I have to say this sets the best card for 08 bar pretty high. I believe there are 8 or 9 top 10 fighters on it with a few more fight's that still need to be filled that number could rise. IMO this should be in the main league.

We were able to watch Yarennoka live so I believe this should be, especially since K-1 is expanding to NA and Pride already had events here and ppv.

the only thing that would make this better would be if Yamamoto was in the tourney but he doesn't fight at lw anymore

I do believe they're the first fight in the Light Weight Grand Prix.

so they fight first? is it smart pitting two favorites together in the first round?

Well they have the #2, #5, #6, and #10 LW's in the world(as ranked by mma weekly) so your bound to have a few great fighters matched up in round #1.

If they did that I would call Dana and tell him I love him...hand to god.

whoever wins aoki vs. Gz is going to take the whole thing IMO

spectacular card though. i would give up my left leg for this card.

I would NEVER EVER talk smack about Dana again, and i will kiss is feet if he let it happen. although i would rather like too see Sherk in the tourney.

Throw Sherk in too, even though I personally dislike him. You never know he could be like Coleman in 2000.

Regardless, this is going to be a great card. Any early picks on favorites to win the tourney?

I'll go with JZ, IMHO he's in the top 2 LW's with Penn.

wow, put gomi, bj and sherk and all disputes would come to end and i would need new boxers

My pick for the tourney is Aoki, but the dark horse i think is Hansen if he doesn't have to fight Aoki. Remember he's the only guy to defeat JZ.

The Tournament is going to be fantastic. I cant wait.

The only thing that sucks is that Aoki and JZ fight each other in the first round..... I would like to see them both in the final. But just to see them both finally fight is great for me.

Will the winner be crowned the DREAM lightweight champion??

I have no idea why people think Aoki would beat JZ? He will bang him out quicksmart, Aoki is always in danger on the feet and JZ is just too fast and explosive, its a quick KO and then onto winning this quality tourney

Hope Cro Cop fights someone half decent! Would be funny if he gets a headkick KO and everyone says the old CC is back

Anyone know how many events this Grand Prix will take? I hope Crocop gets Kharitonov.
