I would have thought Taiki would still be laid up after that unholy beating Kubo put on him for 3 rounds.

Exclamation Taiki

Well in Japan remember that they don't have medical suspensions of the like!

I can't believe they haven't gave Ricco a fight after he backed out of his fight with Monson in order to fight Overeem.

Overeem:
Quote:
"I have heard numerous rumors about me fighting at Dream on July 10. I want to give my side of the story before speculation arises:

"After my Brett Rogers fight on May 15, I decided to take time off and do media appearances -- MMA expo in Canada, E3 expo, Strikeforce events -- and enjoy some time off with my family. I knew Dream wanted me on the show, but I didn't want to go back in training preparation. Then, they offered me a fight against Andrei Arlovski for the Dream heavyweight title. As I have said on occasions, fighting for a belt means something more, and I wanted that Dream title so much that So as a result, I agreed to lay off my media and holiday plans, and went back to training.

"During my training I found out that Andrei Arlovski was not going to be my opponent, and they changed opponents numerous times. I've heard names like Tim Sylvia and Minowa. At one point, I received notice that they had found a opponent but that the Dream heavyweight title was not on the line anymore. With all the changes and the title fight no longer a possibility, I simply had to turn down the opportunity.

"The next day, I immediately took a flight to San Jose to hype up my possible fight against the winner of Fedor Emelianenko or Fabricio Werdum. I then heard rumors that Dream had booked me in a fight against Ricco Rodriguez. I want to make it very clear that I never verbally agreed to fight him and I never signed a contract with Dream to fight him. I feel very sorry for Ricco Rodriguez's camp if they still think the fight is on, and I apologize to my fans that have bought a ticket to see me compete. I hope this statement has shed some light on the unfortunate situation."
LOL@ Overeem vs. Minowa...oh, you crazy FEG.

Unhappy Feg

If it had been for the DREAM Heavyweight Title I'm sure Overeem would've taken it, but they decided no and he decided it wasn't worth it anymore!

Dream is such a train wreck I wonder how many shows they have left in them. FEG should probably shift focus to promoting K1 and making that a bigger deal not letting Dream bleed money from them when there is no hope of it becoming a success.

Exclamation K1

They do promote K-1 and as far as I know, DREAM is not bleeding money, they have that market to her own!

Dream has been bleeding money since its inception. MMA isn't a mainstream sport in japan anymore since the Pride scandal and they don't have the market to themselves there are several mma companies running in Japan. K1 is apparently not doing great right now either so I am saying drop the dead weight and focus completely on K1 because it is salvageable and a better product.
