* Melvin Manhoef vs. Tatsuya Mizuno (light-heavyweight grand prix opening round)
* Gesias "JZ" Cavalcante vs. Katsunori Kikuno
* Karl Amoussou vs. Kazuhiro Nakamura
* Michihiro Omigawa vs. Young Sam Jung
* Gegard Mousasi vs. Jake O'Brien (light-heavyweight grand prix opening round)
* Daiki "DJ.taiki" Hata vs. Mitsuhiro Ishida
The press conference was held today, here is the basic's/some general points.

1.) July 10th will be the date of Dream 15

2.) The planned participants will be Gegard Mousasi, Shinya Aoki, Kawajiri, Melvin Manhoef, and Alistar Overeem.

3.) Maybe, finally, Aoki vs. Kawajiri for the title.

4.) Two lightheavy fights will be on this card

5.) N.O.B states on his website that:
Quote:
Fights for DREAM.15 will be announced at DREAM.14 on the 29th. It looks like DREAM.15 will be a card of rivals as footage of Sakuraba/Gracies, Antonio Inoki/Giant Baba, Kim Yuna/Mao Asada, etc. was shown after the press conference.

6.) FEG is in talks with the recently cut Caol Uno, so we might see him on this card.

Some last points:

Dream is trying to get Kimbo signed

An abroad event in 2010 for Dream

They have brought in two opponents for Alistar Overeem in July, maybe some top guys.

Omigawa might fight in Dream

Minowa is on Dream 14 - Maybe vs. Kimbo on Dream 15 if they can sign him.

Ishida vs. Jz was scrathed from Dream 14

From Sherdog:

Quote:
TOKYO -- The light heavyweight grand prix that was cancelled for Dream 14 has been scheduled as a smaller four-man field at Dream 15 on July 10, FEG president Sadaharu Tanikawa and Dream event producer Keiichi Sasahara announced Thursday at a news conference.

The winners of the two tournament bouts at Dream 15 will face each other in September to determine Dream’s light heavyweight champion. Tanikawa and Sasahara also expressed hope for the Dream champion to face the Strikeforce champion in February 2011.

One of the participants in the four-man tournament will likely be former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi, whom Sasahara and Tanikawa called upon during the presser for a brief telephone interview. Apart from stating his plans to begin training in earnest starting next week, Mousasi expressed no preference for a particular opponent in the tournament. However, he made clear his desire to rematch current Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal on New Year’s Eve at K-1 Dynamite.

Earlier rumored to take place in Japan’s Kansai region, Dream 15 will in fact take place at the promotion’s usual Kanto region venue, the Saitama Super Arena, and will return to using the ring after Dream 14’s use of the “White Cage.”

Sasahara and Tanikawa announced fighters such as Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem, Tatsuya Kawajiri, Dream lightweight champion Shinya Aoki, Deep lightweight champion Katsunori Kikuno and Melvin Manhoef as expected participants.

Both officials also mentioned hopes to bring more Strikeforce alumni over to Japan to participate in the event. They did not discuss specific matchups, though they teased Overeem’s potential opponent as being a choice between two heavyweight candidates: one being an experienced heavyweight well-acquainted with fighting in Japan and the other being an established heavyweight talent that has not yet fought in Japan.

Given the event’s official tagline -- “A Fated Rivalry Bout, Realized” -- a potential Aoki-Kawajiri showdown for the lightweight title is expected. Despite Dream lightweight champion Aoki’s recent loss to Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez in April, a title shot for Kawajiri has been in the cards since his victory over Gesias Cavalcante in May 2009 at Dream 9.

Dream officials also announced that the upcoming May 29 Dream 14 event will be the promotion’s only cage event in 2010. The eighth and final bout on the card will pit Ikuhisa Minowa against an opponent to be determined. Questions and suggestions gathered from Internet-based fans pointed to Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson, who was recently released from his Zuffa contract. FEG president Tanikawa replied that though the fight may be impossible to make in time for Dream 14, Kimbo would be the most ideal opponent for Dream’s “Super Hulk” champion.

Unhappy Pay

Well DREAM sometimes has book keeping issues, so I'm sure it has something to do with that!

Unhappy Viewing

I don't have cable, thus I don't have HDNet, thus I can't watch it on TV and I don't know how to watch it online!

I'm sure if you look around you can find somebody streaming it online. That's what i do for the strikeforce events since i dont get them on tv.
