Fedor and Barnett can go almost anywhere they want with their contracts. DREAM could get Kharitonov and maybe (if the Hepatitis rumour is false) Aleksander. Also they could get Arlovski and Overeem is already there. Then Mirko and JLB or Hunt.

The attendance at the last few DREAM events eclipsed the one at Affliction. The announcement of Mirko and Fedor in one tournament could get the biggest attendance in the history of Japanese MMA. Which they could not have at the OWGP 2 years ago.

A long shot I know, but hey It could happen.

That would be great. I would have to think that Fedor would run through the tournament, and add another belt to his resume. It would make for some great Dream cards.

Im thinking of a quarter final looking like this

Fedor vs Barnett (dangerous grappler vs dangerous grappler)

Mirko vs Hunt/JLB (tough match-up for a KO artist)

Aleks vs Kharitonov (well-rounded and heavy-handed beasts)

Andrei vs Overeem (Explosive fighters)

Really hope this happens.. HW is hands down my favorite division to watch and DREAM has already obtained some serious top HW's if they could get Fedor, AA, Barnett, and even Sylvia in there it would be a dream come true..

DREAM is really looking good right now as they continue to put on shows with non-stop action I cant wait for DREAM 6 hopefully Cro Cop keeps his word and fights on that card.

Although that sounds like a near-perfect tournament, I doubt Affliction is going to let some of their talent go to Dream for months....

They probably want to follow up the success of Banned with another card featuring the same guys.

Just think about the attention span of a casual mma fan......

I think they would, because this way they could team-up with DREAM and expand to Asia. Also this could lead to an even bigger enterprise. seeing as Trump is handling the business side, I think he would do this.

Even if DREAM was able to get all those names I doubt they have the budget to pull off something like this.
