Because it showed Cro Cop hasn't changed his gameplan at all. He couldn't bully Choi and as a result he consistantly backed away from him like he always does. It was the same shit that got him in trouble with Kongo and Overeem. The only difference was he actually came out on top this time and he didn't get nailed in the balls (Of course I can't say the same for Choi). What would have happened if he fought an elite HW the same way he fought Choi?

he never set up any of his kicks, and if i'm not mistaken i only saw him throw one punch the entire fight but it did look like it had bad intentions. =\

3. Shinya Aoki - Made a win against Eddie Alvarez look easy.

4. Gegard Mousasi - Awesome performance against a good K-1 vet.

5. Tatsuya Kawajiri - Dominant victory over one of Japan's greatest kickboxers in history. Age is an issue for Takeda, but very impressive nonetheless.

7. Daisuke Nakamura - Took the next step in beating a tough guy like Tokoro, and quickly aswell.

6. Ikuhisa Minowa - The guy made Zimmerman look silly.

Am I missing anyone? I haven't seen the Hiroya fights, Sakurai's or Ologun's yet.

What are next for some of these guys?

I'd like to see Mousasi fight Akiyama and then possibly go to the UFC, but I think Akiyama and FEG are hating atm, so that fight probably won't happen.

There is nothing as far as Heavyweight competition goes in DREAM for Overeem, but maybe the guy will feel confident with K-1 now and decide to fight in the GP? I'd love to see it for sure. If not, he needs to get over to Affliction or the UFC, because that's where the best MMA Heavies are at atm. Not DREAM. Cro Cop rematch is pointless, especially after Overeem's latest performance.

Aoki just continues to WOW me. He's fought what DREAM have to offer, think of the wins he has got now... JZ, Hansen (though may need a rubber match), Alvarez, Uno. That's awesome. A JZ rematch might be needed, as JZ was in some bother injury wise in his fight with Aoki. I'd love to see Aoki in the UFC someday. I'd love him to fight guys like Florian and BJ.

Daisuke has plenty of fights if he wants to fight at Lightweight in DREAM, otherwise.. I'd love to see him in the WEC 145lb division, there are some great match-ups for him there. Also Shooto's 145lb division would have some nice bouts for him.

Any thoughts on the future of some of these guys?

Minowa will obviously just keep being Minowaman.
All I'd like to say is that all my comments about Hunt being terrible were completely proven tonight.

I was most impressed with Kyshenko. He just walked Sato down the whole fight and bombarded him with power shot after power shot. Sato showed his damn granite chin though but Artur solidified himself as a top 3 guy in MAX.

Yeah because beating guys like Wanderlei, CroCop, Le Banner, Leko, Filho, Bernardo and winning the K-1 GP means you really suck right?

Well he never beat Filho, Le Banner, or Leko in mma. I don't know about kickboxing, but this is a mma forum last I checked. As far as Wanderlei, is a split decision win over a LHW impressive? As far as Crocop, rewatch the fight. Do you actually think he won? Hunt has always and will always suck.

Does K-1 not host mma along with kickboxing? If Affliction hosted a show with Golden boy with boxing on the card, and I said Noons sucked would you assume I was talking about his boxing record? So since you got confused, Hunt sucks at mma.
