It looks promising, but I hope they get more non-Japanese fighters on the card.

I'd really like to see Alvarez figth Diaz on this card...

Aoki should fight a rematch with Sakurai or they should bring Shaolin back over and have him and Aoki fight it out


Kawajiri should fight Ishida

I think getting Diaz would depend largely on his getting out of the EliteXC contract (which hopefully will be sooner rather than later) and then if DREAM would let them fight on the card. In that case, i guess it would depend on if Nick would fight on the January DREAM event-alternately, they could have Diaz vs. Mach for the DREAM WW title on this card, we were supposed to get that match a ways back before everything fell apart.

This is one sweet card. As long as they don't make some lame matchups, this will be an awesome event. I just wish I could watch it on TV. Thank God for the internet.

Both are owned by FEG so I hope that they will show it. Then again I haven't seen a K-1 event on HDnet so who knows.

Added Nick Diaz to the list of possible participants as Weekly's added him to its list. Since it's still being talked about at times for DREAM, my first thought there is the Mach fight for the DREAM WW Title.

Card updated with a huge headliner bout announced today-Kazushi Sakuraba vs. Kiyoshi Tamura. While both are only 3-2 in their last 5 they're still extremely popular in Japan, so this should be a huge boost to marketing/promotion for the card. Also, the previously reported Hansen-JZ bout was also confirmed today but there's no word on if Hansen's DREAM Lightweight TItle will be on the line.

Edit: Also added to the card were 3 K-1 Rules fights according to Mania-"And for those of you who enjoy watching young children kick each other in the face, K-1 Koshien will be holding the finals and semifinals of its ‘King of Under 18' tournament. There’s even rumors of a Kimbo Slice vs. Seth Petruzelli rematch, probably scheduled to take place in the opening round of the 2008 ‘Who Cares?’ grand prix."

Go Hellboy!


i agree, GO Hellboy!!


I just hope this will be live on the 31st, but my guess will be 2 days later on HDNET...At least we will get to see it..hopefully.

I would also hope Alvarez Diaz fight or at least something big added to the card.

HDNet signed the contract... The first K-1 event is on Dec 8th... I believe it's the GP finals!!! And they're going to do the K-1 and MAX tourney's next year... SHITYA!!!!

Crocop vs Overeem's back on

WAAAAR Overeem

DREAM Middleweight Champion Gegard Mousasi has signed on to the event, but he'll be doing kickboxing under K-1 rules. M-1 Global says he'll face Musashi, who is a 4-time K-1 Japan Tournament Champion. Mousasi-Musashi...say that 5 times fast.

Cro Cop vs. OVereem is off...for now. Probably will be pushed back to another event in '09. Overeem likely will still be on the card, another rumored foe is Sergei Kharitonov.

Both fighters have verbally committed to a Aoki / Alvarez match... This card is shaping up into all sorts of awesome...

Gotta love the Japanese.

Cavalcante vs Jansen
Tamura vs Sakuraba
Aoki vs Alvarez

Even though Cro cop vs Overeem would have been awesome, those are all great fights. And their just getting started

Hopefully they make more MMA fights than K-1 (kickboxing) fights with these guys, seems like the latter is being done just to drive up Japanese TV ratings.

Always is. Oh and DC the only place i've found it say the LW title is up is on wiki, but I have been told it will be a title fight so take it for what it's worth.

Has anybody tried contacting anyone at Sherdog's HQ? I can send them an e-mail asking for clarification. I'd imagine they'll know.
