DREAM To Have A Bantamweight Division Next Year

DREAM are finally going to split their 63kg weight class to two weight classes (61~62kg and 65kg) next year. But which of the two will the current fighters choose to fight at?

Many are quite obvious. Mitsuhiro Ishida, Caol Uno, Kazuyuki Miyata, Michihiro Omigawa (if he signs for more DREAM fights), and Joachim Hansen are locks for the 65kg division. Hideo Tokoro, Norifumi “KID” Yamamoto, Yoshiro Maeda, and Akiyo “Wicky” Nishiura are locks for the 61~62kg division.

After DREAM.14 training partners Kenji Osawa and Hiroyuki Takaya appealed for the weight class to be split into two and in that case Osawa would fight in the lower weight class and Takaya in the higher weight class.

I’m guessing Cole Escovedo (if he has more fights in DREAM) would fight in the lower weight class.

The only question is where Bibiano Fernandes would fight (I’m guessing the lower weight class). It seems to be quite a good split though as the fighters seem to be nicely divided in half for the two new divisions.
