to a Tatame.com report.

The bout will likely be contested for the DREAM middleweight title because the current champion, Gegard Mousasi (24-2-1), has relinquished the belt to prepare for a move up to light heavyweight.

This will be the second encounter between “Jacare” and “Mayhem” — the pair first met during DREAM’s Middleweight Grand Prix quarterfinals at “DREAM 4″ in June 2008. The bout would go the distance and the conclusion would see Souza garner a unanimous decision victory over Miller.

First things first, however.

“Mayhem” has to get past dangerous striker Kalo Hose (7-2) at the debut show for “Kingdom MMA” on April 18, which could put Miller’s proposed bout in jeopardy if any injuries are sustained or he can’t make a quick enough turn around.

Hopefully it won’t come to that.

“Dream 9″ will feature the promotion’s featherweight grand prix quarterfinals.
The focal point of which will boast the long awaited return of 145-pound superstar Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto, who was offered a first-round bye in the tournament in hopes that he will have recovered from a previous injury in time to compete. He’s coming off a long 16-month layoff but now he’s finally ready to compete and will take on wrestling standout Joe Warren.

In non-tournament action will be highly regarded lightweight standout Gesias “JZ” Calvancante who is set to do battle with Japanese mainstay Tatsuya Kawajiri.

That’s it for now. Look for more fights to be added as we get closer to May 26.

Here is the current line-up for “DREAM 9:”

Featherweight grand prix quarterfinals:
Norifumi Yamamoto (17-1) vs. Joe Warren (1-0)
Masakazu Imanari (16-6-1) vs. Bibiano Fernandes (4-2)
Yoshiro Maeda (24-6-2) vs. Hiroyuki Takaya (10-6-1)
Abel Cullum (14-2) vs. Hideo Tokoro (21-16-1)

DREAM middleweight title:
Ronaldo Souza (10-2) vs. Jason Miller (21-6)

Non-tournament bouts:
Gesias Calvancante (14-2-1) vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri (23-5-2)

This card is really looking good- obviously Miller has to handle business with Hose for this to happen but a decent rematch. Jacare is coming off that tough upkick KO from Mousasi in the finals of the MW Grand Prix last year. Add in the DREAM MW belt and it makes it a good fight to see though I'd take Jacare in this again.

I'd also take Jacare in this one if it were to happen. The rest of the fights are looking good as well.

Good fight. Mayhem was gutsy fighting out of Jacare's relentless sub attempts, but he should be better prepared this time for his shot and strength.

I think Gegard should have stayed at middleweight for at least a couple more fights, but if he feels his body can't make the weight than more power to him.

This is a great fight card IMO.

Looks like Jacare is expecting a real war.

Im gonna have to go with mayhem this time around. Ive never really been impressed with jacare in mma. His first win against mayhem was anything but decisive and i think mayhem will have a much better gameplan this time.
