Nice. Really looking forward to this. I love the GPs.

Anybody ever heard of the guys with no records?

Don't be surprised if Beebe is a very late scratch. Remember, he's fighting on this Saturday's UWC event and it's a title fight, so if Beebe takes too much damage he could be off.

This is true, but it will only be if he pulls out himself because of the lack of athletic commission. If he wants to fight injured, he could (not a good idea though).

True, but as long as he doesn't somehow get a medical suspension he should be fine. I'm sure he doesn't want to become another Antonio Silva.

The important thing for DREAM is that Kid will be participating. That alone should guarantee huge interest for round 2 assuming of course that Kid's ready by then. Hopefully he will be.

Awsome to hear, lol I counted the match ups to see if it was an odd number.

Actually if this is the final bracket adding a fighter wouldn't work until the 3rd rnd when there will only be three contestants left.

Pretty good card, hopefully Beebee won't be pulled. I'm kinda dissappointed with the many 0-0 guys though

The two guys that are 0-0 are at least legit.

The Korean (cannot remember his name) is Dong Sik Yoon's protege...

Joe Warren is a Greco-Roman World Champion
