Reasonably good event. My main thoughts...

- Like others said, Sakaruba needs to retire, he can't beat anyone of note now, and its not good seeing him get KO'd or subbed every fight
- Kawajiri looks good at FW, he's gonna give a lot of guys a lot of problems (not that he didn't at LW though)
- Aoiki needs to stop fighting these average American fighters. After tonight, Aoiki-Kitaoka would be a decent fight.
- Cabral looks a decent prospect, 10 fights 10 subs. Be good to see him given a test, maybe even Zaromskis, would be a good striker v grappler fight
- Inoue's KO was good, shame Blanco isn't still at DREAM, that would make a great fight
- BW GP was good, Fernandes the obvius favourite, but i wouldn;t be suprised if Marques won another couple of ugly fights to take it

Yeah, at this rate Sakuraba is going to get brain damage from the knockouts. I wonder if Kawajiri is going to the UFC. If he does then he'll have some good matchups over here.

I agree that would be an interesting fight, but Blanco never fought for DREAM. He was a Pancrase and Sengoku fighter.

Yeah and right now Blanco is in Strikeforce. Unfortunately, he looked like another example of overseas fighters who looked blown out of proportion. Not to mention illegal kicks.
